1Old-world lov­ing rocks

Hu­mour, cour­tesy, car­ing – turns out the el­e­ments that make for a great re­la­tion­ship to­day are pretty much the ones your par­ents might have cited a gen­er­a­tion ago. For more, read the de­light­ful ‘Love lessons from women who write ro­mance nov­els’. Sigh.

2There’s a pink lip­stick for ev­ery­one From blush to neon, it’s one of the hap­pi­est hues of all – and it’s trendy, too. See page 52 for in­spi­ra­tion.

Looks re­ally, re­ally aren’t ev­ery­thing

Are you amazed at all those peo­ple pho­tograph­ing lat­tes at your morn­ing cof­fee spot? Then you’ll love ‘The In­sta­gram diet’, in which Molly Young spends a week eat­ing only pho­to­genic food. Talk about empty kilo­joules – and go­ing hun­gry for ap­pear­ance’s sake! We’re go­ing to give it se­ri­ous thought while we eat our not-very-pho­to­genic tomato soup.

‘Slut’. Now there’s a toxic word if ever there was one – a get-to­gether of the four ugly dwarves: Judge­men­tal, De­struc­tive, Hyp­o­crit­i­cal and Sanc­ti­mo­nious. Please read ‘The word that hurts us all’ and join the Unslut Revo­lu­tion!

Big bling is back

… And just in time for party sea­son. So be warned: you may want ev­ery­thing on our ‘Pretty large’ page.
