  1. Oscars 2016: the Dresses, the Winners and Our Favourite Moments

    The Oscars took place just a few hours ago and they're what everybody's talking about (ourselves included)! In case you missed it, we've put together everything you need to know: the dresses, the winners and of course, the moment when our beloved Leo finally got his long-deserved golden statue.

    The gowns
    Blue seemed to be having a big moment, will several actresses sporting the colour, from royal blue to purple-tinted hues and lighter, almost silver-like shades. Green was also a favourite, as well as the classic black and white. And extra points to Charlize Theron, Alicia Vikander and Margot Robbie for choosing something different - Charlize was stunning in her floor-sweeping red dress, Alicia looked flawless in her yellow gown and Margot gave us a super dose of glam that felt effortlessly elegant. But that's just us... Check out the photos below and tell us who were your favourites.

    In case you missed the Brit Awards (how could anyone, really), here's our own take on the best and worst dressed of the evening.

    The best dressed
    Rihanna matched her eyeshadow to her dress and Kylie Minogue's twirly number was just too cute, while singer Tallia Storm looked lovely in her embellished dress.

    Mum's (1)

    We all know that mums always, but ALWAYS know what’s best for us, even if we sometimes fail to see it. And because Mother’s Day is right around the corner, we’ve put together a list of mum-isms that never get old.

    Here’s our list:
    1. Did you brush your teeth?
    2. Don't go out with a wet head, you'll catch cold.
    3. Don't sit too close to the television; it'll ruin your eyes.
    4. Do you think this is a hotel? You can't just come here only to sleep.
    5. Because I SAID SO.
    6. Just wait until we get home.
    7. It's no use crying over spilt milk.
    8. Don’t make me come in there!
    9. Eat your carrots, or you won’t be able to see in the dark.
    10. Turn off that light. Do you think we own the electric company?
    11. I said CLOSE the door, not S

  4. We've Got Your Valentine's Day Breakfast Sorted

    Not sure what to do this Valentine’s Day to surprise your other half? Breakfast in bed is always a winning option and Fern Green’s Bacon & Egg Toast Muffins, featured in her book Breakfast: Morning, Noon & Night (you can get it here), a great way to someone's heart.

    Not only is bacon and eggs such a classic combo, but also easy to pull together – yep, even you can do it! For this recipe, you can also use puff pastry or corn tortillas, in case you’re wheat intolerant. Plus, you can replace the bacon with prosciutto and add sun-dried tomatoes and slices of mozzarella. A standard muffin tin works well, but you can also use ramekins or dariole moulds.
