Are Things Moving Too Fast? How (and Why) to Take It Slow
But common sense tells us that abandoning reality to fall deep into a new relationship is risky business. While it might feel crazily good to speed from zero to one hundred in a matter of hours with a new partner, feeling such emotional intensity
Why Outfit Repeating Is the Coolest Thing You Can Do for the Planet
In a culture shaped by fast fashion, one of the biggest modern-day sins you can commit is to wear the same outfit on TikTok or Instagram more than once.

Has Main Character Energy Gone Too Far?
International Women's Day is a holiday in Berlin – why not in the UK?
Instead, I met up with a friend to enjoy one of the first days of spring weather.
With Berlin still in the midst of lockdown, we treated ourselves to takeaway falafel, which we enjoyed sitting by the canal, watching ducks swim past as we tucked into lunch.

Going out clubbing tonight? Why don't you try it sober?
When England won 2-0, I celebrated like a true Brit: By getting completely drunk and throwing up everywhere.
The next morning, I woke up with a terrible hangover and even worse post-drinking regret. I called my dad for moral support.
‘Kez, half of England probably threw up last night,’ he reassured me. ‘And we’re through to the quarter-finals!’

Black Friday isn’t just bad for your wallet, it’s damaging the climate
The same survey also revealed that 24 per cent of shoppers regret their Black Friday bargains. But the impact of these unwanted purchases goes beyond a tinge of self-loathing when checking your post-Black Friday bank balance.

Eco-friendly brides share how they reused and upcycled their wedding dresses
But investing so much money, time and fabric into a wedding dress that you only wear once makes little sense.
As we become increasingly aware of the fashion industry’s staggering contribution to global warming, wearing an outfit on just one occasion is the ultimate fashion faux pas: 2021’s version of pairing socks with sandals.
The Post-Lockdown Stress of Having the 'Best Night Out Ever'

Opinion: Love Island has to end its toxic relationship with fast fashion
Unlike the majority of former contestants, who break up mere weeks after declaring undying love under the cameras and the sun, Love Island has been engaged in a long-term, if toxic, relationship wi
