Ugh. Anyway.

The first time we kissed, I was barefoot. In Greenwich Village. In the late-summer. This is: Disgusting. However, I could have been standing in a puddle of bubonic plague and giardia for all I cared; all I knew was that he had me pressed up against the side of a building (It was NYU. It […]

DID you love or loathe your school uniform at school? I flipping hated mine. We had a grey kilt-skirt, a blue-and-white striped blouse and navy blazer – and my least favourite part was the navy tights. But no matter how unstylish it was, at least my peers and I all looked the same. The only things we could switch up were our shoes and bags. Peta Todd on the importance of school uniform to prevent kids from bullying each other I vividly remember trying to persuade my mum to buy me Kickers or Patrick Cox shoes, as they were THE ones to have. But my begging came to nothing as my mum handed me the Freemans catalogue to pick some shoes from – my trotters are only a size six, but were size four when aged about seven. This week, Education Secretary Damian Hinds backed schools that enforce strict school-uniform policies – including for shoes – in a bid to stop “footwear competitiveness”. I fully support this. It’s so sad that children are being bullied because they don’t have the latest designer trainers or expensive backpacks. The mum-of-four supports the Education Secretary backing schools with strict school uniform policies Social media is more powerful than ever and the pressure on our children to have all the latest gear is already sky-high. Surely, creating an environment where they are all equal can only be a good thing? My daughter’s school go one step further – all pupils have to wear school coats, gloves, scarves, bags and even the same colour hair bands. Not only do they all always look impeccable, they are all the same. The full lot probably costs roughly £50 to £60, so pretty competitive with the high street – but all from selected uniform shops, in our case.

I understand that, in real life, jealously, greed and keeping up with the Joneses are all very real – but do we really need these negative feelings distracting our children at school?

Article and photos from hienalouca.com

Sleep and I have an uneasy relationship. Each morning, in the small hours, a silent but insistent alarm clock goes off in my head and I’m awake, restless and alert.

I haven’t slept soundly since the menopause a decade ago, but when I turned 60 — and the hot flushes subsided — I thought there would be an improvement. But the problem persisted; intractable, debilitating.

I try to still my racing mind: I meditate, listen to music, read; count sheep. The windows are heavily curtained. My sheets are Egyptian cotton, my pillows, scented with lavender, are Hungarian goose down. I have a huge bed and a duvet as light as air. The window is open a crack.

All the conditions are propitious. Sleep should envelop me, but it eludes me.

After writing my last blog about Japanese author Murakami, I was taken back to memories of my time living in Japan. One outstanding memory for me is the time I spent with Japanese friends during the important New Year festival of Shogatsu. This occasion is shared equally between Japan’s two most common religions; Buddhism and […]

DONOVAN” premiere party hosted by GREY GOOSE Vodka and Soho House at Soho House Toronto on September 10, 2018 in Toronto, Canada. Paris and Zylka, 33, called it quits in November 2018 after two years together. The source tells Us that the actor is “having a good time with his guy friends” after the breakup.

She’d rather be alone and happy.” The Simple Life alum previously dated model Jason Shaw, Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter, The Hills star Doug Reinhardt, nightclub owner Cy Waits, model River Viiperi and businessman Thomas Gross.
