Trust is something that can be hard to gain, but is really rather important in long-term relationships. Despite what you might read in the tabloids, going behind someone's back for anything is not something that is recommended by anyone who's worth listening to.However, tabloids thrive on stories of mistrust, scandal, and drama. Take the Daily Mail, for example. Hardly a week goes by without them printing something they've

Plenty of mothers in the US probably think that buying shampoos from Johnson & Johnson is good for their babies, however, it appears that Johnson & Johnson’s baby shampoos have potentially harmful chemicals in them. Even worse, Johnson & Johnson aren’t in much of a hurry to remedy this (carcinogenic) problem.

A new film exposes the way representations of women in the media lead to under-representation of women in positions of power. And it's long overdue."You can't be what you can't see".

Rachel Maddow was one of my favourite political commentators during the 2008 presidential election, and now that those damn elections are up and running again, my love for her has been rekindled. Recently, Mitt Romney declared to Mike Huckabee that he is anti-abortion, and would "absolutely" support a bill stating that life starts at conception, thus banning abortion, but also making most forms of hormonal contraception illegal, and leaving miscarriage to potentially be invest...

When faced with an unexpectedly long wait for something, I often turn to magazines in order to fill time in a way that requires as little brain and mobile phone battery power as possible.

Guys are notoriously hard to shop for. They already have a nice watch; ties are boring; porn is creepy. That leaves basketball tickets, bottles of 20-year-old Scotch, and iPads. Unless! Is your man a politician? Well, then, Ladies, get him the gift of a lifetime: inappropriate sexual innuendo!Yes, Ladies, when a birthday rolls around for the ex-President-who-has-everything, why not gift him a tawdry remembrance of past sex scandals? Politicians and sex scandals go hand in hand! Or han...

The Osbournes as a family have been slated and criticised in the tabloids, and their matriarch Sharon Osbourne has made a career out of being foul-mouthed, brash and at times rather nasty. Sharon has put her foot in her mouth plenty of times, and now it seems the act of making a career by being harshly judgemental of other people has been passed on to her youngest daughter, Kelly.
