Louise has two arms, two legs and one extra chromosome (Picture: Caroline Boudet/Facebook) Caroline Boudet is mum to a beautiful four-month-old girl called Louise. Louise has Down’s Syndrome and, since she was born, Caroline has been shocked by the number of insensitive comments she’s received. Earlier this week, the journalist and mum-of-two decided to list all the inappropriate things people say on her Facebook page, in a bid to make them think before they speak. Because, as she says, ‘words are important’. Caroline begins by saying: ‘Here is my baby girl, Louise. She is 4 months old, has two legs […] Read more →
Goodbye UK! (Picture: Getty) There is no doubt that University will always be the most fun filled days of your life. Because what can beat £1 pints, sleeping all day and enjoying the central heating the library had to offer? Nothing – except undertaking a study abroad semester/year. 1. Your accent was your best asset You were bamboozled at how your normal British accent all of a sudden was catching everyone’s attention and automatically propelled you to sex bomb status on campus. 2. So many food choices Your taste buds thought they had peaked when they tasted stuffed crust pizza […] Read more →
It’s about to get a lot harder to be a tourist in Venice (Picture: Getty) Planning a romantic trip to Venice in 2015? Well you may want to think again. Because the city has just banned wheelie suitcases.

In a statement Venice City Council explained: ‘The rules respond to the needs of many residents who have complained to the authorities in recent years about serious discomfort in their homes […] Read more →
He could be a Secret Service agent we just don’t know (Picture: Trunkster/Kickstarter) Luggage just got really sexy. The Trunkster is a zipperless suitcase with ‘intelligent’ features including a removable USB charger pack with up to 9 hours of charge, and a built-in digital scale – no more unpacking all your undies at the check-in desk. Whoop. It’s also GPS enabled which means you can track it anywhere in the world the next time Terminal 5 loses it. But, why are we even bothering with the other features? Because all you can see is the INCREDIBLE SLIDING DOOR. No longer […] Read more →
Nasty Nick’s back – but why? (Picture: BBC) EastEnders saw the return of Albert Square’s very own prince of darkness Nick Cotton. It was only a glimpse as the duff-duffs sounded, but it was enough to make viewers ridiculously excited. Why? Because Nasty Nick = BAD NEWS. Particularly for his long-suffering mother Dot. Now with Nick’s son Charlie, his other half Ronnie and their baby (Nick’s grandchild) in the mix, there’s going to be fireworks. What’s he come back for? Will he be good to his son’s new family? And when will we hear that legendary catchphrase ‘Hello, ma?’ All […] Read more →
The place of dreams and overdrafts (Picture: Instagram/Topshop) Because you go into Topshop and you just don’t understand anything in life, at all. 1. I haven’t been in Topshop in ages, this is a good idea, there’s always loads of things I want in here. Oh look, those coats are AMAZING. I really need a coat. See, good idea. 2. Ah, they’re £100, OK, right, I see. Hmm. 3. Topshop definitely wasn’t this expensive when I was a teenager. There’s no way my mum would have forked out £100 for a coat. 4. OH MY GOD A T-SHIRT WITH A […] Read more →
