WORK TRENDS FOR 2017

Apart from the usual heels, midi skirts and tailored trousers we wear to work, they are not aways comfortable.

QUEEN CELEBRATES 90TH BIRTHDAY

maxresdefault

Today, the Queen will celebrate her 90th birthday, making her the UK’s first-ever nonagenarian monarch. While today is her official birthday, the main focus of the celebrations will be held on her state birthday in June – a tradition started by George II in 1748; born in November, he felt the weather would be too cold at that time of year for his annual birthday parade so instead combined the celebrations with the annual spring military parade known as Trooping the Colour. This year, the event will take place on 11th June, the day after the Duke of Edinburgh’s 95th birthday, and will be accompanied by other events throughout the weekend, including The Patron’s Lunch – a picnic on The Mall for 10,000 people. Pub opening hours will be extended on Friday 10th June in honour of the occasion. Festivities will also be held from 12-15th May at Windsor Castle, culminating with a 90-minute show featuring performances from the likes of Kylie Mino.

A Girl Friend Is Often Better Than a Boyfriend

You-Still-Need-Your-Girlfriends

Of course, it’s nice to have someone to cuddle with on rainy nights and binge-watch Game of Thrones with, but a smart girl lives by the old adage that men may come and go but your girlfriends will be there forever. In light of the recent press surrounding the undeniable power of the single woman and the fact that—according to the publication—only (New York Magazine) around 20 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 are currently married, compared to 60 percent just a few decades ago, we decided to take a minute to celebrate the merits of female friendships. Because truly great girlfriends are not only important in today’s world, they’re imperative. Here, five reasons why girlfriends are better than boyfriends.
