Raising Flat-Chested Daughters Who Eat Cake

ShareTweetPin I saw a magazine laying on the table of a hospital waiting room as I walked by, and I recognized it pretty quickly as one I used to read some thirty years ago. Before I knew it my own daughters would be old enough to pour through the pages of fashion magazines, and as I thought back to my own interactions with the likes of YM, Vogue, and Seventeen I hoped my daughters would have a stronger self-worth than I did back then. I remember staring at the glossy pages of my favorite read and eyeing the glistening cleavage on the young model on the page, envying the slope of her breasts as they played peekaboo with the unbuttoned …

A ruthless approach to decluttering completely transformed my life

Since watching an episode of Marie Kondos TV show, I have overhauled our family home and reaped mental, financial and professional rewards When I moved in with my husband, we found ourselves with two of everything. We sold furniture and donated kitchen utensils to charity. But, having lived alone, parting with more sentimental items was difficult. And, as I later discovered, my husband is a bit of a hoarder. He couldnt ditch his MDF TV cabinet; I was too attached to my impractical 50s Danish tub sofa. Things got worse after we had children. With the arrival of countless toys, books and kids clothes, it got out of hand. I am an introvert who loves being at home, but, as …

Outcry as Bolsonaro’s son questions value of democracy in Brazil

Carlos Bolsonaro, whose father is an admirer of Brazils former military dictatorship, accused of flirting with coup-mongering The rumbustious son of Brazils far-right president, he tweeted to his 1.3 million followers.

Democrats try to tempt Trump on guns as Beto beats drum for AR-15 buyback

Pelosi and Schumer speak to president on gun control while Buttigieg and Paul offer contrasting criticism of ORourkes rhetoric Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on Sunday offered Donald Trump a rare and highly symbolic bipartisan win if he can somehow force Republicans in the Senate to enact gun control legislation containing background check measures passed by the House this year. The House speaker and Senate minority leader said they would both join the president at the White House for a historic signing ceremony at the Rose Garden, if he can get Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell to act. That remains highly unlikely: close ties between Republican leaders and the gun rights lobby have led to legislative stasis on gun control …

Gillian Anderson talks about living in Britain, obsessive fans and dating Chewbacca Gillian Anderson is a woman of many duelling qualities, and it is hard to know quite what to expect when meeting her.
