Weekly round up

Just in case you've been under a rock, we've put together a list of the stories that got our attention this week. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Call the fire brigade:

The Royal baby! We have to admit, Royal baby fever was in full swing this week at the office.

We followed twitter like crazy trying to keep up to date with Kate’s progress at the hospital, the birth, the announcement of the birth, choosing his name, the pizza they ate for dinner…. Ok, so maybe we got slightly carried away.

We loved the dress Kate wore when she was leaving the hospital but still can’t decide if it was a tribute or a coincidence? Maybe we’re reading too much into it? What do you think?

Red Hot:

The internet never fails to keep us entertained with its ridiculousness!

This week we were laughing out loud at some of the craziest Youtube videos that we have ever seen! We also did a group cringe at some of the worst wedding proposals ever. Why oh why do people film these things???

We also loved this gallery of some of the weird and crazy things Google caught foreigners doing on street view. It seems like privacy is certainly dead! 


This week, our editor Lili, wrote a great newsletter asking the big botox question; should we stand or surrender when it comes to plastic surgery? In the office, we’re completely divided, and it seems our readers feel the same. One thing we could agree on was that it is our decision to make and no one else’s.

It’s getting nippy:

There was one article that sparked a big debate on our site. The article was about Robin Thicke’s latest single ‘blurred lines.’ Robin’s controversial lyrics got him in a bit of trouble and his unrated music video sparked a host of parody versions. What do you think about the catchy tune?

Freezing cold:

This week OK! Magazine left us cold with a completely insensitive cover about the Duchess’s ‘post-pregnancy’ weight loss plan. The magazine ran the story just one day after the Duchess gave birth which we thought was rather tasteless! What do you think about the magazine cover?
