This dynamic between the vulnerable and the powerful brings a relevancy to the image of the Datura and other flowers by the New York-based photographer Andrew Zuckerman. The juxtaposition of rigidity and rigour and a fragile, almost feminine form gives these images their distinctive beauty.

Last week, our team published a photographic essay, Around the World in 80 Cabinets. The project invites you to peek inside bathroom cabinets around the world, from Australia to Uzbekistan. This is likely an invitation that few of us are able to resist.

Approaching Cameron House, the first thing I can see is the beautiful blue expanse of Loch Lomond. We're only 15 miles from Glasgow airport, but the surrounding green hills and fresh air signal the countryside at its best.

No, I didn't realize until 2011, when I met with a car accident which changed my life... I was a girl with full of life, love, creativity & happiness. A girl who was just like a kid & who never thought of any bad thing can ever happen to her or to anyone in her family.
Is there ever a time on the Channel 4 reality show, that one of the Sloane Rangers has a hair out of place? Even when their doing yoga, in a hottub or throwing drinks over each other, those Made In Chelsea girls have their locks perfectly coiffed to an inch of their life.
It was this mindset of exploring a place overlooked that led me to spend a couple of days in Bury St. Edmunds, a Suffolk town close to where I grew up. I'd passed through the place many a-time but never stuck around to see what was on offer.
People often comment that I smell like a bakery - not because I'm always stuffing my face with cakes (I'm a savoury kinda girl), but because I tend to favour sugary, homely scents for my everyday beauty products. So, with the return of The Great British Bake Off, I figured this was as good a time as any to look at bakery-inspired beauty.

You guys, it's that time of the year, when the prestigious competition Miss
Universe World 2013 opens for applications. Yes! I can feel it - this is my year. As I am yet to become a UK citizen, I will first have to win the Miss Denmark round - easy schmeasy!
