We know what it's like - you clock in after a long week at work and all you want to do is pick up the phone, dial your local curry-chinese-pizza-thai-turkish takeaway and indulge in some naughty nibbles. RESIST! You can cook incredible dishes for a fraction of the price, triple the flavour and all in the time you're left waiting for the doorbell to ding.
I'm in the midst of research for my next book. I feel like while I'm learning about what happens in our brains, I'm learning about 'me' and what I can do about it. Hurrah! I don't feel so crazy.
The six-year-old started screaming. I turned round to see blood and saliva flying towards me and all over his face. I started yelling in shock and shouted to the four-year-old "what have you done?" What he had done was knock one of his brother's teeth out!
In this video I talk about a very popular and sometimes confusing topic. CARBS! I explain the difference between simple and complex carbs aka fast and slow. I also explains the do's and don'ts of adding this vital nutrient into your diet and why TOWIES 'No carbs before Marbs' motto is NOT the long term answer to your best body.
I wrote this blog, because so many women have been asking me if I can help them to change from someone who is eternally seeking to be "thin", trying every fad diet, wasting their lives looking for the next "skinny" fix, and are miserable in the meantime. They want to know how they can lose that mindset and get healthy and strong instead...
28-year-old Drake looked pretty damn horrified when 56-year-old Madge finally released him from her embrace. Which got me thinking: Would the world still think the kiss was funny if Madonna was a guy and Drake was a girl?
In an unusual configuration of topics, some important brand protection questions have arisen due to the purchase of two x-rated domain names by pop star Taylor Swift.
The first of the two nights was very strange. I've been coming here to Japan for well over 20 yrs now and I can safely say that was the oddest gig I've EVER done. The crowd were silent in between songs. They usually are quiet but this mob were SILENT!!
Essex, a professional media performer, plays the village idiot very well, and is currently filming a programme to work out why he should vote and how Westminster works. Essex is, as one might have reasonably assumed considering his media image, a voting virgin.
But it now seems a matter of time before a television channel completely rebrands itself to become CLARKSON TV. OK, that's basically what Dave is now. But what would that channel look like? Probably something like this...
Those who are jumping on the bandwagon to mock Essex really need to take a long hard look at themselves. We all say we want greater diversity in politics, but if we shoot down anyone from outside who tries to get involved, we're going to end up with the same old order.
It's fair to say Paris has progressed on the island over the last two seasons: starting with a four week Wednesday night residency back in 2013, she's now taking over Amnesia's Main Room whilst Matinee will control The Terrace for an incredible nine week Saturday night residency this year.
Katie Hopkins has an undiplomatic but pertinent point about the NHS. The dementia charities, instead of getting on their high horse, should be saying "we need to treat dementia sufferers differently and with dignity".
Even when I headed up MTV Base, Idris would come and see me and send me any music he was working on. So it was a huge, wonderful surprise to me few years back, when I heard that my old mate was now a Hollywood star.
Life has to be more than just being about what's absolutely necessary, we have a network around us which needs an element of input and equality in order to thrive. What is a life without wonderful friendships and relationships? All contributing to adding layers and enriching our experience along whatever direction we pursue, it can be a lonely path when selfishness prevails, even if it is only because you initially just wanted to cope and not let anyone down.
Last week I made the mistake of writing one of those Open Letters you hear about. I wrote it in response to a request from Garbage's management company that they'd like my permission to use a photo that I took and I own in a book they intend to publish and sell for money. But they'd like to not pay me. Since it went out on the internet it's caused a huge debate...
