The ability to create a vibe for an entire room to dance and let go is such an incredible way to connect with music and share your connection with other people. In particular the ability to build and mix a playlist to extreme heights and then drop a beat and see the whole crowd go nuts is just amazing.
The idea behind this experiment is to find out whether modern man has lost that ability to look after themselves when they're stripped of everyday creature comforts," explains Bear. "Without your smart phone, without your computer, can modern man still cut it?"
If you're planning a wedding in the near - or distant - future, take a tip from a celebrity: the rich and famous don't always pick the most lavish locations. Instead, they tend to seek out unique venues far from the madding crowds (and the prying lenses of the paparazzi).
My mother told me a few months after dad's death that he had often been distraught at what he felt was a self-inflicted illness. For me this was such an awful way for my father to approach the end of his life, especially a life which had provided so much joy to so many people. It is hard for me to admit, but I have felt angry with my dad since his death, because in a way he was right; it was self-inflicted. If he hadn't started smoking, or if he had given up in his twenties, thirties or even forties, I'm certain we would still be enjoying his glorious company today and for many years to come. However, it is not as simple as that.
Sadly many people don't use their curiosity. They have it, but it has become obsolete. We are born with this feature, that's why when we're children, our hunger for information is insatiable, we don't even care what the story is, we just want to be stimulated. That is how our brains grow and how, as more and more neurons connect, we become smarter.
As a feminist, I do feel frustrated by the lack of women in broadcasting but also think exploration of masculinity is just as valid as that of femininity. One is as important, complex and relevant as the other.
Walking in proved a bit of a mission although I was with my dad so I had a great time walking in whilst having a laugh.
Women aren't one-dimensional. No woman is either a madonna or a whore. But our habit of putting famous people into easily identifiable boxes means celebrity women often come off this way. The way famous women represent themselves and their brand... does tend to make them figureheads for a certain 'kind of woman'.
It's been an incredibly fun year being involved with Dragons Den, I've made some wonderful new friends, my fellow Dragons, and had the opportunity to invest in some really remarkable and talented young entrepreneurs. I'm thrilled at how well my first three investments are doing.
You need a bit of steel to go with the creativity but it is important to be a good boss as well as a good designer. Having Sienna in the business was obviously an amazing help because of the profile she has. We made a good team as she has incredible style and we share a fashion sensibility.
I love writing reviews, I really do. But this was one I was reluctant to write. No, not because it was not worth reviewing. Quite the opposite! Matakauri Lodge is SO wonderful that I want to keep it all to my selfish selfie self.
While any right-thinking person (especially a devoted Destiny's Child fan like myself) couldn't agree more with Beyoncé's inclusion as one of Time's 'Most Influential' people, I simply think she'd be an even stronger model if she didn't bare all, all of the time.
Thank you for representing the ideal role model for young women; a strong female who doesn't insist on jutting out her collar bones at every photo opportunity. You say what you think without any qualms and you're able to make fun of yourself.
Rather than trying to be different with what you wear, you try to be 'ardently ordinary' or 'endearingly awkward', and, for a character rarely seen out of his zip- up polyester cardigan and sweat pants, it means Derek is not just riding a Normcore wave, he's the king of the movement.
I initially wanted a chicken soup but then I realised I wanted something a bit more substantial. So I created this dish, which I suppose is a hybrid between a tagine and a light stew. I prepared this dish like a tagine in the sense of layering but added more water to it to create a soupy base.
When we get something we want badly, the wanting diminishes, which is great news until the next want comes along. This puts us into a constant state of want, need, lust, greed and most of the seven deadly sins... The other problem is because we never really feel like we get what we want because there's always someone who has more, we live in a constant state of wanting. This need for success is embedded in our culture. If we don't reach these self- imposed goals, we may experience a sense of worthlessness. In my opinion this is why so many people over-shop.
