Next time you see me at a party wearing a Katy Perry-esque Geisha dress and Pharelle-style headdress, spare me the sanctimonious cultural appropriation lecture about being insulting to the Japanese and Native Americans, but by all means, take the piss out of me for dressing like a tit.

Here's a personal question. Have you ever been constipated for a week? How about for up to 4 days on a regular (oh the irony) basis? I have. And it's horrible.

A Letter to My Friend With Post Natal Depression

Kim Davies

My dear friend, you're going through a really rough patch, I can see it in your eyes. As a newly-minted Mum, you're still rocked to the core by the brutality of a difficult birth. You still feel like you are watching it over and over again as a third person, suspended from the ceiling in the delivery suite, no longer an active participant in the choices that may affect you for years.

Why Do We Hate Young Men So Much?

Stephen Hull

It's open season on young men - particularly those plying a trade as international footballers (mismatched boots and all) in Brazil.... I'm not saying footballers are a suicide risk, but I strongly feel that for the everyday men, who may not be skilled with the emotional intelligence and support to deal with the pressure associated with being 'a man', then our attitudes, expectations and treatment should be examined.

For the last year and a half, I have taken a photo of myself almost every day using an app to track my hair growth. I started three months after chemo finished, which is why I look like a baby chick in the initial pics. I also went make-up free in all the photos so that I could track my eyelash and eyebrow growth - a whole year of no make-up selfies, if you will.

Recipe of the Week: Vongole With Tomato, Zucchini, Parsley, White Wine and Garlic

This recipe is so easy you have to try it. It's a really delicious lunch dish or even something to put in the middle of the table. Make sure you clean your clams well as you do not want any grit. The combination of the garlicky clams with courgette and tomato is lovely. It's a bowl of clams with a lovely soupy juice that has the tender courgettes. The grilled bread is to mop up all the juice. If you cannot get clams try mussels it works well. Have a great week!
