'The End of Longing' tells the story of four disillusioned thirty-somethings, each on the brink of an early mid-life crisis. Perry's character is Jack, an alcoholic who finds himself falling in love with 'high-class' prostitute Stephie.

London has taken the all-British tradition of the afternoon tea to the next level with new options ranging from the stylish to the quirky. From fairytales to cigars, here are the best afternoon teas in town.
It was the best work experience I've ever had, and if there's anything I've learnt it is to talk to as many people as possible, be confident, kind, and invest in a packet of biscuits.

My name is Sasha and I'm a procrastinator. That's right, a self-diagnosed, self-confessed time wasting expert with a diary full of back-to-back procrastination meetings. I gave up on eating lunch today as it was a distraction from the amount of procrastination I had to get done.

Whatever the reason, we're unlikely to break this habit anytime soon and I cheerfully refuse to. So here are six of the best places to imbibe with impunity
In today's fast-paced job market, you hardly have time to stop and think. Whether I was at work waiting on a client to dial in to a weekly call, or just out for pleasure waiting for a friend to arrive, the image I had in my head was the same. I kept seeing the timer from our work spreadsheets software rolling on and on, telling me I really didn't have time to waste.
With the end of Fair Fashion Month, our ethical fashion campaign with Fairphone came the judging for A Sustainable World 2016 - our annual Art competition which attracts applicants from across the world.
