“'long live our rekindled romance with books”

The great slowdown of 2020 had many unintended consequences – a boom in book sales turned out to be one of them. Despite a decline in sales for the past few years, as lockdown rolled on we collectively turned to the comfort of literature as our existences simplified. Whether nostalgia, an abundance of time, a need to escape into another world while we were stuck in one place, or just our need for an entertaining break from our screen-fuelled working days, our love of books was rekindled and across the UK we bought a mere 202 million of them. We devoured stories, lost ourselves in the lives of others, and allowed our brains the space and freedom to build worlds from words. Perhaps it is not surprising then that many…

“i’m still embarrassed of my body hair”

words: billie bhatia “I would love to be like that, but…” might be one of my most-used phrases. I see someone doing something inspiring and boundary-pushing, something that is brave, and while I am quick to applaud it, personally, my own insecurities hold me back from following in their footsteps. As we begin to confront our bodies after a year in hiding, the conversation around body hair has resurfaced louder than ever. In the space of a week, I saw model and activist Ashley Graham create a TikTok video showing her growing leg hair – encouraging her millions of followers to do the same – and a photograph of upper-lip hair covered in blue mascara circulating on social media. Like I said, I applaud both of these lenses on body hair,…

the new dating apps using science to help you find love

feature After a year of swipe fatigue, app creators are harnessing the latest technology to help us date smarter. But do they work, asks Hollie Richardson? I want to be in a relationship. It’s taken 32 years and three lockdowns to get here, but the pandemic taught me that I’m happy with my life and ready to share it. The problem is, I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic. Until recently, I’d never committed to online dating because I always expected a man who looks a lot like Colin Firth to come up to me in the coffee shop queue one day and declare that he likes me very much, just as I am. This is a problem because I am not the protagonist in a Richard Curtis film, and a 2019…
