• How to tie the perfect Windsor knot

    This video shows you how to tie the don of all neck ties; it can only be the
    full Windsor! Follow this simple guide to tying a perfect full Windsor knot and
    you'll soon be dressing like the best of them.

    Step 1: You will need:

    •      1 tie
    •      1 mirror

    Step 2: Prepare

    Turn up the collar of your shirt and do up your top button. Drape the tie around your neck with the main seam facing inwards. The wider end should be on the side of your dominant hand, so if you're right handed it goes on the right side, and if you're left handed, on the left side.

    Step 3: Position your tie

    If you look carefully you will see a seam on the front of the narrow end of the tie. Cross the wider end of the tie over the seam. This will ensure that when finished, your tie is the correct length and reaches to your waistline. Wearing it too short or too long will not look good.

    Step 4: Up, under, over

    From the starting position pass the wide end up through the middle of the loop around your neck. Bring the wide

  • These gold and diamond sandals cost £140,000! 

     

     

    We certainly understand the obsession with shoes, but we’re no Imelda Marcos (the former Philippine first lady owned 1,200 pairs). We’ve definitely shelled out big bucks on fancy heels, but we’re no Carrie Bradshaw (she once realized she’d spend £24,000 on shoes).

    We know the market is flooded with some ludicrous over-the-top fashion items these days from designer sweatpants to bedazzled bikinis, but would you ever spend £140,000 on a pair of shoes? Because they exist, and we think they’re totally nuts!

    British jewelry designer Christopher Michale Shellis has essentially created stunning accessories for your feet. Made with solid gold and 30 carats of diamonds, they’re sure to infuse bling in your each and every step.

    "The aim of this was to create a unique form of jewelry which you can wear on your feet.” the designer told the Telegraph. “It's a bit like if you found these on an archaeological

  • Easter is fast approaching, and eggs have been a traditional symbol of the holiday for thousands of years. But what about unusual eggs and egg oddities?

    Take a look at this truly bizarre egg:

    As you can see in the video, the
    whole, un-cracked egg is much larger and heavier than a regular-sized
    egg, and when opened - as well as its own yolk and white - it also
    reveals a ‘hidden’ egg inside, which is also then cracked to reveal a
    yolk and a white.

    According to Richard Kempsey, Farms Director at Clarence Court, this is a rare occurrence, but can be down to an upset in the hen’s ovulation sequence or as a result of a shock.

    He explains: “The hen’s egg takes around 20 hours to complete its journey down the oviduct. The eggshell is formed round the egg in the last quarter of the oviduct. Very rarely the complete egg becomes stationary in the oviduct where a young hen gets its sequence wrong or suffers a shock. A complete new shell is then formed around the already complete egg resulting

  • Controversy has erupted over sales of a new T-shirt which feature an anti-eating quote supermodel Kate moss gave in an interview almost two years ago.

    The saying ‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’ – which Moss said is a motto she lives by - is emblazoned on a  child’s T-shirt retailing for £11.65.

    Website www.zazzle.co.uk is selling the t-shirt as part of a ‘size zero slogan’ merchandise range which includes a ‘please don’t feed the model’ babygrow for £17.

    Moss initially uttered the infamous phrase in November 2009 during an interview with fashion news website WWD.
    When the svelte supermodel was asked if she lived by any maxims, she replied: “There are loads of mottos. There’s ‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’. That’s one of them.”

    “You try and remember, but it never works,”  she added.

    Five reasons you shouldn't long to be thin

    Now the phrase has re-emerged in T-shirt form, sparking outrage among eating disorder experts who have called for a ban on adverts for the

  • Myleene Klass is the latest celebrity to give her baby an unusual name after calling her daughter Hero. She was questioned about the decision on Twitter when one follower tweeted, “Is there any chance you could change your mind and give her a name she might appreciate in ten years?”

    Defending the name choice, Klass shot back, “Are you crazy?! Her name's amazing!” We agree Myleene, and let’s be honest; ‘Hero’ is far nicer than many other dodgy celebrity baby names.

    Here are some of the worst offenders:

    The name: Princess Tiaamii
    The famous parents: Jordan and Peter Andre
    Attention-seeking Jordan drummed up some more free publicity for herself by giving her daughter a silly name. In her mind ‘Princess Tiaamii’ is undoubtedly regal, adorable and sweet. For the rest of us it’s just a bit tacky.

    The name: Buddy Bear
    The parent: Jamie Oliver
    Jamie’s other kids Poppy, Daisy and Petal got off lightly with their pretty floral names. By the time the celebrity chef’s son came along he’d obviously
