After splitting in 2016, it looks like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have rekindled their relationship, making their first public appearance together since the break up just yesterday.
And to say it’s an expected date choice is an understatement.
Katy and Orlando jetted off to Rome this weekend, but it wasn’t the ice cream or the Italian architecture that made it the destination of choice, instead it was a meeting with the Pope.
Yes, really. The couple attended a Unite the Cure conference in Vatican City, stopping for a meeting with Pope Francis, both dressed in black with Katy wearing a veil – protocol when meeting the Pope.
‘Happy Saturday everyone, I’m here in Rome at the Vatican, to speak on meditation,’ Katy Perry announced in a video that she posted on her Instagram Stories. ‘I’m with my momma, my darling [Orlando], and my manager, Steve! It’s a great day! I am so excited!’
She later posted a photo of her and Orlando meeting the Pope, captioning the snap: ‘Honored to be in the presence of His Holiness @franciscus’ compassionate heart and inclusivity. Thank you to @meditationbob and #TheCuraFoundation for making it all possible.’
‘I’m inspired and encouraged today, and grateful to share how meaningful transcendental meditation has been for me,’ she captioned a later post. ‘I hope you’ll choose to learn more about The Cure Foundation and how the newest technologies and cutting edge therapies are bringing hope to the world.’
We hope they had a lovely time in Rome, but as far as dates go, this is definitely a curveball choice.
Maybe they’ll opt for pizza and a film for date number two.
With the nuptials fast approaching, speculation is building around every aspect of the royal wedding day, from Meghan Markle’s wedding dress designer to who will be giving speeches at the reception.
Now that the bridal party has reportedly been confirmed – with it only announced last week that Prince William would be his brother’s best man, the focus has turned to the guest list, with a host of famous faces expected to be in attendance.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s ceremony boasted a star-studded guest list, from Victoria and David Beckham to Ellie Goulding. But with 33-year-old Harry running in celebrity circles and Meghan being a former Hollywood actress, their wedding guest list is set to be even more impressive, with the Beckhams, Priyanka Chopra and Elton John rumoured to be in attendance.
One A-list celebrity hinted that she might be turning down the invite however, with Grand Slam champion Serena Williams opening up about the wedding in a recent interview on Good Morning America.
Despite being a close friend of the bride, the tennis star explained about how the wedding might actually clash with work, telling the Good Morning America presenters that she was unsure if she would be able to attend.
‘I don’t know,’ she explained when asked if she’d be at the royal wedding. ‘I think it’s during one of the tournaments, I’ll see if I can make it.’
‘I’m obviously super happy for her,’ Williams explained of her friend. ‘She’s such a great girl and she is incredibly nice and I couldn’t be happier for her.’
Going on to impart some advice from her own wedding, she continued: ‘I just think it’s so important to enjoy the moment. And eat the cake – I didn’t get to eat mine at the wedding. We were just having so much fun.’
If there’s one thing we can rely on, it’s that the royal wedding is definitely going to be fun.
Amber Rudd has officially resigned as Home Secretary, a decision which has reportedly left Prime Minister Theresa May ‘very sad’ to see her go.
The decision came after significant pressure for Rudd to step down, prompted by her handling of the Windrush scandal, with claims that she misled Parliament over targets for removing illegal immigrants.
‘It is with great regret that I am resigning as home secretary,’ Amber Rudd wrote in her resignation letter to PM Theresa May. ‘I feel it is necessary to do so because I inadvertently misled the Home Affairs Select Committee over targets for removal of illegal immigrants during their questions on Windrush.’
She continued: ‘Since appearing before the select committee, I have reviewed the advice I was given on this issue and become aware of information provided to my office which makes mention of targets. I should have been aware of this, and I take full responsibility for the fact that I was not.
The Windrush scandal has rightly shone a light on an important issue for our country. As so often, the instincts of the British people are right. They want people who have a right to live here to be treated fairly and humanely, which has sometimes not been the case. But they also want the government to remove those who don’t have the right to be here. I had hoped in coming months to devise a policy that would allow the government to meet both these vital objectives – including bringing forward urgent legislation to ensure the rights of the Windrush generation are protected. The task force is working well, the residence cards are being issued well within the two weeks promised, and the design of the compensation scheme is making good progress.The Home Office is one of the great offices of state and its job is to keep people safe. It comes with the responsibility to fight terrorism, support and challenge the police and protect people against the abuse, as well as manage migration.’
‘It has been a great privilege to serve as your home secretary,’ she concluded. ‘I have seen first-hand the second to none commitment and bravery of our police, fire and intelligence services, they truly are the best in the world and we should rightly be extremely proud of them.’
‘Thank you for your letter of this evening tendering your resignation as home secretary,’ Theresa May replied. ‘I was very sorry to receive it, but understand your reasons for doing so’, before adding later, ‘I am very sorry to see you leaving the Home Office.’
What is a Home Secretary?
Home secretary is a British Cabinet level position, predominantly responsible for the internal affairs of England and Wales, and overseeing citizenship of the UK.
Who is replacing Amber Rudd as Home Secretary?
Theresa May accepted Amber Rudd’s resignation last night, already appointing Communities Secretary Sajid Javid as her replacement this morning, with Javid, whose parents are Pakistani, becoming the first ever Home Secretary from an ethnic minority background.
Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McClosky need no introduction. Their brand RIXO has only been going just over two years, yet their names get dropped just as often, if not more, than veteran designers amongst the fashion crowd.
Their story goes a bit like this: the friends went to the London College of Fashion together, were buyers at ASOS before spotting a gap in the market for vintage-inspired designs at a reasonable price. Fast forward a little and their feminine silk blouses, skirts and dresses are a go-to for celebs like Kylie Minogue and Margot Robbie, have a cult following on Instagram and have been picked up by the likes of Liberty and Net-A-Porter.
Suffice to say they’ve re-ignited our love for prints. Henrietta very kindly took a pause from taking over the world to talk us through the brand’s upcoming projects.
What was the inspiration behind Rixo?
RIXO is very much based on Orlagh and myself’s personal style and vintage pieces that we love. Inspiration for our collections comes form vintage fairs and flea markets that we go to – we are always on the hunt! Charity shops are also amazing to find great pieces. The inspiration for RIXO is quite bohemian and we love the 70s. Most importantly for us though is that we want to ensure we create shapes that flatter the woman’s body and use great quality materials. We are obsessed with our own personal silk vintage Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell dresses.
Your designs are very vintage-inspired, yet modern and wearable. How do you hit that balance?
It is a mixture of elements – firstly the print is key and it is also crucial that the correct print is put onto the correct shape. Not all prints suit all shapes so it’s getting the balance just right. The scale and colour of the print also has a huge impact on making sure each RIXO pieces has a modern appeal while still being vintage inspired. Then there is the material used… this is also key to ensure RIXO garment are wearable and flattering when worn. All three elements need to come together to make the perfectly vintage-inspired, yet modern and wearable piece.
You were one of the first ‘mid-range designers’ alongside STAUD and Ganni that are championing affordable luxury. How did you go about setting prices?
Pricing of RIXO is fundamental to us. We are constantly told that we could get double for our silk printed dresses – however we feel strongly about creating a product that is true value for money. We don’t have any investors and a benefit of that is that we don’t have margins to hit and we can be more flexible in following a path that we truly believe in and will pay off in the long run. We simply want to create something that girls our age could also afford and save up for and get something really special. It’s such a shame when as a fashion fan and customer you fall in love with something but you know it is completely out of your reach and unattainable. We want RIXO to be affordable and reasonable.
Many people don’t know that you are a small company. What does a typical day look like for you?
RIXO couldn’t be more hands on – we set up what we call ‘our baby’ from our living room and for the first two years only had one employee help us. When it comes to wholesale sales (to our retailers such as Selfridges, Net-a-Porter, Harvey Nichols) we do all this ourselves, press is something we are very keen to also keep in house, design and pretty much everything else RIXO.
We don’t really have a typical day – we are still a very reactive company and find it hard to say no to any opportunity. Weekends haven’t really existed for a long time – this weekend just gone we moved all our stock into a new office space… But every day is very different, it can be setting up a pop-up shop, meeting with our retailers about new in-store concept, painting and creating new designs, range building collections, critical path meetings with our supplier, finance meetings (tackling the more boring elements of running your own business such as VAT), press appointments, styling and shooting the product, sending our new collections to retailers worldwide… No rest for the wicked ha!
It’s a long process with many stages – we are still getting our heads around it, but at the moment we are working on SS19 so almost a year… someone once said to us there is no industry like the fashion industry for wishing your time away and it’s so true. It’s hard to be in the present as you always have to be looking ahead and planning a year in advance or even more!
What was the inspiration for your latest collection?
SS18, which is available now is very much ‘Under the Sea’ inspired – we spent hours painting, sketching and creating beautiful sea life elements – think coral, seahorses, crabs. Shells have been scaled up to create our aquamarine psychedelic shell print and as always we haven’t been afraid of colour so you will see vivid coral colours starfish immersed onto black and pink. Then for AW18 we have complete U-turn and our collections for winter are inspired by Disco and Studio 54 – it is heavily party-influenced and there are some fabulous sequin numbers!
You’ve had celebs like Kylie Minogue and Pandora Sykes wearing your designs, who else would you love see in them?
We recently had Margot Robbie in RIXO so that was a pinch-me moment. Personally, Kate Moss, I’d love to see her in RIXO, we are big fan girls of her as she just pulls off effortless style so naturally. In all honestly though it means more to us to see a random girl in the street wearing RIXO – as we know she has parted with her own money and that is one of the best things to see and is still pretty unreal to us.
You’ve been credited for making us fall in love with print again, and for highly Instagrammable dresses. Was the Insta following quite organic?
Completely organic and I think our naivety has worked in our favour, we have no marketing plan or social strategy (I wish we were that organised!) we literally make it up daily and I post an image I like… there is no science to the RIXO IG and we will keep it this way no matter how big the brand gowns. I think it is so important to have a natural communication with your audience and really be truthful with all your followers.
What’s next for Rixo?
Ahh – so much! We are launching in Harrods very soon which is a dream come true for us. We also are introducing accessories so you will be able to shop this full RIXO look – think bags, belts, jewellery, swimwear etc.… we are really focusing on increasing our categories. We have a very exciting collaboration with Laura Jackson that we will be unveiling during fashion week in September in London at our own and first LFW personation…. A busy few months ahead.
We all have our own ideas about what is healthy and what is not what has passed through us over the centuries. Ayurveda defines health as a perfect balance between mind, body and soul. How we treat our body and perceive our environment has an impact on our health and well-being. It is necessary to understand the cause of the disease and then to deal with it. What you eat affects your body a lot. This article refers to the general problem of hair loss, brittle nails and irregular sleep that can be controlled by adding certain regimens.
When faced with problems with hair loss, men and women want to understand the cause so they can know how to deal with it. The main causes of hair loss include a huge fluctuation of hormones (such as during menopause or as seen in PCOS) or, on the other hand, may be due to genetic causes (19459009) 1 ). The hormone, which is closely related to hair loss, is "cortisol" that is produced by the adrenal gland. Cortisol is excreted in response to stressful situations and actually helps convert sugar and fat into energy in response to stress 2 ).
Studies have shown that excess stress over a long period of time leads to high levels of cortisol that can lead to more harm than long-term benefit. This is because as long as our adrenal glands produce cortisol, they ultimately produce fewer other hormones that are essential for healthy hair growth

which are easily broken. Or nails are split vertically, or they can be peeled in the corners. Although there are several environmental reasons, brittle nails are caused primarily by hormonal imbalances. This is most prevalent in women who reach menopause, which leads to lower estrogen secretion in the body
Estrogen imbalance can also occur in the female body during excessive tension. Therefore, it is important to keep yourself away from stressful triggers and participate in exercise exercises such as yoga or writing magazines.  Insomnia (you can not sleep)
<img class = "size-full wp-image-446936" src = "http://cdn2.stylecraze.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/ When comes the question of sleep, there is a question that doctors never fail to ask: "Can not you fall fall asleep or fall asleep? you are not able to stay asleep? "
A common cause of sleep problems is mild to moderate hypoglycaemia (see: low blood sugar). In the case of hypoglycemia, the body is not correct the amount of glycogen and at night begins to consume its own muscle through the process of "glycosis." This cycle leads to tingling of the adrenal glands
Therefore, the adrenal glands reduce production of cortisol and are exclusively managed by another hormone – "epinephrine" also known as adrenaline.) When adrenaline accumulates in the body, our appetite is suppressed. In order to cure this, the cycle must be broken and more protein should be added to our daily foods  What is the root cause
The biological evidence that seems to be a common thread in all three problems points to the adrenal gland . Adrenal glands are located above each kidney and release different hormones that are responsible for many functions in the human body. The imbalance of hormonal secretion from the glands can be a cause of various health problems.  You can prevent hair loss, handle these brittle nails and sleep comfortably with this easy natural remedy, which includes the use of
Pure, natural honey x 2-4 tablespoons
Dried leaves parsley x 3-4 tablespoons
First add the Brazil nuts and parsley to the mixer and mix.
Brazil nuts x 2-4. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix them until they are evenly distributed. Store in a clean and dry glass container. Beware of Sunlight
To get the best results, consume 2 tablespoons of this organic recipe on an empty stomach. By taking this medicine two to three times a week, you can increase the overall functioning of the endocrine system, primarily the adrenal gland.
While the above method helps to increase adrenal function, other natural medicines may also be able to fight the three problems separately. Hibiscus flowers and leaves along with onion juice and black castor oil can help reduce hair fall. Fragile nails can be strengthened by taking iron and calcium supplements. Exercise and nutrition at the right time can help reduce sleep problems. You should not overlook these symptoms as they may be symptoms of other processes that are internally flowing in the body. Simple drugs can cure these problems naturally and in a healthy way. All that is required is a little will and patience!
It was revealed just after 11am on Friday that the prince’s full name is Louis Arthur Charles, a whole four days after the little one was born.
The public spent almost four days debating the new royal baby’s moniker – despite the couple announcing Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s names only two days after they were born.
Ahead of the announcements, royal enthusiasts reckoned the name was already revealed on the Royal Family website by accident, and was in fact Albert.
On the royal family’s official web page, there are specific pages about each member of the royal family, including Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge, featuring biographies and details about their work.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte also have pages, but at the moment visiting ‘royal.uk/prince-george‘ or ‘princess-charlotte‘ takes you to a page reading ‘Access Denied – You are not authorized to access this page’.
Here’s where things got interesting.
If you follow the same format with one of the bookies’ top choices for the new baby’s moniker, Prince Albert, you are given the same ‘Access Denied’ message.
Do the same thing with other favourites, like Prince Arthur, Prince Alexander or Prince James for example, and you just get ‘Page Not Found’. Head to the royal family’s website to see for yourself.
Now that the baby name has been announced though, a Prince Louis page is live with all the details of his birth.
This was probably all just an honest mistake, but we can’t help wondering if the royals were having us on this whole time.
We can just picture them all sat there laughing now…
Having a busy, busy life does not give us time to visit small pains and wounds, even when they are repeated periodically. We simply treat them with home-made or non-prescription medicines by a local pharmacist. But how would you know that they are not early symptoms of diseases that, if untreated, can lead to severe injuries or require surgical treatment? Read to find out what health problems can be related to the pain you suffer.
1. Breast pain
Breast pain is scary, whether it causes general discomfort or pain in pain. According to the 19459011 American Heart Association they may be caused by heart problems such as blockage or reduction of blood to the heart, rupture of a blood vessel or even pericarditis 1 ). A wide range of non-cardiac diseases can also cause chest pain. Burning chest pain can be caused by acid reflux. Abdominal pain caused by pancreatitis can reach the chest. Chest pain may also indicate that a blood clot has traveled to the lungs and blocked blood circulation.
2. Abdominal pain
Inflammation of the appendix is the most important cause of excruciating pain in the lower abdomen. But it can also be due to irritable bowels, according to medical specialists ( 2 ). Ovarian cyst, kidney stones, or abnormal tissue growth outside the uterus may also cause mild to severe pain in the abdomen.
3. ” width=”700″ height=”450″ />
Often caused by pulled muscles or ligaments, lower back pain can also indicate serious disorders such as spinal cord cancer, infected kidney and nerve damage, also known as cauda equine syndrome.
4. Upper abdominal pain
It can be life-threatening like a heart attack or even may be due to stones that form in your bladder. Liver disease or infection in the lungs that leads to pneumonia can also cause discomfort and upper abdominal pain.
5. Pelvic pain
Every woman is familiar with the location of this pain as she suffers from spasms during her monthly period. But if she is pregnant, it can mean a miscarriage. This pain can also be due to abnormalities in the uterus or ovaries, such as fibroids, abnormal tissue growth and cysts that cause pelvic pain. But this pain can occur regardless of sex if it is caused by hernia, colon cancer, kidney stone or Crohn's disease, which is an inflammatory bowel disease.  6. Warning Pain on the Left Top of the Body
The symbol of a heart attack, known as myocardial infarction, this pain begins as discomfort in the left shoulder and radiates to the left shoulder
7. Headaches  Shutterstock
They may be caused by exhaustion or tension and easy to treat, according to the National Health Service of the United Kingdom (19459015) 3 ). But the lab test for sudden, severe pain may reveal a brain aneurism in which a weakened artery has become larger. Alternatively, doctors in the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke in the United States warn that intense headaches, along with numbness, weakness or dizziness may be the first sign of a stroke 4 . Prolonged headache may mean that there is a tumor in the brain. Occasionally, light ear infections can cause headaches and side effects of some prescription drugs
8. Leg pain
If you resume physical exercise after a break or workout, you are bound to suffer from leg pain. The right break will make you prepare for the final feta for the next session in the gym. But if that does not help, then you can study the true cause of the pain, which may be arthritis or vein injury. Deep venous thrombosis or a blood clot in a vein that is deep within your body can also cause you a lot of pain. Usually painless varicose veins, which look twisted and large, can sometimes be the cause of leg pain.
9. Painful breasts
Bleeding hormones can cause it most of the time. This is not a symptom of breast cancer, as indicated by the National Breast Cancer Foundation ( 5 ). Mothers who breastfeed their babies may experience this pain due to fibrotic changes in the mammary glands. When it affects the cartilage that connects the sternum to the chest, a painful condition called a "costochondritis" occurs. Also, fibromyalgia, which is associated with all the muscles in the body, can also cause pain to the chest muscles.
Painful muscle or sore limb are not warning signs of serious health problems. They could go away with a little relaxation. But if you are not sure what is happening with your body or that of your close and dear, a check with the doctor will clarify your doubts whether you should be treated for a more complicated condition or not
Beards, tattoos, man buns and coffee art galore, the world is slowly being taken over by hipsters.
But some areas of the world are much more hipster-populous than others, new research has shown. MoveHub has published a list of the top 50 hipster cities in the world, calculated by a ‘Hipster Index.’
While the majority of the top 20 are US cities, Brighton and Hove has been ranked as the most hipster place in the world.
‘Because hipsters have such specific tastes like tattoos and artisan coffee and prefer less bustling city locations, we can map themaround the world quite accurately, which is really interesting,’ said Fred O’Brien, who oversaw the research for MoveHub.
‘You would struggle to find any other group that changes cities at the rate that hipsters do – once a city has been chosen as a trendy area, the hipsters bring in all sorts of new independent businesses and this injection of consumers can really transform these cities.’
