Weekend Wonderings

Happy Saturday, readers!  A bit of a link round-up for you today, bringing you the best things I read on the Internet over the last couple of weeks, courtesy of Mr K, my friends and my Twitter feed.

There are no grown-ups, I promise you.  Everyone is faking it, all the time

It turns out holding up signs and hashtags are no substitutes for actually bringing back our girlsSo what do we do now?

This woman had her face photoshopped in 25 countries, to test global beauty standards.  The results are astonishing.  There is no one global beauty ideal.  What does that tell you? 

This man lost his wife, and instead of rage, he revolutionised the NHS.  This is a long read, but an extraordinary one. 

Nigella Lawson is the face of Saatchi “throttle-art”.  I can’t believe that’s a sentence.  But it is.  But what about her? 

Meet the man who’s making a profit and an industry from extra-marital affairs.  He’s vile, but he’s got a hell of a business plan. 

We believed Rolf Harris was an eccentric, kindly, bumbling old man.  We must learn to look beneath the surface.

Aisling and I have a megatron Lauren Laverne crush.  She write about how having a baby can simplify your life, and it’s bang on. 

And finally….James.  Oh JAMES.  The train dispatcher who defines what it means to be a gentleman.

    I know I’m commenting a bit late, but I’m just catching up and I’ve just read the James article…I nearly cried at my desk, thank you for sharing. I now need to find an excuse to go to St Albans!

Hello! We're Clare, Aisling and Anna and welcome to a corner of the world where smart, flawed, real women talk about the bigger picture; about their experiences, stories and opinions on all aspects of being a woman today, from marriage to feminism to pretty, too.
