What John Waters taught me about eyeliner

theguardian.com — Divine shaved back her hairline in order to have more room for make-up. If that's not a handbook for living, then Christ, I don't know what is. I read about Pink Flamingos before I saw it - even in the 1990s, a film where the star literally eats shit was difficult to track down.

London property goes through the roof again

theguardian.com — Like stages of grief, the London housing market has come through denial and bargaining and has moved into the sixth stage: "Armando Iannucci sketch". The new £15bn housing project in Battersea, where flats start at £602,000, has planning permission for a 25-metre swimming pool that literally looks down on the rest of London.

Love in the time of technology: an app for every moment

Celebrity lifestyles for sale

theguardian.com — If you crave the advice of a woman just like you, except with bigger hair, newer jokes and far, far more money, then this is your time. Revel. Revel in the ever-multiplying number of celebrities who are now not just actors, not just writers, directors, models, producers, but also lifestyle brands.

Learning to love our bodies

theguardian.com — I'm trying to remember how I felt about my body when I was eight. Only I can't really remember having a body back then. I can remember being a chimpanzee. I can remember being a wrestler, and a vampire, and a sad clown, and a tree, but in none of these guises was my body anything other than an extension of my own mind.

What goes on inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl?

theguardian.com — Like Yves Klein's deep, uncomfortable blue, Pixar should patent the particular happysadness you feel when you emerge from seeing its films. The teary wonder at nature and humanity that comes from watching anthropomorphised lamps fall in love and causes one to skip from the cinema, leaping over a puddle of yeah-that-was-definitely-vomit, to shrug regretfully at the guy who failed to nick your wallet outside Wasabi, and to fall asleep with a magical sigh, and to dream.

Getting into the party spirit

theguardian.com — It was when I reached up to tie the balloons to our front door that the very weight of them made me sit down. It was Saturday, and it was the baby's first birthday.

Bake Off’s Mel and Sue: It’s just a show about cakes - but it means a lot to people

theguardian.com — The sun always shines in the world of The Great British Bake Off, an Arcadian land where the currency is compliments, innuendo and pie. It is an unseasonably hot day when I visit Mel Giedroyc, Sue Perkins, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood on the set of the sixth series of the biggest programme in Britain, and the tent smells of sugary sweat.

Bake Off’s Paul and Mary: We just work in a tent, judging bread

theguardian.com — After their portraits have been taken, Paul and Mary settle beside each other on Mel and Sue's vacated sofa, and Paul takes out his phone. Mary, with a cup of tea and a hot water bottle, fills the silence with polite small talk, while he scrolls intently.

Scared of summer? You should be…

theguardian.com — As summer broke, Paris Hilton boarded a small plane for an aerial tour of Dubai. Can you imagine anything hotter? Of course, you and I have experienced heat, too, this heat that feels like you're standing in a wind tunnel of all your past humiliations, farting past you one by one.

Enough pictures of dead babies on beaches. Reminiscent of anti-choice methods, waving photo banners outside the clinic.
