Here she comes, Thierry Ennui...

Are we losing the London we love?

theguardian.com — For someone who really loves London, I'm starting to hate it a lot. The walk from my flat to Soho takes about 40 minutes, and on the way we pass One Commercial Street. It's made of grey glass, like a big powerless telly.

Up all night | Eva Wiseman | Life and style | The Guardian

theguardian.com — There's a time called 4am and there you will find me feeding a baby by the light of an iPhone 5. Our bedroom window faces the street. At the junction, almost facing each other, is the women's hostel and a block of student flats.

The seismic changes of having a baby

theguardian.com — Barnacle geese lay their eggs at the tops of cliffs, all blue and bleak, wind bloody everywhere. But their goslings, when they hatch, aren't yet able to fly, and the only food is in the grass at the bottom of the cliffs. The geese brood their eggs through an Arctic summer.

Sorry Lammily, your dumpy looks won’t fool many little girls

theguardian.com — Enter the new soldier in the Doll Wars: "Lammily", an anti-Barbie whose proportions are based on the measurements of the average 19-year-old American woman. In comparison to her improbably narrow 1950s predecessor, Lammily is shorter, browner and broader.

Barbie computer engineer story withdrawn after sexism row

theguardian.com — All future Barbie titles "will be written to inspire girls' imaginations and portray an empowered Barbie character", Barbie manufacturer Mattel has said, after apologising for the Barbie I Can Be A Computer Engineer book and pulling the problematic title from online sale.

The truth about women 'crying rape'

theguardian.com — There's this idea that a false allegation of sexual assault is the one weapon that shamed women wield. Men have fists and cash and the threat of death; women have this. A shy call to 999 on a Monday morning that leads to the slow sirens of police arresting her ex at work, a sorry officer shielding his head as he falls into the car.

The joy of x in texts, tweets and emails

theguardian.com — I'm pretty loose with my 'x's. Most emails, every text, descend into a quiet cacophony of mwahs, that gentle smack of lip on tooth. I've been this way since email began - my original Hotmail outbox is still there, suspended in internet amber, signatures heavy with xs and the odd o, too - but it wasn't until today that I really questioned it.

Having monograms on your clothes gives them more than a touch of class

theguardian.com — Once upon a time there were bags. There were notepads. There were pyjamas, and you knew they were your pyjamas because you had bought them, worn them, and they lived in your drawer underneath the T-shirt you won in a team-building exercise, and a pair of slipper socks. Those days have passed.

Lights, camera, lipstick: beauty vloggers are changing the face of the make-up industry

theguardian.com — We are in a warm black-walled room in central London and the air is thick with perfume. A group of teenage girls looks from face to face, not sure who should introduce themselves first. To start with they are shy, clutching cups of tea and lip gloss, but as time passes they relax.

Slenderman, Blair Witch… why we love creepy stories

theguardian.com — Walking home after seeing the Blair Witch Project at the local lido multiplex, a thing ran across the pavement in front of me and maybe it was a massive cat or maybe it was a deathly monster. I suppose I'll never know. But this is the joy of horror.

@tracey_thorn I have very creative plans for a combination of avocado suites. Just need a bathroom first.
