Morning-after make-up

theguardian.com — This is the make-up equivalent of evoking FOMO, a literal #aboutlastnight all over your face. In your smudgy kohl is the suggestion that you have had a far better night than whoever you're meeting.

Breastfeeding is hard, so we should be softer on mothers

theguardian.com — It was a cold afternoon last December when a group of mothers staged a mass "nurse-in" outside Claridge's, their babies lunching for justice. It was a response to the hotel's recent unpleasantness - when a woman was asked to put a scarf over her baby's head as she breastfed her during high tea, there was a sort of uproar.

Will chaos magic reign over your wardrobe?

theguardian.com — Once there was normcore. Normcore was the future. Normcore was the way we wore jeans like Jerry Seinfeld. It was the way we wore socks with our sandals and T-shirts borrowed from our mum. In 2013 New York trend agency K-Hole used a description by science-fiction author William Gibson in his novel Pattern Recognition to flesh out its thesis: that the new style was anti-style.

Freshers’ week: a great time to take a crash course in laddism

theguardian.com — For some people, rather than a pub crawl, four hangovers and one Revel-sized ulcer, freshers' week is a lifestyle choice. The first taste of the end of your life, a series of dancefloors, a series of situations that spin from Dragons' Den to Take Me Out on the flip of a coin, alcohol.

The best for blue eye shadow

theguardian.com — Rather than brassy barmaid, the new blue is mystical, oceanic. Céline's models wore eyeshadow that looked like a deep lake. Big graphic stamps of blue. Turquoise, azure, sapphire - they had been styled as sulky fortune tellers, here to predict futures of love and disaster, and money spent in the Selfridges beauty hall.

The world's 50 most powerful blogs

theguardian.com — The following apology was published in the Observer's For the record column, Sunday March 16 2008 The article below said 'Psychodwarf' was Beppe Grillo's nickname for 'Mario Mastella, leader of the Popular-UDEUR centre-right party', but it's actually his nickname for Silvio Berlusconi. Mastella's first name is Clemente and Popular-UDEUR was part of Romano Prodi's centre-left coalition.

Why there is nothing hot about cool mums

theguardian.com — There are many things I don't want to become, but top of my list is "cool mum". Cool mum who sits up smoking with her 12-year-old and his friends who call her "bro"; cool mum who shares her make-up and relationship failures and talks about sex as if it's something nobody's scared of.

I wrote about that woman who got 12 bags of coke for her daughter's 18th, and the cult of the cool mum also: theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2…

The mindblowing expense of mindfulness

theguardian.com — There was a period in the late 1990s when it became fashionable to have a vibrator. To have a vibrator, and to talk about having a vibrator, and to give vibrators as gifts, and to display them on shelves as art, daring the BT man to comment on it, exposing his hatred for women.

20 years of eBay and all I got was a sweetcorn-shaped tea set

theguardian.com — Ebay is my Westfield, my diary, my time-killer, my downfall, and it's 20 years old today. I first signed up when I was 16 years old, I had to verify using my dad's credit card, hence every parcel I receive today still being addressed to Malcolm.

My One Direction fantasy

theguardian.com — It was a hot evening in central London, and the air in the Newsnight green room was heavy. Zayn Malik stood beneath the air-conditioning shaft, trying to cool down. The door opened, and he quickly rebuttoned his shirt. "So sorry about the heat, Zayn," whispered a shy assistant, blushing.

Instead of a column, today I wrote some One D slash fic. Beware, it's pretty erotic: gu.com/p/4c2qa/stw

For this week's column @EvaWiseman decided to write some one direction/corbyn fanfic. I'm SO aroused right now. theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2…
