What do extravagant presents actually mean? — So, Jay Z may have bought wife Beyoncé a decorative dragon's egg, acquired from the set of Game Of Thrones. According to GoT star Emilia Clarke, who leaked the rumour in a recent interview, the eggs are "really, really, really expensive and they are really f**king heavy and serious works of art".

Beauty: new brow products — I've become very fond of brow pens in recent years. They deposit a translucent ink that seems to give just enough coverage to fill in gaps and disguise my expanding population of greys, only without any harshness. They're ideal if you're wearing lots of eyeshadow, when a softer brow often looks more modern, less try-hard than dark, sharp lines.

No such thing as TMI — Last Thursday, social media was awash with people declaring their intention to vote in the general election. There were selfies taken against polling station signs, a hashtag for pictures of dogs waiting patiently outside voting booths, photos of election-night takeaways and (in my case, woefully premature) glasses of prosecco to toast the results.

Beauty: top facial hair removers — I know many women who revel in their greying hair and feel perfectly fine about the odd wrinkle. But I don't know anyone who's happy to cross the Rubicon of ageing into proud facial hair-wearer. I'm all too aware that, after around the age of 35, rogue hairs begin to sprout from the chin, upper lip and/or cheeks, and at increasingly alarming speed.

Sali Hughes in conversation with Caroline Criado-Perez — To celebrate the release of Caroline Criado-Perez's new book, Do it like a Woman, the activist spoke to Sali Hughes for The Pool about what it's like to be a woman online today By Sali Hughes Do it like a Woman and Change the World by Caroline Criado-Perez is published by Portobello Books.

Proud to be prude — My late father - not someone who could usually claim great advice (or indeed the dispensing of any advice) as a skill - once told me, "Never trust the physically uninhibited." And the older I get, the more I'm inclined to agree.

Ask An Adult: ‘What Really Happens When You Move In With Your Boyfriend?’ — Sali Hughes | Contributing Writer | Tuesday, 3 June 2014 The Debrief: Clue: you'll need to establish bathroom politics pronto Illustration by Ellie Andrews I am 39 and have lived with four men. Which means when it comes to cohabiting, I know a lot.

Why twitter is the new dating frontier — I met my boyfriend Dan on Twitter. Yes, really. Modern? Certainly. A bit embarrassing? Perhaps, to some. Common? Increasingly. In just one hour, late on a Wednesday night, I received messages from over 100 people saying they, too, had found love on Twitter. Many had stories similar to mine, of friendship that blossomed at a manageable pace.

Beauty: some wrinkle creams really work — Retinoids (compounds related to vitamin A) are a rare thing in beauty - anti-ageing ingredients that we know help reduce wrinkles and other visible signs of ageing. Historically, it's been argued that only prescription-strength retinol products are concentrated enough to cause change, but the clinical evidence no longer concurs.

Sali Hughes has FOGO — I went out four times last week. An unusually high engagement count, all unmissable and great fun, with people I love dearly. By Friday morning, I was spent, knackered, cross, reading Thai takeaway menus as porn and fantasising about my onesie and the latest Vanity Fair. Lesson learned.
