Look of the week

Holey holiday dresses

Vintage-style crochet and lace dresses are uber-cool in the heat. Throw over a swimsuit, or tank top and leggings, or do the Hipster thing by pairing with Converse or Oxfords.

Citrus shine

Bright and summery, add a splash of citrusy gorgeousness to your make-up bag with an orange lipgloss.


It takes guts and conviction, but pairing high-tops with a girly outfit is still a go-to look for fashionistas tired of their heels.

Green & chic

Yes, it's hot out, but that doesn't mean the only bearable activity is mall-surfing - and buying more stuff you don't need. Accept that you're going to, well, 'glow' and hit the beaches or the hiking trails for some practically free, eco-friendly summer days. Just remember to drink water, apply sunscreen, and take photos!

Celeb gossip

1D Observer

The boys are rumoured to be performing at the Olympics Closing Ceremony in London. It's almost as big news as HM the Queen parachuting in for the opening ceremony ...

Slumber party movie trio

Celebrate the underdog with these three movies inspired by real sports events.

Snack attack

Temperatures may be close to unbearable outside, but it's easy to cool off with a homemade popsicle. Use real fruit juice or smoothies, and even some fresh fruit to get part of your five-a-day into the mix.
