The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month... the moment hostilities ended in World War 1, and what we now know to be Armistice day, Remembrance day, or Poppy day. Whatever you call it, it's a significant day that every one of us should acknowledge.
Parents, friends, relatives and God Parents gather for a christening - which like a wedding and other religious rituals is associated not just with happiness, but also imbued with meaning. But are a happy life and a meaningful life the same thing? Can pursuing one lead to less of the other?
For elite alumni, the search for the perfect host or trusted tenant just got a little bit easier.
The sad truth is that, despite being 62, despite a decently successful journalistic career (including a prestigious award), despite a thriving website business, despite a husband who adores my every curve, my insecurities surface when it comes to "thin".
Until a month ago, I had no idea there were so many thousands of people who cared so deeply - so passionately - about circumcision.
Yep, Liam's done it again and made us all weak in the knees. The 1D member saved his friend's life from a ferocious fiyahh! Talk about smolder. HA, GE...
There's no denying that the rich and famous have got all sorts of things us regular folk would like. The money, flashy cars and big houses, to name a few, are obviously very appealing, but it seems we're also keen to get our hands on their perfectly formed features too.

Jenny Packham has dressed a lot of stylish and individual women like Angelina Jolie and Kate Middleton. As she prepares for New York Fashion Week, which starts on September 5, Packham takes a break to talk about modesty, burlesque dancing and love.

Over the weekend the Duchess of Cambridge was widely reported making her first public appearance since giving birth, but was there an unhealthy media obsession with the post-pregnancy body shape of Kate Middleton?
From the moment it was announced that Prince William's wife, Kate, was expecting their first child, and third-in-line-for-the-throne-heir, many moms and the media have struggled to find commonalities between her new baby experience, and everyone else's.
