Welcome to Friday (although who really keeps track of the days of the week during half term anyway?) We hope you’ve either had a relaxing week of holidays, hot chocolates and minimal homework… or a week of going ‘it’s half term next week!!!’ (then a hot chocolate and minimal homework).
Go on, kick your feet up and read about everything we’ve been doing, loving and reading this week.
Love Actually is actually returning
If your friends are anything like ours, you spent most of Wednesday evening sending the gif below from Love Actually to each other to celebrate the announcement that the Love Actually cast a reuniting for a short film for Red Nose Day. It will air on BBC One as part of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day fundraiser – so there’s only 35 days to go. Now, whenever we get gloomy about the state of the world, we’ll think about… um, the Love Actually revival.
Our gal Grace Victory
You may have noticed that our fave YouTube crush Grace Victory hosted the betty Galentine’s Day sleepover this week. It was a stupidly fun event, filled with face masks, pink dressing gowns and so. many. snacks. If you can’t get enough of Grace, check out this interview in Cosmo where she opens up about her mental health struggles. Grace in the face of adversity, much?
Our lips aren’t sealed
The Kylie Jenner pop-up shop in New York opened this week, and people went a little bit mental. Some Kylie superfans started queuing at midday THE DAY BEFORE. By the time the doors opened at 10:30am on Monday, it was snowing and the line snaked up and down the block and around a corner. But as any true Kylie Jenner fan knows, losing feeling in your toes is totally worth it if you can get your hand on her Valentine’s Day drop. Isn’t it? Sure it is.
Extreme onion cutting
There are a million old wives’ tales about how to stop yourself from crying while chopping onions (keep onions in the fridge, don’t chop the root of the onion, put a spoon in your mouth), but 19-year-old Dwi Intan came up with a genius tactic of her own this week: a motorbike helmet. First question: did it work? Amazingly she said it still didn’t completely solve the problem, but points for creativity.
Second question: what the hell recipe requires that many onions, and can we eat it please?

The Everything, Everything trailer is here!
The trailer for Everything, Everything has finally landed and it’s amazing. Based on Nicola Yoon’s book of the same name, Amandla Stenberg plays Madeline Whittier, a 17-year-old girl who’s never been outside because of a disease that would kill her if she left her strictly controlled house. But when Olly moves in next door… oh, we all know where this is going, right? Just watch the trailer.
