Guys, spring is not springing. It just isn’t. In fact it’s actually meant to snow in some places this weekend, which, while exciting, is distinctly un-springlike. So we’ll park the denim jacket and… I guess put our thermals back on? Again.
On the plus side, here’s everything we’ve been reading, watching and loving this week! Chin up.
Twins are in the air
It seems that this year’s must have accessory for celebrity couples are matching tatt– oh no, whoops, twins. It’s twins. George and Amal Clooney have announced that they are expecting twins, but unlike when Queen Bey made her announcement, there was no luscious photoshoot in sight, instead they shared their news with the world via an American show called ‘The Talk.’ Congrats x 2.
Why Hiddleswift tanked
It might seem like a million years ago since you last heard the term ‘Hiddleswift’ but the duo is back in the headlines this week after Tom Hiddleston’s interview with GQ. In what’s got to be one of the most bizarre interviews of all time, Hiddleston explains how he came to be wearing the now iconic “I ❤️️ T. S.” tank top at Tay Tay’s 4th of July party.
He insists it was a joke, explaining: “I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ’Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ’I’ve got this.’ ” Somehow, after reading this interview, we have even more questions than we did at the start. Soz Tom.

Selena Gomez adds ‘producer’ to her CV
In addition to being a singer, songwriter and an actress, Selena Gomez is now trying her hand at producing. The quadruple(?) threat has signed up to work on Netflix’s new series, 13 Reasons Why, based on a YA novel by the same name written by Jay Asher. It’s a pretty harrowing story that deals with mental health, but that’s exactly why Selena got involved.
Speaking at a Netflix press panel, she said she could relate to the story; “I had no idea what I was gonna be or who I was going to become,” she says of her own high school experience. “It definitely hits home; that’s why I wanted to be a part of this project in any way.” She then added, “I would do anything to be a good influence on this generation,” which is giving us all the feels.
Epic snowball fight at a Canadian University
The forecast is predicting snow this weekend, and while it may not be the balmy spring dreamscape we’d optimistically hoped for, we’ll take it. Boy, we’ll take it. Maybe we’ll even be able to pull off a thousand people-strong snowball fight like students at the University of British Columbia did! Not that we’re getting our hopes up or anything.

Richard Vs Barack
There was a time when he hadn’t seen pictures of Barack Obama kite surfing. And let’s just all agree, it was… ok maybe not a worse time, but a simpler time. On the list of things we can thank Richard Branson for (like cheap flights and internet that only cuts out every so often), we can add this video. You go, Prez.
Get your skates on
We’re desperate to take up rollerskating. We’ve booked lessons and we’ve bought these increds roller skates so come join the party too!
And also, it’s given us all a great excuse to re-watch ‘Whip It’ which we’re convinced has to be one of the greatest sporting movies of all time.
Valentine’s Day nailed (ok, stapled)
If you want to do some Valentine’s Day craft that you can keep in your room all year round, why not try out rainbow heart garland tutorial? It’s super easy to make and looks AH-MAZING.
Wrap up warm this weekend – and please, if you get the chance, have a snowball fight!
