    The female stereotype article is mostly dead-on, however, judging by the amount of tabloids that seem desperate to want Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds to be a couple in real life the opinion given on their age differences is probably in the minority.

    I’m so excited for the Toms ballet flats- I’ve never actually worn a pair of Toms before (I’ve just never seen a style I like, and I usually prefer to wear heels anyway), but I completely support what they do.

    Can’t wait!

    I was so excited when I started reading boots to fit your calves…

    Until I realised they aren’t for smaller calves! My calves are 28cm and I can never find any boots to fit. Every time I see a cute boot and try it on, they gape and flop around (usually making unattractive noises!) I have never in my life found a pair of boots that fit.

    The only place that has been recommended to me is Duo boots. And their boots are around £200/$400. Um, I’m not made of money lol

    Do any of you guys know where to buy boots that fit smaller calves?

    The rest of the links are great as always :)

    I like how the bra tips from experts, the victoria’s secret women just pushed their own brand, not actual tips.
