A lot has happened in Game of Thrones since we very first saw Ned Stark behead that Night’s Watch deserter.

chocolategirl1

Ah, Lent! The time of year you see people cry over bars of chocolate in the supermarket, wailing about how much they want a Wispa, caressing Crunchie packets and attempting to smell a Snickers through the plastic (OK, maybe not, but this is probably happening inside their heads as they resolutely walk past the chocolate aisle).

Things-that-made-us-go-WOW2

Firstly, it signals the ends of Dry January; secondly, it’s a whole 11 months until we have to battle through Dry January again, and finally, it’s the shortest month of the year, reminding us all that size doesn’t matter (right, lads?). So as we enter March, let’s take a look back …

Wowcher-Bae-or-Nae (2)

It’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday and love is in the air! From Tinseltown to foggy London Town couples are popping up left, right and centre, and we couldn’t be happier than when we see a blossoming new romance in the glitzy world of showbiz.
