A Gossip Girl reboot could actually be happening according to CW

And the world is celebrating.

Instagram pods

It may have been six years since Gossip Girl left our screens, but it still feels like it was just yesterday.

And while the show’s end left a Blair and Chuck shaped hole in our hearts, it also left us with a lot of questions.

View this post on Instagram

Favs! 😩😍❤

A post shared by Gossip Girl © (@gossipgxoxo) on

Does Henry Bass have any siblings? How are Serena and Dan enjoying married life? Are Georgina and Jack Bass actually together now? And please tell us that William Van Der Woodsen has been discovered as the biggest villain ever – well, second biggest if we’re counting Bart Bass.

After unanswered calls for a reboot of the CW show, we had all given up hope, but today the news we have all been waiting for finally arrived.

Gossip Girl might well be coming back.

Yes, this is not a drill. We repeat. This is not a drill.

CW President Mark Pedowitz confirmed that there was a conversation about a GG reboot just this week, telling reporters at the TV Critics’ Association press tour: ‘There’s a discussion, but I don’t know if we’re there yet. I don’t know what it would be.

‘A lot is up to Warner Bros. and Josh and Steph, cause you don’t want to do anything without them,’ he continued, referencing Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the show’s executive producers.

Providing they say yes though, we could well see a GG reunion very soon.

BRB – off to the Met steps to discuss this over yogurt!

The Best day to book a flight according to research

ADVERTISEMENT


It was once thought that Tuesday was the best day to book a flight. However, it looks as though times are changing, and there could soon be a new day of the week that sees many of us heading off on vacation. So, which is the best day to book a flight? This is what the research says.

Breaking tradition

Tuesdays were once the global day that all plane tickets seemed to be cheaper, so what happened? Simply put: computers. No longer was it up to a manager typing in the prices on a computer. Now, it’s all down to algorithms and equations to help the airlines get as much money as possible. These computers will help to keep a watch over the market and automatically adjust the prices of the flights as they need to. In fact, some of the lowest fare charges can change over 70 times before the plane leaves the runway.

The best day

So if Tuesdays are out of the question, then which day is best for booking a flight? It seems as though we might have written the day off too soon. Hopper believes that midnight on a Tuesday is the cheapest time to book any domestic flight, while Thursdays offer up the best deals on international trips. However, Airlines Reporting Agency and Expedia agree that most flight tickets are at their lowest on a Sunday. While some have found certain days to be more worthwhile than others, CheapAir.com’s research showed that all days of the week usually offer up similar prices.

Timing is key

While the day might not be as important as it once was, it seems as though it’s all about timing when it comes to booking the cheapest flights possible. The best time? It’s thought to be around three and a half months before you want to jet off abroad. This is supposed to be when airline prices are at their lowest as they try and draw everyone in for an upcoming trip. However, research often shows that we might need to allow a little more time when planning a trip in the spring or summer as the prices of flights can often increase with the demand.

Plan ahead

The best piece of advice from many companies is to book your plane tickets as far in advance as possible. This is supposed to be a sure-fire way to get the best deals on your seats as the prices will usually start to increase in the final 30 days before the trip. After all, the airlines want to ensure they are getting every penny they can from the less organized or more sporadic traveler. If you wish to save even more money, then booking a flight that departs on a Tuesday or Wednesday is the final way to hold onto any extra pennies.

Heading on vacation can be an exciting time for many of us, but that doesn’t mean it has to cost a bomb, does it? Thankfully not. In fact, by planning when to book and the days to fly, we could soon see ourselves saving a ton of money. Sounds pretty perfect to us!

The most important items to take while traveling according to experts

ADVERTISEMENT


Going on a trip can be described in very few words. Packing, packing and more packing. And then there’s the part where you forget to pack up something important and your entire minutely planned trip becomes a headache-causing nightmare. No matter how much caution you take, how many times you remind yourself, there are those times you overlook something important. Something that’s at most times even obvious.

The easiest way to avoid finding yourself in this kind of situation is making a checklist of all the things you need to take with you when you travel. A checklist of everything, no matter how obvious and non-forgettable something seems. Only after you place an item in your traveling bags should you check it off. Here, we’re going to look at five of the most important items to take while you travel according to experts. With these 5 items with you, there isn’t something you can leave behind that has the power of ruining your trip.

1. Luggage

Well, yes, as obvious as this might seem, this happens to be the most important item to take with you because this is where all your other important items will be kept safely. As such, it should be secure. Then lightweight while still being spacious enough. Your luggage shouldn’t feel like extra baggage that tires you out. You’ll get enough fatigue from long flights and drives. Wheeled luggage is very convenient if you’re traveling to places with paved paths. Versatile ones that can be carried and also rolled are great if you’ll be venturing into some rough terrain areas. A carry-on is ideal for keeping all your important documents close to you.

2. Travel documents

These are probably the first things that should go into your travel bags before anything else. Vital documents while you travel include your passport/Visa, ID, boarding passes, airline tickets and insurance cards. There will be many places you’ll need to identify yourself, especially in a foreign country. Maps and guide books should also be kept with this lot.

3. Technology devices

Staying at reach and in contact is important, especially when you’re traveling away from home. Your mobile, tablets or laptop should come with you. Never leave your chargers behind. Take along your camera to record those moments on your trip, and headphones, preferably the noise-cancelling ones to get you through noisy commuting.

4. Cash and credit cards

You’ll need money to get plenty much anything you want to get done on your trip, so keeping enough cash on you and carrying your credit cards is important. Make sure to keep it in a safe place, and notify your bank if you’re traveling abroad and will be using your credit card. Also, familiarize yourself with the currency rates of the country you’ll be visiting to avoid carrying too little cash.

5. Precautionary items

You can never be too cautious, and that’s why you should travel ready for anything. Personal prescriptions, fever and pain relievers along with a full first-aid kit are things you should take with you in case of any medical emergencies. Others include allergy medicines, multivitamins, antibacterial ointments, sunscreen and insect repellants. If you have a history of succumbing to motion sickness, take along pills. With all these in place, you’ll prevent the possibility of having your trip cut short by unexpected ailments or extreme reactions to new environments.

These are the biggest takeaway trends of 2019 according to Deliveroo

Anybody for a cup of fermented tea?

2019 food trends

Although we’re always partial to a KFC or sneaky Domino’s, ever since Deliveroo launched in the UK they’ve basically proved it’s possible to get a restaurant-quality takeaway and changed the game. (And our poor bank accounts.) This year, we’ve tried basically every Vietnamese restaurant with ordering distance and hunkered down with some Mexican cuisine in our pyjamas but according to Deliveroo, we could be singing a very different tune next year. The delivery platform revealed what the top five food trends of 2019 to Her.ie are going to be and well, it’s good news for vegetarians.

They’ve anticipated that next year, people are going to take a major interest in ‘healthy frozen savouries’ so you could find yourself picking up some avocado ice cream at the supermarket. They claimed that 2019 heralds ‘the international adoption of savoury and healthy ice creams’ and ‘vegan and veggie variations of ice cream are certainly expected’.

Biltong and crisps are going to take more of a backseat in 2019 as one kind of divisive form of cuisine is on the rise, as they believe ‘sea snacks’ are going to become popular. In fact, there’s already been a big jump in interest as Deliveroo said, ‘With an already abundant and rich marine life, Deliveroo has already seen an increase of 59 percent in seafood orders across the platform.’

Even if you know some ride or die meat eaters, Deliveroo’s also predicted that there’s a new eating trend that’s going to change things: something called ‘flexitarianism’. They explained, ‘We have witnessed veganism explode in Ireland, with Deliveroo restaurant partners increasing their vegan-friendly options by a staggering 100 percent and a 73 percnet increase of vegan orders on the platform in 2018.’

“As the lifestyle gathers more speed in the new year, Deliveroo predicts an increase in Flexitarianism,’ they continued, ‘where customers will dip in and out of meat dishes in favour of #MeatlessMonday and #GreenSunday.’

As the world grows more eco-conscious, so will the food trade next year. Deliveroo’s predicted that their merchants are going to ‘introduce innovative ways to reduce daily waste, by using the likes of root vegetable leaves to make tasty and flavoursome pestos to accompany dishes’.

And finally, the boom of fermented food and drink over in California is apparently going to make a splash in the UK. Deliveroo particularly honed in on kombucha, a fermented tea, saying, ‘Hailed as a miracle drink, it packs a probiotic punch for gut health. Seeing as Ireland’s unofficial national drink is tea, this fermented version is sure to be a key 2019 healthy hit.’

So, what do you think? We personally aren’t super into the idea of swapping out a cheesy pasta for mouldy tea TBH, but to each their own.

This is what a sunrise on Mars sounds like, according to a computer algorithm

mars sunrise

Scientists know a lot about Mars, at least when it comes to what it looks like. Sound, on the other hand, is a lot more challenging, and it’s not like we have high-powered microphones listening to the wind sweep across the Martian plains.

Now, researchers from Anglia Ruskin University and the University of Exeter have created an interesting piece of music that wasn’t just inspired by Mars, but was actually composed by a computer algorithm using a Mars sunrise as data. The result is a surprisingly pleasing piece of music, and you can listen to it yourself.

According To Science, If You Eat This Before Bed, You Can Lose Weight

via MadameNoire.com:

Winter is coming. As the temperature cools outside, we tend to cuddle up in our blankets, sitting in front of the TV, snacking.

Research at Johns Hopkins University found that on average, people can pack on five to seven pounds during colder months. Some of the reasons for the extra weight gain can be attributed to sleeping too much, the heavy calorie count that comes with holiday meals, and the lure of warm comfort foods (pasta!).

But there may be hope for some of us who are looking to lose some weight without much effort. According to a new study published by the British Journal of Nutrition, if you consume cottage cheese before bed, you can lose weight.

Say what?

Yes, if you are a cheesehead, this may be the diet hack for you. Research showed that eating low-calorie foods helps to boost your metabolism and helps to support muscle strength and your overall health, Women’s Health reports.

Even though we are mostly cautioned against eating before bedtime, apparently the “no food after 9” rule doesn’t apply to food that is rich in protein.

If you snack on two tablespoons of cottage cheese just a half an hour before hitting the Z’s, it could help improve your waistline.

“Until now, we presumed whole foods would act similarly to the data on supplemental protein, but we had no real evidence,” says Professor Michael Ormsbee, from Florida State University.

“This is important because it adds to the body of literature that indicates whole foods work just as well as protein supplementation, and it gives people options for pre-sleep nutrition that go beyond powders and shaker bottles.”

Of course, any of these tips need to be incorporated into an overall healthy diet and exercise routine. But if a couple spoonfuls of cheese could help us in our weight loss goals, bring it on!
