Fleabag’s West End finale has officially sold out and we’re all inconsolable

Tickets for the stage finale of Fleabag are gone.

Fleabag

Words by Niamh McCollum

The West End reprisal of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s hit show Fleabag was announced just hours before tickets went on sale, with the show subsequently selling out within 60 minutes.

Waller-bridge debuted Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival back in 2013, and she has since become a household name following the finale of its second TV series.

Her one-woman play will run at Wyndham’s Theatre from 20 August to 14 September, for a total of 30 shows.

Although many fans are delighted to have secured tickets, the ticket-buying process was a trying time for everyone involved, and, of course, many of us were left empty handed.

If you’re still feeling a bit sorry for yourself today, then we come bearing the perfect cure: our favourite Twitter reactions to the Fleabag ticket-buying process/inevitable disappointment at the show selling out.

Nothing perks us up like finding a good gif or meme that accurately reflects our feelings of devastation at a situation that we have no control over – am I right?

So, without further ado, these are the seven stages of the Fleabag ticket-buying experience, as told by the eloquent users of Twitter:

  1. Sitting down at your laptop the moment tickets come on sale, feeling hopeful and savvy:

2. Getting onto the online ticket queue and nervously waiting for some sort of sign:

3. Trying to stay positive whilst riding the emotional rollercoaster that is the online ticket-queuing experience:

4. Doubting yourself as time goes on:

5. Being hit with this crushing reality:

6. Denial:

7. Acceptance:

If you’re still reeling from your inability to secure a Fleabag ticket, at least you can now take comfort in the fact that many of us feel the same. We would also like to send out a gentle reminder that because it’s a one-woman show, it will be sexy priest-less. Just saying.

Tesla officially unveils the Model Y

Model Y

After years of speculation, and months of teasing, Tesla late on Thursday night finally unveiled the Model Y. Though the build up to the Model Y reveal didn’t engender as much excitement as, say, the Model 3, Tesla’s newest crossover vehicle does bring a lot to the table.

Design wise, the Model Y is about what you would expect from a car built on the same platform as the Model 3. It’s noticeably bigger than the Model 3 and can seat seven people. As a point of interest, Tesla CEO Elon Musk a few weeks back said that the Model Y would be about 10% bigger than the Model 3.

Kathie Lee Gifford’s Replacement On ‘Today’ Finally Announced Officially!

Fans of Today have been looking forward to learning who Hoda Kotb’s new co-host would be following Kathie Lee Gifford’s exit. Earlier today, it was finally made official that Jenna Bush Hager will be taking over!

In just a few weeks, Kathie Lee will be leaving the show that she had been part of for no less than 11 years!

That being said, she and Hoda opened the episode today by officially announcing the person set to occupy Kathie Lee’s seat after her departure.

And sure enough, it turns out that Today regular Jenna Bush Hager is the lucky one to get the gig!

Referring to the fact that there were many rumors about Jenna being the replacement, Gifford joked that ‘It was the worst kept secret in show business!’

‘It feels humbling and I can’t believe it,’ Hager raved over her new job.

Jenna has been working on the network since 2009, and it is an honor for her to be a Today co-anchor.

Hager went on to reveal that her father, George W. Bush, was very happy to learn about his daughter’s new job.

‘My dad wrote me 3 words, which made me weep. He said, ‘Very proud dad,’ which I was like, ‘What are you proud of? I am just drinking wine in the morning,’ she joked.

She also told Gifford: ‘You’ve been such a role model and so generous with your time. You’re beloved here in many ways, and if I can use some of your grace and have half of what you have done, my life will be a very happy one.’

Kathie Lee reassured her replacement that she would do great, one reason for that being Hoda Kotb.

She explained that Hoda will always have her back and that they will have ‘a ball’ together.

The Killing Eve season 2 trailer has officially landed

And we need to see it. NOW.

REX

Killing Eve was undoubtedly one of the most talked-about TV shows of 2018, with the thriller series turning the already acclaimed Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer into household names.

But even though it feels like the first season has just left our screens, we’re already desperate for its second instalment – and we have A LOT of questions.

How did Villanelle escape after getting shot by Eve? Will the two women spark up a relationship in season two? And what couture looks will the high-fashion assassin be sporting next? (We’re still dreaming about that Molly Goddard pink dress from season one).

Thankfully, it looks like Villanelle is almost back, with the series creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge answering our prayers and dropping season two’s trailer just this week.

Spoiler alert – it looks incredible.

What can we expect? A lot of black comedy set in Rome and Paris.

Plus, according to the video clip, we can also expect Villanelle getting hit by a car, some comic book PJs, a terrifying kitchen knife scene, a pig mask and a chilling looking flower delivery.

Killing Eve’s second season comes to BBC America on Sunday 7 April, and while there’s no word yet as to when it will be aired in the UK, we’re sure it won’t be far behind.

Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi Will Officially Perform at Super Bowl LIII

After months of speculation, it’s now official: Maroon 5 will headline the Atlanta, Ga., Super Bowl LIII halftime show on Feb. 3, with rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi also performing.

The NFL’s announcement comes after months of reported controversy over a number of artists declining to perform. In light the national anthem debate, many performers have declined to play in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Other artists, including Jay-Z, reportedly tried to dissuade Scott from performing.

Though performers aren’t paid for Super Bowl halftime shows, Scott’s agreement to perform did come with a price. Reports say that the NFL will join the “Sicko Mode” rapper in donating $ 500,000 to the Dream Corps, an organization founded by Van Jones that seeks to support social justice groups with a focus on reforming the criminal justice system.

“I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in,” Scott said in a statement provided to media outlets. “I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation.”

The inclusion of Big Boi also adds an Atlanta native to the lineup. The rapper and producer was André 3000’s counterpart in their Grammy-award winning hip hop duo Outkast.

Many responded to the announcement on Twitter with dismay at the NFL’s choice, characterizing Maroon 5 as “boring.” Others said that Travis Scott or Big Boi should have been chosen to headline instead.

North West debuted new red lipstick from KKW Beauty, is officially cooler than all of us

North West debuted new red lipstick from KKW Beauty, is officially cooler than all of us

North West may be just 5 years old, but the tot could already teach a masterclass on the art of a red lip. Kim Kardashian took to social media on December 26th to share a family snapshot featuring husband Kanye West with their three children, North, Chicago, and Saint West. In the photo, simply captioned “Merry Christmas,” North is seen with a bold red lip.

Check out the family photo below.

After Twitter user Travis White responded to the photo with “North and that red lip is so iconic!,” Kardashian revealed that the red lip just might be part of a new beauty launch. The KKW Beauty mogul responded, “It just might be a new Classic Red Lip I have launch VERY soon.”

In the photo, North dons an all-black outfit with a red lip alongside her siblings and dad Kanye, while mom Kim dazzles in a white long-sleeve dress. Is anyone else getting FOMO that North gets to use IRL makeup while aging millennials were only allowed to use faux beauty kits from Claire’s in their youth?

The family photos come a few days after the official unveiling of the 2018 Kardashian-Jenner Christmas card. On Christmas Eve, Kim took to social media to share the annual card alongside sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, and the Kardashian-Jenner children. In the minimalist photo, the family dons all-white outfits. Notably absent are sister Kendall and matriarch Kris, who had to run to meetings during the shoot.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for a new KKW Beauty red lip product. But will the beauty product make us look as fierce as North West?

Cowboy boots are officially back so giddy up with our edit of the best

Anybody want to watch Toy Story again?

Grab the cowboy boots but leave the hat at home, Western style kicks are back with a vengeance this season. We spotted this autumn fashion trend everywhere at fashion shows and amongst the street style set, ranging from straight-out-of-Texas embroidered beauties to more minimal monochrome pieces. And luckily, loads of similar styles have just dropped in stores in time for the chilly weather.

Sported both on the runway and off, the likes of Calvin Klein, Fendi and Isabel Marant reinvented the classic silhouette with their AW18 shows earlier this year. Not everybody’s going to be super down for the traditional Western stitching and mid-calf lengths however, which is why we’ve noticed that ankle cowboy boots seem to be the way to go (and there’s certainly enough of them floating around at the moment).

We chatted with LIKEtoKNOW.it, a fashion discovery app, who’ve noticed that there’s been a huge spike in people saving and buying cowboy boots. There’s always going to be a time and place for a quintessential black cowboy boot, but we’ve got our eye on bolder styles this autumn.

Following the surge of summer interest in animal print pieces, the trend is still going strong with faux snakeskin, zebra and leopard print encouraging fashionistas to walk on the wild side this month.

Texture wise, you can never go wrong with a glossy or supple leather boot but Fendi’s faux croc kicks have definitely taken our interest. And when it comes to colours, we’re all about the white cowboy boot (who cares if it’s impractical?) and cherry red shades for those who really want to make a statement.

Here’s a selection of the most popular cowboy boots for women on LIKEtoKNOW.it and a few of our favourite picks below…

Cowboy Boots for Women

When our fashion editor Penny Goldstone walked in wearing these boots, I almost hit the floor. These gorgeous snake print booties from Find are everything and look way more expensive than they actually are. Lots of brands are doing their own take on faux snakeskin boots but I’ve gotta say, these are definitely the cream of the crop.

Luckily, these Stradivarius kicks aren’t too expensive and more importantly — they’re still in stock.

It’s impossible to get away from white ankle boots this season, especially since everybody fell madly in love with those pointed BALENCIAGA boots everybody was wearing at fashion week. We’re pretty keen on the white pair that blogger Sinead Crowe is wearing above from & other stories.

I spoke to her via LIKEtoKNOW.it about the trend and she told us, ‘I’m loving these boots because they’re a super wearable take on the cowboy trend. I’ve been eyeing up cowboy boots for a while but never dared to try them out as I felt it was quite out there for my style. These are the perfect everyday boots that give a nod to the trend without being too out there!’

California has officially outlawed all-male boards of directors, and this is a huge step forward

California has officially outlawed all-male boards of directors, and this is a huge step forward


California has officially outlawed all-male boards of directors, and this is a huge step forward

Women and men still aren’t equal in the workplace. And one of the ways this is most apparent is in the lack of women in the boardroom. In fact, gender disparity among business executives is so pronounced that there are almost as many CEOs named John as there are CEOs who are women, total. But the state of California just took a huge step toward gender equality by requiring businesses to put women on their boards of directors.

According to The Los Angeles Timeson September 30th, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a new law that will require all publicly traded businesses with headquarters in the state to have women on their boards of directors.

But the new law doesn’t require total gender parity. It stipulates that by the end of 2019, these companies must each have at least one woman on their boards. By the end of July 2021, boards with five or fewer members must have at least two women, while boards with six or more members must have at least three women represented. Businesses found to be violating this law will have to pay fines of $ 100,000 for a first offense and $ 300,000 for a second offense, the Times reports.

In a letter addressed to the California State Senate about signing the bill, published by the Times, Brown seemed to allude to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s recent decision to recommend Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, despite allegations of sexual assault against him.

“There have been numerous objections to this bill and serious legal concerns have been raised,” he wrote. “I don’t minmize the potential flaws that may prove fatal to its ultimate implementation. Nevertheless, recent events in Washington, D.C.—and beyond—make it crystal clear that many are not getting the message.”

Brown concluded his letter by writing that “it’s high time corporate boards include the people who constitute more than half the ‘persons’ in America.”

Time points out that 25% of public corporations headquartered in California have zero women on their boards of directors. But not everyone agrees with the new law. According to the magazine, the California Chamber of Commerce argued that the new law violates anti-discrimination rules in the Constitution.

Even though there will likely be some opposition, California’s new law still represents progress for women in the workforce.

We look forward to the day when men and women are equally represented in the boardroom.
