Fierce and Finished
Life&Style writer Delfina Rainoldi on what's fierce and finished this week...
For a while now we have been seeing vegetarianism and veganism becoming more accepted in society. A range of vegetarian/vegan options have now been added to restaurant menus and many vegan restaurants are no longer seen as taboo places to non-vegans.

Having always been a glitter fan, it is great to see it come into the limelight as something so cool, funky and fun. Designers are using it on their catwalk make-up and girls are using it on their nights out to add a bit of groovy-ness to their look through trends such as glitter tears and glitter freckles.
