Pippa Middleton’s extravagant wedding menu

From her star-studded guest list to her gorgeous dress, every minute of Pippa Middleton’s star-studded wedding to hedge fund CEO James Matthews will be detailed and directed for days to come. But let’s cut to the most important part. What was on the menu? The Telegraph reports that guests were invited to partake in a champagne reception with Ruinart Blanc de Blanc Champagne along with the bride and groom’s favorite foods including a cheese wheel, fruit cake and finger foods and vegetables for the children.

Elle also gave details of Pippa’s pre-wedding diet — something most of us have never heard of — The Sirtfood Diet. The strict diet includes 20 specific foods,…

Your shoes might stick to the floor when you walk in, and the bar might be covered in peanuts, but chances are none of that would stop you from grabbing a drink at your local dive bar. We expect that no matter how “divey” our favorite watering hole is, that the drinks, at least, are in the clear — right? Wrong. As reported by The Independent, a recent study conducted by independent accreditation organization Cask Marque, looked at 22,000 pubs throughout the U.K  and used 220,000 smart devices to determine the cleanliness of the beer lines — the route your beer takes from the basement to the glass. The study found the lines are often neglected, meaning that your beer flows through dirty pipes on its way to your glass — right before being served to you with a smile. Cider specifically was cited as the worst with 44% being pulled through dirty lines. Stout came in…
