5 Things To Do This Weekend... Watch Comic Relief, Listen To Hurts, SLEEP!
1. Watch... Comic Relief - Funny For Money
In case you've somehow dodged the plethora of pyjama clad, cake bearing, red nose donning volunteers armed with buckets trying to snaffle your lunch money today you might not have realised it's Red Nose Day. But don't worry, you can totally get involved in all the hilarious antics by tuning into BBC1 from 7pm this evening. Jessie J will be shaving her head, David Brent is back, One Direction will perform. It's too exciting. Also there will be loads of opportunities for you to donate to Comic Relief, an extremely worth cause which benefits those in need both in the UK and Africa. So, get ready for some major LOLs and to give generously.
Comic Relief - Funny For Money, 7pm, BBC1
2. Read... Never Google Heartbreak
Never Google Hearbreak is equal doses of cringe and LOLs as Viv tries to get back with, then get over her ex. It's painfully nostalgic for those of you who have ever been dumped but also the most reassuring thing you’ll ever read. Why? Well it turns out, even the coolest amongst us have at one time or other probably gone a bit ga-ga over a boy.
Never Google Heartbreak by Emma Garcia - out now
3. Watch... The Paperboy
Zac Efron barely clothed. Nicole Kidman in bonkers sexpot mode. Matthew McConaughey getting seriously kinky. All of this and more in steamy thriller The Paperboy, director Lee Daniels’ demented follow-up to Precious, with two newspapermen investigating a murder in 1969 Florida. Race you to the cinema!
The Paperboy, Out now
4. Listen to... Hurts
Hurts frontman Theo Hutchcraft holidays with the likes of Nick Grimshaw, Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, parties with Harry Styles, oh and has somehow found time to record the bands new album. If you liked their debut then you'll love Exile which takes everything up a notch with a bit more of everything.
Exile is out now
5. Get... A Good Night's Sleep
Friday 15th March is apparently World Sleep Day. We're not entirely sure what that means. Today we want to crawl into our cosy beds to hibernate just as much as at the end of any week. The Mental Health Foundation says that poor sleep is linked to a weakened immune system, anxiety, poor memory and depression – so shut eye is totally essentially to functioning as a normal human being. That being the case, it's often easier said than done. Debbie Haynes, co-owner of milkandhoney – a family-run company which sells affordably luxurious duvets, pillows and other bedding - recommends the following:
1. Duvet wars - don't fight with your partner over who has the covers. If one or other of you finds yourself with more or less during the night, invest in a duvet slightly bigger than your bed. So if you sleep in a double, opt for a kingsize.
2. Old, lumpy pillows will not provide the comfort or support you need. Invest in new ones. If they're stained or smell a bit, you know you've been holding on to them for too long.
3. Quality as well as quantity of sleep is just as important so if there is a noise keeping you awake, a light flickering in the distance or something else which disturbs your slumber, sort it out and pronto.
