In a day which is just SATURATED with Kardashian gossip (cheers, Tristan, you're a melt)…let's not forget that Kourtney Kardashian had an awkward encounter with ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima.

The pair split six months ago after dating for two years, following pictures surfacing showing the young model getting cosy with another girl on holidays. 

E! News reports that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who called it quits with her former beau last August, was seen standing alongside her ex at Alfred Tea Room in Los Angeles.

Her fans may have gotten excited imaging a romantic reunion between the pair,  E! News are saying that this was a chance encounter rather than a planned meeting.

"Kourtney bumped into Younes getting coffee at Alfred. It wasn't a planned meet up," an insider source told the publication. "She goes there often and so does he. She was happy to see him and very nice. It wasn't awkward for her and they chatted for a few minutes."

Younes bought Kourtney a latte, which seems nice until you remember he got cosy with another woman…

"It was sweet and she appreciated it. She gave him a hug and went on her way," the source claiemd. "He texts her from time to time but she has moved on. It was nice to see him and she was glad to see he's doing well."

The former couple ended their romance when Kourtney learned of him getting cosy in Mexico with another girl, but last December, Younes posted a tribute to his famous ex on Instagram.

"Let's not forget this beautiful woman inside and out," Younes wrote alongside pictures of Kourtney. "I'm not the type of man that forgets moments like that. You are an amazing woman and mum and I hope you will find happiness for you and your children."

"It's all love at the end of the day…we don't know what can happen tomorrow so there you go," he finished.

Apparently, the same source said; "Kourtney heard he had posted, but she has moved on from that time in her life. She doesn't trust Younes and his intentions. It felt like he was looking for attention and to be relevant again."

"She didn't think much of it. She's focused on other people and other things." Kourtney hasn't been in contact with Younes since the photos, and has gotten on with her life without him.

"She knows he is still hurting and misses her, but she isn't focused on him." Damn right girl, you don't need no man.

2018 brought us plenty of trends that we want to leave in the past, but Danish cosiness concept hygge is going from strength to strength. 

We're sure that by now you have stumbled across the trending term and wondered, firstly, how the hell you pronounce it. 

It's "hoo-ga," but the pronunciation is pretty much the only complicated consideration from this trend.

Hygge describes the distinctly Danish feeling of cosiness and contentment, which involves setting up your living space in a way that promotes comfort, and taking the time to do things like soak in a candle-lit bubble bath and lounge around on Scandi-style blankets with purring, sleepy cats. 

Oxford Dictionary short-listed the term for its word of the year, so it's definitely popular. 

A quick search for the term on Instagram throws up over 1 million images of thick, knitted socks and tables strewn with books and scented candles. 

The national obsession with all things comfy is credited as one of the reasons why Denmark is always at the top of the list of the world's happiest countries.

Instead of wallowing in misery during the infamously violent winters, the Danes have embraced their indoor time by creating snug, fairy-lit spaces away from the cold.

The movement even promotes the wearing of comfortable pyjama-esque clothes that you would never wear outside.

Thermal leggings, UGGs and knitted jumpers are the outfit of choice.

Hyggebukser is even the hygge term for leggings, as if we needed another excuse to constantly wear them.

Countless books have been written on the subject, showing the non-natives how to perfect the art. 

So, next time you feel guilty for watching Love Actually under a throw blanket with a mug of hot chocolate all day, just remember you're partaking in this year's hottest trend. 



While we're certainly not the sorts to go into a wild tizzy every time a married celebrity speaks to a member of the opposite sex, we have to say recent pictures of Michelle Keegan have raised eyebrows. 

Indeed, the 29-year-old actress, who was been married to Mark Wright for a little more than a year, has now sent the rumour-mill into overdrive.

In the recent snaps, Michelle can be seen walking arm-in-arm with her attractive 26-year-old co-star, Luca Pasqualino.

They snuggle into one another, appear to share intimate conversation and walk around like no one is watching as he drapes an arm over her shoulder.

The cosy snaps come after Michelle admitted to LOOK that she finds it hard to find a perfect balance in her life, and that her hubby Mark critiques her wardrobe choices when they're going out.

"Mark gives his opinion. He'll point something out that I haven't seen before and be like, "That doesn't go.'"

The actress also admitted to the mag that she doesn't see her husband as much as she's like to.

"It's hard to juggle friends, work and a husband.

"I have to plan. Mark's always looking at his diary and I'm at mine and my friends are all in a group message trying to arrange their time," she said.

Michelle has just wrapped on the set of Our Girl, so hopefully we'll see more date night snaps of the lovable pair together.



Say it isn’t so!

Split rumours are rife as Ryan Gosling got very cosy with his stunning co-star at Cannes, while girlfriend Eva Mendes stayed at home.

Ryan was at the Cannes Film Festival promoting his directorial début, Lost River and was spotted getting close with the movie’s leading lady, Christina Hendricks.

Ryan and Christina are said to have had amazing chemistry onset and are reportedly spending a LOT of time together since the movie wrapped.

The pair got very friendly when they starred together in Drive a couple of years ago, but have reportedly gotten even closer since.

Things are said to have gotten pretty tense at Cannes as Christina’s hubby Geoffrey Arend – who was at the festival- was seen frantically trying to keep the pair apart when they weren’t on the red carpet.

He has his work cut out for him there!




1. Warm colours
If your walls and furniture portray a warmth, you’ll notice an instant change. Oranges, reds, greens and browns are much cosier colours than whites or pastels.

2. Mixed fabrics
Mix your fabrics and patterns to add a sense of cosiness to your living room. Mismatched pillows and blankets will make the room instantly snug.

3. Plants, herbs and flowers
The addition of some nature into your home will not only purify the air but it is aesthetically pleasing.

4. Wood
The addition of wooden furniture, panels or floors to your home will make it feel warm. Think about the portrayal of cosiness you get when you think of the inside of a ski chalet. Bring that to your home!

5. Candles and scent
Candles give a home a dim, romantic light and calmness. Smell is also a very powerful way to give your home a cosy feeling, it’s as simple as putting some orange peel into a saucepan – click here to learn how!

6. Embrace your clutter
Cosy homes are ones that embrace book collections, duck figurine collections and all types of memorabilia. Cosy homes are not minimalist.
