When it comes to marriage advice, we're pretty sceptical. It nearly always comes across as patronising, annoying, or just plain sexist. Men don't get the constant stream of wedding and baby pressure that women do.

There's no shortage of dating advice online and in magazines, even in books like He's Just Not That Into You.

It's time to turn to better sources for comfort, and ones from back in time. The Suffragette's seem like a good place to start… They fought for the right to vote and now we want the right NOT to devote.

Seeing as it's Valentine's Day, it would be rude of us not to share this HILARIOUS piece of advice from a "suffragette wife" which went viral, acccording to Stylist.

The advice was first penned in 1911, and it's still hella relevant today. Entitled 'Advice on Marriage to Young Ladies', the gal holds nothing back and takes zero prisoners.

The first tip? "Do not marry at all." She's starting us off with a big one, that's for sure.

Continuing, the woman writes about the types of men to avoid. Think modern day f*ckboys. She refers to them as, “the Beauty Men, Flirts, and the Bounders, Tailor’s Dummies, and the Football Enthusiasts”.

When it comes to decent marriage prospects, choose a "strong, tame man" who is involved in practical professions, such as a "Fire-lighter, Coal-getter, Window Cleaner and Yard Swiller”. We haven't a notion what a yard swiller is, but it sounds chic.

The suffragette also tells us that the standard of men is dastardly low; most are “lazy, selfish, thoughtless, lying, drunken, clumsy, heavy-footed, rough, unmanly brutes, and need taming”.

How do you tame a man back in 1911, and today? The answer is pretty obvious: food. "Feed the brute," in her words. LOL. 

Her final tip recalls her first; you'd "be wiser not to chance" marriage, because it "isn't worth the risk." The post was shared last year as well and also went viral, so it seems that modern day women can still relate to the tip sheet.

It's over 100 years old, but still resonates with today's audience. Interesting, does that mean men haven't progressed at all, or we're still stuck in 1911? We can't tell…

Ever wanted to swim in a sea of rainbow sprinkles? Fancy licking sweetie flavoured wallpaper á la Willy Wonka? Do you harbour a serious ice-cream obsession? 

Well, now you can indulge in all your candy-coloured fantasies – at the same time and in the same place.

A museum of ice cream has just opened in LA and tickets are already sold out for the next month. 

There are even giant gummy bears.

Friends, Maryellis Bunn and Manish Vora opened the exhibit, currently in downtown Los Angeles, which also includes a pool filled with 100 million sprinkles.

According to reports, it is three feet deep and can fit about a dozen people at a time, however we're not sure we'd fancy getting sprinkles stuck in our clothes. 

As well as giant lolly pop props and sprinkle pools, guests are also served everything from breakfast-themed ice-cream sandwiches and mint macarons.

Tickets can be bought online but are sold out until June. The friends plan to bring the exhibition to more cities. 

Check out the amazing world of ice-cream via Instagram…..drool.

If you're going to be in New York over the next couple of months and you're a Taylor Swift fan, then you're going to be delighted with this.

From November 18 until February, Swifties from all around the world can visit The Taylor Swift Experience.

The museum exhibit is curated of items hand-picked by Ms Swift herself.

It includes the  Moonman from the now-infamous Kanye West incident, napkins she wrote songs on in the old days, and the array of outfits from her 1989 World Tour.

The exhibit was originally in the Grammy Museum in LA, but due to high demand had to be moved to suit a bigger audience.

Billboard claims that The Taylor Swift Experience is the most popular exhibit since the museum opened!

We know Dolly Parton has Dollywood, a theme park dedicated to everything Dolly. And Taylor Swift, of course, has The Taylor Swift Education Centre, where you can learn literally everything there is to know about Tay Tay. 

But now, Mariah Carey wants to go one further and build a museum in tribute to her 25-year career. And that's not it. She wants to make it portable as well. 

An insider told Heat that Mariah thinks the world deserves a shrine of her work and many achievements. 

They were also told that it will display, "her concert outfits, platinum record collection, a recreation of her childhood home, award-show footage and vintage recordings playing on loop, baby photos, treasures from her home, displays of her jewellery collection and home movies of her children." Wow. 

The insider adds, "She has warehouses full of Mariah memorabilia, and I think she'd really throw herself into the project."

And who will be funding this portable museum, you ask? That would be Mariah's billionaire boyf, James Packer. 

"He can't say no to his girlfriend, even though he thinks this idea is way out there, even for Mariah.

"She thinks the whole thing would cost around $20m (€18m) to build a travelling museum, with the first stop being Las Vegas and her home town, New York."

If you've never owned a Juicy Couture tracksuit, then you definitely knew someone that did.

The high-end sweats with the 'J' zipper was the unofficial uniform of the early naughties – and bonus points if you wore them with Uggs. 

The styles came in every colour imaginable and there was even a terrycloth version for hot summer days. And for those of you who really digged the trend probably had the word 'JUICY' written across the bum (classy!). 

Yes, whether you were a Hollywood celeb or a secondary school student, these tracksuits were worn and loved across the globe. 

But as fashion took on new heights (thanks god), we said goodbye to the Juicy trackie. The outfit that once topped our Christmas lists and symbolised our cool-girl status now clutters the racks of TK Maxx, marked with a glaring SALE sticker. 

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London announced a new exhibition that will open in April 2016, named, Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear.

And sitting alongside glorious antique corsets, 18th century bloomers and the sheer naked dress worn by Kate Moss in 1993, is the 2004 version of the Juicy Couture tracksuit. In bubblegum pink, of course.

Our favourite thing to wear ten years ago is now an exhibition piece in a museum. Anybody else feeling old?!
