So, relationship experts have had their say, and according to them, there's FOUR different types of photos that you must have on your Tinder or dating profile in order to find a good match.

According to the Daily Mail, the four various snaps include: A glamorous one, so your match can imagine what you'd look like on a first date. Dreamy…

The second pic should be a casual photo, to show the lads that you're cool, casual and laid back (LOLZ, don't they realise we're all a tad psychotic?!).

The third is a "sun-kissed" photo, because the experts say that us gals apparently look the best in the sun. (Urm, they do realise it's Ireland we live in, right??)

And, the last but not least is a sporty photo to show that we're healthy and active and take care of ourselves. If you're not sporty (*cough*), good luck to ya.

They ask for a lot, don't they?! 

However, if you really want to find some love, we'd say be yourself, look and dress the way you want to and take the pictures you feel totally comfortable with.

You're great, and nobody can tell you otherwise.

Go get 'em, girls.

They totally brushed off cheating claims last week when cosy photos of Orlando Bloom and Selena Gomez surfaced online.

But now, new pictures have been snapped of Orlando and girlfriend Katy Perry – and they looked as loved up as ever.

During a lunch with friends in Cannes, it seems that Orlando just couldn't keep his hands (or lips) off Katy.

The actor cuddled Katy, and kissed her and played with her hair while they were chatting with their pals – a little OTT if you're in public.

Either, Orlando has a LOT to make up for and that's why he's all over Katy, or they're trying to put an image across.

Sources close to Orlando told TMZ that he was simply chatting to Selena last week and went to get food with her after, which explains why they left the club together.

What do you believe?

As most nightclub's take photos these days, it can be particularly scary seeing them go up on Facebook the next day. 

But this guy from England, saw a photo of him cheating on his girlfriend with his EX-girlfriend. Not a good move, lad. 

Upon seeing the candid shot, he wrote to the club, Levels, and asked them to take the photo down. But what we bet he didn't expect was their BRILLIANT response:

"Drop off 10 grand cash and a pack of Haribo Tangfastics at the club before 6pm otherwise I'm making it the profile pic for the clubs [sic] page," they said.

In the end, they did take the photo down, but it didn't stop them sharing it with all their fans on Twitter.

The internet is evidently a constant source of celebrity: bolstered by the likes of Instagram and Snapchat, we all now have a wealth of famous faces at our finger-tips.

But access to big names is a notoriously mixed bag.

Who would have thought, for example, that Rihanna and Beyonce are so happy to be photographed, while Blake Lively is somewhat more aloof?

That's not all that Big Apple-based paparazzo Miles Diggs, who runs 247Paps.TV with his business partner, Cesar Peña, revealed in conversation with the New York Post.

In fact, he laid bare the celebs that he and his ilk love to snap… and the ones they definitely don't…

 

The stars paps love:

1) Taylor Swift: “The smartest businesswoman in the business.” Her bodyguards arrange all the paps in a line outside her front door so everyone gets a clear shot when she enters and exits in immaculate outfits. “If you don’t get eye contact, your camera wasn’t working.”

2) Kim Kardashian: “She’s top of the food chain,” with even nonexclusive shots of Mrs West worth $300 to $1,000. Plus, she gets a majority cut of exclusive photos she sets up with photo agencies. “She’s trying to coach [half-sister] Kylie to give up photos more because the family needs somebody out there while she’s on maternity leave.”

3) Nicki Minaj: “When she’s feeling herself, she’s going to walk out and walk real slow, almost do a pose like a red carpet on the middle of the sidewalk.” Shots of Minaj wearing colored wigs and cartoon-style outfits are easier to sell.

4) Rihanna: A favorite. Friendly, always impeccably dressed and down to earth. She hangs out at restaurants and bars without security, and often into the wee hours. “She’s an eight-hour wait waiting to happen.”

5) Beyoncé: “She’s great if she wants to be shot and bad if she doesn’t.” Her bodyguard is known for having the longest arms around, perfect for blocking a shot Bey doesn’t want.

 

…And those they don’t:

1) Leonardo DiCaprio: “He hates being a celebrity.” He hides his face behind umbrellas or under beanies, berets, beards and sunglasses.

2) Scarlett Johansson: “She’s like a female Leo . . . She’s one of the best at spotting paparazzi. Her hand goes up, and she puts scarves in front of her.”

3) Alec Baldwin: The notoriously prickly actor has attacked and insulted paparazzi before, but Diggs and Peña say it always seems linked to an upcoming film, play or wedding. “Everything is timely with him. He’s a very calculating guy.”

4) Kristen Stewart: Used to bolt when cameras were near. “I’ve never seen a human being run as fast as Kristen Stewart.” But she wasn’t fast enough to escape the shot of her making out with married director Rupert Sanders, which ruined her relationship with Robert Pattinson (not to mention his marriage to Liberty Ross). She now has a publicist and is more willing to be photographed.

5) Blake Lively: “She pretends to be a sweetheart,” but Mrs Ryan Reynolds is notoriously hard to find, and if she knows a pap has snapped her, she’ll arrange her own photos and release them for free.

Instagram is fast becoming the favourite social network of them all, loved by us and celebrities alike.

Sometimes though, no matter how hard you try, you just can't get a good IG snap, and when it ends up getting no likes, it's quickly deleted. Sob.

But not anymore as Cosmopolitan have found these five brilliant hacks will get you ALL the IG hearts:

1. If you want to take a photo of a plated meal (like, at EVERY restaurant you go to), take the photo from above, with the phone at least 3 feet from the subject.

 

2. Another foodie hack when taking a photo! If the restaurant you're eating in is particularly dark, use your friend's phone flaslight to brighten the dish.

 

3. Add in blue tones wherever possible. A new study found that pictures with a blue tone get 24 percent more likes than red or green-toned photos.

 

4. If you want to focus on one specific object in a pic, use your actual phone camera and DON'T use Instagram's blur tool. Manually tap on what you want focused, then take your photo. 

 

5. When taking a photo, hold the camera perpendicular to the object. It looks clearer and more professional.

We all know what you see on Instagram often isn't real. 

Even Alexa Chung has openly confessed that her IG feed is full of creative crops. 

That's what one Thai photographer has set out to reveal exactly how people distort images to make their lives look more amazing. 

Chompoo Baritone named his series #SlowLife, which shows a typically impressive IG post, along with its surrounding reality. 

The amusing compositions show people enjoying a moment with friends, on a holiday or making a meal, along with the closely cropped, heavy filtered segment they'd most likely share on social media.

Taking to the current #fit trend, where we see people post photos of their impressive yoga skills; one of Chompoo's snaps shows a girl being assisted by her friend during the handstand. 

Another satire is the #foodporn craze, which sees a healthy homemade meal – beside not-so-healthy noodles and a microwave meal. 

“No one is as happy as they seem on Instagram,” said Alexa Chung to Stella magazine.

But then she added: “Instagram would be awful if it was reality, wouldn’t it? 'Here are my spaghetti hoops and me crying over EastEnders.'”

While he and Jimmy Fallon may have possibly taken the title for best dance performance at the U.S Open, it was Justin’s son Silas who has stolen the spotlight form his famous dad.

The 34-year old Justin and pal Jimmy were in the Emirates Suite watching Roger Federer take oon Richard Gasquet when Beyoncé’s mega-hit came on.

Obviously the only thing the pair could do was stand up and bust some moves. This is not the first time JT has shown his love of all things Bey. In 2009 he, Paul Rudd and Andy Samberg donned some black leotards for a performance on Saturday Night Live.

 

This time it seems to have brought some luck for Federer as he won his match in straight sets.

However, JT fans were feeling even luckier when he joined Jimmy as his guest for Jimmy’s talk show.

Before his appearance Jimmy tweeted some major spoilers about what was to come. He shared some adorable snaps of Justin and his five-month old son Silas.

One photo shows Silas with mom Jessica Biel, while in another his joins his proud papa Justin for a sweet photograph.

Also, check out that elephant towel. Probably the cutest outfit of the day. The photos are a rare glimpse of the couple’s first child. Since his birth in April they have kept their personal life away from the public.

If you're sick of sitting in front of Netflix every night after work or listlessly flicking through week-old magazines, then you may be in need of a hobby!

With the weather becoming more miserable by the second, we're not going to suggest you take up rollerblading or pole dancing, but why not give one of these five a go?

Yes, they're a bit nerdy, but so what? They're also fun and useful; everything you could want from a hobby you can do from the couch, right?

Knitting
It used be the reserve of our grandmothers, but knitting has taken on a whole new lease of life in recent years! You need look no further than Instagram accounts and Facebook posts to see how many people are proud to boast that the snood they’re rocking is handmade or that their niece is currently sporting the cutest cardigan known to man, all courtesy of their talented auntie or uncle.

Girls, there’s no greater feeling than being complimented on something YOU MADE YOURSELF!

Scrapbooking
Many girls are hoarders; we have boxes FULL of old photos, cards, and random scribblings from our school days stashed around our rooms, but how often do we sit down and go through them? How much easier would it be to stroll down memory lane if all your souvenirs and mementos were in scrapbooks?

Take your time with this hobby, going through years of memorabilia is a mammoth task, but let’s face it, your 2002 Westlife ticket deserves your time and attention!

Photo albums
Like scrapbooking, this deserves time and should be enjoyed! Remember before our lives went digital, we used to get our photos developed? Well, if you’re anything like us you have piles of photos in drawers around your room that need a proper home.

Treat yourself to some lovely albums and take the time to chronicle the photos that meant so much to you once upon a time! How much nicer is it to flip through an album than click on the next shot?

Crosswords
Again, normally the reserve of our parents or grandparents, but there’s a lot to be said for taking twenty minutes every day to challenge yourself. You don’t have to fish around the apartment for a newspaper, simply download a crossword app and get answering!

There’s no feeling quite like filling in that last white box and knowing that you, in no uncertain terms, are a GENIUS.

Decoupage
This is a seriously fun hobby which guarantees a lot of satisfaction. Yes, it sounds like a little bizarre, but all it involves is gluing images of your choice on an object and covering them in layers of glue until you’ve transformed a dull object into something you would proudly display around your place.

Grab an old shoe box, decide on a theme, entirely cover the box with these pictures, cover in layers of PVC glue and voila! Storage boxes that are as cute as anything you’d find in the shops!

Give it a go, ladies, you never know, you could discover knitting is one of your secret talents!

Kylie Jenner has had ENOUGH of people talking about her lips!

The KUWTK star’s lips have been something of a controversial topic on social media, with many people wondering if the look is down to clever make-up tricks or something a little more surgical

Kylie took to Twitter to blast the rumours and general discussion about her lips, writing: “how long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao … Let’s get our lives together guys and talk about some important sh** … Just talk about something new at least. I’m bored.”

The tweets come not long after the star shared two selfies with followers that lead to further chat about her changing appearance.

While there is no doubt Kylie’s look has changed, it’s clear she is happy with it and is done discussing it!
