2019= New Year, New….Food bingeing spree?

Many of us began the year on a health and fitness kick. I say 'us', I don't actually mean ourselves included. Most people are still couch potatoes and the passing of time won't do much to change that.

80 percent of people will have abandoned their New Year's resolutions by February, which is a pretty high statistic.

The only thing that could tempt us to change our deviant ways and embrace the health kick is…luxurious travel destinations. Luckily for you gals, we've discovered the best value deals for your health-focused trips.

Ever been creeping through Instagram and wondered where those travel bloggers get their unreal pool inflatables?

Pool floats are having a moment, with the kitsch and previously-pricey pool accessories dominating our social media feeds and now, our supermarket shelves.

Quality bargain supermarket Lidl is gearing up for summer with a set of foodie-friendly floats we'll be squeezing into our hand luggage. 

The floats are as affordable as they are Insta-friendly, and at €8.99, we may have to invest in more than one.

If you're feeling like something sweet, you can opt for the ice cream shaped float or the classic ring doughnut. 

If savoury snacks are more your scene, then this completely iconic pizza slice float is here to spice up your life.

On a health kick? Try the watermelon float for instant Instagram credentials. 

The perfect thing to pack a punch in the pool on holidays, we're extremely excited by this latest offering from Lidl.

Get booking those holidays, because the pool floats are hitting stores across the country on June 22.

So, an apartment complex in Houston is home to the ‘sky-pool’, and we can’t decide if it’s amazing or completely terrifying?

The glass-bottomed pool extends 10 feet beyond the side of building and sits 500 feet above street level.

Just take a look at this video.

According to the complex’s Facebook page, "You’ll swim amongst the sky and stars in this unique, one-of a kind, ‘floating’ phenomenon." 

 We have to admit, it looks pretty cool from the angle. 

 

Would you swim in an infinity pool like this? Freaky!!! #downtownhouston #marketsquare #infinitypool #skyrise

The gravity-defying pool has been dividing opinions on Twitter. 

So reckon you're brave enough to take a dip?

If not, don't worry, there's another pool on the fourth-floor.

Just two weeks on from going Insta official with Tyler Posey, Bella Thorne has posted a major PDA pic online.

Last night, the former Disney star celebrated Man Crush Monday by sharing a photo of herself straddling her new Teen Wolf boo as he lay contently on a flamingo shaped pool float.

Alongside the controversial post, the 19-year-old Shake It Up star reinforced ongoing speculation that she and Tyler are a couple by writing: “Pool vibes with my baby #myman #mcm #mancrusheveryday.”

Naturally Bella’s followers have been stunned by the move, with many suggesting that her relationship with Tyler went public too soon after her summer split with Gregg Sulkin.

Others expressed surprise at the racy nature of the shot itself.

As the chill is coming back in the air, and the nights are getting darker, we'd do anything for a little glimpse of sunshine here in Shemazing! HQ.

And we'd certainly like to be in Niall Horan and Eoghan McDermott's shoes right now.

If you don't know why, check out Niall's latest Insta:

 

this was a bad idea . Any guesses why ?

Jealous? Yep, us too.

The lads, who are part of the London Irish Crew (along with Bressie and Laura Whitmore), are soaking up the sunny rays in Hollywood at the moment and decided to have a little splash in the pool yesterday.

The Mullingar man captioned the photo: "This was a bad idea. Any guesses why?"

No doubt he's talking about how sore that splash was on his bare skin, but to be honest, we rather that than the freezing chill hitting us when we wake up in the morning.

Someday ladies… someday.

A young man aged 21 died in her pool over the weekend.

And while the exact details surrounding the tragedy remain unknown, Demi Moore and her family were not at their Beverly Hills home at the time.

Now, the 52-year-old actress has responded with a statement.

Daughter Tallulah Willis in the family pool recently

 

Issued to PEOPLE, it reads: “I am in absolute shock.

"I was out of the country travelling to meet my daughters for a birthday celebration when I got this devastating news.

"The loss of a child is an unthinkable tragedy and my heart goes out to this young man's family and friends," she continued. "I ask that you please respect the privacy of all concerned during this sensitive time." 

TMZ first broke the story, and the Los Angeles Times now says that police have identified the deceased as LA-native Edenilson Steven Valle.

Neighbours in the upmarket area also apparently told TMZ that pool-parties have been regularly hosted at the house by Ms Moore’s three children: Rumer, 26, Scout, 24, and Tallulah, 21, whose father is the actor Bruce Willis.

The younger two sisters are believed to be in New York at the moment, while Rumer has been taking part in the Strictly Come Dancing live tour, and was seen in LAX on Friday.

Posted on Instagram earlier this month, Tallulah shared a late-night snap showing a crowded swimming filled with guests and inflatable toys.

"This picture doesn't do justice to the glory that was our pool party last night," she wrote at the time.

The Los Angeles Police Department told PEOPLE that the dead man had attended a small gathering of just five or six, and that they do not suspect foul play. It is believed the soiree was held by Demi's assistant. 

It seems that drowning is the cause of death, though a post-mortem is being carried out shortly to confirm this.

Friends and family report that Mr Valle did not know how to swim. He was found floating in the deep end and emergency services suspect that he had been in the water about ten to 15 minutes. 

Firefighters were dispatched to the home at 5.17am on Sunday, but the young man was sadly pronounced dead on the scene.

Another day – another seriously head-turning Kylie Jenner bikini picture. 

Two days ago, the 17-year-old reality TV star posted her latest example: taken in Miami, it shows Ms Jenner in a beige-coloured two-piece with string detail on the front. 

And considering it's still only June – we reckon there'll be plenty more swimwear-inspired snaps to come from @KingKylie.

To get us all in the mood for the summer season, we've gathered up all 35 of her stunning Instagram swimsuit photographs… and long may she reign!

Style twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have opened their first retail store – and it has its own swimming pool!

The new boutique, for their fashion label The Row, opened in LA earlier this week.

The sisters have placed a leather basket of plush towels beside it for anyone who fancies a dip mid-shopping!

Even the newly-engaged Mary-Kate has thought about getting in on the action.

“It’s really tempting,” she said.

The store has been converted from a hair salon that the sisters had both went to since they were children.

It’s divided into three areas they have called ‘galleries’, which have been laid out to look like a home – with a dining room, library, and even a living room!

While The Row retails in 188 stores across 37 countries, the LA boutique is the first stand alone store for the label.

A range of the sisters’ favourite Manolo Blahnik styles are also for sale in the boutique.
