It's officially Kylie Jenner's birthday, so the world will stop revolving and time will alter to suit the billionaire make-up mogul.

The 21-year-old woke up to her house completely covered in red roses yesterday morning, courtesy of her boyfriend and baby daddy Travis Scott.

Jenner shared a video of the flowers on her Instagram, captioning it;

“My house is covered in ROSES! Travis Scott and it’s not even my birthday yet!!!!! Omg.”

Jenner shows herself walking through the sea of petals as her and Scott's daughter Stormi throws the roses into the air with excitement in the background.

28-year-old rapper Scott gave her a sweet card which read; “Happy Birthday!!!! We’re just getting started. Love you!!!!”

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star turns 22 on August 10, but she appears to be getting a whole birthday month?

Jenner also showed off her rose-filled house on her Instagram Stories, saying;

“This man covered my house in roses OMG!!!!!!!!” Jenner wrote over the video, with the song Wake Up playing from Travis' album Astroworld.

In November of last year, the Kylie Cosmetics founder arrived home to a plethora of bouquets all over her house.

Scott pulls out all the stops regularly for his girlfriend, especially on Mother's Day.

“Yesterday started with a 6am walk with this one,” the mum captioned a photo of Stormi.

“Then we started our day,” she continued, sharing a video of Stormi, sporting pigtails and a denim skirt, playing in a park.

Scott later surprised Jenner with a beachside dinner at Nobu in Malibu for the occasion.

“To a private dinner at my favourite place with my family,” she captioned a photo of Stormi staring out at the water. “Thank you Travis Scott for the best Mother’s Day.”

A source previously told People, Scott and Jenner are thinking about having a second baby soon, as well as getting married.

“Kylie is very happy with her life,” the source said. “She and Travis are discussing marriage.”

The pair have been dating since 2017 when they met at Coachella.

Science has upped it's game.

Most researchers seem to be pretty busy with conducting medical studies and making valuable scientific discoveries for society's gain, but this latest survey really takes it to the next level.

Bloom & Wild have worked with London Metropolitan University to undergo an experiment to figure out when the 'love hormone', AKA oxytocin, is released.

The anti-anxiety and stress reducing hormone is pretty special, the chemicals are made when you're in love, and having some KICK-ASS sex. We heart it. 

The study measured how the brain reacts to receiving certain gifts, and it's led to some pretty interesting, and useful, results. We're not hugely surprised at what topped the list, they're all unreal.

Research also suggests that people in the first three stages of love reported higher oxytocin levels that last for roughly six months to a year. At a chemical level, can presents recreate this high of lovestruck heartbeats?

Scientists reported that the subjects of the study showed an average increase of 73pg/ml in the hormone oxytocin after getting chocolates, and 62pg/ml after receiving flowers. Feeling loved comes in all shapes and sizes, it would seem.

The official top five items or experiences included on the list which trumped having sex were; chocolate winning the number one spot, then flowers, food, shopping and booking a holiday.

Receiving chocolate apparently creates a high increase in oxytocin the same rise in oxytocin comes from sex, so a quick nip down to Butlers could solve your stress issues. 

Flowers can spark the same feeling as love, relationships and sexy times, and a study by Havas Worldwide revealed that 57 percent of millennials think that food is better than sex. Damn.

Retail therapy also made the list, according to the experiment. The neurologist David Linden, in his book The Compass Of Pleasure, explains that the experience of shopping triggers dopamine circuitry in the brain's mesolimbic pathway.

In plain-old-English, the mesolimbic pathway is a key part of how we experience entertainment and happiness, so having a sneaky online shop at ASOS is good for you. Thank God we have a valid excuse to do this now…

Booking a holiday is better than having some intimate. alone time with a partner, according to research. 16% of Brits claim to support this, so those Aer Lingus January sales must have had people feelin' pretty damn euphoric.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@baligasm) on

To carry out their research, Bloom & Wild and London Metropolitan University split 30 volunteers into three groups.

Each were to receive a gift of flowers, chocolate, or water, and took saliva samples before the gift arrived, and then again 10 minutes after delivery, and finally 40 minutes after receiving the gift. 

It just goes to show, chocolate should always be cherished. We're in a loving relationship with Cadbury's Dairy Milk, and there are zero signs of a break-up coming our way.

Shane Long is currently in France getting ready for Ireland's next match on Saturday, but that doesn't mean he has no time to wish his wife a happy anniversary.

Despite being miles away from each other, Shane took to Twitter to share a few pictures from their special day.

He captioned the post: "3 years today since she said yes! Happy 3rd anniversary beaut! I've loved every minute."

Shane's wife, Kayleah, also took to social media to wish her hubby a happy day.

Taking to Instagram, she posted another photo of their wedding day and said: "3 year ago I married my best friend. Some would call me lucky, I would say I'm blessed and he's lucky. Shame we are not together today but I'm so proud of what he is doing, it's more than worth it!"

But, Shane's loving message on Twitter wasn't her only surprise:

 

Wow I must be doing something right 36 roses for each month and one rose for the girls each too some man we have

Having your backside completely covered in a tattoo can’t have been a bed of roses – or was it?

Cheryl Cole very reluctantly opened up about THAT famous bum tattoo, after being grilled by radio presenters Dave Berry and Lisa Snowden on their show this morning.

The singer first unveiled the huge tattoo of English roses – which took more than 15 hours to have done in Los Angeles last summer.

Dave asked the Say My Name singer outright,  “Your famous bum tattoo? That must have hurt right?”

Cheryl only replied, “Yes,” to which Dave asked, “It’s a very sensitive area?”

And the 30-year-old X Factor judge coyly answered him with an “okay.”

Dave also asked where it actually starts and finishes to which Cheryl said, “It starts at the middle of me back and who knows where it finishes.”

And when Lisa asked, “Is it all over each cheek?” Cheryl winked back to confirm it.

The singer, who has around 20 tattoos in total, went on the show to promote her new single Crazy, Stupid Love, and ended up getting a little flirty with Dave who asked her if she wanted to go on a date and told her she had ‘pretty eyes’.

A big fan of the bum tattoos are we then Dave?
