As Christmas is around the corner, it's safe to say the sale of Toblerones are going to sky rocket.

You're pretty much guaranteed to see one in a present, or at work or even in Santa's stocking on the fire place.

However, Santa may not be getting any of the chocolate goodness this year as the bar has changed its shape… and people aren't happy about it.

The BBC reported this morning that Toblerones in the UK have been altered and now sport a larger gap in between the peaks.

Toblerone released a statement in the UK in October: "Like many other companies, we are experiencing higher costs for numerous ingredients.

"We carry these costs for as long as possible, but to ensure Toblerone remains on-shelf, is affordable and retains the triangular shape, we have had to reduce the weight of just two of our bars in the UK, from the wider range of available Toblerone products."

So basically, the 400g bar is now 360g and the 170g bar is now 150g.

And here's what the people of Twitter had to say about it:

However, the new change has yet to be confirmed for Ireland… but we're guessing it's only a matter of time.



We all know that Cara Delevingne is the reigning eyebrow queen, but the truth is that her power arches is simply NOT one-size-fits-all. 

While it's obviously a natural look for the model, the bold and thick style doesn't work for all face shapes. 

The best way to achieve a great brow for your face shape is to play up to what we were born with; but that isn't so easy after years of shaping, tweezing and waxing – some of us don't even remember what our natural arches look like. 

Jog your memory

The easiest way to remember what your natural brow looks like is to look back on your pre-tweezing days. Find a picture of yourself from your early teens and that should give a good indication to what they looked like before. 


Grow, grow, grow

We're afraid it's time to join brow rehab ladies! That means NO hair removal whatsoever for at least eight weeks. By eight weeks you will begin to see your natural brow line again. Growth serums are great if you want to speed up the process.


Tint it

Tinting can be a game changer, even if you have naturally dark hair. Sometimes your brows might look quite sparse, but the hair is actually just lighter in some places. Tinting is a great natural way to enhance what hair you have, as well as richen and define your brows. 


Tweeze strays – conservatively 

When your eyebrows finally get back to their original state, don't go crazy plucking away the strays.

Eyebrow guru, William Scott, told Marie Claire,  "It's very helpful to fill in your ideal eyebrow shape with pencil or powder first. Be sure to extend ends all the way across the brow bone when filling in—the ends are most important. This will give you a more clear idea of what should be tweezed and what should be left alone."


Choose the right powder 

You've made it this far, so be sure to not sabotage your new know-how by selecting the wrong shade for your colouring. 

"Choose a shade that is the same as your eyebrow hair color, not the hair on your head, as sometimes it is a different shade. If you have red hair, use a warm blonde. If you're blonde, use a taupe or soft, ash brown. Brunettes should use a medium brown and grey or silver foxes should use an ash brown or taupe."


Set everything with gel

Think of it as the mascara of the eyebrow. Gel not only adds colour, but also thickness and fullness to the brow hair. The hold the gel offers is excellent also so be sure to brush the product into the brow correctly. 



Alessandra Ambrosio has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel for some time now and she knows what it takes to stay in shape.

The model appears on the cover of June’s Self magazine and looks absolutely incredible – but doesn’t keep how she does it a secret. Phew!

Alessandra did admit that prior to the birth of her daughter, Anja, she didn’t work out very much at all, but then that all changed.

“When I started Victoria’s Secret at 21, I never worked out … Then when I got pregnant with my daughter, I gained about 60 pounds and had to walk the Victoria’s Secret show three months later. That was the first time I really had to fight to get my body back into shape.”

The model even shared a few exercise tips: “I’ll do three sets of 25 Supermans … I don’t really do much for my arms: throwing my kids in the air helps already. Plus, as a Brazilian I know the last thing a man is going to look at – even after you feet – is your arms!”

Hmm, we’re not sure we’ll be putting down the dumbbells quite yet!




Many women would kill to have a figure like Lucy Mecklenburgh, even before she got into amazing shape.

The former TOWIE star has revealed that mean online comments on photos of her made her realise that she needed to change: “The photos weren’t awful but there was a saggy bum, cellulite and a few nasty comments underneath … I was like, ‘Actually, these people are right. I’m not doing anything. I’m not looking after my body. I’m lazy.”

Lucy changed her ways and got fit and set up Results with Lucy to inspire others to get in shape too.

The star also revealed that the plastic surgery culture today frightens her: “It is frightening to me just how common plastic surgery is. It’s almost like going to get your nails done. I find it quite upsetting, especially the quick weight-loss surgeries.”
