The Jenner sisters are usually warmly welcomed by their loyal fans, but not in their most recent appearance. 

The sisters were visiting Westfield shoping centre in Sydney, Austraila, today to promote their clothing line for the brand Forever New

While doing so, TMZ reports that a woman standing in the crowd threw eggs at them. Yep, she tried to egg the Jenner sisters. 

She missed Kendall and Kylie (narrowly) and the local police had to step in to diffuse the situation. 

A source from the local police station in Sydney said that the unidentified woman was standing on the second floor of the shopping centre.

When she caught a glimpse of the reality stars, she began to throw the eggs and then added a few tomatoes into the mix (a few spinach leaves and dressing would have made the perfect salad). 

The woman missed her targets though, and the food ended up hitting the stage and splattered onto fans standing near-by. 

The rest of the event went off without a hitch, and Kendall and Kylie were able to launch their new line successfully.


It's no secret that you are what you eat — but did you know you might feel what you eat, too?

A September 2015 study published in BMC Medicine is just one of many to find a link between food and mental health.

After looking at the eating habits of more than 15,000 people for 10 years, researchers found that people who ate a lot of fruits, veggies, nuts and fish had a lower risk of depression. 


A major nutritional deficiency of people with depression is in omega-3 fats, which help decrease inflammation and improve mood regulation. Eating salmon will set you up perfectly to combat any mood swings.



Researchers found that their is a relationship between symptoms of depression and eating tomatoes and tomato-based products. The results show that participants who regularly consumed tomatoes had nearly half the odds of depression as those who didn't have a consistent tomato-fix. 



The biggest micronutrient deficiency in depression are the B vitamins, especially vitamin B-6, which regulates the metabolism and breakdown of all neurotransmitters. Chomping on chickpeas can change all that.


Whole Grains

Researchers from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition linked higher fibre intake with lower depression rates, while refined grains (white bread) were associated with higher rates of depression.


Nuts and Seeds

Nuts may be the perfect superfood, since they're a triple threat for depression: high in protein and amino acids, healthy fats like omega-3 and tryptophan, the brain-soothing chemical that builds serotonin levels, which make you happier. 


While the summer weather may have come and gone, there are some foods that are at their best during the summer months. Here are five foods that you should be eating this summer:

This fruit is not only 90% water but it’s also loaded with vitamin C. Plus, to make it even more perfect for those hot summer days, watermelon pieces can be frozen into fun healthy ice treats.

While some berries are not ripe until autumn, most supermarkets will start to stock delicious mixed berry packets in the coming months ahead. Berries are not only packed with antioxidants but can be great for your skin as well.

Not the most delicious snack but definitely the most refreshing. Cucumbers are great for your skin and like watermelons are a great source of water.

Smoked, poached or grilled salmon is not only a delicious summer dish, but a healthy one too. Thanks to omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is not only great for your skin but can also help with your skin cells in regulating their oil production.

Tomatoes are the essential ingredient for any summer salad, but also have great benefits to skin protection too. The lycopene in tomatoes not only promote collagen production but also help fight off any wrinkles.


Huevos Rancheros is a traditional Mexican breakfast and can be served alongside tortilla wraps, guacamole, refried beans and some hot jalapeños.

Although it seems like a lot of ingredients, the actual base recipe is very economical.

What you’ll need:

  • 400g tin of tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red or green chilli pepper
  • Handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 chorizo sausage, chopped roughly
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 eggs

What you’ll need to do:

  1. In a cast-iron frying pan (or one you can put under the grill), add some oil and when it is hot, add the finely chopped onion, chilli pepper and garlic.
  2. When they have softened, add the chorizo, smoked paprika and  roughly chopped peppers.
  3. When the chorizo cooks a little and begins to release its oil, add the tin of tomatoes.
  4. Add the sugar and season to taste.
  5. Cook for about 10mins over medium heat or until the chorizo is cooked. Add the torn spinach.
  6. Make two wells in the middle of the mixture and crack an egg in each.
  7. Place the pan under the grill until the egg has cooked to your liking.
  8. Enjoy!
