    After writing about the Scrubba wash bag — a bag that claims to wash your clothes as well as a washing machine in as little as three minutes — and testing it during a Facebook live video, my editor suggested I take it home to use on my real dirty clothes.

  • Thinning hair? Nutritionists reveal how you can EAT your way to thick, shiny hair

  • Scotland needs £10billion reserve to start own currency says pro-independence think-tank

    GETTY The astonishing admission is yet another huge body-blow to Nicola Sturgeon's attempts to break away from the UK. If the country ever voted to become independent the Scottish Government would need to find the huge sum in order to hold in a foreign reserve fund, according to the study by pro-independence group, Common Weal. Researchers claim £10 billion would be a "significant sum" to raise but "not an insurmountable one", suggesting Scotland could acquire a share of the UK's foreign reserve as part of any separation agreement. However, critics have said the introduction of a separate currency would be "disastrous" for the Scottish economy and have even branded the suggestion "totally unrealistic". q

    I had all sorts of dreams as a child but none of them was realistic. When I was nine, Dad converted our box room into a bedroom so I no longer had to share with my brother. It was tiny, but I spent hours drawing up floor plans and convinced myself I’d become an interior designer.

I went to an international school where all the students were bilingual and no q
