Our sweat has dripped onto the keyboard.
It’s too hot. Nothing can get done. All creativity has melted away through the pores in our skin. The Buffer-winning ideas are evaporating off us at this very moment. This intro is a time capsule to look back at in the deep depths of January 2019 when we’ll think, “Remember when sweat was our only worry and we had all our toes.” This is before The Great Freeze takes our toes and then our fingers. We’ll still have our spirits though.
The heat has got to all of us. We’re all going doolally, collectively daydreaming that a reality TV star was the leader of the free world. Madness. Absolute madness.
Here’s a nice, ice cold Round-Up for everyone!
Melanie Baker – Super 8 // Wayfarer Sessions | Ray Roberts

This is a video that not only looks beautiful, but also sounds beautiful. In fact it’s just all round beautiful, and we can’t wait to see who Ray features in the series next!
DRESSING FOR A PEAR SHAPE | Helen Anderson
Different body shapes require different things to make them look good. There is so many different shapes that it can be hard to work out which you fall under. Are you an apple? What about a blueberry? A rhomboid? We think we’re just making things up at this point… Fashion has always mildly confused us.
Well, it appears Helen Anderson has cracked the code and has worked out she is a pear shape. This video is her telling all you fellow pears what to do to make the most of what you’ve got. Not only is it super informative, but it also features some pretty stylish clothing suggestions.

This past weekend was London Pride and with that brings a lot of happiness and celebration of people’s true selves. Disgusting protests aside, it seemed like a great day for all involved. Emi Salida is someone who identifies as asexual. In the last few months, there has been an increase in the discourse around whether asexuals should be allowed to be a part of pride celebrations. This video is Emi’s viewpoint on the subject.
We’ve all got plenty of summer functions to attend and finding an outfit for each is a ballache. Lucy Wood is here with a Get Ready With Me that shows off some great makeup skills and a wonderful taste in summer dresses. Lucy is very smart. We know this because she has a fan blowing directly on her throughout the entire video. We like to watch smart people – you will too!
It seems on an almost weekly basis that we get ads for a new super cheap shopping website or app. One that has put a lot of money into those ads is Wish. Jen Dre ordered a whole bunch of wedding dresses from the company, which were incredibly cheap. Do you think they’re any good? Watch the video and find out.
Matt Amys‘ driving series has all sorts of different guests taking the hot seat. This time around Brands Hatch it’s dodie herself. It’s one lap in a Mini and then a second using some of the best drunk goggles in the world in the very same Mini. We should stress it’s all in a driving simulator. Drive safe kids!
