    Selfies can be good for your mental health, it turns out

    Selfies have been getting a bad rep recently, with people saying that they’re ‘vain’, trigger low self esteem and are something that only ‘self-obsessed’ millennials like to do. The group was then randomly split into three, with one third being asked to take a smiling selfie at this time, another to take a picture of an object of place that made them happy, and the final group told to take a picture of something that would make someone else happy before sending it to the person. In other words, taking happy selfies is far from damaging for our self esteems - in fact, it probably makes us happier.

    Sephora’s updated app includes interactive beauty tutorials

    There are a million and one beauty apps out there. But even we have to admit that this new feature from the Sephora app is pretty cool.  Unlike a lot of apps, which will have a video demo of the makeup artist applying a given technique to their own face, the virtual artist (found under the “inspire me” tab) actually uses the camera on your phone to draw out the instructions on your face in real time – so there’s no guessing. Step-by-step, it walks you through prep, application and finishing touches – and then (of course) offers a listing of suggested products for achieving the look.

    Tinderella tries something different: A blind date

    Remember dating before online dating? You know, meeting someone at work, school, through a friend or at a bar? I’d forgotten too until a girlfriend asked if she could set me up.  It was the perfect blind date situation: a friend of a friend. I needed a break from Tinder so I figured why not? Also, she assured me that she had done a ‘background check’ and that the setup was more about thinking we would actually click than the fact that we were both in our 30s and single.

    “We were surprised to see most people choosing to meet at coffee shops and casual restaurants for their first date,” Clover’s CEO Isaac Raichyk says in a press release. While users are free to name any location as a potential meeting place – including independent restaurants or coffee shops – it’s interesting to note that food and drink places came out on top and that the most popular choices were major franchises, likely due to them having multiple locations. A few exceptions included Waterloo, Ont.-based Beertown Public House and Toronto’s Pizzeria Libretto, 180 Panorama and Snakes & Lattes.
