A good rolling pin is a must-have kitchen tool. A sturdy, well-designed rolling pin can last for decades and could even be passed down for generations. And a great one will also be of tremendous help to you right now. A quality rolling pin makes baking easier because it allows you to produce evenly and properly measured dough for pies and cookies. (There’s really nothing worse than taking what was intended to be a delicious, golden-brown baked good out of the oven and seeing it burned in parts and undercooked in others.) But because there are so many different options available to home bakers, it’s hard to know which rolling pin will best suit your needs. To help, we scoured the internet for all the best rolling pins, and we rounded up a list of the most highly-rated options according to hundreds and thousands of shopper reviews.

Mask Accessories Are Trending — & Here Are 19 Must-Try Styles

Ever since the pandemic took hold, a number of interesting fashion trends have come to light. There was the QuarantinePillowChallenge, which involved influencers swapping out mini dresses for pillows and accessorizing with Gucci and Chanel belts and bags. Next up: JacquemusAtHome, a strangely satisfying viral trend, coined by designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, that involved making bras out of croissants and heels out of tropical fruit and toilet rolls. Then there was the nightgown dress trend, as if we needed yet another excuse not to get dressed in the morning. But the latest fashion item to garner attention during the pandemic is not entirely surprising: mask accessories.  If you’ve spent time on Instagram lately, you’ve probably noticed an uptick in face masks that aren’t just protective and fashionable, but also feature additional accessories, from éliou’s glass-beaded chains reminiscent of

We could all do with a bit of escapism from reality at the minute, as lockdown continues in the UK.

Escape rooms are very popular with groups who love a challenge, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, all of them in the UK have closed their doors for the foreseeable.

Other games have become popular too while we spend more time at home. If you need some inspiration, we’ve rounded up the best apps that you can play games on with friends and family here.

As with physical escape rooms, the mission is as the name suggests – to escape the room – through a series of problem-solving missions and teamwork. Here are a few of our favourites.

From Cosmopolitan

This year has been a strange one, and it’s totally understandable if self isolation, furlough or other external factors have left you wanting to try new things. Maybe your job isn’t satisfying you anymore, or you’re finding yourself with way more time on your hands. Which could be where an online learning course could come in.

We are very much firm believers that you don’t have to commit this time to self improvement (hey, just existing right now is good too), but if you feel like you want something to fill some of your free time, or help you make your next job move, a short virtual learning course could be just the ticket.

3 families chose between online and in-person school. Now they’re questioning their decisions.

DETROIT — A few days before the start of the eighth grade, Jonah Beasley considered the risks he’d face when he walked back into the classroom and summed them up in stark terms.

He could get Covid-19 from a classmate or a teacher, he said, and “if I get it, I’ll probably die.”

A veteran of two heart transplants, Jonah, a soft-spoken teen who loves football and basketball, takes medicine that suppresses his immune system. He has a long list of health issues that his parents initially thought would force them to choose virtual instruction this year.

But Jonah’s lengthy hospital stays have already put him behind his peers academically and socially, said his mother, Peggy Carr-McMichael. He’s 15, two years older than most of his classmates. And Carr-McMichael saw how difficult it was for him to focus on his schoolwork and speak up during video classes last spring after

Post online misstates Sturgis Rally’s coronavirus cases

The claim: A post online attributes 88 positive tests to Sturgis Rally, 0.02% infection rate of attendees

Motorcyclists from around the country converged on Sturgis, South Dakota, for the town’s annual motorcycle rally in August — most unmasked and ignoring social distancing guidelines. Some on social media are claiming the event had little effect on the spread of COVID-19.

“Mass testing of Sturgis workers, residents result in no more positive results % than the rest of the state average,” a screenshot of a post reads. “Actually on the low end of the scale. All positive cases were asymptomatic.”

The post goes on to say the South Dakota Department of Health is allegedly attributing 88 positive tests to the rally, and that with 450,000 rally attendees, that’s a 0.02% infection rate.

The screenshot has been shared by Facebook group Bikers for Trump and multiple individuals. That group did not respond to

In a bid towards size inclusion, Lululemon has announced that six of its core styles will now be offered in extended sizes, ranging from size 0-20.

And as a creative you don’t want that. You want our guests to leave feeling confident. Give them something that really functions for them in their life
