I’m going say she DOESN’T look like a hot mess at the Billboard Awards in this amazing crochet jumpsuit.

I like it. #teenstarturnedgood

Jordan to venture into the world of craft? Holy shit.

According to Heat, she spent her 35th birthday sewing pinnies.

Donna Air, the Middletons and the case of the missing knitting.

“Donna Air, who has been linked to James Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger brother, always told Mandrake that she wasn’t ready for knitting and slippers,” says the Telegraph.

Oh Donna. Don’t you know you can shag the hell out of a Middleton and STILL dabble in a bit of knit one, purl one?

Book #2 of the week.

John Paul Flintoff (yep, that guy who wrote Sew Your Own) has a book book out. It’s part of a School of Life series, and it’s about how to change the world.

I assume you want to change the world? Yes? Good.
