It's the middle of the year which means two things; your social media feed is about to be taken over with shots of friends on holidays, and to rub salt into the wound, it's time for your yearly performance review. Don't worry, we got you. Jessie has a solution for the non-holiday blues, and if you're sniffing around for a pay rise we speak to Shark Tank's Janine Allis about what bosses really want to hear.
Plus, mothers who regret becoming mothers. The unspoken reality for some women has this week bubbled to the surface. Is it a necessary conversation, or should it remain unsaid? The 16 year old who will remind you of that time when you felt invincible. And dogs in public. Dogs in shops, in hairdressers, in cafes, at the gym, and in the workplace. When did dogs become equal to humans in public spaces?
