Join the Pandaquest for your chance to win some super cute prizes


I have a confession to make – I LOVE pandas. I have panda bags, I have panda teddies, my Twitter name (@woshixiongmao) means ‘I am a panda” and I even made up a little song about pandas when I went to San Diego Zoo which I randomly hum in the house. With this passion for the monochrome cuddle monsters, it’s no surprise that I’m really excited about the Pambassador programme in association with the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding where some lucky people will get to work with the real life, endangered pandas in their hometown. It’s a great programme and a wonderful opportunity and I have a fun giveaway to get people involved. Continue reading

Hot or Not! It’s ladies night

It’s that time again, hot or not. This week, it’s all about the ladies. My fiancé and I often discuss these two women – I think one is beautiful and something people should aspire to, he does not, likewise, he thinks the other is one of the most attractive women in Hollywood and I think she’s odd looking. So help us, which is hotter… Emma Stone or Blake Lively? Continue reading

Hot or Not! The Ryan Gosling Effect

This week’s hot or not will be going old skool. I am calling upon you fine individuals to enlighten me. Ever since I was at uni with a very annoying girl who was obsessed with The Notebook and consequently this man, I’ve never understood the appeal. Ryan Gosling is deemed one of the most attractive men in the western world (within the public eye at least) but I don’t get it. I honestly want to know, what am I missing? I’m completely dumbfounded. Am I the only one? I mean I don’t think he’s hideous or hard on the eye, I just don’t understand why people are goofing gaga for him. Continue reading
