In other news, this week we paid tribute to Hubert De Givenchy, who passed away at the age of 91. Givenchy was iconic in many ways, he symbolised luxurious Parisian designs. His work with Audrey Hepburn was legendary. Givenchy was the mastermind behind her little black dress outfit in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. As well as an outstanding designer, Givenchy was also an influential figure in the art world. He had a remarkable  and long-lasting career and his work in fashion will never be forgotten. Check out our favourite pair of Givenchy sunnies:

An important advancement for glasses wearers everywhere was announced this week. As glasses wearers know, watching tv, reading, or playing on your phone can be very uncomfortable if you’re trying to lie down on the sofa or in bed. Your glasses dig in, or keep going lopsided so you can’t see properly. Well, now an online company have invented the “Laysee Pillow.” The pillow features a cushion that’s square on one side and split in two on the the other, and there’s a hollow tunnel running from one side to the other. You can lie down on the slit side and your glasses slot in neatly. No more pain from reading!
