Reading Time: 3 min

The internet, what a fantastic place… From the serious ‘Oh snap’ moments on #BlackTwitter, to the ridiculously well curated Instagram accounts of millennial ‘influencers’, we just love spending hours finding the best that the internet has to offer. We’ve rounded up the best of the internet for the month of July, that’ll definitely make you a hit at the watercooler this week.

The cholesterol-infused delirium of eating like Trump for a day

After reports by CNN, The Washington Post and the New York Times, we got some way real insights into what exactly the situation is on diet at the White House.

The famous Fight Club quote rings true in this regard, “…everything is a copy of a copy of a copy”, and although he was referring to the effects of insomnia, this is how some of these make us feel:

Rumor has it she ain’t got your love anymore

Fifteen-year-old me couldn’t imagine anything more amazing than being married to Brad Pitt. He seemed to be caring, loving – the perfect husband! Little did I know how well he takes after the one he loves… Someone on Twitter recently realised how much Pitt eventually takes after his ex-girlfriends and, of course, the internet quickly followed suit, dubbing Pitt the ‘Boyfriend Chameleon’.

Sleek & Silky

All white err’thing
