Selfridges Notches More Than 4 Million Pounds in Early Hours of Boxing Day Sale

LONDON — Footfall may have been down on Boxing Day, which marks the start of the winter sales in Britain, but for Selfridges, the pickings were rich.
The store, known for its bright yellow branding, said following a strong pre-Christmas trading period, it took in more than 4 million pounds in the first hours of the Boxing Day sale, which began Tuesday night online and Wednesday morning in-store.
Selfridges said it has already seen a 6 percent uplift on last year, and added that Boxing Day 2018 is on track to remain the retailer’s biggest trading day of the year. Selfridges doesn’t close until 9 p.m. local time, so final numbers are still unavailable.
The company said shoppers began arriving outside the Oxford Street store at 2:30 a.m. on Boxing Day, the day after Christmas, when estate owners and employers in Britain traditionally gave gifts to their employees. The store said it expected to see around 120,000 customers between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday.
Selfridges.com has seen the highest number of site visits to date, with 1.5 million customers visiting the site since Tuesday night, with “high double-digit growth” online compared with last year, it said.
So far the highest-performing departments have been women’s

We Played 2 Hours of Red Dead Redemption 2 – Here’s What Happened

As I trotted across the prairieland of New Hanover on my well-groomed steed, Mahogany Boy (named due to a tragic misread of his breed, the Mahogany Bay), I heard the dull rattle of a freight train. I yanked the reins, hit X a few times to shift gears into a gallop, and streaked toward the tracks, just as the steam locomotive rounded a corner into view. I had an idea.

As I took up a trajectory with the train, I heard a shout over the growing noise – bounty hunters sent to collect me, dead not alive. It was a fair cop: I’d recently threatened a passing wagoner, stolen his cart and rode it off a cliff to see what happens (you die). As the engine streaked past and I swung the camera to get a look at my pursuers, a button prompt appeared in the bottom-right corner of the screen: “Jump on train”.

Rihanna Runs on Less Than Four Hours of Sleep a Night

STAYING AWAKE: What does it take to become Rihanna? Less than four hours’ sleep per night, apparently.
The “Wild Thoughts” singer shares insights into her personal life and inspirations as guest editor of the December issue of Vogue Paris, scheduled to go on sale on Dec. 1. The issue comes with three separate covers shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Jean-Paul Goude and Juergen Teller.
A section titled “A Girl Like Me” opens with a candid shot of Rihanna divebombing into a pool in the Dominican Republic. In the accompanying caption, she reveals that she usually likes to spend her days off on tour sightseeing rather than sunbathing.
“I have a lot of trouble switching off. Even when I get home early, which means before 1 a.m., I start binge-watching shows or documentaries, which I love. I can’t go straight to bed. As a matter of fact, I only sleep three or four hours a night,” she is quoted as saying in the French text.

Someone Broke Into Amber Rose’s Home And Straight-Up Chilled For Hours

Amber Rose is the latest celebrity to fall victim to a home invasion. 

When the homes of the rich and famous are vandalized, the intruders typically grab the goods and go. But the man who broke into Rose’s Los Angeles home early Wednesday morning stayed put for hours while she slept soundly in a nearby room, according to TMZ, which was first to report the break-in.  

He reportedly gained entry between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. through her pantry by breaking a kitchen window. Rose, along with her mother, son, assistant, and bodyguards were all in the residence at the time, but somehow no one noticed that the man remained in the home for four hours. Her assistant reportedly even got up to make food while the intruder was in the house and didn’t suspect anything. 

It wasn’t until Rose noticed shattered glass in the kitchen area later that morning and checked her home surveillance footage that she discovered video evidence of a man breaking in and then leaving hours later. She then phoned the police who are now investigating the crime. 

Nobody was harmed in the home invasion and the suspect reportedly didn’t even make off with any of Rose’s possessions. 

Rose’s home invasion is part of a string of attacks on homes of celebrities including Emmy Rossum, Kendall Jenner and Jaime Pressly in recent months. Earlier that same day, armed robbers reportedly broke into rapper A$ AP Rocky’s Beverly Grove home, a mere 12 miles away from Rose’s residence, and made off with $ 1 million in cash and jewelry.

Those Good Vibes You Feel After Sex Can Last For 48 Hours, Study Finds

Research has proven that people are generally in a better mood after having sex ― you can thank a flood of endorphins and other feel-good hormones for that. But how long do those post-sex feelings last?

A new study suggests that the positive effects of getting laid last up to two days ― and those good vibes also help couples bond over time.

Lead researcher Andrea Meltzer and her team at Florida State University examined data from two independent longitudinal studies, one with 96 newlywed couples and another with 118 newlywed couples. All the couples had completed at least three consecutive days of a 14-day sex diary.

Each night before falling asleep, the partners were asked to report whether they had sex that day. They were also asked to jot down how satisfied they were with three things: their sex life, their partner and their relationship as a whole.

On average, the participants had sex four days out of the 14. Unsurprisingly, sex on any given day was linked with feelings of sexual and relationship satisfaction ― but what’s interesting is that the afterglow effect lasted up to 48 hours later. And those who sustained the afterglow for that amount of time also were happy with their relationships months down the road. 

“People with a stronger sexual afterglow ― that is, people who report a higher level of sexual satisfaction 48 hours after sex ― report higher levels of relationship satisfaction several months later.”
Andrea Meltzer

“People with a stronger sexual afterglow ― that is, people who report a higher level of sexual satisfaction 48 hours after sex ― report higher levels of relationship satisfaction several months later,” Meltzer said of the study, which was published this month in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.  

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Meltzer said what most surprised her most about the findings was how well the mental benefits of sex synced up with human biology.

“Forty-eight hours is roughly the same amount of time that (a) conception is maximized, (b) it takes sperm concentrations to be restored to peak levels, and (c) sperm remain maximally viable in the female reproductive tract,” she said. “It’s really interesting that lingering cognitive implications of sex ― sexual afterglow, for instance ― last for the same amount of time as the biological implications of sex.”

Meltzer said that newlyweds were singled out for the study because they engage in sex more frequently than long-term couples ― a requisite for the research.

“Our theory was based on reproduction,” Meltzer told HuffPost. “Given that newlyweds are often young and of reproductive age, they were an ideal sample in which to test our predictions.” 

In sum? Sex plays a major role in satisfaction and pair bonding, even if you’re not having sex every day of the week.
