Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Trends on Thursday 28 August 2014

I’m not ashamed to say I have a couple of locks of hair stored away from when I was a baby. And Richard Gibson sure isn’t ashamed to say that he, too, collects parts of… himself. But in this case, it’s nail clippings. Every single one, clipped since 1978. This 58-year-old oil investor started filling […]

By Milo Sumner in New Trends on Thursday 28 August 2014

So everybody is probably familiar with the current trend of ‘paying-it-forward’ in coffee shops. Essentially it’s a self-propelling chain of charity in which each person in the queue pays for the drink of the person behind them.
