Couple to wed in SPAM museum

A man who changed his middle name to 'I Love SPAM' is getting married in a SPAM museum.

Mark Benson who changed his middle name from 'William' to 'I Love Spam' by deed poll after being obsessed with the product that was introduced to him by his grandad was surprised when his fiancee Anne Mousley announced they would be exchanging their vows at the museum dedicated to the canned meat product in America when they tie the knot later this year.

She told the Liverpool Echo newspaper: "He saw on the news last year that the SPAM museum had just been revamped and he just said 'we are going there.'

"So, then the wedding fund was turned into saving to go to the museum."

And Mark has dubbed the surprise venue plans as a "dream come true".

He added: "I literally cannot believe it. I had no idea she had planned this, none what so ever."

The pair will get hitched at the venue in April and will be the first couple to get married there.

Commuting can age skin by a decade

Commuting can cause your skin to age by 10 years, an expert has claimed.

Skin expert Lorena Oberg has issued a warning to commuters for long-term skin damage as she believes pollution in the air can cause long lasting dermatological effects which can reduce levels of collagen, the structural protein our skin relies on to remain elasticated.

She told The Sun newspaper: "Pollution particles can find their way on to your skin and get absorbed into your pores.

"As the affects of very high pollution can include premature ageing and dehydrated skin the area's of the skin and problems which occur are pretty much the same."

And Lorena says the best way to prevent skin damage while commuting is to keep hydrated by drinking water.

She added: "The best ways to prevent this are the simplest, yet most militant.

"Rehydrate your skin by drinking plenty of water this helps restore balance.

"Wash your skin thoroughly and do it as soon as you get home from a highly polluted area."

Women with four popular names likely to get engaged

Women named Amy, Emma, Gemma or Lisa were among the most likely to get engaged on Valentine's Day.

Researchers have found the data by looking at the average names of brides and grooms in the UK, and deducting the average time it takes to get engaged.

The specific name choices come from research which showed the names of engaged couples' birth dates, which were most popular between the period of 1980 and 1984, which then enabled them to come up with the list of names, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Further research concluded that men named Lee, John, Craig or Michael were most likely to pop the question on the annual day.

Teen almost blinded by eyebrow tinting

A teenager was almost left blinded after suffering a chemical reaction from tinting her eyebrows.

Tylah Durie, a 16-year-old beauty student from Victoria, applied some of her 1000 Hour's Eyelash and Brow Dye kit to her brows for a darker look before experiencing severe burns and swelling around her eyes, with excruciating pain shortly afterwards.

She told the Metro newspaper: "I woke up almost blind because of the reaction. My eyes had blown up like huge balloons. I was crying and screaming."

Tylah likened the experience to having sand thrown in her eyeballs.

She added: "It was like having beach sand thrown in your eyeballs and not being able to get it out, then a stinging like razor blades on my eyebrows."

The teen was later hospitalised with chemical burns where doctors explained that she had suffered a rare but severe reaction, and is lucky that she wasn't permanently blinded.
