And so, before any healthy resolutions kick in, let’s feast on some mash.


The BBC’s website and iPlayer went down yesterday and what better and classic way to mark the occasion, than a good ol’ fashioned #. While the Beeb’s tech team was frantically trying to work out how to get things back up and running, #BBCDown was trending on Twitter.

New Year’s Eve Posts

Hands up if any of these have graced your Facebook feed in the past 24 hours! Double points for more than three. I’ve had five (so far)! Also raise your hand if YOU posted any one of these gems:

‘New year, new me!’

“Time for a Facebook cull”

‘2016 is going to be MY year’

‘Guess who said yes!?’

‘See you next year!’ (posted at 11:59 PM)

‘I remember 2015 like it was yesterday’ (00:01)

‘It doesn’t even feel like New Year…’

‘Couldn’t quite make it ’til midnight’ (with photo of sleeping child/small dog/cat)

‘Thank you to everyone who made this year special (enter 2462345365 names) #blessed’

All, or some, accompanied by:

a. drunken pouting selfies

b. blurry fireworks

c. glitter

d. all of the above

Some things never change!

From my Tumblr to yours, here are the best, most reblogged memes of last year.

May I just say… they are ideal hangover cures!


More and more people are discovering the wonders of Snapchat, and they come from all walks of life and all ages. A Belgian father has recently found internet fame after posting a series of incredible pictures of his baby son turned into famous characters. Lukas Costeur, a graphic designer, now has hundreds of fans, following his creative snaps of Felix as Batman, Super Mario, Spider-Man and even Rich Uncle Pennybags from the game Monopoly.
