Full disclosure — I have never seen this show. Despite the fact that I haven’t watched a single episode, I’m thrilled for shippers of Patsy Mount and Delia Busby.

On Sunday night’s season 6 finale of Call The Midwife, Patsy and Delia FINALLY kissed after years of tension, lots of drama, and a prolonged separation. From what I’ve gleaned, the kiss was a long time coming!

Welp, it looks like I’ll be tuning in from now on. It’s a good thing the BBC has ordered three more seasons of the show!

Plot twist!

On Tuesday, Cara took to Instagram to announce she had written a book called Mirror, Mirror. The “coming-of-age story”(set to hit shelves in October of 2017) centers around five maturing teens and a “tragic” death.

The official synopsis:

“A gripping coming-of-age story that explores identity, sexuality, friendship and betrayal for fans of WE WERE LIARS, GO ASK ALICE and THE GIRLS. Friend. Lover. Victim. Betrayer. When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Sixteen-year-old friends Red, Leo, Naima and Rose are like anyone their age: figuring out who they are and trying to navigate the minefield of school and relationships. Life isn’t perfect, but they’re united by their love of music and excited about what the future holds for their band. That is until Naima dies in tragic circumstances, leaving behind only one word. ‘Sorry’. What awful truth was she hiding? What dark secret was lurking behind her seemingly sunny persona? And how did Red, the self-styled protector of the group, fail to spot the warning signs? While Rose turns to wild partying and Leo is shrouded by dark moods, Red sets out to uncover the truth and find out what – or perhaps who – was responsible for Naima’s death. It’s a journey that will cause Red’s world to crumble, exposing the dark and dangerous truth behind the fragile surface of their existence. Nothing will ever be the same again, because once a mirror is shattered, it can’t be fixed.”
The bisexual model also went on to gush:

Good for Cara! While I’m usually dubious of celeb-authored novels (take Kylie and Kendall Jenner’s 2014 book Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia, for instance), I have no doubt this was a genuine passion project of Delevingne’s. From the 24-year-old’s activism to her multi-faceted career, she seems to put her heart into everything she does.

On to Puma! Early this week the brand released its  ‘DO YOU’ campaign for Spring/Summer ’17. The spread features Cara clad in workout clothes and cozied up with a furry mascot.
