How the Pineapple Became the Icon of I.V.F.

Pineapples have become a powerful symbol for women struggling with infertility.

The fruit appears in the profile photos and Facebook feeds of women in online infertility communities, and dominates hashtags related to in vitro fertilization on Instagram.

Women arrive for egg retrievals wearing pineapple leggings, T-shirts and dresses. They jot down notes in pineapple-covered notebooks and binders. Some use pineapple cookie jars and boxes to store I.V.F. medications, and ease the pain of daily injections with pineapple-shaped ice packs.

Many who are trying to conceive wear pineapple socks and jewelry to work, and fill their homes with pineapple picture frames and other tchotchkes. Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh, a fertility specialist in San Francisco, said that “probably 75 percent” of her patients arrive for their I.V.F. procedures wearing something with a pineapple on it.

[What to know about I.V.F. preparation, side effects and risks]

Pineapples have long been a topic of hopeful discussion in fertility circles. Patients tell each other that eating pineapple on an empty stomach the day of your embryo transfer can help you get pregnant. Pineapple contains a mix of enzymes called bromelain, which, according to the N.I.H., may debride scar tissue and decrease inflammation.

But evidence of the correlation between the fruit and fertility remains more anecdotal than scientific.

“There’s no evidence in the literature that says consuming pineapple prior to an embryo transfer will improve implantation,” said Dr. Tomer Singer, a reproductive endocrinologist at Shady Grove Fertility.

And while Dr. Eyvazzadeh said that bromelain could improve the implantation process, she suggested taking it as a supplement, in the form of a pill. “I ask people around the time of their transfer not to eat pineapple core,” she said. “The core can be really gritty, and the last thing you should do is introduce something that could upset your stomach on the day of your transfer.”

Regardless of its medicinal properties, women have clung to the sunny fruit as an emblem of their fertility journey. “The pineapple is a call to arms,” said Penelope Major, 38, who has dealt with infertility and now sells pineapple products through an Etsy shop called HeartMyMugs. She sees the merchandise as a conversation starter around a subject that can produce feelings of shame and unworthiness.

“If you’ve gone through infertility, you go through this stage where you just don’t feel good enough,” Ms. Major said. “You feel like there’s no one to talk to.”

Alexis Pearson, 30, who runs an Etsy shop called ThisWildNest, sells pineapple scrunchies. For each unit sold, she donates another to a fertility clinic. “The whole ‘stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside,’” she said, explaining the pineapple’s significance, “it’s trying to give someone strength when they’re going through something that’s kind of crappy.”

Gina Rosales, 35, is pregnant with her second child through I.V.F. Even post-birth, she said, the pineapple can be a powerful tribute to a woman’s pregnancy journey. After her daughter was born, she bought a dainty pineapple charm bracelet on Etsy.

She also incorporated touches of pineapple into her daughter’s nursery. “Her laundry hamper has a gold pineapple on it,” Ms. Rosales said, “She has a little pineapple night light. Nothing overboard, but just little things paying homage to how she got here.”

The pineapple has also been picked up by people who want to show support for friends and family on their I.V.F. journeys. Tracey Bambrough and Sara Marshall-Page, two I.V.F. mothers who founded, an I.V.F. community and fertility magazine, began selling pineapple pins in December 2016.

“We’re trying to break the silence of infertility and normalize it,” Ms. Marshall-Page said. “It shouldn’t be spoken about in whispers.” The women estimate that they have sold more than 25,000 pins.

Amie Baaske, a 34-year-old who is on her third round of I.V.F., began selling pineapple merchandise on an Etsy shop called ChiefAndLily as a way to help cover the costs of infertility treatment. A baby outfit for sale on her site has text that reads, “She ate a lot of,” atop an image of three pineapples. Beneath the fruit are the words “Now I’m here.”

Ms. Baaske said that the pineapple may resonate because it is fairly neutral and positive. “Needles,” she said, “aren’t really a symbol you’d put out there. Baby aspirin you wouldn’t think to make a symbol of hope.”

Of course, before they were adopted by the infertility community, pineapples carried other significance. They are most widely known as a symbol of hospitality and welcoming. But on social media, pineapples are inextricably tied to infertility. On Instagram, the hashtag #PineappleTribe aims to connect women going through I.V.F.

“Women are celebrating their fertility journeys and connecting with others who are on the same journey with them,” said Kati Magnauck, 33, a mother of one, who runs the apparel brand IVF Got This. “Because it’s become this symbol, whenever you see a pineapple you get excited. It represents hope.”

See Rafael Nadal’s Wife Mery's Hand Embroidered Rosa Clará Wedding Dress

It’s “love all” for tennis star Rafael Nadal and Mery “Xisca” Perelló.

The couple — who have reportedly been dating more than 14 years — tied the knot on Saturday on Mallorca, a Spanish island in the Mediterranean and Nadal’s hometown, according to AFP.

Wearing a gown designed by Rosa Clará, the bride served up sheer elegance to match the newlyweds’ picturesque big day.

Mery, in photos shared on the designer’s official Instagram, can be seen in the long-sleeved dress, which includes a jeweled neckline, floral motifs, and microbeads on hand-embroidered fabric.

“The whole process was full of emotions between all of us,” Clará captioned a video showcasing the outfit’s creation process. “We just want to thank the whole family for trusting in us, you’re extraordinary.”

Described as an “exquisitely clean-lined haute couture design,” the gown took inspiration from Art Deco designs, and its “ballgown-style skirt, made of silk crepe, featured a weightless detachable train,” according to Clará’s Instagram.

“I know it’s an enormous responsibility, but it’s an honor for me,” Clará says in the behind-the-scenes video. “The connection between Mery and me was immediate.”

Clará also designed a second dress for the bride, a Chantilly lace halter top gown, which featured scalloped flower motifs and transparent microbeading on hand-embroidered fabric.

Over the summer, the Barcelona-based designer created the wedding day look for Monaco’s Marie Chevallier, a white silk crepe jumpsuit.

Nadal and Perelló were engaged in Rome, Italy, in May, according to Hola! Spain.

In a rare comment on his personal life, Nadal previously told Hello! he is looking ahead to having kids of his own. “Obviously, I have the intention of forming a family,” he said. “I love children and I would like my children to do what they like.”

Rafael Nadal and Mery Perello, 2015

The athlete, 33, is undefeated in his French Open appearances and holds the most titles for singles wins at the Grand Slam tournament, male or female, in tennis history. Earlier this year, Nadal claimed his 19th Grand Slam victory at the 2019 U.S. Open.

Meet the sexy chef earning thousands from doing cooking videos in bikinis – The Sun

AN AMATEUR chef is making thousands of pounds online after cooking up a storm in her kitchen – naked.

Ruby Day runs a popular Cooking Naked series on YouTube, which has seen her rack up more than 450,000 followers.

Red-haired Ruby, from Texas, USA, whips up everything from muffins to pasta salad wearing nothing but a tiny apron.

Her ‘recipe’ videos are a hit with fans, and Ruby uses strategically place emojis to cover her modesty when her apron slips.

While her cooking videos aren’t that long – two minutes on average – some of her tutorials have been watched more than 900,000 times.

Commenting on one of her most clips – a Tuscan chicken recipe – one fan said: “I watched the whole video, and I don’t even cook.”

Another wrote: “What did you cook for dinner again?”

A third said: “Ruby could be making PBJ sandwiches and I still would be enraptured.”

Ruby said that her point of her page was to spread “sexy comedic positivity”.

She told the Daily Star: “It’s a great motivation for people to cook.

“The majority of my patrons come for the healthy recipes and stay for the laughs.

“I love creating the cooking videos, they are so much fun with good food too.”

She has a dedicated ‘patreon’ page where she earns money from fans subscribing to her content.

costs range from £2.31 ($3) to £15.40 ($20) a month, where she promises a look at her “newest uncut cooking naked recipe videos and archives”.

And she also sells premium packages for £38.51 ($50) and £96.26 ($125), as well as a ‘personalised cooking video’ for £154.02 ($200), netting the Youtuber thousands a month.

Meanwhile this bride had a bouquet made of chicken nuggets at her wedding.

And this couple had a Disney-themed wedding complete with a ten tier cake.

Plus this man's dinner of cheesy mashed potato on toast was branded a 'vomit inducing carb fest'.

Veggie-First Eating, and Thinking

Veggie Mijas is a collective of over 300 nonbinary, female-identifying people and women of color in 12 chapters across the United States, and the group — originally founded by Amy Quichiz and Mariah Bermeo — facilitates community building through vegan potlucks, cleaning up community gardens and hosting youth seminars to teach children about the importance of growing their own food.

“Veggie Mijas is about reclaiming what a plant-based lifestyle looks like, which isn’t just about not eating meat,” said Ms. Quichiz, 24, a native of Queens, N.Y., who is Peruvian and Colombian. “It’s about what we can do for our communities, and about reflecting on the systems around us that impact the choices that we make.”

In 2018, following her move back to New York City after college, Ms. Quichiz started asking for recipes from other Latinx people in her community as part of her own many attempts to start eating healthier in the aftermath of late-night binges as a student. She started an Instagram account and then a website as a resource for recipes and community. The response she got prompted her to start the collective.

For Ms. Quichiz, her frequent attempts to start eating better were interrupted by what she said were her lack of knowledge and systemic racism that creates food deserts in many poorer neighborhoods. The result is what some members of Veggie Mijas refer to as “white veganism,” and a lack of resources when it comes to eating well.

“Mainstream vegan spaces, both online and in person, aside from being predominantly white, have been middle-class and able-bodied,” said Brandie Skorker, 33, a Veggie Mijas organizer from Boston.

“We need spaces where we can talk about the food justice issues we’re so passionate about and come up with solutions while creating bonds and community,” Tammy Arias, 25, who started a chapter in Miami, wrote in an email.

Here are some solutions.

Question everything

Consider every aspect of food: production, how it’s labeled and how it’s being sold.

“Just because it says ‘organic’ doesn’t mean it’s healthy,” Ms. Quichiz said, noting soy as an example. “It’s technically good for you, but you’re not supposed to eat it all the time, and it’s not necessarily ethically grown. The revolution we want doesn’t include capitalist brands profiting off people of color. It’s about supporting ourselves by learning what’s good for us.”

Know where your food comes from

The easiest way to know about your food is to grow it yourself, which is an unrealistic expectation for many. But you don’t need your own farm; volunteering at a community garden is a great way to gain access to land on which to plant, while also engaging with your community.

Farmers’ markets are another way to be conscious of where your food comes from. In New York, for example, farmers’ markets accept food stamps. Veggie Mijas — mijas is a Spanish term of endearment — offers an online directory on its website that helps you find a farmers’ market in your community.

Write down your parents’ recipes

Learn about the plant-based foods your parents ate and incorporate them into your diet. When Ms. Quichiz started eating a vegan diet, she took home a bag of quinoa from Whole Foods. Her father laughed and said he used to eat quinoa as a poor child in Peru. Finding out the history of different vegetables and recipes shows you how they have been commodified, Ms. Quichiz said.

Looking into your cultural background can also teach you about other ways food can be important. “Food is medicine,” she said. “Our ancestors made healing tools and survived because of it.”

But don’t be afraid to change those recipes

Another problem the women have encountered, even within their own communities, is that people believe they can’t cook traditional dishes without meat and dairy products. When Ms. Quichiz recently spoke at the University of California in Santa Barbara, a student told her she “didn’t know how to go vegan as a Salvadoran, because she would miss her food too much.”

Veggie Mijas has compiled traditional recipes with a modern spin like vegan ceviche and Ms. Quichiz’s favorite, a Peruvian dish called papa la huancaína, into a cookbook, “Casa Verde.”

Organize your tribe

For Ms. Skorker, healthy options were generally inaccessible in her community in Vermont, so her friends would just opt for fast food. When she was 25, she wanted to make a life change and sought out community to help her do so but wasn’t always met with enthusiasm.

“The reactions to me saying I’m vegan in the ’hood is something I’ve learned not to take personally,” she said, “because veganism can be expensive. And in places where vegetables don’t grow and folks rely on meat and milk, paying $14 for a bag a grapes is just not an option.”

The collective spreads the word online and at events, as well as through what Ms. Quichiz calls “the old-fashioned way”: printing homemade fliers and passing them around. When it comes to creating a new chapter, anyone can contact the group through its website.

There are benefits to a vegan diet, even if it is not 100 percent of the time

Not everyone can manage to be completely plant-based all the time, because of finances, health or other limitations. “A lot of people militarize veganism, and it’s important not to do that,” Ms. Quichiz said. “You have to figure out what it means for you.”

Whether that means cutting out all animal products or eating them only when you don’t have access to vegan alternatives, “if you change the way you eat, you’ll change the way you think about the world,” Ms. Quichiz said.

That can include where you shop, what you wear, how you recycle and what you buy.

“When we talk about access — whether it’s fast fashion or fast food — even though I’m rooting for you to buy that $5 shirt because it’s affordable, you have to be conscious of why it’s so cheap,” Ms. Quichiz said. “Thinking about those things are the first step.”

Kate Middleton’s Pakistan royal tour wardrobe is so much more than just clothes

From traditional salwar kameez to incorporating local designers into her royal tour wardrobe. 

As someone who travels relatively frequently, I think that I have really considered what I am packing if I have written a list and separated my underwear into discarded dust bags. At a stretch I would have packed three black dresses should a last minute occasion occur. And that really is the extent of how much I think about my travelling wardrobe.

For Kate Middleton, that lack of consideration just isn’t an option. This week the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge embarked on a five-day royal tour in Pakistan, which has been dubbed by Kensington Palace as a “most complex” visit to the country. For many (if not all) royal occasions, what Kate wears makes headlines – sending fans into a shopping frenzy and editors into a trend spin.

Many people might comment that these are ‘just clothes’, but as we have seen on this recent Pakistan tour, the Duchess’ carefully considered outfit choices have been as much a political statement and a deep consideration for the country she is visiting, as they have been a choice of personal style. 

Take her first outfit on this tour as prime example: she stepped off the plane at Rawalpindi’s Nur Khan Airbase in a custom-made Catherine Walker & Co outfit that saw her pay homage to both the country and to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. The turquoise colour that she chose is said to bring protection and the design was made to look like a salwar kameez – a long dress and trousers that is traditional dress in both Pakistan and India – even down to the ruching at the back of the dress that was akin to a scarf that would be commonplace with this sort of outfit in Pakistan.

The Duchess’ next outfit on the tour was even more traditional than the first; she opted for a cornflower blue salwar kameez with delicate embroidery on the neckline. For me, as an Indian woman, it was quite remarkable to see a member of the British royal family wear something so similar to clothing I would wear for a special occasion. 

A sentiment that contributing digital editor, Sarah Shaffi shares, “As someone who grew up wearing shalwar kameez – and as someone who still wears it on an almost daily basis – seeing Kate embrace the clothing of Pakistanis has been wonderful. She’s shown respect for Pakistani people, supported local designers, and put her own sartorial spin on her outfits, marrying style and substance in the best way possible. There’s not an outfit she’s worn on this tour that I wouldn’t love for my wardrobe.”

Even more importantly, this particular outfit was created by local designer, Maheen Khan, and the earrings Kate chose to accessorise the look come from Zeen – an online retail platform from Pakistan that brings affordable fashion to women worldwide. 

For her meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan, Kate chose a green dress coat with contrasting white trousers and traditional scarf. The coat dress was chosen in that specific shade as a nod to the green in the Pakistan’s national flag (she continued with the colour theme with a glittering green dress from Jenny Packham) and even the style of the collar was in line with the most traditional design for both men and women in the country.

Naturally, there have been elements of the trip where Kate has had to take on traditional dress like when she visited Chitral and wore the regimental cop of the Chitral Scouts (which were the same pieces Princess Diana wore to in trip in 1991), cementing just how willing Kate has been in this trip to show her embrace of the country and its heritage. 

Even something as small as the cricket match she undertook involved a considered sartorial choice. Kate sported another salwar kameez, but this time one from Pakistan brand Gul Ahmed that was light in cut and fabric in keeping with traditional cricket whites.  

For her last look on the Pakistan royal tour, Kate  went back to her designer of choice, Maheen Khan, and wore a turquoise salwar kameez for her visit to the Badashi Mosque. On such an occasion, the Duchess could well have chosen to wear a western style trouser suit or even a long dress but that’s not been Kate’s style at all on this trip – she has wanted to show the importance of traditional dress and the meaning that it holds for not only the country but for its people. She finished her tour (and her ensemble) with a matching headscarf, and went against royal protocol with bare feet. 

Whilst many people might dismiss this royal tour as a public relations stunt or hold little value in the royal family all together, what Kate and her clothes have achieved on this trip has been nothing short of wonderful.

In Pakistan, Kate Middleton Aces Fashion Diplomacy

Fashion Diplomacy With Kate and William

9 Photos

View Slide Show

So the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (the British royal couple known more colloquially as William and Kate) have come to the end of their Pakistan tour, the first royal visit in 13 years. It has been, by all accounts, a highly successful five days of outreach. They met with Prime Minister Imran Khan! And schoolchildren! Played cricket! Saw many sights!

And reminded the world of how very effective fashion can be as a tool of diplomacy.

The rapturous summaries of their every move were matched only by the rapturous summaries of their every garment. It’s been a while since clothes were employed quite so strategically and consistently to send an unspoken, but also unmistakable, message. The effect was refreshing.

From the moment they stepped off the plane, the Duke and Duchess (O.K., mostly the Duchess, but he played his part too) signaled their intent to allow the quadrillion pictures taken of them to speak louder than the words they uttered mostly behind closed doors. Their clothes made silent statements cross-border respect, cultural awareness and outreach. No detail, or earring, was overlooked.

Witness the aquamarine-to-silver draped-neck dress by Catherine Walker with matching pants, a bridge between a tea dress and a shalwar kameez, which the Duchess wore to deplane at Nur Khan airbase on Monday.

Witness the periwinkle-blue shalwar kameez she wore on a visit to Margalla Hills, north of Islamabad, designed by Maheen Khan, who once dressed Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan's former prime minister, as well as Jemima Khan, Prime Minister Khan’s ex-wife. (Ms. Bhutto’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds in London wears Ms. Khan’s design. Coincidence?)

Witness the jade-green A-line jacket by Ms. Walker worn over white pants by Ms. Khan, which the Duchess donned to meet the prime minister, an embroidered dupatta tossed over her shoulder.

Witness the emerald sequined Jenny Packham chosen for a reception at the Pakistan National Monument, which happened to be the green of the Pakistani flag, and which matched the sherwani, a traditional long coat, by the Pakistani designer Naushemian, worn by her husband.

(The couple has long been adept at color-coordinating their appearances for maximum image-making harmony.)

And there was more. So much more: earrings by Zeen, a Pakistani high street brand; another shalwar kameez by Gul Ahmed; a kurta by Élan Pakistan; a dupatta by Bonanza Satrangi; a coat from Beulah London. The clothes came at all price points and were often worn in concert: a little British style here, a little Pakistani there. The reaction was, almost entirely, ecstatic. Designers tweeted their excitement at being chosen. Observers applauded. Chroniclers of What Kate Wore went into overdrive.

Part of this, obviously, came from the boost given to local industry conferred by the Duke and Duchess, whose patronage can make national names known on the international stage. That’s always a welcome thing.

But a lot of it also indubitably comes from the fact that, after Melania Trump, whose intentions with her public clothing choices are often unclear; Ivanka Trump, who came under fire for wearing her own brand early in her father’s administration; and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, whose clothes sometimes seems to advance her own agenda above all, it has become an increasingly rare expression of soft power.

Fashion, when it is employed not simply at the service of making someone look good, or morally upright, can have resonance far beyond the ritual. It’s about time someone remembered.

Vanessa Friedman is The Times’s fashion director and chief fashion critic. She was previously the fashion editor of the Financial Times. @VVFriedman

I thought I was eating too much on holiday but ‘pregnant belly’ was actually a 2st cyst – The Sun

A WOMAN who was mistaken for being pregnant was actually carrying a cyst the weight of four newborn babies.

Jordanna Jones, 20, assumed she had just been eating too much when her belly started to grow.

And her swollen tummy had even attracted questions from her parents if she was expecting her first child.

However, it turned out Jordanna was actually carrying around a giant 50cm wide ovarian cyst weighing two stone – the same weight as if she was pregnant with quadruplets.

The carer, from Aberavon in Wales, first suspected something was wrong two years ago.

She said: "It all started about two years ago, I started to gain a lot of weight – around three stone. I didn’t think too much of it.

"I never really thought the stomach pains were worth going to the doctors for.

"Even though the pain was severe it was only for about two days at a time.

“I was gaining so much weight that I actually looked pregnant – my parents asked me if I was too.

"I thought I was just eating too much, everyone was telling me I needed to lose weight."

However, Jordanna discovered it was something much more than just weight gain when she suddenly developed chronic stomach pain while on holiday in Turkey.

On examination, doctors found Jordanna had a huge cyst that had leaked fluid into her lung, causing agonising pain.

They rushed her to surgery where she needed to have her lung drained and the cyst removed.

When Jordanna came out of intensive care, two days after the operation, doctors told her the cyst was 50cm wide and weighed 10kg, or nearly two stone.

I'm just really relieved to be alive. I’m just taking things day by day, I’ve had a full MOT on my body. It hasn't really hit me yet

She told Wales Online: "I'm just really relieved to be alive.

"I’m just taking things day by day, I’ve had a full MOT on my body. It hasn't really hit me yet."

Jordanna's mum Victoria Hughes flew out to Turkey to be with her while she was in hospital.

What is an ovarian cyst?

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that develops on an ovary. They're very common and do not usually cause any symptoms.

Most ovarian cysts occur naturally and go away in a few months without needing any treatment.

In these cases, you may have:

  • pelvic pain – this can range from a dull, heavy sensation to a sudden, severe and sharp pain
  • pain during sex
  • difficulty emptying your bowels
  • a frequent need to urinate
  • heavy periods, irregular periods or lighter periods than normal
  • bloating and a swollen tummy
  • feeling very full after only eating a little
  • difficulty getting pregnant – although fertility is unaffected in most women with ovarian cysts

She said: "I heard on the Friday and I was on a flight at 6am from Manchester on the Saturday morning. It was the longest journey of my life.

"It all happened so quick – when we got there, she was in intensive care."

After Victoria arrived, doctors tested the cyst to see if it was cancerous.

Victoria added: "It was the longest 12 days of my life. Jordanna didn't know so we were just waiting to hear back to tell her.

"We were walking around in a daze.

"When we got the all clear we were so over the moon."

Jordanna, whose insurance will only cover a third of her £18,000 medical bills, said the cyst was on one of her ovaries, which has now been removed.

She said she had missed a routine scan and has since urged people not to make the same mistake.

She added: "If I had gone to that appointment this could’ve been stopped.

"I’ve had so many people telling me they’ve missed appointments and now regret it."

Jordanna lost three stone straight after the cyst was removed and is now recovering well.

She said: "Now I'm home I've been to the GP and am being referred for follow up scans and things like that," she said.

“I’ve made so much progress.  I’m up and about – It’s quite amazing really."

Jordanna has now set up a JustGiving page to raise funds for the costs not covered by her insurance – you can donate here.

Rihanna's Slow-Motion Strut Is a Mood for Hump Day


All hail the queen! 

Rihanna just keeps on proving that no one does it better than her. Not only is she a talented musician, a beauty icon and all around fashion goals, but the confidence she exudes is incredible. The star took to Instagram today to not only show off her incredible strut, but to put pretty much everyone to shame. 

In the video, Rihanna does a slow motion walk in a chic black bikini with her toned abs on full display. Of course, she added a sheer pool robe to her ensemble, which just made it that much more fierce and sexy. Every time we think she can’t outdo herself, she somehow manages to prove that there is nothing she can’t do. 

Naturally, she added no caption to the post, and pretty much let her strut do the talking for her. It may be Wednesday, but she’s clearly feeling on top of the world.
