Its a tricky game of cat and mouse when it comes to deciding between two of the most covetable pieces of footwear to buy this season - so we thought we'd  break it down. We first spotted the adorable Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats last year when we drooled over them all winter through to this summer when they were confirmed as a carry through style to be produced each season -yay! Available in classic black and red velvet, in a summery espadrille style for SS12 and in a key new colour for each season going forward, the feline flats have been causing a websites to crash and stores to instantly sell out...

...but we then noticed a pair of twinkly Glitter mouse pumps by Marc by Marc Jacobs that had just landed in store at Matches, and from there our dilemma began. Even superstar songstress Beyonce couldnt decide between the two so she chose a super cute matching ensemble with her two month-old daugther Blue Ivy. Taking a stroll in the Big Apple, her outfit consisted of a dusty pink blazer over a baggy shirt with rolled-up jeans where both she and Blue were wearing matching pumps. While Mummy B followed in the fashionable footsteps of Alexa Chung with Charlotte Olympia's leopard-print kitty flats, Daughter B was sporting a pair of diddy mouse slippers by Little Marc Jacobs. Too cute! Baby B's animal flats have been so poplular that Selfridges London have dedicated an entire pop-up store to the adorable pumps.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
