Thanniya Logiswaran, a Malaysian woman, wrote an honest Facebook post about why she and her husband chose to have a simple wedding, despite being criticised by some who expected a lavish affair.

Speaking of weddings, Fattah Amin and Nur Fazura were rumoured to have married or are about to. More causes for celebration: Yuna turned 31 earlier this week and Miranda Kerr is expecting a baby!

A couple of Korean stars caught our attention this week. Super Junior's Kangin had been arrested for assaulting a woman. Meanwhile, Big Bang's Seungri is opening a restaurant in Kuala Lumpur.

In other celeb headlines, yet another woman has accused Ed Westwick of sexually assaulting her. One good piece of news amid the many sexual assault allegations is this: Warner Bros. has cut Brett Ratner's company from the Wonder Woman sequel after Gal Gadot threatened to leave the production because of Ratner's sexual harassment allegations. While we're on the topic of movies, be sure to read all the exciting new things we learned about the Fantastic Beasts sequel (and see what Jude Law looks like as Dumbledore).

Just 37 sleeps until Christmas! If you haven't started shopping for gifts or for yourself, here are a few ideas (with more to come in the next weeks): big beauty sets, holiday makeup palettes and party pouches. Meeting a few friends this weekend? Head to brunch favourite Birch after dark for some of the best cocktails in town.

Have a good weekend!
