The rakish fellow you met last night with the suave dance moves, smoothly rehearsed lines, and your number listed as “Goddess #14” in his phone is fine for a flirt, but probably isn’t meet-the-parents material.
Used as an adjective to describe a dashing ladies’ man or a streamlined ship, rakish comes from the fusing of rake + -ish. He is stylishly handsome and prone to saucy, fast behavior. Synonyms include charming, flashy, and immoral.

The Color Run UK
This weekend I participated in The Color Run which took place at the Ethihad Stadium in Manchester. It's a 5K run in which you are covered in coloured powdered paint every 1K you pass (pink blue, yellow and orange). At the finish line you are given a bag of powder which everyone throws on top of one another in an amazingly colourful and fun festival style way. The Color Run takes place in Belfast on August 24th and in Brighton on September 14th. It is a great, fun day out.
