    Examples of what would go where: Fashion is self-explanatory. xD Lifestyle would be links to etiquette pages, rules on dancing and other such shit. Historical events would be information about events that happened. Other is like... other stuff that doesn't really fit the above categories. Diaries of actual Victorian people and lists of weird baby names and shit.
