Blue Planet is visually stunning.
Imagine being able to take in the breathtaking views from the same boat that housed creators of the best nature show going.
Blue Planet II features an exploration vessel that facilitates the groundbreaking filming and is now available to the public via Airbnb.
David Attenborough’s iconic narrated documentary displays the Alucia, which becomes the temporary home of scientists, marine biologists and filmmakers of the show, making it the success that it is.
Not only are lucky winners able to experience living on board the mighty vessel, ocean lovers also get the chance to journey… Read the full story
She’s either the biggest troll on the planet or she genuinely believes we need these things in our lives.
Regardless, Gwyneth Paltrow never ceases to wow us with her kooky ideas. And by wow us, we mean she makes us scratch our heads in utter bewilderment and wince at the idea of shooting coffee up our bum.
Yes, Goop really did endorse that.
Goop’s latest project is bath salts, inspired by merry old England.
Gwyneth debuted the bath time staple on her treasure cove of new age remedies, Goop. But the ingredients, mustard, clay, and vinegar might make you want a shower after your soak.

Single girls are the hottest. Fact.14 reasons why being single in your thirties rocks
This is contrary to the popular belief that girls on their own have been left on the shelf or can’t find a boyfriend.
Hell no, being single is often proof that you’re damn hot, and it’s the very reason you haven’t settled down.
They’re prioritising themselves, their friends and their career, and they’re not going to settle for anyone who isn’t good enough for them.
Been single for a while? Here’s why you should wear it as a badge of honour.

You know the way you waste away Sundays by lounging in your towel doing f*** all for hours after your shower?
Well, that’s now a trend. All you need to do is get out your phone and snap a few selfies and voila, you’re pretty much an Instagram ~influencer~
Bathleisure started picking up steam as a fully-fledged trend back in November, when Rita Ora arrived at the EMAs wearing a bathrobe and a towel turban, complete with a diamond necklace and fully glammed makeup.
Then it became a proper trend when Rihanna rocked a towel on the cover of Vogue, because Rihanna has the first and last word on what’s cool.

Indonesia is arguably one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Comprising more than 17,000 islands, it’s got tropical jungle, more volcanoes than you want to think about, abundant marine wildlife and a surprisingly thriving hipster cafe scene.Learning the lingo and working on the move: here’s why travel can be fantastic for your CV
But it’s far away, and pretty different from the UK in many ways.
You don’t want to show up and embarrass yourself.
Here’s a round-up of some things you’ll probably want to know before you go.

Dreams have been analysed since we started trying to work out more about the human mind.
Freud had a lot to say on the topic, usually concluding that our dreams represented our desires in the working world. However, others simply say they’re random stories we’ve heard or memories being recounted.
The truth is somewhere in between and, while you definitely can’t predict your future or your full subconscious from dream reading, you can uncover some things.
Dreaming about a family member
According to Dreamhawk, dreaming about family has a lot to do with who you are deep down:
Family represent values, attitudes and emotional or social responses we have absorbed from… Read the full story

Superficial, just for sex, full of morons: these are just some of the critiques levelled at dating apps.

It doesn’t matter how great someone’s life looks on Instagram – they can still be struggling with their mental health.

The wellness industry has been known for spouting dubious advice.
And wellness Instagram is no better.
James Wong, a botanist and food writer has called out a ‘clean eating’ Instagrammer for posting a beautiful picture of a chia pudding, topped off with frozen berries and…toxic flowers.
The breakfast might look like your typically delightful, impossible-to-recreate IG dish, but James says that the beautiful white flowers decorating it are, in fact, poisonous.

Which emotion is stronger: an overwhelming fear of heights or an overwhelming need to get great pics for the ‘gram?
If you choose the latter, you might want to book a stay in one of these snazzy lodged in Peru’s Sacred Valley of Cusco.
Suspended 1,200ft off the ground, luxurious lodge capsules hang off the side of the side of mountains, giving incredible views out across the valley.
The Skylodge adventure suites can fit up to eight people, and each cabin has four beds, a dining area, and a private bathroom.
Oh, and the entire lodge has walls of windows, so you can always enjoy the view.

Remember bulletproof coffee?
It was pretty huge for a while, with many fitness bloggers and Youtubers advocating putting a big lump of butter or coconut oil into your morning cup.
There was some truth to their claims of health and energy boosts, but only if you’re about to be burning off some of those extra calories with a workout afterwards. Plus, using a drink as a meal replacement is never advised.

We should all know by now that sleeping on dirty sheets and pillowcases can cause all kinds of havoc to our skin.
The puddle of sweat, dirt, dead skin cells, and oils left over on the pillow case after you have a snooze is not something you want getting into your pores the next night, and the next, and the next.
Unless you want to risk infection, irritation, and acne, we suppose.
But let’s be real – it’d be quite the faff to wash our pillowcase every single night. While we know we could just buy an extra set and alternate, we are deeply lazy beings and would… Read the full story

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To get to the wardrobe and put on their wooly jumpers, obviously. It’s freezing outside.
Twelve bald hens living at the Reasheath College in Nantwich, Cheshire, are staying cosy through the chilly months thanks to their very own knitted jumpers, made by students at the college.
The hens were adopted by the college from the British Hen Welfare Trust, a rehoming charity for commercial laying hens which are destined for slaughter.
Having never been outside during their previous lives as commercial egg-laying hens, the chickens didn’t develop their feathers properly, leaving them susceptible to cold weather.
Most of the hens grew feathers once they moved to… Read the full story

‘I think I could say I’m addicted to injections,’ says Cyril Roux, a 32-year-old waiter from Toulon, France.
Cyril has spent more than £5,000 on lip fillers and botox over the last 18 months, all in an attempt to look more like his idol, Marilyn Monroe.
The waiter had his first session of Botox at the age of 26. Over the next few years Cyril had over twenty different procedures, including 16 lip filler sessions and botox.
He now hopes to save money to get a nose job, cheek implants, and chin implants.
‘I was first attracted to cosmetic procedures as I wanted to look younger and more like… Read the full story

Looking for a luxury weekend that won’t break the bank? You need look no further than Ljubljana.
Within easy reach from the UK for a short haul holiday, the quaint and quiet capital of Slovenia received a splash of cosmopolitan panache at the end of 2017 with the launch of the city’s first ever five star luxury hotel.Bingeing on the best bites in Baltimore – All the best places to eat in the US city

I’m a Millennial, which means I love to spend what little money I have on expensive coffees and ridiculous clothes.
My wardrobe is full of see-through tops and dresses covered in Barbie logos or camo print.
Since I’m often strapped for cash, most of these items come from websites like Missguided, Boohoo, and Pretty Little Thing. These brands offer me cool and unique garms without breaking the bank.
Then, you have the likes of Next and Warehouse for the thirty-and-forty-somethings. But what about women over 50?

Before last week, I’d never heard of face yoga.
Downward doggy yoga, yes. Cheek flicking yoga, no.
But apparently, Meghan Markle does it and where she leads, we now must all follow.
And that’s how we ended up doing a session of face yoga with world expert Danielle Collins.
‘It’s a combination of exercise for the face, massage, acupressure, relaxation and wellbeing,’ she tells Metro.co.uk.
