So your friends are heading to Majorca after watching Love Island, where there are more Essex types than Basildon, or they are going to Center Parcs yet again (abroad, because it’s cheaper).
And you are stuck in the UK wishing your trendy friend, who loves boasting about his gap year in Africa raising warthogs on Facebook, would bore off.
What you want is something seriously out-there. Whether it’s for a stag do, 40th birthday, or a trip of a lifetime, there are plenty of truly original holidays – especially if you have the money to pay for it.

The World Cup is a beautiful thing but gosh it can be stressful.
After ages, it looks like the coveted trophy might be in sight for the England football team, so naturally, fans are stressing.
To help England football fans manage their blood pressure and heart rate during the knockout games (BPM can more than double during an intense match), Freshpet, a pet food provider, think they have the solution.

The UK has been enjoying glorious sunshine lately.
This is good news for those of us who love heat, but it can be a confusing time for dog owners who aren’t sure whether to walk their pets or not.
Should I be walking my dog? What time should I be walking my dog? What temperature should I stop walking my dog?
Well, you definitely can walk your dog but… Read the full story

Although eyebrows are just little face slugs designed to keep dust out of your eyes, for me they’ve always been a point of contention.
With naturally dark hair on the rest of my head and body but inexplicably light and sparse eyebrows, it was a very weird look.
As Delevingne and co. swept in with bushy brows and made them all the rage, my 90s-style mismatched ones were even less easy on the eye. And I became obsessed with making them better.
Most body image issues are pretty stupid to other people.

Vegans with a sweet tooth are pretty blessed with vegan ice cream options these days.
The only thing that tastes better than vegan ice cream though? Free vegan ice cream.
Luxury dairy-free truffle and ice cream company Booja Booja will be bringing their pop-up tuk tuk to Camden Market next week to bless us with vegan ice cream cones, and they’re giving some away.
The tuk tuk will be there from 12 – 15 July and will be giving away 100 free ice creams each day to hot, hungry punters.

The contraceptive pill has been revolutionary in so many ways.
It’s allowed us to enjoy sex without the threat of having an unwanted baby. It’s given us the tools to actually shape our menstrual cycles and delay it if necessary. And for some, it’s also been helpful in managing symptoms of PMS.
But for those of us who play sports or are engaged in fitness, it may have played a part in keeping us injury-free.
Yep, our oral birth control is rumoured to be something of an injury prevention device. And as what goes up must come down, that means that when you stop taking the pill, you might leave yourself open to a greater risk of injury.
Sounds bonkers, right?
Claire, from 38 Degrees North, tells Metro.co.uk that our menstrual cycle plays a major role when it comes to our fitness, recovery and potential for injury.

Primark has confirmed that it’s launching ‘new improved’ dress sizing.
The new sizing will do away with conventional numerical sizes (e.g. 8, 10, 12) to make way for lettered sizing – with a much larger range.
Sizes will range from 2XS (equivalent to UK size 4/6) to 2XL (equivalent to UK size 22/24).
The move will affect selected products in womenswear, lingerie and nightwear.
See the new guide below.

In case you don’t know, strawberry legs (a colloquial term) are dark bumps you get on your legs that may look similar to the seeds on the skin of a strawberry.
Strawberry legs mostly happen as a result of clogged pores and hair follicles, though it’s often mistaken for a shaving rash.
Now that it’s finally summertime, you might want to wear skirts and dresses that show off your legs, so if you have strawberry marks, here’s how you can get rid of them.
Strawberry legs seem to be more common in people with darker skin but anyone can be affected as a result of dry skin, acne or folliculitis.

Sisters share a lot of things, even if a million arguments ensue as a result.
But is it okay to take your sister’s child’s name for your own baby? One user on Mumsnet asked the question and didn’t find a lot of people in her corner.
Her sister has a son called Benjamin and as the family lovingly call him Benji, she asked if it was okay to call her yet-to-be-born son Benjamin.
A lot of users thought she was being a bit of a copycat.
The expectant mum wrote on the blog: ‘Benjamin was going to be our name for a boy’.

You might throw all your bananas together for a banana cake when they go off, but if you’d prefer your bananas solo, you’ll need to know when they’re the perfect ripeness.
There seems to be a lot of different preferences when it comes to eating the yellow stuff.
Because the internet is the place where things go to be debated, an online discussion broke out about the perfect time to eat it.
A picture showing the 15 stages of a banana has now gone viral after a fitness page shared it on their Instagram.

Harry Potter fans will happily shovel anything butterbeer-themed into their gullets.
We’re easily swayed by a gimmick straight from Rowling’s books, okay?
So naturally we’re jazzed to discover that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood is now serving up butterbeer ice cream.
Let us repeat: Butterbeer. Ice cream.
Have you ever read such a magical combination of words?

Is no beauty treatment safe?
First we were warned of the risks of getting eyelash extensions. Then we discovered how wrong things can go if you don’t correctly remove your mascara before bed. Microblading might seem like a miracle eyebrow fix, but even that can have disastrous results.
Now it’s those trendy fish pedicures that are shrouded in horror.
You know the ones we’re talking about: The gimmicky pedicure in which you dunk your feet in water and tiny fish nibble away dead skin. They were all the rage for a while, then reports of bacterial infections put… Read the full story

When you’re travelling alone, there’s a good chance of being asked to swap seats so that couples can sit together.
While it can be annoying, you never know if that might be your Sliding Doors moment – as one couple’s tale of aeroplane love shows.
Rosey Blair was travelling home with her boyfriend last night when they asked to switch seats with a woman so that they could sit together.
To ease her pain, they made a joke that maybe her new seat partner would be the love of her life.
And from there, things escalated…
Yes, it’s hot. Yes, that’s bound to make you feel a bit grumpy.
So spare a thought for Pierre, who had to deal with this heat while lugging around 5lb of matted dreadlocks.
Pierre the poodle mix was brought into The Humane Society of North Texas in a truck along with more than 20 other animals – cats, dogs, a snake, a turtle, and sugar gliders. The woman surrendered the animals, having driven for five hours in the heat with them in the truck.
Pierre was one of the worst in shape, covered in such severe matting that he could barely move.

Heterosexual women are more attracted to men who display ‘benevolent sexism’ traits, a new study claims.
Benevolent sexism (BS) is sexism which views women in a stereotypical way – so things like thinking of women as being the homemakers and mothers, and as being gentle and nurturing (rather than say, leaders of industry).
The study, published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin by Pelin Gul from Iowa State University and Tom Kupfer from the University of Kent, asked 200 female students to read profiles of men which displayed signs of BS or non-BS attitudes, before rating… Read the full story

The football fan, in the mind’s eye of the general public, especially in the UK, has changed quite a bit over the last few decades.
Before the UK was known for its hooligans, who travelled the world to kick the sh*t out of anyone they could get their hands on after four pints too many.
Now, although still considered a boisterous crowd, as watching any England world cup game will attest to, UK footy fans are more likely to travel the world buying expensive local retro shirts after four pints too many than throw some chairs around.
And the purest manifestation of this new breed… Read the full story

In a love story to rival Jack and Dani from Love Island, we present to you – two loved-up penguins having a stroll on the beach.
The penguin couple can be seen touching flippers as they waddle out of the sea after their salty stroll, before turning to each other and (the next bit is pure speculation) asking what what the other one feels like eating.

There are plenty of famous guys out there to whom we only really refer by their last names.
Now have a think about how many women we treat the same.
Outside of politics, we very rarely talk about women using their surnames only – and a study suggests that that discrepancy might be exacerbating gender inequality.
A team of psychologists at Cornell University has found that professional men who are referred to by their surname are generally regarded as being more famous and important than professional women.
And professional women are more often referred to by both their first and last names.
