I have been travelling for about a year now but there are some things that really get to me as a disabled traveller.I had a stroke in my 20s – but I didn’t let it stop me from following my dreams
I had a stroke about five years ago and it has left me unable to use my right arm. So although I can do an awful lot of stuff there is still a lot that I have difficulty with.
Of course there are many difficulties that apply to everyone, especially the 30-something traveller that isn’t up… Read the full story

‘We’re giving too much importance to these petty things,’ photographer Ben Hopper tells metro.co.uk.
He’s the man behind Natural Beauty, a photo series normalising one of those little things that people keep making a big fuss over: armpit hair.Stunning photo series will make you want to grow out your armpit hair
As part of Natural Beauty, Ben recruited women ‘who look like models and actresses’, asked them to grow out the hair under their arms, then took their photos.
‘The project started back in 2008/2009, and it was published in 2014,’ Ben tells us.
‘The motivation was both my own liking of seeing women with armpit hair, and a joke about modern art and contemporary art, how if you repeat something enough it will make an impact.
‘I personally like the look. I find it attractive.’
Why women who looked like models and actresses? To challenge our expectations of beauty.
Today in ‘wow, kind of wish I didn’t know that’ news, apparently there are some men in the world who are turning coconuts into makeshift sex toys.
Over on the TIFU (that’s today I f***ed up, for the uninitiated) subreddit, one man going by coconutthrowaway69, has shared a story titled ‘TIFU by cumming in a coconut’.Stunning photo series will make you want to grow out your armpit hair

Calorie and macro counting can be a minefield – particularly when you’re constantly surrounded by images of food online.
Many of us have said ‘so long’ to bread. Have swapped out refined sugars for ‘healthier substitutes’. Have given up the occasional treat of chocolate spread for peanut butter. We don’t exactly know what we’re doing but we see fitness bloggers doing it and we want in.Dr.Jart+ has launched in Selfridges so we can finally get our hands on those rubber masks
But most of them don’t know what they’re doing either. Which is why Lucy Mountain,… Read the full story
To the non-skincare-lover, Dr.Jart+ may sound like an offbrand line of multivitamin, or a TV ‘doctor’ intent on helping people through trauma by yelling at them in front of a live studio audience.Regina George is alive and well and this student’s yearbook photos prove it
But beauty fans will know that Dr.Jart+ is a hero brand spotted all over Instagram and on the faces of celebs.

Kneading or padding is one of those strange activities that your cat may do on a regular basis, but why do they do it?
Cats have many subtle ways to imply or suggest things to us owners, mainly so that we will get up and feed them.Why turning off my phone notifications was the best idea I’ve had in months
They are not kneading in practice to make the world’s best pizza, unfortunately.
Of course, there are many theories to explain why cat’s knead but there isn’t one definitive answer.

But one student’s end of school photos has been causing an internet sensation.
Because April Turner is proof that Regina George is alive and kicking.
The senior student uploaded her photos online and the internet lost its head over how much she looked like the Mean Girl.

The island of Madeira is often thought of as a more of a getaway destination for the grey of hair or simply a day visit for cruise tourists.

Cats are lovely, but fickle beasts.
They’ll either love you immediately, running up to slam their head into your hand and weave between your legs, or they’ll reject you with an unbearable cruelty that leaves you hurt and humiliated.Meet the 'No BS' food comparison blogger who wants us to know what calories look like
Or they’ll love you, then suddenly switch to scratching your hands off for rubbing their tummies (which they always seemed to like before).
Take Nancy, for example.
