    As someone who has a pretty large tattoo collection (24 and counting), I get asked ‘So what do they all mean?’ a lot.

    Teacher creates care packs for students who start periods unexpectedly at school

    And the answer? Nothing. None of them mean anything.

    But when I say that, people look at me as though I’m crazy, as though they can’t comprehend how I’ve inked my body without a deep meaning behind it.

    The assumption that tattoos have to hold a meaning is a total cliche.

    The bottom line is, if you’re more concerned about how you’re going to explain the ink… Read the full story

    Meet Pam – a disabled lamb who was born completely unable to walk, and was abandoned in a field in Chile at just a few days old.

    Thankfully, she was rescued and taken to Santuario Igualdad, a shelter which cares for farm animals in El Monte, Chile, where she was nursed back to health.

    And given the gift of walking.

    There’s nowhere quite like M&S Simply Food.

    It’s the kind of place busy mums buy ready meals when they’ve left their kids in an afterschool club just a few hours too long.

    Watch a disabled lamb take its first steps with a specially-made stroller

    The kind of food hall that’s packed with delicious convenience dinners which could pass as home-cooked grub.

    And sometimes all you want is to once again get your hands on a packet of M&S cannelloni and remember those halcyon days when your mum would run you a bath and say a treacle pud was waiting for you afterwards.

    26 days a year. 4.5 years of our lives.

    A new research study by OnePoll has found that, out of 2000 British adults surveyed, the average adult dedicates an hour and forty minutes of every day to the quest for perfection in their looks, love life, and career.

    Bagel makers New York Bakery Co. created the poll as part of their new ‘The Woman Who Runs New York’ advertising campaign – the £4 million campaign fronted not by a glamorous star, but by the smoking, 82-year-old Edna that intends to celebrate authenticity.

    After one too many hangovers, you bravely decide that enough is enough and you are going to live a life without booze.

    Model says she's happier being a size 16 because she's finally 'learned to love me'

    When you embarked on this journey you imagined saving a ton of money, feeling constantly refreshed and being able to avoid the temptation of drinking.

    This is Chemical X’s latest creation.

    The British artist, who rose to fame with a series of pieces featuring a load of E pills is back – drugs included.

    This time, his artwork is called ‘The Spirit of Ecstasy’ and it’s been constructed out of more than 7,000 ‘meticulously hand placed’ ecstasy pills.

    If you want to fly really high, it's time to try AcroYoga

    Known for designing the original Ministry of Sound logo, Chemical X’s identity is unknown.

    His newest piece – a collaboration with artist Shoony – uses ecstasy to create mesmerising concentric circles around a hyperrealistic model made out of silicone… Read the full story

    We’ve all got marks and features that make us unique.

    Some are hidden in places that only get seen mid-coitus. Others are out there for everyone to see.

    Watch a disabled lamb take its first steps with a specially-made stroller

    And whether it’s hyperpigmentation, a prominent mole, or a birthmark, it can be tempting to reach for the foundation or concealer in a bid to look as uniform as possible.

    But one new bride is showing that it’s never too late to embrace what makes us different – and to show it off with aplomb.

    Being given nice earrings is all well and good but after a while, they inevitably go missing.

    Unless you wear all your jewellery all the time, you always end up with one earring or half the number of bracelets you started out with.

    What we all need is somewhere to keep our precious metals safe.

    Somewhere with strong walls to stop bits from falling out.

    Somewhere with a deep centre to act as a gold resting place.

    Somewhere like a vulva.

    At least…a ceramic vulva plate.

    The fitness industry is constantly finding new buzzwords to link with stuff people have been doing for years.

    You’ve been chomping on chicken and swerving peanuts for years, and suddenly you’re Paleo. You’ve been dallying with dumb bells every week not knowing you’re a resistance training veteran.

    Apparently going to see a doctor can be an extremely awkward experience (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    Going to see a doctor for a medical concern is supposed to be a reassuring and helpful experience, but for some poor souls it all tumbled into the realm of awkwardness.

    The average Brit spends 12 hours a week striving to be perfect

    Typically if you’re feeling a bit poorly you promptly book yourself in for a trip to your doctor where you go in the hope that they will make you feel better, but sometimes it goes terribly wrong.

    You might think that the best street food in New York would be pizza.

    NYC = pizza. Pizza = NYC.

    This ceramic vagina jewellery plate is all anyone's ever wanted

    It’s all you ever hear about from mates who’ve visited the big apple – how INCREDIBLE the pizza slices are.

    But next time you know of someone about to head across the pond, you might want to tell them to forget the ersatz Italian in favour of something far more flavoursome.

    Because the best street food in New York is Nigerian.

    From the age we learn to walk and talk, we are told about the importance of looking after our bodies – why not our minds?

    Whether it is parents telling us to eat our greens or adverts that stress the importance of a fit and healthy lifestyle, we are bombarded with information from a young age about keeping our bodies as healthy as possible.

    The best street food in New York is from this Nigerian vendor

    Yet we are very rarely encouraged, in the same way, to take regular care of our minds.

    Only in recent years has society become better at encouraging people to seek help if they are struggling with mental health issues – let alone advocating that we incorporate care for our minds into our daily lives as we would with our bodies.

    As a result, many people only think to look after their mental health when they feel at crisis point,… Read the full story

    It takes a certain amount of confidence in your relationship to get a pet.

    Some might say, it’s akin to having a child.

    Forget your cardio, the key to injury-free exercise is 'functional fitness'

    Gone are the days of being irresponsible wreck-heads, dry humping each other in clubs and spending Saturdays in your underpants eating takeaway on the living room floor together.

    You’ve got a pup to look after now! That baby needs walking, feeding, taking for a poo.

    You’ve gone from being just two kids in love to being a family, a neat trio, a complete unit.

    Dogs are all blessed creatures.

    But dachshunds are something else.

    How to look after your mental health on a daily basis

    They waddle along, close to the ground like little sausages escaping from their packaging. The sight of one of them rolling around is enough to bring a tear of joy to even the stoniest heart.

    So imagine seeing hundreds of the little fellas running around – in fancy dress.

    This weekend is the annual Teckelrennen Hophaus Dachshund Race in Melbourne.

    It is usually in these incidents that you regret not being better prepared, as you find yourself trying to change a tyre with a whatever you can find rolling around in the back of your boot.

    Some warm blankets, a spare battery and even a physical map always come in handy when you find yourself in a tricky situation.

    Tell me something new.

    There’s only one thing more annoying than the obvious fact that we all spend so much time on social media, and that is the ‘woke’ artists who illustrate this point through creating repetitive ‘artistic’ metaphors about how we are obsessed with technology.

    Can we stop with the viral 'illustrations of modern life' - they are boring and annoying

    And then claim that their work is somehow revolutionary.

    The trend for such viral online illustrations, normally captioned something along the lines of ‘these illustrations PERFECTLY capture the dark truth of modern life’, are not only unoriginal, but are often also really… Read the full story

    We’ve all at one point in our misspent youths acted dumb in order to make someone else feel better.

    Whether it’s pretending that we don’t know some basic sport rule or have never heard of a not-so-obscure political philosophy, many women are guilty of dumbing down in order to win the hearts of less-impressive guys.

    But if you think that ends when we grow up a bit and realise our own self worth, then think again.

    Women have finally been given a platform to celebrate who they are, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian hailing the change in beauty standards from waifs to ‘thicker’ women.

    Self love bloggers, Instagrammers, advocates have taken over, telling us that boobs, bums and bellies are back and they’re desirable.
