    An artist has used fruit and vegetables to create realistic sculptures of the human form, bicycles and other everyday objects - and they're awesome

    We're a bit obsessed with talended artist Dan Cretu and his incredible array of pieces, all created using humble fruit and vegetables.

  • 14 Things That Only People Who Hate Coriander / Cilantro Understand

    It's the devil's herb. And it's in EVERYTHING.

    Coriander - or cilantro to some - is the ultimate divider, you either love it, or you despise the very sight of it.

    And if you happen to be one of the latter, you're constantly mocked for your OTT response - UNTIL TODAY.

    The geniuses at 23andMe have discovered that the retch-inducing 'soapy' taste to the devil's herb is actually to do with your genes - not your 'picky' taste buds. And that, FYI, makes us winners.

    2. Even worse, when people say it’s their favourite and you’re like ‘WHAT’?

    3. When every stir fry pack at every supermarket is loaded with the stuff and you have to pick it out before you cook it.

  • This Cycling Device Projects Signals On To Cyclists' Backs

    The Cyclee allows riders to show when they're turning or slowing down - as well as a 'custom' option (that could be a LOT of fun)

    Earlier this week, Samsung revealed it's 'see-through truck' technology, allowing motorists to essentially see how safe the road ahead is in order to easily overtake larger vehicles.

    The Cyclee projects action indicators on to cyclist's backs.The Cyclee projects action indicators on to cyclist's backs.


    And now Azerbaijani designer Elnur Babayev has developed a similar device for cyclists, allowing them to indicate to other motorists and cyclists their intended actions using projected images on their own backs.

    The mounted device, the Cyclee, sits behind riders' seats and projects signals on to their clothing based on their actions.

    Stopping signs, indicators and a bright bicycle symbol are already built into the system, although apparently the app allows for custom designs (which could be a LOT of fun).

    Cyclee is currently only a "concept design", which has been shortlisted at Red Dot Awards, meaning it'll probably only get made if it wins.

    Fingers crossed!

    Cyclee allows you to design your own symbols using the app and syncs wirelessly.Cyclee allows you to design your own symbols using the app and syncs wirelessly.

  • #ThePowerOfMakeup - Campaign Says 'Stop Shaming Women For Having Fun'

    Women should be alllowed to do what they want with their faces....basically.

    There have been so many hashtag campaigns of late that we aren't even sure we can keep up.

    #ThePowerOfMakeup trend is currently spreading across Europe and beyond and is aimed to be something of a rebuttal to the #NoMakeup selfie that we saw so many celebrities take part in a while ago.

    [Nikkie Tutorials / Instagram][Nikkie Tutorials / Instagram]

    The premise of this particular campaign is fairly lightweight stuff, but that doesn't mean it isn't an easy stance to get behind.

    The idea being that just because we should be encouraging women to feel beautiful and confident in their own skin, doesn't mean we should be shaming the women who like to dress up, wear makeup and be glam.

    Because at the end of the day, according to these women, makeup doesn't mean you're ashamed and you're covering something up, or even that you're trying to look your prettiest in order to impress a romantic interest.

    Sometimes, makeup can just be a fun thing to do!

    And if it makes you feel better and helps you leave the house on bad days, so much the better!

  • Gin Is Healthy! Let's Drink All The Gin

    From traditional cures to antioxidants, gin should be your new favourite alcoholic drink

    We've all heard a glass of red wine is actually good for you, but what about when you fancy something lighter? A spirit perhaps?

    Well, apparently, the humble gin has as a few health benefits of its own, so if you're after a healthy-ish alcoholic tipple, the English fave is the one to go for.[Giphy][Giphy]

    1. It's Botanical

    So there's lots of lovely herbal ingredients that gin-makers infuse the spirit with to give it unique flavours. Herbs such as corriander, lemongrass and black pepper are used, all with their own individual health benefits.

    2. It's A Low Calorie Option

    If you're watching your weight, gin is the best spirit to go for as it's the lowest in calories. It also contains digestive enzymes which rev up your system and prevents you bloating. Just go easy on the mixers as they're packed with sugar.[REX][REX]

    3. It's Anti-Inflammatory

    Gin-soaked raisins have been used to treat conditions such as arthritis as the juniper found in the gin works to reduce inflammation in the body.

    But don't feel downhearted. There are some truly great reasons why you not being at Glastonbury means you are very much winning at life.

    1. When it rains on the first day and those hilarious lads decide to mud wrestle for the bants. Everyone they rub up against while muddy will be caked for the rest of the week. Nice one, guys.

    2. When it rains so, so much that your mid-calf wellies aren't tall enough to keep the actual s*** out when you walk past the portaloos. Squelchy.

    3. When you wake up after a heavy night and realise your tentmate has done an actual poo in the actual tent. (True story.)Did we take a wrong turn? [REX]Did we take a wrong turn? [REX]
