Here are Spanish chef David Montero Miguel’s (@ricepaella) tricks for the perfect paella: use fresh ingredients, take your time, give it a lot of love and triple sauté the tomatoes. “When I’m cooking, I feel as if my body were just another ingredient in the recipe,” says the former waiter-turned-professional chef, who is based in Valencia. “I let go and improvise with different ingredients and steps. In general, I just feel happy.” Today, David leads cooking workshops where foodies can learn new recipes and disconnect from their daily routine in the kitchen.

"Women have always been a part of punk and hardcore, but we've always had to fight for space and recognition. And while that hasn't completely changed, I think in the past few years, more women are getting the recognition they deserve, and then inspiring other women. There's still a long way to go before it's even remotely equal, but I've definitely felt a change. It's very important to me to document people involved in punk and hardcore who have been underrepresented in the past. I can think of so many women who have been forgotten by history — it's heartbreaking. In twenty years, if someone wants to know what hardcore was like in the US in 2017, they're going to see a room full of women participating and supporting each other. That's what I want to preserve." —photojournalist Angela Owens (@angelaowens) Check out our Instagram story to see more of Angela’s work. Photo by @angelaowens

Hello, world! It’s time for today’s #WeeklyFluff. BB (@birdbee0705) is a Japanese white-eye bird who was rescued off the streets of Taipei, Taiwan, when she was just a baby. True to her nickname “Princess,” BB loves getting pampered — especially when she’s massaged or brushed. “We don’t cage her, so she can fly around in our house all day,” explains BB’s human. “No matter which room we go to in our house, she always follows us like a tiny flying puppy.” Video by @birdbee0705


When Elisa Detrez, one-half of @bestjobers, says hers is the best job in the world, she means it literally. Description? Stargazing in Jordan, swinging in hammocks over sugar-white sand in the Bahamas, exploring the Technicolor markets of India, heli-skiing in a Swiss snow globe. Requirements? “Being curious, open-minded and adaptable,” says Elisa, a 32-year-old former web marketer from France, who snagged the job of her dreams in a 2013 contest. Out of the thousands of applicants competing for one of seven “Best Jobs in the World” with Tourism Australia, Elisa won — she and her partner Max Coquard were assigned to live and travel around Queensland and write a blog for six months. When the adventure ended, neither wanted to go home. “Everyone kept asking us how we could possibly return to a ‘normal life,’” says Elisa, who today with Max, shares tips and details from travels around the globe. “We realized this could be our new life.” 🌏 Photo by @bestjobers
