Last week, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby told those preparing for Lent to give up cynicism. Here are some things we’re going to try and do: • Rein in the number of times we check our phone: every 30 seconds is too much, we’re aiming for at least every 45. • Stop apologising for things unnecessarily: sorry, but I think you’ll find you bashed into me… • Stop worrying that everyone else is doing better than us; they think we’re doing better than them. • And, in the spirit of Welby’s message, enter debates with a more open mind: it’s time we stopped all the fist-shaking and name-calling and started listening to each other.…

chart of lust

1 UP NATASHA LYONNE For Russian Doll, Netflix. We’ve done her before, for exactly this reason, but at that juncture, we hadn’t watched the full series. Now we have: we have no choice but to do her again. 2. NEW IN LIZZO Rising rapper super star, who just released the artwork for the cover of her forthcoming album, and she is nekkid. 3. UP ERIC BANA Terrifying in Dirty John, the TV adaptation of the podcast investigation of a true crime – but hot, and he’s only acting, so our lust is OK (we think).* 4. NON-MOVER LAURA KUENSSBERG’S COATS A new conspiracy theory posits she’s communicating subliminal Brexitrelated messages through them, while appearing on the news. Seems credible. 5 UP ROBERT SHEEHAN Formerly the one who couldn’t die on Misfits, now, a louche drug-addicted superhero with a penchant for eyeliner in The Umbrella…

New Thing and Everyone’s Doing It. It involves breaking your day into tiny time slots and allocating small tasks to each. Micro schedulers say it makes them feel more in control and ‘less like they’re constantly failing’, which is odd, because just looking at a sample micro schedule (7am: wake up. 7.10am: catch up on news. 7.15am: boil kettle for tea. 7.16am: check emails while kettle boils. 7.16am and 12s: wipe down sides while kettle is still boiling) made me feel ‘panicked’ and ‘like I was going to have a migraine’. After that passed, I realised micro schedulers are wrong. The secret to a full and joyous life is the exact opposite of micro scheduling. Instead of having lots of things to do and tiny times in which to do…

1 meghan dips into her old life

AFTER MARRYING into the royal family nine months ago, it was time for Meghan Markle to enjoy a break from her new life – with a blast from her old one. Last week, the Duchess of Sussex flew to New York on a private jet for a five-day break culminating with a baby shower to outdo any royal or A-list one before it. The event was organised by Serena Williams (who scouted some of the city’s top hotels in the weeks leading up to the event) and Amal Clooney (who paid for the private jet and travelled back to the UK with Meghan). The duchess and friends celebrated the impending arrival of ‘baby Sussex’ at the £58,000-a-night penthouse suite of The Mark hotel (Meghan had arrived in the city three days…

2 london says it loud

IN THESE UNCERTAIN times, what with the chaos that is Brexit, politics in freefall and businesses not knowing whether they’re coming or going, you might imagine that fashion designers would play it safe, with nice, polite collections full of deeply wearable, if slightly dull, clothes. Well, you’d be wrong. Last week, designers came out fighting, in a way that was startling even by London standards. Whether it was the fashion equivalent of a big ‘F*** You’ to the political powers who hold the key to the future of their businesses, a reflection of our tumultuous times, or simply designers striding off in a new direction, their sense of rebellion was palpable. The upshot for you is that these collections will change the way you dress. Forget athleisure. Forget hoodies and trainers.…
