    1. Watch Vogue UK's "Inside the Wardrobe".

    "I am an A-grade snooper, so I am obsessed with UK Vogue's 'Inside the Wardrobe' series," says Ailbhe. "Each episode is about five minutes long and takes you into the wardrobes of UK style-setters and superstars. I love Lily Allen's wardrobe tour (so much Chanel!), and the two Vogue editors featured also have killer style. Once you've exhausted the wardrobe series, tuck into 'What's in the Bag' with Victoria Beckham's handbag. Perfect for watching with a cup of tea at your desk."

    Watch it on YouTube.

    Or catch Easy on Netflix.

    2. Read Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo.


    I am deep into this epic new release as we speak. The follow-up to last year's Six of Crows, set in the same universe as the Grisha trilogy, this fantasy heist novel is a pacy, action-packed thriller that will most definitely leave you going: WHAT DO YOU MEAN THIS WON'T BE A TRILOGY?

    If that's not your jam, how about this brilliant and thoughtful essay?

    3. Listen to Young as the Morning Old as the Sea by Passenger.

    This chill and charming new album from Passenger is the perfect soundtrack for the transition from summer to autumn. With tracks both moody and chipper, but never overbearing, it's perfect for a lazy morning lie in.

    Listen on Spotify.

    Or check out Maria Bamford's new stand-up album, 20%. "I haven't even heard it yet but it's taking all my self-control not to immediately stop working, lie on the floor, and listen to it three times through," says Lyle.

    4. Play Plague Inc.

    Plague Inc. isn't the App Store's top paid game for no reason. For just 79p, you get clever, engrossing, and endless fun in this apocalyptic strategy game. It's also perfect for when you hit your dealing-with-people limit for the week, since instead saving humanity, you are the plague, out to destroy.

    Get it for iOS and Android.

    For something a little chiller, try Two Dots.

    5. Cook these sour cream and onion cheese sticks.
