1. Watch The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.


This complete delight dropped its third season on Netflix this weekend and it's as wackily pucnchy as ever – I'm three episodes in and I can't tell you how many ties I've paused to giggle already. This season sees some real development for Titus, and the return of John Hamm's hilariously infuriating Reverend Wayne Gary Wayne.

Watch it on Netflix.

2. Read The Island At The End of Everything by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

The second book by recent British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year winner Kiran Millwood Hargrave is as lyrical and magical as her debut, The Girl of Ink and Stars. The Island at the End of Everything follows Amihan, a young girl banished from the island where she grew up and the family who loves her.

3. Listen to My Dad Wrote a Porno.

Natayla recently discovered this absolute classic: "'My Dad Wrote A Porno' is literally that: a guy reading the erotic novel his dad has written to his friends. It’s utterly hilarious, charming, and painfully awkward. The novel is so bad that it’s good, and the commentary has had me literally laughing out loud whilst on my commute. If you’re a fan of Peep Show and Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace – humour somewhere on the “horrifically cringeworthy” and “hilariously perfect” scale, then you will love this."

4. Download rvlvr.

This is a VERY chill game. There's not timer and it's all about making things match in a super zen way. I really like to play when I'm feeling stressed because the entire goal is to put things in order and it's pretty impossible to screw it up.

Play on iOS.

5. Cook these Moroccan eggs.

I made these a few weeks ago and it was a killer brunch. Tasty and full of protein, I would honestly eat it for any meal.

Recipe here.

6. Try joining an online bookclub.

ICYMI, Pottermore recently announced it would be organising an online book club, but even if Harry Potter isn't your thing, there's plenty of ways to find reading communities online. There's Emma Watson's feminist book club, a surprising number of book clubs run by beauty companies (looking at you Lush and Soap and Glory), and lots of bloggers who run newsletter-style book clubs.
