Once upon a time corduroy would have only been reserved for country folk and geography teachers but fast forward to Autumn 2018 and the biggest designers and fashion influencers are dripping in it.

So I think I’ll start with what the Hell I am doing standing in a pharmacy with Dani looking at menopause vitamins at the age of 42. I kid you not it was like an out-of-body experience.

True-crime series The Staircase is the culmination of 16 years' worth of work for filmmaker Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. This series tells the story of Michael Peterson, a novelist living in North Carolina who was put on trial for the murder of his wife Kathleen.

The trial that followed was full of twists and kooky theories.
This is a witty compelling collection of stories from the author of The American Wife. The theme that unites these stories is how even the cleverest people tend to misread others, and how much we all deceive ourselves.

Lala Lala is a Chicago-based indie rock band fronted by songwriter and vocalist Lillie West. They’re now releasing their second album, The Lamb.
