2. Listen to... Kanye West
In the week that Kanye West became a father (of one we might add, not the world), why not have a little listen to his God-complex referencing new album, Yeezus. Amen to that.
3. Read... Revenge Wears Prada
Little did Lauren Weisberger know that when she penned her first novel, The Devil Wears Prada inspired by her time as Anna Wintour’s assistant at Vogue, it would become a global bestseller and be made into a blockbuster movie starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep. Ten years on comes the sequel, Revenge Wears Prada, where we find Andy happily working alongside her former nemesis Emily but have the pair really escaped the evil clutches of Miranda Priestly? What do you think?!
4. Watch... World War Z
Brad Pitt’s long awaited zombie movie hits cinemas in the UK today. Based on the 2006 novel by Max Brooks a retired United Nations employee travels the globe while battling a pandemic of flesh-eating monsters threatening the very existence of humanity. Brad Pitt saving the world – pass us the popcorn!

5. Go to... a country house party
If the idea of squelching around a muddy field trying to get near the stage to see a band you sort of like is your idea of hell then why not pay a visit to [a target="_blank" href="http://www.wyndstock.com/">Wyndstock[/a]. Dubbed the ultimate anti-festival, this lavish country house party at Norfolk’s Houghton Hall begins in the daytime with literary talks, games on the lawn alongside afternoon tea and fizz (natch). The evening heats up with cocktails and a candlelit dinner followed by live music, DJ’s and dancing ‘til dawn at the secret bar in the woods. How very civilised!
21-23 June, Wyndstock, Houghton Hall, Norfolk
