Watch
Unorthodox, Netflix


A gripping four-part drama, inspired by Deborah Feldman’s 2012 memoir, Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots. Both gripping and moving, it's based on a young woman born and raised in Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidic Jewish community who runs away to Germany to escape her marriage. Shira Haas' protagonist performance is brilliant, and once you've binge-watched the entire series in a matter of hours, make sure you follow up with their mini-documentary, Making Unorthodox.




Eat
Gingr Kitchen's Sweet Potato Based Pizza


I've definitely been experimenting more in the kitchen now I've found myself with more time at home. Must thank my friend Alana for sharing this Gingr Kitchen recipe with me. Although I'm ordinarily a bit sceptical of food that's packaged up as a 'pizza', this is totally different. Delighted that I gave this a go, it was delicious and unlike anything I've ever made before.

Do you have a working from home alter-ego?
Lorraine Candy's Sunday Times Style Editor's Letter


This article was widely shared by us as we adored Lorraine's dedication to her WFH alter-ego, Gloria, complete with 1970s kaftans and huge sunglasses. The complete opposite of her usual polished look. We're feeling inspired to float around our homes in our Livia Kaftan, just need to decide on a new name.

Listen

Table Manners with Jessie & Lennie Ware 
featuring Nick Grimshaw

A brilliant podcast at the best of times, but I LOVED this episode, their first lockdown episode via Zoom. Nick is hilarious and I related to so much of what he says...especially the eating all the biscuits part!





Wear
Statement Earrings

These have become my daily pick-me-up and Zoom armour. I'm wearing a selection of oversized earrings which I often keep for special occasions. Some people swear by a red lipstick, this is my equivalent. It's amazing how good they make me feel even just thrown on with a white t-shirt and my oldest Levi's jeans.

Do
#MakeAMealOfIt with Laura Jackson

Love this # created by Laura Jackson, encouraging everyone to make an occasion of sitting down together for a meal. Lay the table, light a candle, do it all properly and savour the memories you're making at home.
