Yes to . . . cacti, the lazy person’s houseplant solution

 

What’s Hot

Far-flung festivals

The xx’s Night + Day in Skógafoss, Iceland; Love International in Tisno, Croatia; Flow Festival in Helsinki.

Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid’s Tale TV series (starting Sunday May 28th on Channel 4) is scary and a bit too relevant.

Cacti

The lazy person’s houseplant solution.

Fellas in florals

On shorts and shirts everywhere.

Fish burger

As perfected by the Fish Shop’s wine bar on Benburb Street in Dublin.

‘True Care’

Less than a year after James Vincent McMorrow’s excellent album We Move, he’s released this new one.

What’s Not

Dinner driving

If you’re to believe Danny Healy-Rae (we don’t), a big meal is as dangerous as alcohol in causing car accidents.

A general election

We’d prefer a bit of quiet, actually.

Laptops as carry-on

The in-flight ban is encroaching.

Avocado toast

Has overtaken the flat white as shorthand for people giving out about millennials.

‘Scandal’

Season seven will be the show’s final one, so get your Olivia Pope fix now.

High-maintenance weddings

Think about Pippa Middleton, and then do the opposite. Your guests will thank you.
