Himalayan salt lamps

Unpredictable and unstoppable rise, but a lovely glow all the same

Anjelica Huston

Indiscreet interview honesty in an era lacking authenticity 

Sea Sessions

Sigrid, Two Door Cinema Club, Dermot Kennedy and more heading to Bundoran in June

What’s Not

Swiftian pastels

Taylor Swift’s new ME! video is the death-knell for muted palates

Likes

Instagram is trialling hiding “Like” counts

Madonna meanness

Leave her alone! Maybe the next single will be better?

Doop

Goop-like actives for dudes, as in Dorsey diets, ice baths and silent meditation

Bike lane bumbling

How is it so hard to have segregated bike lanes?
