1) Wimbledon. Ah, how we love you. Points of interest include Rafa Nadal breaking our hearts in a five set thriller, Andy Murray calling out a sexist remark at his post-match press conference (male player, FYI), and Johanna Konta becoming the first British woman to make it into the semis since goodness knows when. Also, Olivia Palermo, Mary Berry and Alexa Chung brought their fash A game (set and match).

2) Beyoncé’s baby names reveal. So Rumi and Sir Carter it is then. And a totally chill I-just-woke-up-like-this Insta to go with it as well. Obviously.

3) The post-holiday blues. I may have missed a flight, had to do an 18 hour-stopover, slept in an airport, had my baggage go missing for FOUR ENTIRE DAYS and burst into tears when I was told my hotel room had been cancelled (thankfully, it wasn’t) but my only thought now is… WHEN’S THE NEXT ONE?

4) Donald Trump… being Donald Trump. We don’t even know why we bother to get irked about it anymore as it’s so tediously predictable, but telling French First Lady Brigitte Macron that she was in “great shape” was a new all-time low. Le sigh.

5) DIY dilemmas. Should we or should we not purchase a green velvet sofa. Answers on a postcard please…
