Cool culture, Zara Home’s new collection and easy meals
Aisling Bea, Jia Tolentino and Alison Brie: delightful. Recipe boxes and a delicious new homeware range? We’re never leaving the house.

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means: we’ve got some white-hot cultural tips for your perusal. Stylist Loves’ deputy editor Moya recommends staying firmly on your sofa this Thursday evening to watch the first episode of This Way Up (10pm, Channel 4), a sharp new sitcom starring Sharon Horgan and Aisling Bea (who you can also see at Stylist Live LUXE on 9 November).

“Bea plays Aine, a foreign language school worker trying to get back to ‘normality’ after a stint in rehab for a nervous breakdown, while Horgan – who I’ve long adored for her tart humour and excellent hair – plays her watchful, neurotic older sister Shona,” says Moya. “Even if you don’t have a sister (I don’t), you’ll fall in love with Aine and Shona’s protective, piss-taking relationship.”

On the books front, Stylist contributor Hannah-Rose is currently submerged in Trick Mirror, the debut non-fiction collection by New Yorker staff writer Jia Tolentino (out Thursday, £14.99, Fourth Estate). “Whenever a new Tolentino essay is published online, I click so hard I get RSI in my index finger,” Hannah-Rose says. “Trick Mirror explores how to be a person in the slippery world of the internet – and it’s predictably searing and thought-provoking.”

And Stylist Loves editor Kat could spontaneously combust with excitement this week, because Glow returns to Netflix on Friday. “The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are in Las Vegas, Geena Davis has joined the cast, and the outfits are WILD. Pass me a hot pink spandex leotard, I’m bingeing the whole season.”

Stylist’s food editor Jenny Tregoning hunts down the subscription boxes to transform your home-cooking  

If you’ve traipsed all round Tesco and still can’t locate the nutritional yeast for your plant-based mac’n’cheese, The Vegan Larder is here to help. A monthly subscription box of store-cupboard essentials and great new snacks, it’s a game-changer for newbie vegans: past deliveries have included Eaten Alive’s brilliant smoked sriracha and Rubies In The Rubble aquafaba mayo (aka the best vegan mayo). Stylist Loves readers can get £10 off their first box with the code STYLIST10.

Other food subscription boxes that have caught my attention lately: Halal Fresh, a new recipe kit with everything you need for tasty halal-friendly dinners, and Simply Cook. I swear by these spice boxes for easy homemade curries, and they’re now available to buy individually at Waitrose. Go forth and order.

While the rest of Team Stylist muse over Zara’s next cult dress, we at Loves are going gooey over their home brand’s newest line. Zara Home has just launched a kitchen collection, and it’s filling us with a strangely wholesome lust. There’s stoneware, textiles, accessories, cookbooks and even small appliances (SMEG toasters!), but it’s the rustic wooden grater (£11.99) and artistic pestle and mortar set (from £17.99) that have really got our hearts pounding. We want to sling on this apron (£17.99) and unbox the whole lot. ● Words by Kat Poole
