Fashion: Uniqlo turns over a new leaf

British designer Orla Kiely's colourful stem prints have become part of the fashion vernacular, whether on umbrellas, tote bags or even doormats. And now, thanks to a second collaboration with high-street heroes Uniqlo, you can adorn yourself with them, too. Choose from T-shirts, hoodies, scarves and dresses and bloom in style. Uniqlo.co.uk

Face to watch: Zebra Katz

The NYC rapper-cum-fashion-world- favourite made some noise with menacingly minimalist debut single "Ima Read" and new track "W8WTF" is equally fierce. Catch him supporting Azealia Banks on her autumn UK tour

Lexpionage: Osboorne, vb.

Heckling a politician at a major international competition as s/he is introduced at a medal ceremony, partic. used when said member of Parliament has introduced laws perceived to be detrimental to competitors

App watch: Teatime

Don't leave your cuppa to chance with this possibly fractionally over-zealous app, which helps you manage your work "tea group". Allowing you to set a tea-break alarm and store details of how each group member takes their brew, it will also select one person each time to be the designated tea-maker. From iTunes store, free

1. Autumn is my season

2. Girls: Just seen a very hot boy. He's on Farringdon Road. Go! Boys: Just seen a very hot boy. He's on Farringdon Road. Go! #liberal

3. Isaac Hayes has died #AsTrueNowAsIt WasThen

4. How scary but brilliant would it be if a bear bit yr hand, dragged you 20 ft, then left you alone? Like a cabbie having Bowie in his taxi.

On the radar: Because some things are worth getting excited about…

Thought the pop-up restaurant concept had no distance left to run? Then prepare to be startled by comic Simon Munnery's anti-eatery, opening for service in London after two years at the Edinburgh Festival. 8-28 October, sohotheatre.com
