Fashion: Get your dancing shoes on
The vogue for retro high-top trainers shows no sign of abating and Reebok is the master of the sneakerhead style. The new Dance trainer has been formulated for Zumba and studio work-outs but will walk just as well on pavements to give you a stage-tastic spring in your step. £60, very.co.uk
Face to watch: Laura Mvula
The Birmingham singer was a nominee for this year's Brits Critics' Choice award for new talent, but her orchestral soul is more offbeat than such recognition might suggest. Debut album Sing to the Moon is out on 4 March
Lexpionage: Crapport, n.

App watch: Waze
in the world of free voice-enabled satnavs, Google Maps is king. But give Waze a whirl. It monitors user movements and allows you to update traffic status: real-time data (up to a point) sees journey times and routes are altered accordingly. It's not all great: keep an eye on route selection. Otherwise, it's impressive.
