From the super-talented woman behind east London's Rochelle Canteen (and wife of Fergus 'St John' Henderson) comes You're All Invited, a beautifully-presented compendium of easy and delicious recipes, from breakfast dishes such as spicy eggs to the perfect Sunday roast. Guaranteed to have you wanting seconds. £25, published by Fig Tree
The third Conran interiors collection for M&S is bang on. From shelving units to lamps and dining chairs, we are smitten. If we had to settle for just one piece, it would be the bamboo Kirby desk with blue metal legs. £229, marksandspencer.com
Jimmy Choo's aptly-titled 'Porno Camo' range sees burlesque silhouettes in a military print on shoes and accessories. Probably best worn not all at once. From £265, jimmychoo.com
Get roped in
Aram Store introduces an exclusive range of contemporary rugs from the fabulous fashion and design studio Eley Kishimoto. There are various bold colourways to choose from – such as the dreamy rope design – and each is hand-tufted. Frankly, they're far too nice to stand on. From £850, aram.co.uk
Behind the scenes
Theatre of War collates 7,000 largely unseen images from Cecil Beaton's lesser-known portfolio for the Ministry of Information during the Second World War, documenting people's lives at a time of conflict. From Thursday, Imperial War Museum, iwm.org.uk
It's a tongue-twister of a title, but then Kristjana S Williams, the artist behind Anachroquarianism, is adept at twisting things, here creating imaginary creatures from classic natural history imagery. Prints from £85, Shapero Rare Books, shapero.com
