It's a new week so here's our list of treats for you to get your hands on

Diana Vreeland: The eye has to travel

Before Anna Wintour, there was Diana Vreeland....

After working at both Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, Diana Vreeland was the highly influential editor who ruled the fashion world from the 20s through to the 60s.

Lisa Immordino Vreeland has created this amazing documentary about her much loved grandmother-in-law which explores the high drama of her career.

Fashion heavyweights such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Anna Sui, Calvin Klein and Manolo Blahnik are all on hand to share their thoughts on why Diana became the epitome of chic, and revolutionised fashion as a celebration of creativity.

The documentary is out now and every fashionista should learn about the life of the woman who first put a picture of a bikini in a magazine!



Kristina Train – Dark Black

We fell under Kristina Train's spell after hearing her haunting vocals on the single, Dream of Me.

The 30 year old singer originally lived across the pond in the US but she moved to London last year to begin work on her debut EP, Dream of Me.

We think Kristina sounds like a dark, broody Adele meets Emeli Sande and we're totes addicted to her old school sound.

We have had the songs like I Wanna Live In LA on repeat and we have a feeling her album Dark Black will be your choice of listening on a chilled out Sunday.



Joyful Noise

Oscar nominees Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah star in Joyful Noise, a funny and inspirational story of music, hope and love.

Set in a small American town where one church choir are trying their best to win the National Joyful Noise Competition to lift the town's spirits.

The choir sings in harmony, but the feuding between its two leading ladies threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, stubbornly wants to stick with their traditional style, while her fiery rival thinks it's old and tired.

This is a fun watch just to hear Dolly Parton singing Chris Brown. Yes you read that right!
