Here she comes, Thierry Ennui...

What goes on inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl?

theguardian.com — Like Yves Klein's deep, uncomfortable blue, Pixar should patent the particular happysadness you feel when you emerge from seeing its films. The teary wonder at nature and humanity that comes from watching anthropomorphised lamps fall in love and causes one to skip from the cinema, leaping over a puddle of yeah-that-was-definitely-vomit, to shrug regretfully at the guy who failed to nick your wallet outside Wasabi, and to fall asleep with a magical sigh, and to dream.

Getting into the party spirit

theguardian.com — It was when I reached up to tie the balloons to our front door that the very weight of them made me sit down. It was Saturday, and it was the baby's first birthday.

Bake Off’s Mel and Sue: It’s just a show about cakes - but it means a lot to people

theguardian.com — The sun always shines in the world of The Great British Bake Off, an Arcadian land where the currency is compliments, innuendo and pie. It is an unseasonably hot day when I visit Mel Giedroyc, Sue Perkins, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood on the set of the sixth series of the biggest programme in Britain, and the tent smells of sugary sweat.

Bake Off’s Paul and Mary: We just work in a tent, judging bread

theguardian.com — After their portraits have been taken, Paul and Mary settle beside each other on Mel and Sue's vacated sofa, and Paul takes out his phone. Mary, with a cup of tea and a hot water bottle, fills the silence with polite small talk, while he scrolls intently.

Scared of summer? You should be…

theguardian.com — As summer broke, Paris Hilton boarded a small plane for an aerial tour of Dubai. Can you imagine anything hotter? Of course, you and I have experienced heat, too, this heat that feels like you're standing in a wind tunnel of all your past humiliations, farting past you one by one.

The many lives of Phillip Toledano - in pictures

theguardian.com — We all wonder what the future holds, but Phillip Toledano took it a step further. He created a series of startling self-portraits in which he imagined how he might look in years to come Maybe by Phillip Toledano is published by Dewi Lewis at £30.

Why is there always a backlash against feminist stars?

theguardian.com — A group of men sit round a table and make one of the most memorable bits of TV I've seen. In a perfect remake of 12 Angry Men, Paul Giamatti, Jeff Goldblum, and Dennis Quaid argue furiously across an episode of Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer, their shirts becoming increasingly rumpled.

Observer Ethical Awards 2015 winners: Festival of Thrift

theguardian.com — Last year 40,000 people descended on Darlington for the Festival of Thrift - an anarchic weekend of make do and mend, with added nail art. "Thrift encompasses lots of different attitudes," says director Stella Hall. "From sustainable enterprise all the way down to saving pennies. It's about a respect for materials, and for the planet.

What Glastonbury really means

theguardian.com — Like fireworks and nature, the Glastonbury festival can be seen as a metaphor for anything. As you read this, all my best friends are groin-deep in the emotional effluvia of the closing day of the festival, miles away from roads, baths, real life.

What is the price of heartbreak?

theguardian.com — I read details of the world's biggest divorce with a mixture of agony and awe, and then I read it again. Natalia Potanina has refused husband Vladimir's £32m offer, insisting that Russia's richest man (who, after a 30-year marriage is leaving her and their children for his pregnant employee) should give her half of his £10bn fortune.
