If you haven't heard of the Chocobatch, drop what you're doing and have a look at this. Yes it's got to do with Benedict Cumberbatch. It's absolutely inspirational, which is also what Luxe Nomad founder Stephanie Chai channelled via our new series called How I Do It. We also give inspiration brownies to the T-Pain's mild but effective April Fools' prank (it's probably cooler than the one Russell Crowe got from the late Michael Jackson).

The April Fools' joke Malaysians would've really appreciated is the newly implemented GST. Sorry, it's not a joke. But if you've a shopping itch to scratch anyway, we've rounded up 50 dresses under RM200 and had a think about  what else we'd like to buy with our pay. H&M is also on a roll for the Spring/Summer season, with a campaign featuring Yuna's music out as well as an upcoming Summer collection that you need to take on your holiday (we even have something to give you ideas about that).

'Tis the week for new projects in the fashion world. Olivia Palermo has designed a tech bag you can buy from Aspinal of London, and the creatives behind the now-dissolved Marc by Marc Jacobs label are starting a label of their own, called Hillier Bartley. Up for your own project? Here's an all-white makeover for your home and a pair of ballet flats you can personalise (you can thank Charlotte Olympia for the latter).

There's always something from the movie world to get excited about and this time, James Bond, a cannibalistic dinosaur and real-life Mulan have got us ticking. In a little sadder news, goodbye Future Music Festival Asia.
