So it's the last weekend before payday, which means that big-scale weekend plans are probably out of the question. If you're stuck for cheap activities for the coming two days, spare yourself the boredom of sorting out your wardrobe and take a look at these ideas.
And no, not just on the Daily Mail sidebar of shame. House of Cards series two premiered this week on Netflix (check out its one-month free trial), My Mad Fat Diary (pictured), has just started on 4oD, and episode two is exclusively available online – free, and YouTube has started rolling out easier playlist viewers (essentially, you can watch them right from the guide) – which makes noodling between cat LOLz and Pharrell vids super simps.

The Giles show at LFW last week saw Cara and co wear massive knitted beanies by brilliant knitwear company Wool & The Gang. Although the knit-your-own kit for the Giles EEK! beanie comes in at £40 (eek indeed), the crew has beanie knitting patterns for just £10. Score. Alternatively, make like Georgia Jagger on the Rag & Bone catwalk and customise your winter bomber with your name – just pop to an unashamedly brilliant nan store like Hobbycraft to buy the letters, which should cost from about 50p each.
It's the Glasgow Film Festival, where you can check out all kinds of flicks, from new movies including The Grand Budapest Hotel to old classics like the ultra-stylish In the Mood for Love (£8.50, £6.50 students and £4.50 for under-21s). There's a retrospective of Ossie Clark, the incredible 60s/70s designer (his clothes pictured on actress Ali McGraw) taking place at the Manchester Art Gallery this weekend (free – but Google him if you can't go), and in London, you can check out the Fashion & Gardens exhibition at the Garden Museum – see the article in February's Vogue, which brilliantly talks about fashion's love-in with florals, including Cheryl Cole's bum tattoo (£7.50 adults, £3 students).
