Disclaimer: This is from the men’s section. But, to be perfectly honest, it’ll look just as good on you.
We fell in love with Seed To Skin the moment we first heard about it. The ingredients are cultivated and formulations created on-site in Tuscany, which is also a villa / five-star boutique, retreat, farm and culinary school.
The products themselves are pretty amazing too, especially this super active serum spray bursting with the best ingredients from Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin A and Damask Rose Extract which all penetrate deep into the skin for maximum results.
Just look at the gorgeous pleats on this dress.
Daou jewellery has just dropped exclusively to Liberty London and we’re seriously into the graphic, structured but delicate fine jewellery, particularly this Gold structured ring. J’adore.
We love the vintage-inspired designs by way of Adelina Casini.
If you’re after cool and unique pieces for you home, look no further.
We love the handcrafted feel.

Missoma’s new sketch tool lets you personalise jewellery with everything from symbols to text and hand drawings. The perfect present for yourself or others.
Pretty and it’ll stand out amongst all the black suitcases, bonus.
This isn’t your average SPF cream: its fine texture contains pigments to enhance your skin’s complexion and reduce the appearance of blemishes. A high definition illuminator in a tube if you will.
The only way to do picnics this summer.
To celebrate the late Elio Fiorucci’s birthday, Fiorucci have collaborated with WWF, to create a limited edition t-shirt, with 20% of the proceeds of the sale going to WWF.
The perfect addition to your festival wardrobe.
You’ve probably been to the fabulous rooftop at Boundary before, but if like me, you’d never set foot downstairs before, you really ought to. The downstairs is home to French bar and bistro TraTra, a seriously cool and stylish basement space, which when we arrived on Sunday was bustling with a Jazz band on stage.
The Sunday menu, created by award-winning chef and writer Stéphane Reynaud, is described as a Feasting Menu, and with so much hyperbole these days it was easy to overlook the statement, so we took no notice. But, seriously you’ll want to make sure you come prepared because that’s exactly what it is – a feast!
You start the journey off with a generous charcuterie board, side salad and rich and extremely satisfying Croque Monsieur. For the main, choose from Lamb, Beef, Octopus or Asparagus and roasted aubergine. My dining partner and I went for the Lamb, which was ceremoniously served up by the super attentive staff, and as it was, slow-cooked for seven hours, melted in the mouth. Did I mention the cauliflower cheese gratin? Because, I’ve been thinking about it everyday since I had it. It’s bloody divine.
Oh, and all of this was washed down with some seriously good French fizz – bottomless. If you have room, do try a desert. The Strawberry vacherin is as divine as it is Instagrammable.
The Sunday Feasting lunch is priced at £30 per person and £45 with the bottomless Fixx.
To celebrate fashion’s most popular flower, Bloom & Wild have partnered with Mother of Pearl on a stunning new peony bouquet series. The collaboration pairs three playful arrangements with pop-art patterned letterboxes to mark the season of British peonies. Their delivery boxes are also privy to the blossom-filled collaboration, decked out in a unique Mother of Pearl print that dare to be thrown away.
The Pauletta, Kensie and Amber bouquets each exude their own floral and colour symbolism and launch on are available through to July on Bloomandwild.com, priced from £33- £50.
From noon on Friday 15th June through to 5:30pm Sunday 17th June, you’ll be able to shop design-led homeware at pelican story’s pop-up shop. Held at Kreative House in Hackney, pelican story is home to creatively sourced products from around the world that deliver beauty and functionality to any room.
It’s not hard to see why this gorgeous little trunk has been flying off the shelves – it’s just divine. We also think that it’s pretty much suitable for every event and you can always keep it fresh with a different coloured insert. Win / Win really.
It’ll be summer soon, we’re sure of it. Anyway, when it’s here you’ll want a new dress and this gorgeous piece by way of Dandy & Brooks is the perfect one.
Is this the perfect summer scent? Quite possibly. Orange Butterflies by Jo Loves is a crisp (neroli), fresh (orange blossom) and zingy (mandarin) and is the latest addition to our fragrance wardrobe.
It’s going to be a sunny bank holiday weekend so there’s no better time than the present really.
Head straight to Koibird at 62 Marylebone Lane for the ultimate holiday designer wardrobe, beautiful curated by Belma Gaudio to include everything from shell jewellery to basket bags. The pink store is pure Instagram heaven. It’s open until the end of July.
