The ultimate weekend wish list.
What better time is there to explore all the latest stylish launches and new happenings than at the weekend?
So, without further adieu allow us to introduce: hot list. Whether it’s some much-needed pampering, a quick interiors update or a wardrobe refresh, weekends are all about indulging in some ‘me-time’.
Here at Marie Claire HQ we’re constantly seeking out secret sales, new brands, exclusive beauty treatments and cool coffee table books. We also love updating our home with a cool new piece of pottery, art or a delicious new candle.
We’ve rounded-up all the coolest things to do, see and buy this week. There are new store openings, new fashion brands, A-list collaborations, grooming updates and generally gorgeous and useful things to know so that your downtime is as stylish as you.
This week, we see treats from several of the best brands out there. Jo Malone who have added an exfoliating body scrub which polishes and cleanses the skin (it comes in the classic Lime Basil & Mandarin, Pomegrante Noir and Geranium Walnut plus the suitcase brand that everyone is talking about, Away Luggage has amassed a celebrity following that includes Jessica Alba and Emily Ratajkowski to name but a few. Diesel’s launches their Denim Lab and the fashion brand MCM has dropped their first set of fragrances which are just to-die-for.
We’ve also stumbled across some dreamy dresses. One comes with a strong ethical message, and the other is the perfect office-to-party piece. And the perfect fragrance from Frederic Malle, the grand master of the fragrance world.
