  • I know I keep banging on about the heatwave, and which dresses and fabrics to wear when it’s hot, but well anything that can make it bearable if you’re not lucky enough to be lying by a pool is good in my books.

    Which brings me to the £5 accessory that is flying off the shelves at the moment, and it’s pretty unexpected: a paper fan. This Accessorize one has an Amalfi print reminiscent of holidays.

    When I was little, I remember my grandma using hers on the go, and I always thought it was very glamorous, albeit a little old fashioned.

    Now they’re back in spectacular fashion, and I, along with the rest of the country it seems, am here for it.

    It’s lightweight and not as noisy as a portable fan, so you can easily carry it around with you. And there are so many pretty prints out there that it doubles up as a great fashion accessory.

    Because there’s nothing wrong with looking nice in the heat now is there?
