Thomas Sabo x Haribo

The most fun collaboration this month comes from Thomas Sabo, who have collaborated with sweet brand Haribo to create a range of playful and colourful accessories that are bringing us nothing but Y2K vibes. Along with rings, necklaces and bracelets, there's sweet bear charms for you to create your own charm bracelet or necklace, and bear-laden huggie hoops. 

Specsavers x Barbour

New in at Specsavers is the chic collaboration with Barbour. Designed for the city street to the rural retreat, they’re inspired by Barbour's timeless country style and includes styles across men, women and sunglasses.

MAKSU

International womenswear brand MAKSU launches in the UK with its first flagship store in London and dedicated online store, offering UK customers the opportunity to shop the brand's contemporary styles, spanning across ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear.

Inspired by the Mediterranean with its vivid colours, MAKSU offers an elevated take on bohemian style with relaxed, versatile pieces for the everyday wardrobe and occasion wear dressing, including printed dresses, co-ords, feminine tailoring and blouses all crafted with intricate detail and quality fabrics sourced in Europe. 

Situated in the luxury shopping district of Mayfair, the new 23 Bruton Street store will bring a taste of Mediterranean warmth to London, providing customers the opportunity to experience the allure of MAKSU in person, offering a first-hand encounter with the brand’s artisanal craftsmanship and unique prints. Customers will also be able to immerse themselves in the brand’s relaxed lifestyle at the MAKSU Café. Located on the top floor, the café will offer the finest coffee and pastries for customers to enjoy whilst shopping.

LoveLash Growth Serum

Longer, thicker lashes are surely top of everyone's wish list, and LoveLash is the newest lash growth serum on the block that promises just that. Formulated without the addition of Prostaglandin Analogues (PGA's) or hormones, some users saw improvement in their lashes within two weeks of using the product twice a day - well worth a shot!

KIND Bag 

Kind Bag makes all of its products sustainably and ethically from 100% recycled plastic bottles originally destined for the ocean or landfill, and has repurposed over six million bottles since it launched in 2019! Not only that, the London-based business is also women-owned and women-run and release brand new designs and colourways constantly, including limited edition prints, across their products, which includes pouches, shoppers and backpacks.

Facestellar

With treatments called 'sharpen', 'glow' and 'zen', Facestellar is a welcome new face to the London beauty scene. This futuristic, robot-ship looking salon offers equally as futuristic facials using massage, beauty tools and a lot of know-how to treat the skin.

I popped in for the 'sharpen' treatment, designed to give a natural face lift with snatched jawline, defined cheekbones and tight skin. Using manual massage on the face, a steel gua sha and EMS (electrical muscle stimulation), my skin was pummelled and pulled to perfection. I left after the 45minute treatment with my cheekbones higher than ever, my skin glowing beyond and my jaw looking more defined than it has done for years.

Merrell x Sweaty Betty

When two powerhouse fitness brands join forces, you sit up and take notice. Sweaty Betty x Merrell has dropped, bringing a new limited edition collection of fitness wear to suit all needs, whether that's a hike trail, a gym session or an at-home workout. Highlights include the special edition Moab Speed 2 trainer, the latest innovation in hiking from the Merrell brand pairing the knowledge and trail insights from the best-selling hiking boot, the Merrell Moab, with the latest innovations from athletic hikers across the globe.

Spa Ceylon Sleep Intense Discovery Set

Having trouble sleeping? Spa Ceylon's created the Sleep Discovery Set to help you drift off into a peaceful slumber. Infused with precious Ayurveda WonderHerbs & pure Aromatic Essential Oils, the kit includes a Sleep Mist, Balm, Body Cleanser and Body Elixir to balance the chakras and help you unwind.

Skechers Summer Collection with Myleene Klass

These cute Skechers are the latest to get the seal of approval from Myleene Klass, who wears the style in the brand's latest campaign. The Skechers Hands Free Slip-ins®: Ultra Flex 3.0 - Brilliant Path are created with comfort in mind. Designed with Skechers' exclusive Heel Pillow™, this style features a Stretch Fit® engineered knit upper with deco laces, plus a cushioned Skechers Air-Cooled Memory Foam® insole.

Some can be personalised or include a special message. There's also pearl pieces and stunning accessories for brides to wear on their big day too - well worth a browse.

Ella & Jo Invisible SPF30 Facial Mist

Set to make its mark in the world of sunscreen is this incredible new SPF mist from Ella & Jo. With SPF30, this refreshing facial mist is invisible, and can be layered under or over makeup to make sunscreen application so easy you can't skip it.

Tempsure FlexSure at Joney De Souza Clinic

Tempsure FlexSure is a radiofrequency device that safely and painlessly heats up tissues to increase new collagen production resulting in skin tightening.  With flex-heating deep tissue technology, FlexSure effectively targets hard-to-treat places, including underarms, inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, and buttocks. FlexSure is a radiofrequency body treatment that provides deep, even tissue heating. The peel & stick applicator curves and conforms to your body to reach those hard-to-treat areas. 

Common treatment areas include the abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs, and knees, and have been described as a gentle hot stone massage that will produce new collagen, which will tighten the skin without any needles, cuts, or bruises. Just a little gel with a little heat. Even though the treatment feels like a hot stone massage, the system is heating up tissue from the inside with an electrical current with the latest technology that slowly heats the skin resulting in increased patient comfort and better results.

OYL Speciality Mushroom Coffee

Mushroom coffee has become incredibly popular over the last few months due to its amazing health benefits and OYL coffee is leading the way in this trend. Crafted to help you focus and optimise your life, the carefully curated blend (which was years in the making and awarded Great Taste Winner in 2023), leans heavily on science and scientific research to ensure the end result is a coffee to support the busiest of lifestyles.

OYL's expert blend contains 3 x Medicinal Organic Mushrooms: Lion’s Mane, known for its nerve growth factor production; Reishi which supports a healthy immune system; and Cordyceps Militaris, used to increase energy and endurance. The overall taste is chocolatey and nutty with an earthy finish that is beautifully balanced and the packaging is planet friendly and recyclable. Big thumbs up!

SHEIN's New Island Edit

As we're edging closer towards summer, we've been on the lookout for the best new fashion collections and SHEIN's brand new Island edit is just the ticket.

The collection combines laid-back, bohemian, ready-to-wear with contemporary styles that capture the essence of Ibiza’s effortlessly cool atmosphere.
