WITH this joyously warm weather, we’re keen to refresh our summer wardrobe – and our skincare regime.
Today’s lust-worthy picks include a refreshing cleanser perfect for tackling grease left behind by sun cream, and a gorgeous Kate Spade watch guaranteed to go with any outfit…
Save your skin
For people who struggle with oily, combination skin, this facial wash is a total game changer – especially if you’re off somewhere hot on hols.
It’s blended with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water and eliminates impurities and excess sebum from the skin, leaving it feeling squeaky clean, refreshed and blemish-free, without drying it out.

Ace of Spade
We love this two-tone steel and rose gold-plated wrist watch from Kate Spade – and even better, it’s currently on offer at online retailer Watchshop.
Not only is it universally flattering, it’s also water resistant up to 30 metres – which means it isn’t the end of the world if you end up taking a late-night dip in the pool on holiday…

A stylish shopper is a must-have summer accessory – especially when it comes to trips to the beach and picnics in the park.
We love the new eco-friendly range from Claribel. In a nod to the brand’s Peruvian heritage, the designs are inspired by the country’s landscape – and the vibrant colours are to “dye” for (see what we did there?).

Mirror mirror on the wall…
Call us vain, but we don’t think you can have too many mirrors in your home – and we love this antique-gold number from Oliver Bonas.
The metal linked hanging chain and hexagon shape gives it an ultra modern feel, perfect for a contemporary living room or bedroom. Go on, you won’t look back…

Why have run-of-the-mill straighteners when you can have GOLD? We adore these smooth and sleek rose gold straighteners from GHD.
These glimmering stylers are the ultimate in luxurious hair care, and heat up to 185°C in just 25 seconds. Even better, they come in a stylish matching heat-resistant bag – perfect for packing away into your suitcase.

We’re a huge fan of this bakery (make ours a Curly Whirly) – and now you can bake their delicious cakes for yourself.
This classy cookbook from the 20-year-old family-run Konditor & Cook features 60 easy to follow recipes, including the secret ingredients in their popular Black Velvet Cupcakes and Boston Brownies. We’re literally drooling at the mention of them.
