WHAT TO WATCH

SOLOS, the TV show that will make you reflect...

The new Amazon Prime show ‘Solos’ is a seven-part series that explores the idea of what it truly means to be human. Beautiful, strange, heartbreaking and hilarious, this TV show takes you on different journeys with some of the world’s most renowned actors, including Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, Uzo Aduba, Anthony Mackie, Helen Mirren and many more.  

Considering that the show has no actual plot, and has a sci-fi / black-mirror feel to it, its intent is to make you explore and reflect on life, human connections and take you on a self-discovery journey alongside the characters, allowing you to identify the definition of humanity, with all the pros and cons that come with it.

WHAT TO WEAR

Linen of course!

Who could say no to a paired back, chic and breezy outfit in summer? Comfortable and classy, linen pieces tick all the boxes! Shorts and blazer co-ords or wide leg trousers and shirts offer an all in one outfit suitable for any destination or occasion. Shop our faves now!

WHAT TO LISTEN TO

Off Menu Podcast with Ed Gamble and James Acaster

Last month saw the start of the sixth series of this award winning and delightfully daft comedy and food podcast. The premise is straightforward: a guest visits comedian hosts Ed and James at the Dream Restaurant, and the Genie Waiter (James) brings them whatever they desire. In-depth discussions about the class status of fizzy water and the morals of cheese boards ensue, along with really weird food opinions from celebrities you used to respect. Simple, silly and guaranteed to make you hungry – listen at your own risk, you will laugh out loud!

WHAT TO BUY

Summer is officially here in the UK and although SPF is just as important all year round, the hotter months mean we have to keep on top of re-applying. Dr Dennis Gross has taken the skincare industry by storm and the Lightweight Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 Sunscreen has proven popular. Suitable for all skin types and tones, as well as all ages, this oil-free SPF has been a dream to include in my routine. Cruelty-free, Vegan and Fragrance Free, why haven’t you added to your basket yet?  

WHAT TO READ

Fashionopolis by Dana Thomas

Branded as ‘fascinating and powerful’ by the New York Times, Fashionopolis highlights the harmful impacts that the fast fashion industry has on the planet and the wellbeing and exploitation of workers. The book includes interviews with activists, designers, and other industry experts who are fighting for change. If you’re looking to educate yourself on the fashion industry and want to find out ways that you can help, then this is the book for you!

WHAT TO EAT

Smoothie Bowls

We love starting a summer’s day with a smoothie bowl. They’re perfect for fuelling you up with lots of health-boosting vitamins and minerals, and of course to stay refreshed in these heatwaves! Smoothie bowls are deliciously healthy and easy to make. The key is frozen fruit, you can throw in just about anything and be completely customisable.

After you have made your smoothie and served in an aesthetic bowl, it’s time to add toppings…this is where you can be creative with your combos and have the ‘’Instagram-worthy’’ presentation. It’s the quick and essential sweet Summer recipe.

WHERE TO GO

The Ivy Restaurant

When it comes to where to go for food, there is nowhere quite like the Ivy, Spinningfields. Located in Manchester, The Ivy offers something for everyone – their brasserie menu serves a variety of dishes whilst Ivy Asia, on the second floor, serves Asian-inspired cocktails and small sharing dishes. There is also a roof terrace that is a must-visit on a warm summers evening. For those who are not local to Manchester, there are other Ivy locations including London, Leeds and Brighton.
