This month’s cultural ups and downs
This summer, if your nails aren’t hosting a crayon-worthy hue, you may as well stay home. Try All That Jazz’s Caribbean Collection. We (and Rihanna) are fans.
We’re in! This soul-searching, true story of Tyler Wetherall’s rocky childhood, spent on the run with her father in his quest to escape the police, is a beautiful coming-of-age read.*
All hail the return of Lance Armstrong’s favourite garment as a fashion choice. We’re rocking these lace-trimmed Shein ones under a floral dress. Braver? Pair with a jacket and heels.
MAMMA MIA! 2
Has Meryl Streep’s character died? Will we care, given that the queen of everything, Cher, is playing Sophie’s (Amanda Seyfried) grandma? All will be revealed on 20th July.
We love this trend for penitent puddings. With iced reasons ranging from ‘Sorry I threw up’ to ‘I didn’t mean what I said during Mario Kart,’ any excuse for a Vicky sponge is fine by us.

Of course being stung by bees is Gwyneth Paltrow’s idea of a healing treatment. But we’ll steer clear of this acupuncture alternative after a woman died from an allergic reaction.
One wrong move in this boob-boosting swimwear and you could slip a nip. Holidays are for relaxing, not stressing about the visibility of your areolas…
It seems we’ve succumbed to inflata-fatigue. The final nail to puncture the proverbial blow-up coffin? This sausagedog offering. Sorry.
