SELF-CARE IN FIVE COLOURFUL PIECES…
Now we finally have some beach-worthy weather, I’ve been looking for the perfect jewellery to wear with a swimsuit. Enter this necklace by Clarke Palmer, which reminds me of the very expensive colourful jewellery everyone seems to be wearing with swimwear right now. I’m talking £5,000 up. This is far more affordable! Shades of gold, yellow and orange like a sunset; hot-pink Preciosa and Miyuki glass beads; gold vermeil clasp and three charms of your choice. And you can add a bespoke touch by choosing to add initialled 24kt gold vermeil beads. What’s not to like? Golden sunlight clasp necklace, £45, clarkepalmer.com
The most exquisite packaging and the only beauty counter that makes me stop in my tracks, it has to be Christian Louboutin. Match the soles of your Loubs with your lippy. I know, it looks like a piece of art. I’m finally back in love with red lipstick…
GET IN THE MOOD
According to new eyewear collection Victorious Beings, “colour is electromagnetic frequency”. Wear the right-coloured lens and you may find your nerves calmed or mood enhanced by increased happiness.
With lenses ranging from hot pink to deep orange, I’ve taken to wearing a subtle hue of rose. Because, let’s face it, every woman needs to put on her rose-tinted spectacles at some stage in her life. Might as well wear them now. £173, victoriousbeings.com
I love green dresses. If anyone asks, this is vintage (it’s M&S… shhh, don’t tell anyone). £55, marksandspencer.com
Exclusive to Net-a-Porter, this little bag is big enough for all you’ll need on a hot summer’s evening. Well, actually it might not be, but it makes me smile and we could all do with a little cheering up. Wear a dress with large pockets.
