Your Summer Suitcase
Summer holiday season is upon us – it’s time to purchase a new bikini and prep your skin for a hit of Vitamin D (and cocktail….or two). To save you some stress for when the kids break up, we’ve done the hard work and pulled together a list of the holiday essentials to book, and buy, pre-flight.
Whether you are a man or a woman, Richard Ward and his team will preen you from head to toe. Book a Kerastase Intense Nutrition Ritual (£25) to give your hair a deep nourishing treatment ensuring a shine all summer. The Carita Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage (from £65) is perfect for those whose day-to-day is deskside; begin the holiday relaxation process before becoming beach-side with this 30 or 45 minute massage.
Feeling great, means looking great too and new swimwear is a must. Boden’s Capri Bikini (from £30) in bold, contrasting colours is perfect to take beach to bar which paired with a sarong.
Pack these gorilla swim shorts (£95) from Bluemint to give you a macho edge by the pool. Stylish, comfortable and lightweight.
For that perfect holiday read, head to Taschen. Shelves lined with books to cover every interest; travel, food, film… you name it, there is something for you. We suggest you pick up a travel book to inspire you and your next adventure. 100 Getaways Around the World (£35) will have you booking your next holiday before you’ve even landed back on home territory.
As the days turn to night, it’s time to turn up that hard-earned tan a notch. Dust yourself with NARS’ iconic bronzer in Laguna (£31) to show off your newly-acquired bronzed glow.
