The fireside page-turner

This debut novel from Chinese-American Susie Yang has launched into 2021 with a bang with many saying they’ve devoured it in a day. We’re not quite there, but are really enjoying the excitement of this page-turner and the lockdown escapism it offers on these dark nights. 

White Ivy by Susie Yang – £8.00

The natural energy booster

Yes, like most people RN now we’ve got coffee running constantly through our veins. But after attending a webinar on the benefits of drinking water just before Christmas, we’re all trying to get two litres in before 11 am each morning. Apparently, water is the energy drink of 2021 – stay tuned for more on that. In the meantime, we’re making sure we’re keeping it interesting with this collaboration from Suki Waterhouse and Waterdrop which includes microdrinks full of vitamins to keep our water flavoured and interesting. 


Suki Waterhouse x Waterdrop Set – £35.00

Make your home workspace smell divine

To say we’ve burned this candle non-stop since we bought it might be an exaggeration (we do blow it out to go to sleep, after all. But other than that, this incredible smelling candle from Bulan has been making our home office space so much more luxe.


Bulan Ylang Ylang and Amber Candle – £35.00

Facemasks at lunchtime? OK then

Our editor Laura is trying out this much-coveted Sukari Babyfacial from Drunk Elephant which has finally been released in the UK this month. This resurfacing treatment is heralded to be a game-changing weekly facial product, promising to minimise problem pores and fine lines as well as give a baby skin softness and healthy glow. After one use the results are definitely glowing – but stay tuned for a more in-depth review.
