Beauty pick: Men’s travel kits from Crabtree & Evelyn

There’s plenty of beauty treats out there for the ladies but we love that there’s also a growing selection for the men. Don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing wrong with unisex but sometimes, it’s just nice to be different. In terms of travel kits though, we’re still finding that the majority of products out there are female focused and that’s why we love the fact that Crabtree & Evelyn has not just one, but three different kits out there for the gents. There’s no stopping you ladies from choosing these too but we think these fragrances will smell divinely masculine. West Indian lime travel kit Includes: West Indian Lime Body Read more ›

St Germain pop-up terrace at South Place Hotel

Who? St Germain and South Place Hotel What? The weather in London might be changing its mood constantly but it doesn’t mean you can’t get into the swing of summer. We recommend heading to the roof-top bar of South Place Hotel, just outside of The Angler restaurant, where there’s currently a St Germain pop-up. There’s four cocktails made with the elderflower liqueur, and they’re all pretty delicious. And whatever the weather, it’ll be easy to pretend it’s summer. When? Open now until September 4, from 3pm until late Where? South Place Hotel, 3 South Place, London EC2M 2AF How? For more information, see southplacehotel.com
