BOOK THIS ModernHaus SoHo
Inspired by the Bauhaus art movement, ModernHaus SoHo’s design focuses on clean lines, geometric harmony, and large windows. The recently renovated rooms at this SoHo hotel are decorated with flair, featuring panoramic city views and vibrant artwork. The Gallery Penthouse is a real showstopper, in line with the hotel’s one-of-a-kind art collection, which includes dozens of paintings and sculptures from the likes of Hans Hartung, George Condo, Harland Miller, and Jean Dubuffet.

ATTEND THIS RADA Talks: Phoebe Waller-Bridge And Fiona Shaw In Conversation
RADA grads Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, No Time to Die, Han Solo) and Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter, Killing Eve, Fleabag) will be in conversation on Wednesday 28th July at 8PM, as part of the drama school’s RADA Talks series.

This plush velvet with tasselled trim and a removable lid is perfect for storing your favourite adornments.
DISCOVER THIS Lavender Green Flowers
Lavender Green Flowers – who, FYI, did the wedding flowers for Sophie Wessex and Pippa Middleton, amongst others – have opened a new store on the King’s Road and we’re eager to visit. Filled to the brim with fresh flowers and a carefully curated collection of unique gifts, from stylish homewares to antiques and curiosities, there’s a lot to take in. For the green fingered among you, sign up to partake in three-day, five-day and two-week courses in their newly developed flower school (courses will run from Autumn). Alternatively, make a beeline for their new coffee shop, admiring your floral surrounds as you sip on a smooth flat white.
TRY THIS Ocushield Bluelight-Blocking Glasses
These glasses from Ochushield filter blue light (the light that comes out of your digital devices) to help counter the potential negatives of spending too much time with your phone, your laptop and co. This tortoise pair is non-prescription, anti-glare, and boast a lightweight frame. Pop them on during your working day, or even while watching TV (a particularly good idea in the evening, to help reduce your exposure pre-bed and ensure a more restful night’s sleep).
