It’s time to wave goodbye to August, and prepare for the month ahead.
As we shift into a September mindset, we’re looking to binge-worthy boxsets, cosy cabin stays, and (wander)lust-y delftware to keep us content.
Check out this week’s CF Hotlist below now.
PRIMP WITH THIS Posh Lipstick, Victoria Beckham Beauty
Our lips deserve a little pampering after months and months spent clammed up behind face masks. To enhance our lovely lèvres, we’re looking to VB Beauty’s Posh Lipsticks – now available in four new shades. Their vegan formula ticks all the proverbial boxes, offering wearers rich colour, deep moisture, and a soft shine. Hydrate your lips with a single swipe of ‘fire’ (our new favourite hue) and you’re good to go.
BOOKMARK THIS BiBi
‘Bibi’ – which translates in Urdu as ‘lady of the house’ – is used as a term of endearment for grandmothers across the Indian subcontinent. Drawing inspiration from Chef Patron Chet’s own Bibi and her ancestral teachings, this Mayfair newcomer will offer diners a playful menu influenced by the street carts and roadside cafés from Punjab in the north, to Kerala in the south. Opening next week (on Thursday 9 September), reservation lines are now live; book your spot ASAP.
BOOK THIS Storfjord Hotel
With Norway now on the UK’s green list for travel, we’ve set our sights on a visit to eco-lodge, Storfjord Hotel. A secluded spot, adjacent to one of Norway’s most famous fjords, Storfjord Hotel is all about tranquillity and paired-back luxury. With fireplaces galore, handcrafted log walls, and A-grade, four-course tasting menus for those keen to experience traditional Nordic fine dining, a return to city life after visiting this special spot will feel a near impossible feat.
SHOP THIS 'Leah Rose' Dinner Plates, Cutter Brooks
We’re devils for a souvenir. And plates are our Achilles’ heel. Whether collected piece by piece over many trips to Italy (with the ultimate goal of forming an eclectic dinnerware set), or squirrelled away until you’ve ample to display across your kitchen/bathroom walls, there’s always a reason to stock up on more delftware while abroad. That logic now extends to domestic travel too – we’re extending our sunshine state of mind and nabbing these (wander)lust-y plates from Cutter Brooks to grow our collection even further.
WATCH THIS Kevin Can F**k Himself, Amazon Prime
Allison McRoberts (played by Schitt’s Creek star, Annie Murphy) is married to her self-centered husband, Kevin. But ‘when Allison learns that the perfect future she envisioned is impossible, she makes a plan to take back control of her life’. A binge-worthy dark comedy to devour of an evening – now that the nights are beginning to shorten, its release is perfectly timed.
