BOOK THIS 1 Hotel West Hollywood

When was the last time you were in LA? If you’re thinking – like us – that it’s high time you paid the City of Angels a visit, may we suggest you book into 1 Hotel West Hollywood for a portion of your stay? Cool and considered, the eco-conscious hotel places focus on nature and sustainability – there’s even an on-site organic garden and room keys are made from reclaimed wood. Boasting some 285 rooms, all with floor-to-ceiling windows, the Skyline rooms are a worthy splurge for the views of Downtown LA and the Hollywood Hills alone. Lap up more wowing scenes at Harriet’s Rooftop, an indoor-outdoor space that serves up elevated cocktails and moreish plates. For a change of scene, and pace, hit The Field House for a workout, or treat yourself to a toning facial workout at FaceGym. In short: 1 Hotel West Hollywood caters to your every whim.

SHOP THIS Charmer Blazer, Blazé Milano

One of the hardest working pieces in our wardrobes, blazers can smarten up any look. When it comes to suit jacket shopping, few can surpass Blazé Milano’s timeless silhouettes. Take their ‘Charmer’ blazer for example, which serves up effortless elegance in a trans-seasonal cream hue. Italian crafted with tone-on-tone silk lapels, this timeless piece will elevate your whole look – slip over your shoulders and your outfit will instantly appear infinitely chicer (test drive with everyday tees and jeans, or a simple silk slip dress if you don’t believe us).

CF Top Tip: With accentuated shoulders and a neatly nipped-in waist, brides-to-be should consider adding this to their bridal wardrobe.

SMELL THIS Paula's Ibiza Eclectic, LOEWE

One spritz of this, and you’ll be dreaming up your next Ibizan getaway. With escapism at its centre, this woody and floral fragrance, with gourmand undertones of coconut and soft vanilla, oozes hedonistic summer vibes. Created by Jonathan Anderson and LOEWE’s in-house perfumier, Nuria Cruelles, Paula’s Ibiza Eclectic captures the joy and freedom of summer, amplified by rich ylang ylang, Australian sandalwood, orange flower, night-blooming jasmine, and fresh Madagascan mandarin. In short: it’s summer ’22 in a bottle.

EAT THIS The Princess Royal

W11’s latest draw, The Princess Royal, on peaceful Hereford Road in Notting Hill, is a weekend must-visit. A chic pub with rooms, those passing through the area (following a rummage around Portobello Market and a pit stop at French import L’Appartement Sézane) will do well to stop here for a moreish bite and a glass of something chilled. The dog-friendly, elevated pub offers a particularly good Sunday lunch – nab a table in the Garden Room and order some focaccia and padron peppers for the table, followed by English burrata accompanied by blood orange, radicchio, and toasted coriander seeds to get you started. Chef Ben Tish’s menu is inspired by the sun-drenched Mediterranean way of life, whilst also placing focus on British produce. For the main event, opt for the ‘princess parmigiana’ (a great option for vegetarians) and the chicken salad with roast tomatoes, grilled gem, sourdough croutons and parmesan (plus a side of rosemary fries and aioli dip). Roast-wise, the chicken and lamb options are standouts. Finish on a sweet note, with one of the best panna cottas we’ve tasted in years.

LIGHT THIS The Museum Collection, Carrière Frères

A good night in is made all the better with a beautiful scented candle. Forming part of our springtime evening rituals, we’re lighting up Carrière Frères, The Museum Collection candle in Absinthe. An aromatic, green fragrance (other fragrances in the collection include Acacia and Waterlily), strike a match to Absinthe and freshen up your space in an instant. What’s more, the beautiful illustrations, which date from the early 17th to mid-19th century, nod to botanical exploration and will only add to your interiors.
