VISIT THIS “Dalí Universe’’ Exhibition, WOW, Porto

Art lovers, this one is for you. To celebrate Salvador Dalí, “Dalí Universe” opens in Porto’s Cultural District. Born in 1904 in Figueres in the northeast of Spain, Dalí became a global personality, with a unique presence and an unmistakable style driven by his limitless creativity, along with his provocative humour and his famous moustache, building a brand that transcended time. The exhibition explores a diverse collection of his works, including drawings, sketches, paintings, sculptures as well as commercial pieces, along with a rare glimpse into the artist’s personal life, through a selection of pictures taken between 1955 and 1985 by Robert Descharnes, French photographer and friend of Dalí. It’s as much a reason to visit Porto, Portugal’s second-largest city, from the sunsets to the sensational food to the shopping. Perhaps you can also treat yourself to a cruise down the Douro River, stopping at wineries for tastings. Arts, culture, shopping and wine. It’s a weekend trip to book now.

DRINK HERE Della Vite Prosecco Terrace, Wild by Tart 

It may be short-lived but we do have a week of sunshine so terraces and spritz season are on our mind! Della Vite, the Prosecco brand founded by the Delevingne sisters, have partnered with Wild By Tart to takeover their terrace, transforming it into an homage to the Amalfi coast. Brought to life with olive trees, citrus plants, terracotta lavender pots and hanging foliage, the covered terrace is a great spot to enjoy some al fresco dining throughout the summer while sipping on a selection of refreshing Della Vite Prosecco spritzes. Enjoy the ‘Negroni Twist’, alongside the ‘Amalfi Spritz’ and the ‘Wild Vite.’ This vegan-certified Prosecco from the Prosecco region of Valdobbiadene, Northern Italy is a perfectly refreshing apero to cheers with friends.

EAT HERE Taste Film 

Marrying two of the classic, well-loved date night experiences into one, Taste Film offers the experience of a dinner date and movie night at the same time. It’s a delicious and sensory way to taste – literally – your way through a favourite film, without the envious cravings for street food hitting you mid way through a showing of Chef or for a large stack of pancakes during Matilda’s iconic baking scene. Founded in 2017 by Amy Fernando, the first ever Taste Film screened Goodfellas in a small Italian restaurant and since then, the screenings of some of the most loved  movies have run in collaboration with London’s well-loved kitchens and chefs. The whole concept is playful with particular attention to detail given in each of the dishes. The menu consists of three courses accompanied by alcoholic drinks which arrive in time with each scene for the ‘moment to meal’ concept. Each is served in a different way: for Pulp Fiction the iconic “they call it a royale with cheese” is served in a takeaway bag with the same comical branding from the film while an adrenaline shot of vodka was served via syringe with medical instructions on the side. There are vegan, gluten-free, and alcohol-free menus available on request too. Coming up are Mamma Mia!, Shrek 2, Mean Girls, and many more, “the only way to watch what you eat” this summer. No matter which film you chose, you’ll come out of Taste Film with a fresh flavour of a classic movie, remembering its best scenes in a new light, or should we say, taste.

USE THIS Innisfree skincare 



Whilst flying, your skin is prone to de-hydration due to low humidity levels which may lead your skin to looking dull and feeling tight. Alongside this, the recycled air on planes can also contribute to other skin challenges. Making sure that your skin is moisturised and extra hydrated can prevent de-hydration and maintain a healthy glow. K-Beauty brand, Innisfree, has your summer holiday jet, set, glow in mind. Hydrate and cleanse the skin in one step with their Green Tea Amino Acid Cleansing Foam, a vegan, alcohol-free formula that delivers a gentle, non-stripping cleanse. The Green Tea Seed Hyaluronic Serum floods the skin with intense, instant and long-lasting hydration and is also enriched with squalane. Finish off with the instantly cooling eye Green Tea Caffeine Bright-Eye Serum to brighten the eye area, targeting puffiness, and the Green Tea Seed Hyaluronic Cream for intense hydration, lightweight, silky and oh-so dewy.
