Our Founder’s Monthly Must-Haves
Posted by Samantha Nice, May 18, 2022
I’m often asked what’s hot right now in the world of health, wellness and beauty so here are just a few of the things I’m loving right now…
Dr Julie’s new book – Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before? She’s a psychologist who has taken all the learnings from her career to create this toolkit for staying resilient and optimising your mental health. It’s the kind of book we should have all been handed at school. Buy your copy here.
Brianna Wiest (@briannawiest). I love her books - especially ‘This Is How You Heal’. It’s such a lovely, warm and wise book. Every time I read even just a few pages it’s like a big hug. Her Instagram is also overflowing with positivity so definitely worth a follow for your daily dose.
Jones Road makeup. Founded by makeup artist, Bobbi Brown, it’s all about clean formulas and high-performance products and I have to say the entire collection is super easy to wear and really flattering. My top pick? It has to be their Miracle Balm which I’ve been smudging onto my cheeks and even lips for a healthy, flushed glow.
My favourite podcast at the moment is Pandora Sykes’ – Doing It Right. It’s a weekly interview series that welcomes a whole host of different guests and they talk about all sorts. Pandora is great at prompting and encouraging really thoughtful conversation. If you like an easy listen on your morning walk – give this a go. Have a listen here.
SPF is a must all year round, but it can be tricky finding one. I’ve tried a fair few, but Lucy Bee’s NEW SPF 30 Serum Drops are brilliant. Lightweight, hydrating and of course, all-natural, I have been using this every day without fail. I’ve cooked with her coconut oil for years so this is a great range extension.
If there’s one thing Covid taught us, it’s that the UK has lots to offer. I’ve found so many beautiful local spots for holidaying that not only cost less, but there’s none of that airport faff either. We recently visited the Double Red Duke in the Cotswolds and had the most perfect mini break. Stylish, low-key and the food was amazing. If any of you can recommend anywhere else, please do let me know - @nicolaelliottneom
Whenever I’m in London for work, I always make sure I book onto a class or two at FRAME, which if you don’t know, is by far the coolest and most fun gym to go to. They’ve just introduced 30-minute classes which are designed to give you all the benefits of a full-length class in half the time… I’m sold.
I can’t get away from seeing and hearing about Cryotherapy and how good it is for you, so I’ve booked for a chamber treatment in London next month. Apparently, you feel amazing afterwards so I’ll report back on this one…
