We love… Barnyard birthday
Cowshed has long been the beauty brand of choice for those with a penchant for pampering, and this year it's celebrating its 15th birthday. As well as a special hand-care range to commemorate the milestone, the brand's spas are reintroducing three treatments with 1998 pricing.
We're not sure about… Rainy days and Mondays
Summer dresses were not meant to be accessorised with a brolly, which makes the recent spell of showers most unwelcome. There's also the risk of leaving the house on a sunny day in sandals only to return hours later mid-thunderstorm with waterlogged, wrinkly toes.
We're buying… Birds and bees
Theoretically speaking, insects shouldn't make the best subjects for jewellery. Who wants a creepy crawly hanging from their neck? However, the range of jewellery from London-based designer Cinderela B, now available in Warehouse, includes bee earrings and hummingbird necklaces which are as pretty as it gets.
£25, Cinderela B for Warehouse, warehouse.co.uk
We can't wait for… Jeanius
There's no excuse for boring denim these days with jeans available in every shape, colour and pattern. If yours are looking a little tired, it's worth a trip to Selfridges this weekend where a team from Mother is offering complimentary customisation with any purchase.
10 to 11 August, Denim Studio, Selfridges, London
We're saving up for… Haute handbags
We're all about a swish new bag here at The Audit and Elena Ghisellini is an accessories designer with some serious credentials. Currently at Givenchy, she boasts a CV that reads like a who's who of luxury brands and her eponymous debut is eagerly awaited.
£780, Elena Ghisellini, my-wardrobe.com
