Monday 14 July 2014
We’re visiting…Man cave
Forget sweaty fitting rooms and unflattering lighting, for a more civilised shopping experience Topman’s Oxford Circus store has opened a new personal shopping suite. Relax in the comfort of your own oversized changing room while a stylist caters to your every shopping need. topman.com
We love… Blow dry Perfection
A launch from GHD is a cause for considerable excitement; following its much-loved straighteners, the GHD Aura is no ordinary hairdryer. New technology allows for greater styling control, more shine and added volume. £145, ghdhair.com
We’re not sure about… Filthy fashion
It’s dirty work, shopping. Research by King’s College found Oxford Street to be the most toxic shopping district in the world. So shield your skin with the Streetwise collection from Orico designed as a defence to pollution.
From £13, oricolondon.co.uk

We can’t wait for… Grand lashes
