9 Knockout Swimsuit Brands We've Discovered This Year

Let's be realistic here: Not many of us are heading on holiday this year. Due to COVID restrictions and UK holidays being eye-wateringly expensive, plenty of us have opted for a staycation. But that shouldn't mean you can't wear a swimsuit. Thanks to an ongoing heatwave, we have quite a lot of warm weather ahead of us, and a new bikini or one-piece might be in order. If you're bored of the usual suspects, then you'll be pleased to know we've discovered some of the cooler new swimsuit brands that we're loving for 2021. Some might have launched a bit ago, but the main thing is that these have all been featured on some of the coolest Instagram stars we follow. The criteria I stuck to for the below selection was that I liked it and that I hadn't seen many people wearing it before or had nev...

I Thought I Hated SPF Until I Discovered This French One

It’s no secret that applying SPF every day is the single best thing we can do to help prevent skin ageing. But the truth is hardly any of us actually bother to. Whereas other powerhouse anti-ageing ingredients, such as retinol, offer almost overnight results, SPF offers no instant change. On top of that, the formulas tend to be tacky, greasy and generally woefully unpleasant to use. And trust me, as a beauty editor, I get it. For years, I have had dermatologists, skin experts and other beauty editors preaching to me that if I’m not applying SPF every single day (yes, even when it’s dark and grey out), I’m not worth my weight in gold as a beauty editor.Despite trying countless SPF products, I just couldn’t find one that my skin liked. If you ask me, a product that makes your skin greasy,...

We’ve Just Discovered Where to Buy Fine Jewellery That’s Affordable and Ethical

When you think of buying diamonds, especially for yourself, not many of us envision a very realistic scene. Audrey Hepburn and her croissant might come to mind before any ideas of online orders turning up at your door. But Edge of Ember is a jewellery brand that’s focused on changing that. We’ve had our eye on the brand for a number of years now, and always turn to them when searching for special but wearable layerable pieces, especially their delicate gold necklaces. But their new Conscious Diamonds collection is something else. Now on the second drop, these are fine jewellery pieces we can actually consider buying— and for ourselves no less (who doesn’t love a well deserved self-gift these days). The brand themselves say they aim to create ‘modern, everyday diamonds that feel like a s...

When I Discovered These Agolde Jeans, It Was Love at First Fit

Imagine finding the perfect pair of jeans and falling in love for the rest of your life? That was me when I discovered these Agolde Pinch Waist High Rise Kick Jeans ($178) two years ago. Yes, I'm being dramatic because I spent months looking for the one, and when I slipped into these Agolde jeans, it was quite literally love at first fit. I could immediately tell they were high quality. I could immediately tell they were high quality. The nonstretch denim and waist buttons provide some structure without restricting my movements, and the fabric doesn't itch or fade over time. Everything from the high-waist fit to the ankle length is designed with style in mind. I have since acquired many other pairs from Agolde, and I haven't felt the need to experiment with more brands. My favorite way...

I Discovered Skai Jackson's TikTok, and Never Have I Ever Seen So Many Rad '90s Tees

It's no secret that Dancing With the Stars talent and Disney channel star Skai Jackson has a bubbly personality - she's downright hilarious, and her TikTok is one place in particular where we really get to know her. Well, her and her wardrobe, which we've suddenly realized is chock-full of oversize vintage '90s tees, some of which she's snipped up and cropped to her liking, making them all the better uniforms for showing off her moves. It's safe to say 18-year-old Jackson has collected these marvels from thrift shopping in stores or online, and our heads are spinning just beginning to count the gems she's found. From a psychedelic tie-dye Rugrats tee to a '90s Lil Bow Wow tour shirt, and a few more well-known cartoon characters speckled in between, let's just say we'd pay big money to ...
