Don't Mind Us, We're Just Crushing Really Hard on the H&M x Lemlem Collection

In a joyful celebration of Black-owned fashion and sustainability, H&M launched a collaboration with Lemlem, a womenswear brand founded by Ethiopian supermodel, actress, and maternal-health advocate Liya Kebede. Known for its effortless aesthetic, Lemlem was born following a trip to Kebede's native land, where she decided to create opportunities for traditional weavers who no longer had a market for their craft. The brand's artisanal designs are reflected in the full collection, which features an array of lightweight, easy-to-wear, and versatile cover-ups, tops, maxi dresses, shorts, skirts, swimsuits, and accessories. The pieces are crafted from sustainable materials, including organic linen and recycled polyester, and are just as wearable for city weekends as they are for spontane...

Introducing Working Hard, Hardly Working: Grace Beverley's new book that'll shake up your career

Her sportswear brand TALA has made £10 million alone since it launched two years ago. You’ll likely have heard of Grace Beverley. She’s a jack of all trades: at just 24, she’s the founder of fitness app SHREDDY and sustainable activewear brand TALA. Not just that, but she’s a social media mogul with over a million followers who landed herself a highly sought after spot on last year’s Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. TALA alone has made over £10 million in sales since it launched just two years ago, and while Grace is clearly highly successful, when we meet on Zoom, she doesn’t come across as smug. Far from it – she’s actually surprisingly humble for a twenty-something millionaire. This is perhaps because she’s built her businesses fro...

Trust us when we say, these tips will help you cut down on waste, protect our planet and save money.

Stylish Lights Can be Hard to Find—But I Just Found 21 Gems

When it comes to buying new homewares, there always seem to be particular pieces that are inexplicably hard to find. Just like hunting down the perfect pair of jeans, lighting is a category that I personally struggled with when I moved into my new flat.

It also doesn't help that stylish lights can be cripplingly expensive. Take it from me—someone who spent a good 8 months looking for the perfect living room ceiling light—we need all the help we can get.While I am by no means an interiors expert, I have definitely put in the hours, scrolling through page upon page of bedside lamps on La Redoute and perfecting my search terms for vintage glo...
