01 | Go on safari with andBeyond’s new range of virtual experiences 

Seeing a lion on your phone is a far cry from actually watching one in the flesh. For luxe safari tour operators andBeyond, they want to find other ways to bridge the digital gap: that’s why they’re offering a range of new programmes and experiences for globetrotters to satiate their wanderlust.

On top of their twice-daily live safari streams (which you can watch on their Instagram here), andBeyond has also started screening a kid-friendly series packed with entertaining activities and info for animal lovers — think Animal Planet, but live-streamed straight from a safari. To fund their conservation efforts in Africa, andBeyond also allows people to book more personalised experiences with their rangers and guides: so if you’ve been thinking about an upcoming trip to the savannah, it’ll serve as a great launching pad.

02 | Boost your complexion with Hera’s Youth Activating Cell Serum

One might think that staying in more might slow down the effects of skin aging — but with increased exposure to air conditioning, stress, and UV rays that filter in through the windows, it’s more necessary than ever to protect your skin. 

Hera’s new anti-aging serum features some heavy-lifting tech that helps reverse the damage caused by urban environments. The key ingredient in their Youth Activating Cell Serum is pyruvate, a chemical compound that acts as a cellular energy booster, allowing skin cells to regenerate faster and reduce collagen degradation. Plus, with its non-sticky, lightweight texture, it stays on like a dream.

03 | Prep your wardrobe with Net-A-Porters High Summer edit

Hot girl summer is most definitely upon us, as evident by the ever-increasing temperatures. Which makes Net-A-Porter’s new High Summer 2020 edit a timely one: expect flowy dresses from Paco Rabanne, elegant daytime outfits from Proenza Schouler,  and on-trend sport luxe options from Gianvito Rossi. The High Summer edit promises to be a one-stop-shop for the perfect seasonal wardrobe.

And if you’re looking for some poolside options, cult brand Arizona Love is also making their debut on the platform with a range of lustworthy sandals and some retro-inspired bikinis to go with.

04 | Step out in style with Gucci’s new pretty pastel bags

The circuit breaker is over, and with the new season upon us, there’s plenty to celebrate. Get into a good mood with Gucci’s Towards the Sun collection, a new range that reinterprets some of their most beloved bags in gorgeous, IG-friendly pastels.

Bags in the new range include the GG Marmont 2.0, the Zumi and 1955 Horsebit, now introduced in shades of powdery pinks and baby blues. Top it off with Gucci’s distinctive hardware and decoration, and you’ve got the makings of a summer-ready bag.

05 | Dior’s upcoming Rose de Vents pieces are made for romantic journeys 

Dior is a house known for its iconic motifs, not least the Rose de vents. Introduced back in 2015 by Dior Joaillerie’s creative director Victoire de Castellane, their Rose de vents line — which translates to ‘compass rose’ — is a symbol of romance and great adventures. And this season, the rose continues its odyssey with a new range of jewellery.

Delicate charm bracelets, subtle hand jewels and elaborate chokers form the collection, which was designed to be worn as close to the skin as possible — like a tender secret. The creations, which come primarily in warm yellow gold, are complemented by onyxes, mother-of-pearls, and striking malachites and lapis lazuli.
