Something For The Weekend: The Style Life List

What do we love more than a Friday? A Friday before a Bank Holiday weekend, that’s what. With the sun finally shining (okay, kind of) and temperatures officially no longer freezing, we’re ready to celebrate what could actually be the start of summer. So keep your fingers crossed that we might actually have a reason to ditch our coats and slap on the sunscreen with our very optimistic Style Life List.

Trust us on the sunscreen

Speaking of sunscreen, we love Garnier Ambre Solaire’s new Over Makeup Super UV Protection Mist. Spray it on under or over makeup for protection up to SPF 50 and the best part? It’s small enough to fit into your handbag for top ups on the go so no more crispy pink faces after a weekend spent basking in your favourite beer garden.

Pizza the action

If last summer was about precariously perched Lockdown paddling pools, let 2021 be the summer of pizza – and we don’t mean pool floats. Every discerning foodie is snapping up the Ooni pizza oven. Starting at £249 for the 12 inch wood pellet Fyra model, what is an initial investment quickly pays off when you get to eat delicious pizza every. Single. Night. For those who prefer the quick convenience of gas, there are options to suit both tastes and if you can’t decide, the Karu multi-fuel version allows you to pick and choose.

Don’t dither too long though – most stockists sell out quickly after they take a delivery so it’s worth booking several retailers. As well as Ooni’s own site check out John Lewis, Lakeland and Selfridges.

Throw shade

If you’re looking for the perfect parasol to shield from the sun or shelter from sudden showers, we love this sage green shanghai design from Dunelm. At only £39 and with a crank handle, it’s the ideal addition to your outdoor space.

Humans of Rixo

We’re big fans of Rixo’s dresses here at The Style Life so we were super excited to find out that they’re launching their first playsuit. The Rina design comes in a fun floral print finished with leopard details.

Golden hour

Feeling a little pale? We all need a bit of magic in our lives at the moment and Sunday Riley has waved her wand with the brilliantly named Fairy Godmother Shimmering Body Oil Gel. It hydrates and nourishes your skin instantly as well as leaving a subtle sparkle. Packed with Vitamin C to fight signs of ageing and stress, grapeseed oil, coconut and gardenia, its tropical scent makes you feel like you’re on holiday.
