Something for the weekend

Margaret Hussey rounds up her favourite weekly finds…

Hippy chick

With brighter evenings and sunshine finally returning we all want to get back out on the road. And what better way to do it than with the brilliantly named The Well Heeled Hippy. Its luxury campervans – Roaming Delilah and Captain’s Rest – have everything you need to do it in style. Handcrafted with bespoke detailing, they are powered by solar, rechargeable battery power or gas and their top of the range heating and hot water systems mean they are perfect for all weathers. There’s a pull-out movie theatre, table top BBQs and fire pits.

Think of 5 star on wheels. And you can also hire the bell tent for extra space or for simple camping. Campervans from £165 a day; tents from £120 a day or £50 as an add on. For more visit

Purple reign

Founded by renowned hairdresser Paul Windle, we are loving this new shampoo and conditioner from Windle Lab. It’s got purple tea, olifera and abyssinica oils and will give your hair enhanced shine and neutralise any brassy tones. They are also vegan with no sulphates or parabens. They are all based on the scientific expertise of their in-house chemists in the Lake District. And if you fancy a cut from the man himself, you can pop into the award-winning Windle London Salon in Covent Garden. Shampoo from £12 and conditioner from £13;  

It’s lit

From new wellness brand Never Go Alone comes this beautiful scent and therapy candle. The N.G.A Edition: 01 Sandstone is made from vegan wax.

They also do a gorgeous sanitising mist with aloe, ginseng and green tea. The candle costs £52; the sanitising mist, £20,
