Something For The Weekend

Happy Mother’s Day! We’re a little later than our usual SFTW this week but as it’s Sunday, it’s still technically the weekend so we’re good, right?

Smile please

It’s not often we get excited about dental products but we are loving this new range from MOON. The vegan and cruelty-free brand includes a teeth whitening pen, created alongside Kendall Jenner, and an activated Charcoal Fluoride-Free Whitening Toothpaste and Cavity Protection Whitening Toothpaste with Fluoride. They’ve got antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients too, so will do your pearly whites a heap of good. The Kendall Jenner Teeth Whitening Pen is £20 and the toothpastes are £11 and £10 respectively.

Social butterfly

We love the sound of the trail of the The Very Hungry Caterpillar at Kew Gardens this Easter. The new interactive adventure, based on Eric Carle’s best-selling children’s book, recreates the journey of the caterpillar from egg to butterfly though a series of 3D installations. Along the caterpillar’s trail, you wind your way through an assortment of fruit sculptures, giving you a unique insect’s eye view of the natural world, as well as learning about the role insects play in the garden. And then afterwards you can spend time admiring the beauty of Spring in the gardens. The trail is also going to be found at Wakehurst, Kew’s wild botanic garden in Sussex. It runs from April 2 to 18 at Kew Gardens and April 2 to 24 at Wakehurst.

Air time

If you’re getting ready for a Spring clean, pop this lovely air purifier on your shopping list. The compact, sleek design, from The White Company, works by adding a couple of drops of aromatherapy or fragrance oils to release the scent. Its filter systems capture microscopic airborne allergens and pollutants too, leaving your room fresh and fragrant. The portable air purifier costs £85, fragrance oils £10 and aromatherapy oils £20.

Sauce of good

While we’re all watching our pennies these days, a well-stocked pantry can make bland meals go further and taste delicious. Try adding some Scandi cool with these sauces and pastes from Copenhagen-based Empirical. Their four Provisions range start with pasilla sauce with chillies, lemongrass, galangal and baobab flour. Elixir 01 is a Scandinavian take on traditional Japanese Shoyu, made from steamed Swedish organic fava beans and fermented øland wheat. Elixir 02 has a base of umami liquid infused with Lapsang Souchong smoked over pine bark. And finally the Tasty Paste has smoked barley koji. They look great on your shelves too. Prices from 9.50 Euros.

Wean Team

The latest addition to Rochelle Humes’ brand My Little Coco is the very clever My Little Everything Chair. Designed to go everywhere and anywhere, this folding chair is the perfect travel companion for little ones – it straps onto a regular chair to become a high chair and then collapses down to be stored in it’s own bag, making it the perfect travel companion.

Priced at £50, available to buy at My Little Coco and Boots.com

Dream Team

With warmer weather finally here, we’re ditching our flannel pyjamas for something a little bit more summery – we love this chic silk shorts set, £170,  from French husband-and-wife due Gaåla. The brand blends French chic with the finest European craftsmanship to create beautiful clothing that you’ll wear again and again. We love the fact that they source and use deadstock fabric too, meaning that pieces are stylish AND sustainable.
