GUINOT FACIALS FROM DANU STUDIOS

There’s simply nothing dreamier than shaking off your shoes, climbing into the heated bed and being tucked into the duvet at Danu Studios.

Treatment aside, this process alone is enough to help you relax and unwind. Recently indulging in my fair share of treatments here, I am yet to find one I am not obsessed with.

From lashes, eyebrow treatments and massages, to microneedling, dermaplaning and more, the lovely ladies here have got all your beauty needs covered.

As the weather begins to change and we welcome spring, our skin can start crying out for a bit of TLC. Cue the Guinot Facials. This dreamy range is perfect for revitalising your skin and delivering glowing results.

The Guinot Hydradermie in particular is one worth mentioning. This treatment is adapted to each person’s unique skin needs, whether that’s concerns with dull complexion, acne, anti-ageing etc., all products are carefully selected during the facial to complement and help you look and feel your best ‘you’, delivering radiant results along the way.

LOCK EVERY DOOR BY RILEY SAGER

If you’re prepared to be sat on the edge of your seat and sleep with the lights on, then this page-turner by Riley Sager is a must read.

Lock Every Door follows the story of recently heartbroken and practically homeless Jules Larson, who accepts a new job as an apartment sitter at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious homes to the rich and famous.

But when her new and only friend mysteriously vanishes, our main character realises she’s involved in something much more sinister. It’s everything a thriller fan looks for in a book – a well crafted read packed with suspense and unpredictability.

ELEMIS PEPTIDE4 PLUMPING PILLOW FACIAL

Wake up to a radiant, younger-looking complexion thanks to Elemis’ Peptisde4 Plumping Pillow Facial. When we fall asleep at night, our body temperature tends to rise which results in a loss of hydration as our body goes into repair and recovery mode.

This super-cooling gel mask works to combat this, sealing in hydrating actives throughout the night, fighting the visible signs of tired, dull skin.

BRIDGERTON

Don your finest gown, pick out your silk gloves and practice your curtsey… the romantic, scandalous, and quick-witted Bridgerton series is back for season two.

If you didn’t binge watch your way through season one, think Pride and Prejudice meets Gossip Girl. The high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown follows The Ton on their look for love – in particular Daphne Bridgerton and the rebellious Duke of Hastings.

However, as we get ready for another promenade, this season’s focus will follow Viscount Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma.

Ready and waiting for the romance and scandal to unfold…
