LISTENING: Dominic Fike
Dominic Fike might have sung for a tad too long in Euphoria’s finale, and the internet made him pay the meme-worthy price, but don’t let that put you off the rest of his oeuvre. From the sunny-side up “3 Nights” to the sensuous “Babydoll”, Fike is one to watch – and listen to too. I think that’s called a double-threat.

WATCHING: Cabaret
Descend into decadent Berlin with the help of the Kit Kat club: a place where everyone can be free. A place where Eddie Redmayne snogs a gorilla and delicately contorts on stage in a ballooning red-satin clown suit. A place where Marie Antoinette meets Anne Summers – dipped in the 30s – in the pastel-coloured ruffles of the hypnotic dancers’ delectable costumes. A place where champagne flows, extravagance grows and in the words of Cabaret itself: Money makes the world go round. Starring Jessie Buckley as club performer Sally Bowles and Eddie Redmayne as the devious Emcee, this performance of a lifetime is all hit and not to miss.

USING: Estrid
When it comes to my beauty routine, I’ve been strict with myself since day one – thanks to my dermatologists. But recently, I’ve been feeling the need to branch out and test the waters with something new, and I’m thankful I did as I discovered Estrid. Already well known for their subscription razor service that sees a selection of vegan razors sent to your home monthly, the brand has also launched a range of moisturizers and cleansers that are perfect for shaving aftercare. From their sugar scrub to their Watermelon Jelly cleanse, the range is a must for your routine, as I’m already ordering my re-up.

DOING: Beats Fit Pro at 180 The Strand
If anyone knows me, they know I love a good TikTok, so when Beats invited me down to their dance class with dancer Regina Eigbe, I jumped at the chance. And while I don’t have the best rhythm or skill, the class was probably the most fun thing I’ve done in a while and definitely got me in the best mood for the rest of day. Oh and the free pancakes after? Just made my entire day!

EATING: Portobello Garden Arcade
If you are a fan of Italian cuisine, like me, Portobello Garden Arcade is a restaurant worth visiting. Having become a sort of regular stomping ground for me and my friends, should we find ourselves craving authentic pasta dishes drenched in rich sauces and a refreshing wine list, this is where we head. Nestled along one of West London’s most celebrated destinations, Portabello Road, the cosy establishment is one that you may miss at first glance thanks to its rustic exteriors, but one whose quaint character only adds to its charm.

WATCHING: Euphoria season two finale
I am pretty sure that I have used Euphoria as my Wonderland Loves multiple times at this point, but the season two finale of the hit HBO show has taken up a majority of my mental space for the entirety of this past week, so it is only fair that I discuss the episode here. With me still in utter denial regarding Ashtray’s fate, and overjoyed that Cassie got a sliver of what was coming to her, it is fair to say that last week’s episode rendered me speechless, overcome with emotions and a little empty inside. Also, unpopular opinions incoming, Elliot’s song really wasn’t that bad, and Lexi is the unproblematic queen she always has been, regardless of whatever was said in that play. Please, no one contact me until 2024!

Doing: Duck and Dry Mayfair
One of the many reasons I bonded so much with my uni housemate was that we shared a mutual love for pampering. So when we planned to spend the weekend together for her birthday, we kicked off our celebrations with a bouncy blow-dry by Duck and Dry, located on a side street in Mayfair. Not only is it the most Instagrammable place on earth, but it also boasts an impressive selection of cocktails and bubbly — something I decided to explore very thoroughly during my visit. The atmosphere is heavenly, and my hair genuinely has never looked better. Choosing from a huge variety of options, my bouncy curls were still in place over five days later. So if you’re in need of some me time, or fancy treating a girlfriend, I’d definitely recommend paying them a visit to give yourself that fresh hair feeling all week long.

Listening: Good Girl Gone Bad
Since Rihanna broke the internet with her baby bump and couture pregnancy chic, I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic. Ri’s Good Girl Gone Bad album was the first CD I ever owned — mainly because my name features in “Umbrella” a disturbing amount of times. Blasting every track through my speakers, I can almost see my younger self dancing to the tunes in pink leg warmers. And, to this very day, nothing gives me bad bitch energy quite like “Disturbia”. Though I feel more desperate than ever for some new material from the mother-to-be, for now, I’ll be basking in her bad girl era while placing bets on baby names.

FASHION: Rihanna’s Pregnancy Style
Over the past few weeks, Rihanna has revolutionised maternity wear as we know it. She looks better than ever, and I can’t get enough of it!

FASHION: Diesel’s AW22 Fashion Show
Diesel’s latest collection bought us a reinvention of 00s chic with an innovative take on the brand’s signature style, and I am here for it. I want everything in this collection, especially this pink mini dress moment!

WEARING: Diamanté’s
Staying on the Y2K theme, I’m loving the return of diamantés. Bought to popularity through Euphoria’s iconic makeup looks, they are the new eye makeup craze and can be used to create the cutest eye look, as well as standing as an amazing addition to any nail art.
