If the lack of sandal-worthy weather is getting you down then fear not as we’ve rounded up the best purchases to be made this May - the perfect way to cheer up, right? With nothing but our jollies at the top of our agenda this month, we’re busy curating the ultimate shopping list to cram into our suitcase. This summer , we’re packing Toast’s must-have raffia tote bag for the flight while there’s a pair of Duchess of Cambridge -inspired espadrilles that have caught our eye. On the beauty front, The Body Shop is helping us to pull together a guilt-free bathroom shelf with the launch of its vegan-friendly carrot cleanser and face wash. While royal fans will be pleased to find a coffee table book destined to provide endless sartorial inspiration from the Queen of co-ords herself. Now all we need is an array of matching brollies... From the jewellery collaboration everyone is talking about to holiday clobber, shop this month’s best buys.
From fiction to essays to short stories, all of this week’s best new books will give you a lot to talk about at your next book club.
The author of best-selling The Teenage Textbook and its sequel The Teenage Workbook has not ruled out the possibility of a third book.
