Sculpted by Aimee Beauty Balm, €12
IF you’re currently kissing a few frogs to get to your prince, then meet your new handbag hero which promises to hydrate dry and tired lips and lock in moisture.
This little beauty is packed with hyaluronic acid to breathe some life into your smackers and shea butter to soothe and soften the skin, while cica helps strengthen the skin’s natural barriers and fight dull lips in the long-term.
Perfect for prepping your pout before lipstick, too.

Jo Malone London Red Roses Cologne, €124
ROSES are nice and all, but if you don’t want to pay half your monthly wage for a bunch of blooms that will wilt as soon as you pop them in a vase, then I have the next best thing.
Unfolding like a bouquet of freshly-picked flowers, this Jo Malone London fragrance embodies the essence of modern romance. The perfume is inspired by a luscious blend of seven of the world’s most exquisite roses — so tell that to Sharon from accounts when she asks you how many red roses you’ve received.
