Monthly Favourites: September
Each month Positive Luxury rounds-up our favourite picks from around the web. As the days get shorter we’re investing in cold-weather beauty treats, booking in weekend trips and cosying up with a few of our favourite podcasts. Feeling truly autumnal, here’s our September monthly favourites…
We’re listening to…Our Favourite Podcasts
Summer’s over and we’re all back to school…well, our desks. Fortunately, our favourite podcasts are sure to keep you entertained on your commute. The High Low is hosted by journalists Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton, who debate everything from Taylor Swift to gender pay gaps. Meanwhile, the Guilty Feminist podcast has comedian Deborah Frances-White at the helm. Talking to celebrity guests about important women’s issues, the show navigates the challenges of being both a feminist and a modern woman from a funny and relatable angle.
We’re booking tickets for…House Style
We’re planning a weekend trip to Chatsworth House to see the highly anticipated exhibition. Curated by Hamish Bowles, International Editor-at-Large at American Vogue, this Gucci-sponsored exhibition showcases some incredible gowns and explores the five centuries of fashion this incredible stately home has lived through. Be quick because the ambitious show only runs until 22 October!
We’re watching…The Next Black
The must-see fashion documentary is on our cosy, evening in watch-list. Released a couple of years ago, its exploration of what we are wearing, how we produce clothes, how we interact with them and how we care for them is as timely as ever.
We’re reading…Desert Mannequin
Qatar-based fashion blogger Anum Bashir serves her fashion commentary and front-row reports with a healthy dose of intelligence and wit. She’s based in the Middle East, but her outlook is global. She writes about everything from sustainability to feeling like an outsider at fashion weeks.
We’re stocking up on…Weleda Lip Balm
The change in season is often unkind to sensitive skin, particularly our lips. This creamy, jojoba oil-rich balm formula protects lips from chapping and adds an autumnal flush of colour – our favourite is the ripe Berry Red. Just throw in your handbag for intense lip-care on-the-go and a perfect pout.
