Viktor & Rolf are the talk of the town, and social media, as they kicked-off fashion week with a truly unignorable collection.

The feminine princess dresses, contrasted with hard hitting millennial lingo, caught the attention of the fashion world - fully embracing hyper-modern (in contrast to other fashion houses who made a return to tradition).

And it’s worked brilliantly for them - you only have to look at the thousands of social media comments and reposts as proof.

For the latest season of HBO’s cannabis-centric show, ‘High Maintenance’, lucky fans in Brooklyn, New York and Venice Beach, California were given 1000 free cannabis infused lattes.

Products that blur the line between food and beauty

Beauty and food, two categories you wouldn’t typically associate with each other, however there’s a host of new beauty and skincare products taking inspiration from food trends.

Lush have released an emoji inspired Aubergine bathbomb.

Skinny Dip have released a bath soak called ‘Just peachy’ that comes in a juice carton.

Bubble T cosmetics have a line of bath infusion tea bags inspired by the bubble tea trend.
