Editor’s Comment: Sunshine heralds Diamond Jubilee and the Royal Ascot countdown begins
(*New for May/June*)
How lovely to arrive at the end of a month with Britain bathed in glorious sunshine. Perhaps our weather has finally made a turn for the better and we will be able to celebrate the forthcoming Jubilee and Summer Olympics in blistering conditions. If you are looking for ways to mark the former occasion during the forthcoming Bank Holiday, The Sloaney has some top tips for arranging a Girls Day and Night out in London, with a majestic theme that pays tribute to The Queen and the Royal family (see here).
This evening, The Sloaney will attend the private launch of The Terrace at the Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel. Located in the heart of Knightsbridge, this venue promises the perfect al fresco dining experience and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Stay tuned to see whether it delivers.
For those who still have an inkling to hop on a plane for a luxury getaway, despite the beautiful British sunshine, one of our top feature writers, Natasha Eddery, recently visited the opulent La Bastide de Marie in Provence. This secluded and sophisticated destination is ideal for those seeking some privacy (read the review here).
If you have a sun holiday fast approaching, forget the fad diets and crazy workout sessions; I have discovered some hidden secrets that will help you look your best on the beach (they are revealed here).
Our Beauty Editor, Halle Carlson, has fallen head over heels in love with the new Hourglass Cosmetics range and you can find out why here. Meanwhile, a new addition to The Sloaney team, Sarah Bacon, has been researching how to get the perfect pout for summer (don’t miss her tips here).
There has been plenty of glitz and glamour in the fashion stakes over the last month, with Eva Longoria turning heads in an incredibly extravagant gown in Cannes (gaze at it here). Cameron Diaz firmly set the trend for a season of white at the London Premiere of What To Expect When You’re Expecting and we have selected our favourite items for your wardrobe here. This morning, The Sloaney was delighted to bring you news of the unveiling of Burberry’s latest stars. If you have yet to find out who will be fronting the campaign this season, click here.
As we look ahead to June, there are plenty of exciting events in store. The countdown to Royal Ascot has begun and I will be reporting live from the Royal Enclose in mid-June. With this in mind, I simply could not resist posting a stunning picture of the Duchess of Cambridge from The Queen’s recent Garden Party on our Facebook page this morning; she is an inspiration for all race goers this season (you can see her attire here).
If you are planning to attend Royal Ascot, but are in need of some style inspiration, stay tuned to The Sloaney as we will have more fashion and beauty tips, along with travel and event news, coming your way shortly.
