How to make a small kitchen look luxurious

Stay ahead of the trend in fashion and beyond with our free weekly Lifestyle Edit newsletter Stay ahead of the trend in fashion and beyond with our free weekly Lifestyle Edit newsletter Picture a classic luxury kitchen and visions of colossal islands and wide-open spaces flooded with natural light might come to mind.

Mega, extra chunky and luxurious: how Easter eggs roll in 2024 | Retail industry

Mega, extra chunky and luxurious: how Easter eggs roll in 2024 | Retail industry

At Easter, people used to get excited if theirs came with a mug and a bag of sweets but those days are over, with social media stoking demand for talking point “mega eggs” in fancy shapes and exotic flavours. The choice is no longer just about the type: think “blonde”, “strawberry-white” or “pistachio” flavour chocolate not bog-standard milk, dark and white. There is also a race to create the thickest and, ergo, most luxurious shells. Hotel Chocolat’s “extra thick” £29.45 eggs, for example, boast a shell so “supremely chunky” as to make dentists shudder. With the Easter holiday almost upon us, the retailer’s website has also sold out of its “lavishly thick” 1kg Ostrich eggs, which cost £85. Hotel Chocolat’s extra-thick egg that retails for £29.45 Photograph: Hotel Chocolat With the amount spent on chocolate at Easter second only to Christmas, the big players Cadbury, Mars and Nestlé have all produced super-sized eggs for about £10 that tap into what analysts said was the fastest growing part of the market in 2023. “We’ve certainly noticed …

Instead of spending the evening wining and dining, February 14th is reserved for the ultimate night of pampering. Here our experts share the beauty and wellness heroes they’ll be reaching for this Wednesday… Lydia Mormen, HELLO! Junior Beauty Writer: My double-pamper duo  Lydia Mormen, HELLO! Junior Beauty Writer “In another life, I would train to be a manicurist, so nothing filled me with more joy than when I got an at-home gel mani kit of my own. “While nothing beats having your nails done in the salon, I find it therapeutic to paint my own nails without any risk of smudging. “The at-home set I’ve been using is the Mylee ‘Gel Nail Kit’ and so far, I’m impressed. The brand has a huge range of colours to choose from but I’ve been obsessing over a clean translucent pink that lasts about two weeks. “While I’m painting away I like to indulge in a face mask at the same time.

Devialet’s Gemini II are the most luxurious wireless earbuds you can get

Devialet’s Gemini II are the most luxurious wireless earbuds you can get

Devialet isn’t like any other tech company — its products are at the intersection of audio engineering and luxury. That’s why its new wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation don’t look like other earbuds. This isn’t a mass market product. When I covered the product launch at the Paris Opera, the French company’s CEO Franck Lebouchard told me that it expects to sell “tens of thousands” of units per year. Analysts estimate that Apple sells tens of millions of AirPods per year. Devialet hopes it can capture 0.x percent of market share by positioning itself as a high-end alternative to wireless earbuds from Apple, Samsung, Anker — and even Bose and Sony. So what does a pair of high-end wireless earbuds look like? I have been using the Devialet Gemini II for the past couple of weeks. Let’s be clear, this product is the most extravagant take on wireless earbuds — they cost $449 (€399, £349). In short, yes, the Gemini II are both extremely good and extremely expensive. This is the second generation of …
