Hellenic Republic’s Cypriot Grain Salad

“I’m obsessed with this salad. It takes quite a bit of prep time but is absolutely worth it and if you wish, it can be bulked up with haloumi or chicken. Your taste buds can thank me later.”

Conscious & Concentrated Solid Beauty Bars

“By using Ethique products, I’m well on my way to removing all plastic from my bathroom and doing my bit to #giveupthebottle. One tiny shampoo or conditioner bar is equivalent to three (!) bottles of liquid shampoo and packed with quality ingredients that are actually good for your hair. Once you swap, you won’t go back!”

Life On Mars by John Agee

“My daughter has decided she’s moving to Mars because of this book. It is not your average tuck-in tale and it gives me an existential crisis every time but I love reading it.”

Life On Mars, Book Depository, $23.81

Sophie Hunter, Designer

Uniqlo Short Sleeve Tee

“These tees are the bomb! Their roomy cut and length is perfect for me, and the quality is so good. This one is the best shade of pale pink ever, but I also love the green, light grey, red and may have one of each of those too.”

Uniqlo Short Sleeve Tee in Pink, $14.90

Two Fashion Docs About Unconventional Creatives

“On a recent flight I watched two compelling and moving documentaries: McQueen about British designer Alexander McQueen and The Gospel According To André about the life and career of André Leon Talley, former Vogue magazine editor-at-large and one of the fashion industry’s influential icons. Despite McQueen’s tragic death, both films are inspiring and a great reminder that challenging the status quo is where great art comes from. Also, my other guilty pleasure on this flight was watching the entire first season of the HBO series Succession. It’s no secret that this series might be based on a Murdoch-style family. Cue the NY glitz and backstabbing antics.”
