centre:mk reveals June’s hot picks…
get ready for summer with us

 

We’re already into June and for many of us, thoughts are turning to sizzling summer days and sangria by the pool but there’s just one thing to tick off the pre-holiday checklist. Yes, the all-important summer holiday shop. As exciting as it is terrifying to many of us, we’re trying to ease the struggle of the last minute dash by giving you our edit of top buys – all available right now in centre:mk.

First up, unless you’re living under a rock you can’t have missed the fact that Miss Caroline Flack is back on our screens this week with the launch of the most talked about programme of last summer; Love Island. The TV appearance of course linked cleverly with her first ever clothing collection launch at River Island (it’s pride of place in the new centre:mk store), but be warned some pieces have already sold out online so you might need to head to us to get your fix. We really love this 19-piece capsule collection; the copper wrap frill maxi skirt and separate ruched top have certainly stolen our hearts. Skirt: £45 / Top: £30

Talking about new things, another huge shout out this month has to go to Jigsaw (Silbury Arcade) whose pre-launch collection is spot on. Summer city styling at its best; the collection features spicy reds with cooling resin, airy prints and ultra-light fabrics for easy dressing. (Right and Below)

Clothes aside, who else struggles to get all their cosmetics and toiletries into a 15kg bag (let alone a carry on!) – Not just us? Phew! Well we do have a couple of solutions; miniatures being the obvious! Far from the airport it’ll-do dash, these tiny treasures from House of Fraser will have you longing for the full size versions long after your return.

Urban Decay – Petite Heat palette; £26 (above). The ultra-petite palette was designed for travelling, but don’t be surprised by its size – you still get full size pans of the legendary eyeshadow! Genius. 

The BAD gal mascara by benefit now comes in a mini version! Perfect for pool side selfies. This 36 hour volumising mascara is so worth the £10.50.

The AVEDA texture tonic mini will save your beach curls from day to evening. What’s more it’s made with certified organic cane sugar so you’ll be smelling as sweet as you feel. (below)

Last on our list; statement sliders - so hot right now and these ones from Kurt Geiger are no exception. Poolside, beach, city, festival – whatever the occasion as long as the suns out you can kick back and Instagram your feet as much as your heart desires with these bright beauts at £89. (below)
