From the latest fashion trends to the newest book releases and beauty launches, the Lunchtime Edit is all about the little things that you can shop or simply enjoy on your lunch break. This week we’ve found a kitsch clutch bag you’ll be toting all summer long, a skincare saviour and the new piece of garden furniture you won’t want to get out of.

1/ Serpui Parrot Clutch

It’s hard not to smile when you see this parrot-shaped clutch bag by Brazilian designer, Serpui. Evoking tropical vibes and using her surroundings as her source of inspiration, the luxe straw minaudière is a work of art you can carry with you wherever you go.

2/ Tiipii Hanging Hammock

The White Company

With the current bout of good weather we’re experiencing, we can’t think of better place to relax under the sun than in this tiippii style hammock by The White Company. With room enough for two adults (or five little ones), the hammock is made for lazing about both indoors and outdoors with its cleverly designed UV and water-resistant material or can be packed away and brought on an overnight camping trip.

3/ Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste

Forget your morning coffee as this vitamin C mask will perk you up in a way that caffeine never will. This innovative treatment instantly refreshes and brightens your complexion while reducing redness and pigmentation over time with regular use, promoting a more even-toned and glowing appearance. This wonder product, which is available exclusively in Ireland on Fetch Beauty, also acts as a natural shield against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, making it a must-have for the summertime.

4/ Shell Necklace

Lucy Williams

If there’s one accessory trend that shines brighter than the rest this season it has to be the current obsession with shell-inspired jewellery. Yes, the conch shell necklaces and bracelets your teenage-self used to pick up after every trip abroad are the accessory of the summer. Embrace this nostalgic trend with Mango’s reworked gold chain as seen on fashion blogger Lucy Williams for a contemporary update.

5/ Avajar Perfect V Lifting Premium Mask

No, this isn’t something out of Silence of the Lambs; it’s a skincare mask for your jaw. Originating from Korea, the mask works to redefine your jawline by tightly grasping the extra “flab” around the chin and treating it with a specially formulated essence to tighten and lift the area. It’s like a non-invasive beauty treatment you can undergo in the comfort of your home, just pop it on for 20 minutes a day while you’re catching up on Netflix or if you’re lucky enough to work from home, wear it during your lunch break.
