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. Here’s what we’re loving this month.


1/ Meadows & Byrne Side Table

Reinvigorate your home with Meadows & Byrne’s Scandi-inspired side table. Made from solid oak with brushed nickel features and dark grey drawers perched on four asymmetric legs, this contemporary nightstand is just begging to be placed by your bedside and filled with your most personal belongings.

2/ Fila Disruptor

Channel the ’90s with the OG ugly shoe, the Fila Disruptor. With a chunky sole to beat all other chunky soles, the Disruptor is one of the most popular (and most searched for) women’s shoes of 2018, as seen on the biggest sneakerheads and A-list stars such as Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski. Despite their mammoth size and unconventional shape, they’re deceptively easy to style and they make your legs look slimmer so it’s a no-brainer when considering what shoes to buy this season. If you want in on this trend, don’t settle for anything less than the original.

3/ Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer

If you’ve got undereye circles darker than the depths of your handbag or crater-sized blemishes, listen up. From the award-winning beauty blogger, Huda Kattan A.K.A. Huda Beauty, comes the “hardest working concealer” everyone needs in their makeup kit. Packed with as much pigment as possible, Overachiever Concealer is a long-wearing, water-resistant, blemish-blurring must-have that comes in a range of 20 shades to suit all skin tones. With a subtle luminous matte finish, it promises not to settle into fine lines, cake or create a flashback effect in photos.

4/ Bohemian Rhapsody

Once the biggest band in the world and now one of the most anticipated movies of 2018, Bohemian Rhapsody tells the story of Queen and its legendary frontman, Freddie Mercury. Charting the meteoric rise of the band, Bohemian Rhapsody is a celebration of Queen and one of the greatest performers ever seen on stage, with a soundtrack that will have you stomping your feet in your seat.

Bohemian Rhapsody is released in cinemas nationwide this week.

5/ Milkman by Anna Burns

As the winner of the Man Booker Prize 2018, Anna Burns’ latest novel comes top of our reading list this month. A tale of gossip and hearsay, Milkman is set in the city of Belfast during the Troubles, told from the perspective of an 18-year-old woman who has become the fixation of a senior paramilitary officer’s unwanted attention. It is a story of inaction with enormous consequences.
