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/ Puffer Jackets

‘Tis the season for bundling up but with the current weather it can be hard to be stylish at the same time. What better way to stay warm and on-trend this winter than with a puffer jacket? A hit both on and off the catwalk this season, the variety of sizes, designs, and colours on the market makes it easy to find one that’s fit for you. This H&M navy and burgundy style is the perfect example of one which will keep you warm and dry all winter long.

Glossier’s range of sheer matte lipsticks have been popular since they launched in 2016 but after a brief time away, they’re back with a new and improved formula your lips will love. Generation G leaves a blot finished effect without the blotting. It’s smooth, soft, and gives a classic look with a true matte finish. You can swipe once for a just hint of colour or a few times to build up a bold look. With six edited shades to choose from, including Cake, Jam, Leo, and three other nude and berry colours, the choice is yours.

3/ Amazon Echo Look

Picking out an outfit just got easier with the help of the Echo Look Style Assistant by Amazon. It features a camera with an LED light that can snap a photo or record a video just by asking Alexa- “Alexa, take a picture”. You can organise your wardrobe on the Echo Look app and categorise clothing items as well, just like Cher in Clueless. The best part about it is the ‘Style Check’ feature which compares two outfits and gives a second opinion on which looks best on you and why. Plus, it also has the basic features of the original Echo such as weather updates, setting reminders, and more. While you can’t get it shipped directly to Ireland via Amazon.com, you can use one of the postal services such as AddressPal to get it straight to your door.

Whoever said velvet should be reserved solely for partywear was sorely mistaken. The fabric of the season not only makes for a great party dress but also the perfect living room furniture. Rendered in plush velvet with golden detailing, this forest green armchair just begs for you to sit back and relax in style this Christmas. Whether you opt for the complete set with a matching footstool to boot or just a single accent chair, this is the subtle style statement your home has been looking for.

5/ Yu Ling Jade Facial Rollers

The ancient Chinese skincare technique of facial rolling has been all over social media lately and for good reason. With fans such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Daisy Lowe, a jade roller has become a must in any beauty arsenal. A quick facial massage with the roller helps to boost blood circulation and even out skin tone as the rolling motion works to eliminate accumulated toxins and ‘lifts’ your face and neck muscles. You can also use it straight from the fridge to reduce undereye puffiness and brighten your complexion i.e. the perfect pick-me-up for hangover skin this party season.
