Is anyone else in total disbelief that we’re now over halfway through February?! Time flies and it seems Mondays come around quicker than any other day. Here at Remix HQ we’re big fans of having a good Monday. Starting the working week off right can set the tone for the rest of the week.

On that note, we have some delightful goodies to share with you this Monday, from nail polishes inspired by one of Europe’s most colourful cities to Liam & Ruby’s Pre-Fall Collections (pre-fall already?! We told you time was flying!). Grab yourself a strong coffee, write your Monday to-do list then sit back and take a load off while you read our absolute must-haves for this glorious day!

Get festive with Lancome’s Chinese New Year Collection

Bonds and comfort go together like Bella and Gigi. It’s a beautiful, unique pairing that everyone wants a piece of. Well, prepare yourselves for more comfort than ever before, with the launch of Bond’s latest collection – Originals. Paying homage to the nineties, this collection incorporates simple silhouettes with a modern twist, soft shapes and lightweight, luxurious textures.

Bonds and Milkshake share a similar mantra – that every body should be celebrated, no matter its size or shape. You could say this is a match made in Heaven! The Originals collection from Bonds is available in Farmers stores nationwide.

Summer is still going strong, thanks to Somersby!
You heard it from us: summer is still here ... and it's here to stay! We're keeping the sunny season around as long as possible with Somersby Cider. After all, if a crisp, cold glass of cider on a scorching hot day doesn't scream summer then we don't know what does! Best of all - Somersby does a pear flavoured cider. As if apple or blackberry weren't delicious enough, now we're craving the sweet summery taste of pear to finish with after a long day at work or a lazy day at the beach. Serve your favourite Somersby Cider over lots of ice in a long glass, preferably with a side of good friends and laid back summer tunes. Ahh, bliss!
