Are you dreaming of escaping to an exotic location? Aren’t we all… But as the prospect of international travel becomes increasingly unclear, we are turning our homes into our own version of paradise.

Caleño Non-Alcoholic Distilled Spirit

Transport yourself to Colombia…

This new Colombian-inspired non-alcoholic ‘spirit’ has been joyfully distilled with light and zesty botanicals including juniper, pineapple, citrus, spice and the iconic golden Inca berry. This tropical blend is steam-distilled in stainless steels drums and perfectly served over ice, with tonic and your favourite tropical garnish. Founder Ellie went on a mission to infuse the sun-drenched flavours of Colombia with her light and zesty alcohol-free spirit. The result? A latino party like no other. All the more reason to invite your friends over for a fiesta.

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Transport yourself to Brazil…

We are obsessed with Sol de Janeiro’s award-winning all-over body cream. Deliciously scented and fast-absorbing, it helps smooth and visibly tighten the appearance of skin. Infused with caffeine-rich guaraná extract and a tropical cocktail of cupuaçu Butter, açaí oil, and coconut oil, this ‘smells good enough to eat’ cream is combined with an addictive pistachio and salted caramel fragrance. Slather it all over yourself after a hot shower and transport yourself to Copacabana beach. Just add a Caipirinha cocktail!

Island Poké

Transport yourself to Hawaii…

Poké is a humble fisherman’s snack originating from Hawaii that has gone viral in the last few years. Think of it like deconstructed sushi with sashimi grade tuna and salmon and all the toppings you can imagine from crispy shallots to fresh pineapple. Bring Hawaii to you with a DIY poké kit from Island Poké. You’ll get everything you need for four bowls; two classic ahi tuna and two yuzu lomi lomi salmon, plus a load of sriracha mayo to slather on top. Their vegan kit comes with enough teriyaki smoked tofu for four bowls. If you’re feeling adventurous, try out the Island Poké cookbook. It includes a whole range of Hawaiian inspired recipes, including the ultimate banana bread, everyone’s favourite lockdown bake!

Thai Massage with Urban

Transport yourself to Thailand…

Enjoy a Thai massage in the comfort of your own home with Urban. Nadège, Urban’s Lead Therapist says: “This is an ace massage for clearing energy channels as well as rebalancing postural misalignments and boosting flexibility. It’s the sort of treatment that blurs the lines between acupressure and deep tissue – so it’s ideal if you’ve got sore muscles or want a drop in stress levels.” A great massage for reducing stress and calming the central nervous system to promote better sleep habits. Expect a light-medium pressure with oil.

Transport yourself to Bali…

Get a beautiful, natural tan with Coco & Eve’s ethically sourced and cruelty free tanning products with the power of Bali ingredients. Coconut and mandarin oils deeply hydrate, a blend of banana, cocoa and papaya works to blur imperfections and even pigmentation. Orange works alongside lotus flower to illuminate your skin and smooth the appearance of cellulite. The cherry on top? This formula is infused with an irresistible mango and guava scent that you won’t want to wash away. Available in three olive-based shades, choose ‘Medium’ for lighter skin with pink undertones, ‘Dark’ for medium tones looking a post-holiday radiance and ‘Ultra Dark’ for deeper skin craving an added glow boost.

Fitness queen Kayla Itsines is a fan of Sunny Honey Tanning Foam in Dark and apart from giving you an overall healthy glow, tanning can also actually help you look more defined and sculpted.
