Wide-brim hats are a must when on a sun-filled vacation, but they’re notoriously tricky to transport. Enter BAGGU’s packable sun hat, a clever, lightweight design that comes in 16 prints and folds into a zip-up circular bag that’s compact enough to toss in your beach tote or carry-on luggage. Pull it out when you need shade (it’s wide enough to cover your face, neck, chest, and shoulders), and tie it under your chin to keep it in place when the breeze picks up.

"Checking into Estelle Manor, the closest thing to a Saltburn-esque staycation you`ll ever experience in the UK. Imagine a beautifully restored Jacobean manor on the cusp of the Cotswolds and nestled within 3,000 acres of Oxfordshire parkland, with extravagant interiors to match (expect bold artworks and intricate details around each corner), a Riviera-style pool to lounge by, and three different restaurant to sink your teeth into. The addition of the hotel`s new Eynsham Baths (an incredible spa modelled on traditional Roman baths) really takes the hotel up another notch, despite it already being in a league of its own." - @ginagoesto ...
