With an extra serve of good vibes, every day seems like the weekend is just getting started at TGI Fridays. Expect American home-cooking with a twist: loaded potato skins, ribs and wings, and Jack Daniel’s glazed burgers. Injecting a touch of glamour, The Florist will offer deli, rotisserie and grill dishes, plus a menu of flower-themed cocktails to tantalise the senses. Sushi fans will love the ginza rolls with salmon, cream cheese, cucumber and arënkha caviar. But if you fancy a warm dish, try the spicy cod nanbanzuke.

sunkissed summer face needs good hydration, so always prep skin with 1 Reine Blanche Brightening Cream (L’Occitane, £54) before applying makeup. For flawless-looking skin, begin by applying 2 Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Illuminating SPF20 (John Lewis, £30) and smoothing it onto the face with fingertips. Add a layer of 3 Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation (John Lewis, £31) for a pore-free finish. Finally, blend in 4 MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette (MAC Cosmetics, £30). Apply sparingly and use a brush to seamlessly blend the layers, always working downwards or sideways. We love the Real Techniques range of brushes from Boots and Superdrug. Next, tidy up the eyebrows using the 5 Brow Set (MAC Cosmetics, £15.50). Simply brush upwards and lightly fill with the applicator. Choose a tone slightly lighter than the natural brow colour to avoid looking too obviously ‘done.’ We used Eyelash Curlers from The Body Shop (£5), before applying 6 Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara (M&S, £9). Dust the face with 7 Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder (John Lewis, £30) for a soft, naturallooking summer glow. Cheeks need definition, so sweep 8 Mineralize Blush in Petal Power (MAC Cosmetics, £23) from the cheekbones to the temple, to subtly contour and lift. This colour works well on www.intu.co.uk/watford

Four ways to wear

Work it, girl! As the temperatures heat up, make sure your tailoring is cool. These reworked classics will keep you on top of your game – in and out of the boardroom

We all know the saying: if you want to get ahead, get a hat. A good hat gives you good fashion game and this summer, investing in a statement headpiece is the perfect way to weather sun or storm. There are hats for every temperature, from fun see-through rain bonnets to oversized floppy sunny brims. Looking for something more middle ground? A bucket hat is best for temperate days: just don’t use it to build sandcastles.

Beauty memo

Fashion rebels rule Arty cat eyes and rockabilly blowdries make for a striking beauty look this season

A Teddy Girl’s quiff is simple. Work some volumiser into your fringe, roll around a barrel brush and dry. Apply a light spritz for hold. It needn’t be perfect – this look is all about the D.I.Y. approach.

John Galliano

Teenage dreams and icons of the past formed the basis for one of this season’s strongest beauty trends. A retro rockabilly aesthetic is perfect for those who want to remain pale and interesting. The 1950s rebel look was brought up to date by emphasising graphic elements. Fire engine red lipstick and thick foundation were nowhere to be seen. SS18 skin is bare, with a touch of concealer where necessary. Add a highlighter sparingly for luminosity and finish with a freehand flick of black eyeliner.

Extra Large Hot Brush, Toni & Guy £8.50

Beauty Editor: For long hair, curl in large sections, wear in a high ponytail and pin your quiff at the front. Use a touch of hairspray to tidy wisps of hair.
