Treat your feet to a pair of espadrilles this summer and transport yourself to sunnier climes in this comfortable classic. Environmentally friendly and made in traditional espadrille factories in France and Spain, LoveEspadrilles come in a huge range of colours and patterns for men, women and kids. (loveespadrilles.com)

Running for a cause

It’s said the endorphins released during exercise make us happy, but what could make us happier than the knowledge that we’re helping others while we burn those calories? There are still charity places available for the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October – with over 175 great causes to choose from, what are you waiting for? (royalparkshalf.com)

Treating Dad

Dads often get left out in the cold. Not this year. Tore Andre Flo is showing fans around Chelsea FC on 20 June, just in time for Father’s Day. Explore the dugout, visit the dressing rooms and go pitch-side through the tunnel – it’s the perfect gift for a sports-mad dad. (chelseafc.com/tours)

Liz Hurley, Yasmine le Bon, Nigella Lawson – prestigious Mayfair salon Jo Hansford calls them all customers. Now get a piece of the salon’s action at home with Treat Dry Fly. The perfect pre-holiday treatment, it includes an intensive hair masque containing UV protection and a blow dry, plus you get a faux-snakeskin bag full of travel-sized products to take with you to help your hair maintain sumptuous shine in the sun.

Diptyque

Everyone loves Diptique’s heavenly scents and there’s one more reason to shop there this month as 10 per cent of the proceeds from the special-edition Diptique RED scented candle are being donated to the Global Fund, helping the battle against AIDS in Africa. Allow the rose-scented aroma, accented with Madagascan and fairtrade Indian vanilla, to fill your home and support a very worthy cause. (diptyqueparis.com)

LoveEsapadrilles

The Goring hotel is celebrating its centenary year by transforming its garden into a croquet lawn during July and August. Enjoy an afternoon tea prepared by chef Derek Quelch, with teas and preserves from Fortnum and Mason. There will be help on hand for croquet novices from Jaques of London, the very people that introduced the game to England in 1851, and light refreshments served on the veranda as day turns to dusk.

Cool kids

The likes of Brooklyn Beckham and Suri Cruise have paved the way for cool kids everywhere. Gone are the days when youngsters had the choice of only a handful of clothing shops linked to huge adult chains (or, heaven forbid, hand-me-downs). Visit Their Nibs in Kensington for original kiddie fashions. (theirnibs.com)
