On & Around the Street

New Year Feel-Good Buys

The new year has arrived, drawing the curtain on the tumult of 2020 and bringing a sense of hope for change and happier times in 2021.

That said, January is cold and dark, we’re in the midst of a third lockdown, with rising Covid-19 rates and some pretty bleak news headlines.

So, to help bring a little more sunshine and joy to your day, we’ve curated a selection treats with an in-built feel-good factor, from taking a moment in your daily stay-at-home routine to spritz on a little scent (no other sense is more directly linked to the brain’s processing centre for memories and emotion than the olfactory), to reducing your screen time with a classic timepiece like Cartier’s classic Panthère watch or the morale boost that comes with catching a glimpse of a truly beautiful bit of bling.

And, remember, you can still shop Sloane Street from home.
