IMAGE.ie’s picks of the best buys of the week.

Looking for a shopping fix? Here’s the best of what’s new this week.

Another lockdown where my roots are making me wince at myself in the mirror. No matter what I do to my hair right now, all I see is root. So if you’re trying to avoid heat or your roots are ruining your days, meet the hair claw. Let the revival of the claw be a reminder to you that no matter how tired you find an accessory, the cyclical nature of fashion will one day make you wish you’d never thrown it out. Who would have thought that the tortoiseshell claw you wore two decades ago would be on your wishlist today? Check out London brand Tort for a selection of hair claws in joyful and vibrant shades and patterns.

In more pandemic essentials, Irish brand Mother Reusables create sustainable stainless steel and copper bottles that are the chicest way to keep coffee hot and water cold while you sit at your desk or take a stroll around the park, again.

If permanent doom is messing up your sleep schedule, you’re not alone. RenSkincare.ie has just landed, meaning it’s just got easier to buy the highly effective cult skincare brand, including the & Now To Sleep Pillow Spray, €23, a lavender spray for pillows and bed linen that’ll relax you and promote a better night’s sleep. Irish wellness pioneer Jo Browne has also added a 100% organic bamboo sleep mask that completely blocks out light to her offering. Finally, & Other Stories have partnered with Le Petit Trou to create an 11-piece collection of soft underthings and sleepwear for lounging around in luxury or hopefully, to soothe you into a restful sleep.
