By Trisha Chawla & Divya Gursahani  July 9th, 2018

A fun make-up collaboration, boots to beat the rain, highly anticipated album drops, and a book of poetry to get your hands on. Have you followed the Instagram account @gryffindior yet? The page combines fiction and fashion; namely Harry Potter and the French luxury house Christian Dior. Or have you tried India’s first glitter brew? 

And if you loved Ariana Grande’s voice and newfound edge in her album Dangerous Woman, pop in those earphones for her latest drop, Sweetener. Here are ten things you shouldn’t miss out on this season.

Ten things that are #NowTrending this month:  

Read

When Florence + The Machine’s lead singer Florence Welch comes out with a book of poetry and sketches, you have to get your hands on it. Useless Magic: Lyrics And Poetry is a peek into the mind of the creative genius whose band just dropped its fourth album, High As Hope, which features collaborations with the likes of Jamie XX and Sampha.


Go

Every July, wildebeest undertake the great migration from Serengeti in Tanzania to Maasai Mara in Kenya. There’s no better time to tick the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros elephant, and Cape buffalo) off your list.


Drink

Beer-swirling with edible glitter is taking over Insta, as breweries are spiking their blend with safe-to-eat shine. Find India’s first glitter brew at The Boston Butt, Mumbai. If you’re a health fanatic, skip it in favour of homegrown juicery Raw Pressery’s new probiotic range instead.


Try

Plogging, a Scandinavian fitness craze, helps you reduce your carbon footprint with every step. Derived from a combination of jogging and "plocka upp", Swedish for "to pick", this activity involves picking up all the litter you encounter on your morning sprint. All you need is running gear, a cotton bag and a dedicated group of buddies to start cleaning up your community.


Indulge

Collagen fights wrinkles and repairs tissue damage — and it now comes in the form of a drink! Toss those creams and serums, and sip your way to glowing skin with bottled offerings from Skilixir. A bottle a day keeps the skin doctor away.


Buy

OG crayon company Crayola has dipped into its big box of colours for its first-ever beauty line on Asos.com. We’re talking multicoloured mascaras, colour-changing lipsticks and shimmery highlighters that span 95 shades and come in the brand’s iconic yellow and green boxes. 


Shop

The monsoon is here and it’s time to invest in some rainwear. Stock up on a pair of ultra-luxurious waterproof boots to keep your feet dry. We love the plaid versions at Burberry, as well as the bright, floral printed boots at Gucci.


Follow

Instagram account @gryffindior combines fiction and fashion; namely Harry Potter and the French luxury house Christian Dior. With a little snazzy editing, your favourite witches and wizards
forego their hand-me-down robes for the haute couture creations of Maria Grazia Chiuri. Think fringed yarn cardigans and metallic turtlenecks hot off the S/S 2018 runway.


Listen

If you loved Ariana Grande’s voice and newfound edge in her album Dangerous Woman, pop in those earphones for her latest drop, Sweetener. The singer now returns with a triumphant house-inflected album that describes the brighter side of life, with relatable lyrics and dance-floor ready beats.


Watch

Get ready for romance as actors Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter make their anticipated screen debut with Dhadak. There’s also Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the sequel to the hit 2008 musical, where the now pregnant protagonist (Sophie) sets out to discover more about her mother’s past.
