Tweet for a (Marc Jacobs) treat
The first of its kind, Marc Jacobs Fragrances are opening a pop-up shop, but don't expect to exchange cash, as all payments will be taken in form of tweets using the hashtag #MJDaisyChain. Visitors will be treated to drinks, an area to lounge and free wifi. In honour of the brand's new Daisy Dream scent, there will be a live Daisy photo booth and Vine booth and a Marc Jacobs nail bar. Those that post the most creative photos are in with a chance to win a Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag. The event of dreams.
Daisy Marc Jacobs Pop-up Tweet Shop , 15th- 17th August, 10am-8pm (Friday/Saturday) and 10am-6pm (Sunday), 4 East Plazza, Covent Garden WC2E 8HD

Treat yourself to the latest beauty breakthrough
Battle the hassle of clumped lashes with Rimmel’s new Wonder’full Mascara with Argan Oil. This innovative ingredient works to separate lashes and leaves them smoother, conditioned and feeling incredibly lightweight. Thanks to its new Ultra-Flexible Brush, each individual is perfectly defined from root to tip and doesn’t have that “hard feel” which most mascaras leave you with. Available in classic black, extreme black and waterproof, we love this gorgeous new wonder product for its care and repair properties.

Pack a hamper and head down for a special (and huge) picnic in the Olympic Park. The event will be hosting a range of free activities for the whole family, including storytelling, treasure hunts, arts and crafts, face painting, cookery demonstrations, puppet shows, sports and more. And once the kids have raced through all of that, take them to the Tumbling Bay Playground to keep them busy. It has everything from giant treehouses and play fountains to wall climbing and sand pits.

By Terry’s Ombre Blackstar is all you need to go from drab to glam. Formulated with Tahitian Black Pearl, this revolutionary eyeshadow comes in an easy-to-apply pen applicator that says goodbye to annoying pencil sharpenings, thanks to its twisty end. Its creamy formula means that one swipe across the eyelid will leave you with beautiful and effortless eye makeup that can be built from sheer to dramatically intense. It doesn’t smudge either, eliminating the need for a primer, and can be mixed with other colours across its beautiful 14-shade collection.

Dine on champers and oysters
New seafood experience Randall & Aubin are telling you to forget about recommended wines in favour of champagne. Their choice of fizz will be served in stream loads as guests can select from a menu of the best catches of the day, including the restaurant’s signature Randall & Aubin Haddock & Chips with Tartare Sauce and Minted Peas or Half Lobster Roasted in Garlic Butter. Or if you want to go all out, the venue recommends a Half Bottle of Hébrart Premier Cru to wash down their Fruits de Mer Platter, a plate loaded with Rock Oysters, a Whole Crab, Atlantic Shrimps, Diver Picked Scallops, Cockles, Whelks, Cherrystone Clams, Mediterranean Prawns and Green Lipped Mussels.
