From dazzling smiles to stylish gifting inspo, check out Checklist’s 10 top tips for beauty and fashion.
Time for sustainable style
New season, new watch. But don’t just settle for any old timepiece; opt for something that could make a difference to the world around us.
Bering’s Solar Watch collection is environmentally friendly because it draws its energy from a source that is infinitely available – light!
And it’s not just sunlight it depends on, either. Any kind of light, including that from an artificial source, can be used to keep this watch running. The Bering Solar Watch converts all light into electrical energy via its inbuilt solar cell and stores this in a rechargeable second battery.
However, this is just an energy reserve. Once fully charged, you can keep this watch going for 6-12 months – even if you store it in the dark that entire time.
As well as its clever, green technology, the watch is also stunning to look at. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal watch face, brushed stainless steel finishing and the finest Milanaise or calfskin straps round off its unique design.

Skincare with heart
Naturally sourced, skin-reviving products shouldn’t come at the expense of our natural world. That’s the ethos behind Douvall’s – a leader in natural argan oil skincare, haircare, make-up and wellness.
Douvall’s has featured in some of the most high-profile stores, having launched in Harrods before featuring in Fortnum & Mason. Their range of luxurious and innovative products are not only made of the highest quality, but their good-for-you ingredients are also responsibly sourced.
From hydrating moisturisers to nourishing hair oils, all products across the Douvall’s range harness the phenomenal benefits of argan oil, which is ethically sourced from a Moroccan women’s cooperative. Not only is Douvall’s the sole producer of this argan oil, they are also the first to cold press the oil.
So why is argan oil so good? It boasts an extremely high content of vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids and is renowned for giving skin a fresh, dewy glow.
Plus, because Douvall’s uses 100% pure, raw, first cold pressed, organic argan oil, their products are non-allergenic, fast absorbing, light weight and non-greasy, making them perfect for all skin and hair types.

Nothing boosts one’s confidence like a perfect smile. Straight, glistening pearly whites not only look great but can make you feel good too.

With over 13 years, experience, Dr Laing has the expertise and experience to help clients improve their smiles, whatever their age.
She explains: ‘My aim is to give you an entirely personalised service, with a realistic plan and a stunning result at the end. Orthodontics is all about making the most of your natural teeth, involving the client in designing their smile, and using the most aesthetic braces to achieve this.’
To do this, Dr Laing uses the latest orthodontic technology, such as precise Itero 3D photographic scanning techniques meaning the end of messy moulds.
She also uses all types of cosmetic braces, such as Invisalign, to straighten your teeth to perfection, whatever your age. Measures like these, combined with whitening, make the most of your natural teeth for a gorgeous grin that’s authentic to you – rather than veneers.
