From left to right, top to bottom:

Ryan Storer oxidised silver-plated Swarovski crystal earcuff, £220, net-a-porter.com. Any fierce female will relish rocking this.

Cannabis Candle, £37, Malin+Goetz. Far from smelling like a rasta’s dreads as you might expect, this cannabis candle is unexpectedly lovely, with rich, heady and woody aromas.

Tom Dixon copper-plated plum cocktail shaker, £95, Liberty. A stunning combination of style and substance. This not only looks beautiful but the design allows for a greater shaking area for drinks, meaning a better taste.

Capucana Cachaca, £35.45 for 70cl, thewhiskyexchange.com. Cachaca is a South American spirit similar to rum made from the distilled juice of the sugar cane used for mojitos and other classic cocktails.

Nutri-Define Superior Retexturising Serum, £86, Jurlique. Because any party girl worth her salt never lets excess show on her face.

The Do – Shake Shook Shaken. French/Finnish electro duo based in Paris. Triple score hipster points.

Marcasite grey crystal angel wing necklace, £21, galibardy.com. Art Deco inspired statement necklace from the boutique London jewellers.

Dark Rum Eau de Toilette, 150 euros, Malin+Goetz. This scent from the New York apothecary has top notes of bergamot, middle notes of rum and leather and a patchouli, amber and milk dry down. Distinctive and long lasting.

The Mixer’s Manual: The Cocktail Manual for Serious Drinkers by Dan Jones, £8.39, Waterstones. Features 150 cocktails from the classic to the contemporary illustrated with stylish retro pictures.

The Flavour Thesaurus by Niki Segnet, £15.19, Waterstones. The first ever “flavour thesaurus”, this book lists ingredient combinations from the classic to the bizarre, such as lemon and beef, blueberry and mushroom and watermelon and oyster. For flavour pioneers.
