Amaluna at Royal Albert Hall The genius of Cirque du Soleil shines at every moment of this incredible show. You’re best off booking a box and enjoying the gorgeous catering courtesy of Rhubarb as an extra treat.

Hemp Hearts by Manitoba Harvest I put these raw, shelled hemp seeds in my green smoothies or on my salads, and I even eat them straight from the bag. With 10g protein and 2.5g Omega 3s in three tablespoons, why not?

Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey 1934–1954 NYC’s Museum of Modern Art is exhibiting 60 works – many never before seen – from its extensive collection of Pollocks, making this a show to marvel at.

The Life Negroni by Leigh Banks (£20, Spinach Publishing) Banks' book is an ode to this lovely cocktail, which is ideal for winter parties, warming everyone up and keeping them jolly through dinner.

Rationale This Australian skincare line recently launched its ‘essential six’ products in the UK, which include two layering serums for day and a proceramide emulsion for night that gently cleans away impurities.

HIFU facial High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is the latest thing for those of us who could use a bit of a facelift. Results appear over two to three months, with skin appearing firmer and less ’tired’.

Gemstones and Glaciers with Remote Lands This luxe Asian outfit has created a brilliant itinerary for mid-June. Explore Yakutsk, the city of gold and diamonds, then sail to Lena Pillars National Park to experience both a traditional shamanic ritual and a celebration of Ysyakh, the sun festival marking the Yakutian New Year.

Rainbow cookies My girls are obsessed with making these! Here’s the recipe:

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
3 1/2 tbsp cream cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
Food colouring (purple, pink, turquoise)
Silver candy balls
Edible glitter

Mix all ingredients and separate into three balls. Blend each ball with one colour and freeze for 20 minutes. Separate each ball into 8 portions and roll the three colours together into a snake. Cut each snake in half and twirl into a mound. Decorate (a lot!) and bake for 15 minutes at 190°C.
