Hey FROW Fam! How’s your week been? Have you been tuning in to watch the new season of Winter Love Island? We are loving some of the looks that were served on the first night. Did you know that some of the islanders were rocking pre-loved Prada, Diesel and Reiss pieces from eBay? Sustainable fashion is the future, and we love to see it! Speaking of things we love to see, what are our thoughts on Miley Cyrus’ new single ‘Flowers’… and all the easter eggs hidden in the music video – what do you think of throwing shade where shade is due? Discuss with us on our twitter @frowmagazine.
Regardless, it’s time to leave the drama at the door because this week we have (yet another) super exciting line-up for you; from sleek and stylish gym-wear from GYMSHARK and Whitney Simmons, to MUA’s dreams being answered as Sephora is officially set to open a flagship store in London and the ‘material girl’ herself, Madonna, launching her global tour!
