NECESSITY

In the bag
Lia Quigley is a Madrid-based Irish print designer, who has recently added a line of bags to her Made Obvious clothing line. In keeping with the company’s sustainable values, some styles are created using wool sourced from a local farmer. The fabric bags are made using one piece of fabric, so the handle can be reused with different prints. LH

NECESSITY

Hydration in the bag
There’s nothing like an upset stomach to ruin a perfectly good summer break or day out. Even simple dehydration can spoil things for young and old alike, so these sachets of MyPro DiaCare are worth throwing in a suitcase or handbag. A two-sided sachet includes both rehydrating salts and digestion-friendly probiotics, which has a mild orange flavour that shouldn’t offend anyone in the family. SC

NECESSITY

Walk the walk
If the idea of a meaningful pilgrimage walk appeals to you but you just can’t face an airport, the Donegal Camino is back for a second year by popular demand. And, yes, popular demand means get it booked before it’s sold out. With the goal of raising funds for Cancer Care West, Donegal, you can sign up for one, three or seven days of walking and hiking through the stunning countryside from Inishowen through the Slieve Russell Cliffs, Derryveagh and the Bluestacks, before finally putting your feet up in Killybegs. There’s even a ‘mystery island tour’, which includes kayaks and paddle boards, and, of course, one of the Camino’s founding fathers, hotelier and TV personality Noel Cunningham will be joining. SC

NOTION

Milk round
Sunscreen, sweat and, if we’re lucky, sea and sand can all lead to skin that simply needs a good scrub. There’s no need to get rough with it, however. Dermalogica’s new Daily Milkfoliant is the sensitive sibling to the brand’s best-selling Daily Microfoliant. Like the original, it’s a powder you mix with water to a frothy lather that polishes away dead surface skin cells to leave a refined and smoother texture. Both formulations are gentle enough to use every day, as it’s only the aforementioned top layer that’s exfoliated. The new Milkfoliant includes oat and coconut in the mix to soothe and calm the complexion. It also comes in a travel-handy 13g size (€18). SC
