Yerbaé has taken on its next project with a sprinkle of autumn and has produced the new PSL (Pumpkin Spiced Latte) with a twist. The twist is, of course, a large dose of energy and the added bonus being the healthier option to the OG pumpkin-flavoured wonder. 

Yerbaé Pumpkin Spice Energy concoction is created with 160mg of natural caffeine from yerba mate, a South American herb and swirled in with numerous plant-based ingredients. This version of a PSL is naturally sweetened and boasts of zero calories, zero sugar, and zero sucralose. With the superlatives of gluten-free, vegan and keto-friendly, it’s no wonder that Pumpkin Spice Energy is the newest health drink of choice.

The fragrance company that created the sensual Baccarat Rouge has released their newest scent, the 724 Fragrance. Maison Francis Kurkdjian, founded by Francis Kurkdjian, has done it again, creating a perfume that harmonises effervescence and expensive taste into one bottle. 

This fragrance has notes of bergamot, mandarin, jasmine and musk, creating a light citrus and floral scent. Inspired by the freshness of “New York laundries at the break of day”, 724 boasts of big-city business. Just as everyone described Baccarat Rouge as “intoxicating and sensual”, so too does the 724 fragrance pulse with magnetic energy. Right now, it’s available in MECCA from $182- $588 depending on size.

Rounding out our drop of the week is the newest drop from Nike, the Dunk Low FUR & BLING is an homage to the uggs and rhinestones of the early 2000’s. Although released for the upcoming Northern Hemisphere winter, the FUR & BLING is a great way to stay cosy through yet another La Ninã summer, with white fur detailing and beige overlays. 

The colour scheme will match any outfit, and what can be better than the added embellishments at the laces? With golden charms, gems and ribbons, this shoe is next on the backstep into the 2000’s (after low-rise jeans of course!). The Nike Dunk Low FUR & BLING priced at $110 USD, will likely drop in the coming months.
