From hidden-gems to places to people-watch, from bookshops to beauty spots – here is some inspiration, celebrating the independents in our local neighborhoods around the world.

This week’s selection has been curated by Bronze Avery, a recording artist, songwriter, and producer that creates unique, genre-less sounds made for movement. He is also the winner of the first-ever Billboard NXT competition — a first-of-its-kind singing competition designed to discover the next great unsigned artist using TikTok.

RUXWOOD empowers its consumers through their app, BLACKBOOK, which acts as a journal to monitor and reflect on sensual experiences.
