In case you missed it, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner married Joe Jonas over the weekend, celebrating their gorgeous second wedding ceremony at Chateau de Torreau.

The pair got married the first time in a low-key setting in Las Vegas earlier this year, with Diplo adding the wedding to his Instagram Live.

The chateau dates back to the 17th century and survived the French Revolution, and miraculously is available to rent on Airbnb.

What does this mean? We can get a sneaky inside look of the stunning castle and it's surrounding environment, that's what it means.

The beautiful property is set on 20 acres of grounds and features a swimming pool, vegetable farm, tennis courts and water fountains. 

Turner was spotted nearby last week sporting Dior's 'We should all be feminists' t-shirt and an all-white ensemble. Herself and Joe look fairly loved up on their trip to France, but we're not jealous at all. Not even a tiny bit. Honestly.

The chateau is a cool €4,200 per night for just one guest, so if you're bringing a gang of friends you may need to take out a loan…

The property on Airbnb is described lavishly;

“Château de Tourreau is one of the most exquisite private estates in Provence." Well, that much is clear.

"Within easy reach of the Provençal “gold triangle” (Avignon, St Rémy and Aix-en-Provence) beautifully restored to reflect the 18th century, this majestic estate has a sophisticated refinement, enhanced by provencal furnitures."

"Once the gates have closed, you find yourselves in a world of your own, a world of legend and history, as if you were in an ancient royal palace of which you were the new privileged king."

Oh damn, we want that privileged queen lifestyle.

A-listers were invited to the celebrity wedding, of course, such as the groom's brothers and their wives. Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, Kevin and Danielle Jonas and fellow GOT stars.

Priyanka stunned in a pink Sabyasachi sareeposing up a storm on Instagram.

It was rumoured for months that #Jophie were planning a second wedding in France, and the couple confirmed their Parisian trip with a snap of them outside the Eiffel Tower.

The happy couple announced their engagement in October 2017, after dating since November of 2016. They were first spotted together at the MTV VMAs when Joe had his arm around her.

Anyone else putting in a rental bid for this chateau? We'll bring our air mattress if it makes the price cheaper…It's currently available to house 15 guests, and has 11 beds and NINE baths.

Choosing that very special beauty product at the week can be difficult, there is an extensive list of brands and exciting new collections involved.

This week, however, it has never been easier to decide what our faves are; L'Occitane's new lip and mega mask collection has absolutely swept the competition away.

We're already huge fans of the legendary Provence-inspired company, which prides itself on creating high quality products and preserving the natural beauty of the environment.

As if we didn't love them before, now L'Occitane are releasing their incredible lip collection, featuring moisturising balms, scrubs and lipstick infused with fruits, vegetables and herbs from Provence and the Mediterranean Basin.

Alongside their unprecedented new lip care and make-up collection, they're also gifting the world with their new mega masks; one to exfoliate for radiance, one which soothes the skin and one that purifies it.

Words can't explain how excited we were to test out these goodies, and they truly live up the hype. Between the freshness of their natural ingredients and their ability to cater for all skin types, what's not to love?

1. Lip scrub collection in 'Marmalade Kiss', 'Raspberry Crush' and 'Fabulous Fig':

Apply their new lip scrubs to damp lips, gently massage and then rinse off with water for the perfect base before moisturising. They truly are the perfect preparation ritual before using lip balm and lipstick.

L'Occitane's 'Marmalade Kiss' delicious lip scrub contains Vitamin E and is enriched with pomegranate oil, pomelo, mandarin extract and carrot for exfoliating perfection. 

If you're looking for a sweeter taste to be left on your mouth, 'Raspberry Crush' and 'Fabulous Fig' have extracts from the fruit which bears their name, and we honestly can't get enough of the trio.

Coming in at just €16 each, the lip scrubs won't break the bank to get your mouth feeling fresh and fruity. You can nab all three scrubs on their website now, before they're out of stock.

This duo are truly the most iconic way to soften up your lips this summer. As well as the Fruity Lip Perfector and 3-in-1 Delicious Multi-Balm, L'Occitane have added four fruity lip balms to deliver hydration and keep your mouth feeling exquisitely soft, for just €22 each.

Vitamin-rich fruits from Provence can be captured in treats for your lips, with all four delicious tinted lip balms boasting a creamy texture and sunny scent. The four flavours come in a range of colours and tastes; 'Miss Grenadine', 'Pink Calisson', sunny orange 'Carrot Fizz' and soft purple 'Gimme Mauve'.

The Fruity Lip Perfector is ideal for moisturising and adjusting the pH of your lips to show off their natural colour. It comes in a handy stick form, and uses a plumping formula for enhanced texture. We love how the yellow shade turns pink when it touches your lips, such a gorgeous treat.

The 3-in-1 Delicious Multi-Balm is the perfect primer to prepare the lips for lipstick, as a softening balm or a rich overnight mask. Long-lasting nourishment has never been so easy to achieve, using the beneficial properties of a blend of botanical oils.

L'Occitane's groundbreaking new fruity lipsticks are beautifully colourful and smell positively gorgeous.

The range features nude, subtle shades for keeping it fresh and light, orange and scarlet tones for turning the heat up, and pink and violet hues for making an impression.

Each of the eight shades has something special, but our personal faves are 'Flamingo Kiss' and 'Provence Calling'. The fuchsia and purple colour splashes matched with fruity scents and ingredients are what make these goodies our faves this week.

For only €22, these lipsticks are absolutely unmissable. Head over to L'Occitane's website to choose your favourites.
