This week I have been a little behind the pace.
A combination of jet lag and getting organised after what seems like years away.
Somehow I feel we have only just finished our holiday cheer and yet here we are in the first week of February.
If this is the beginning, 2016 is going to be a quick paced year.
It’s that holiday time of the year when time is the last thing we have for ourselves.
Ambitious plans to look our best go out the window as preparations for the holidays become gargantuan. With the best organisation in the world, the greatest of intentions and yet, I still running around feeling completely disorganised.
I have so many large and small jobs to finish before my little band of merrymakers descend on Provence that the chances of a quiet moment to glamorise myself is looking slim. Lazy afternoons watching Christmas movies will have to wait until after the 25th.
The next few days are about decorating, flowers, food and gift-wrapping.
Travelling is super tough on the skin and it means skin care becomes even more important.
Factor in dehydration from the long flight; a lack of sleep and over indulgence and the first place to suffer is the skin.
Trying to look fresh and rested, glowing and healthy is hard when your body is screaming and your face looks like it’s done ten rounds in the ring.
None of it really matters of course but when you catch up with friends, meet new ones and attend meetings it is natural to want to look your best.
Last time we spoke beauty I mentioned a serum I found in my French pharmacy.
Since then I have been using other products from their range and have to tell you I think I am onto something…
