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…
My eyes are not quite so wide open or so decorated but that doesn’t mean I don’t depend on a product or two.
I wanted to ask you something?
I have this thing about the eyebrows.
I am perfectly content to persevere with the hair growing grey (well almost, I would be fibbing if I didn’t admit to some moments of indecision) but when it comes to my eyebrows that is another story.
I cannot have grey eyebrows.
They are confronting and I am sure they frighten everyone around me if a few sneak out to play. I like the look of silver hair and dark brows; the hair is natural but the eyebrows take work.
An embarrassing admission and I would love to know if you feel the same or I am alone in my eyebrow peculiarity.
