New Year's Eve can become a bit of a ritual- dressing up, drinking and sleeping for the entirety 
of January 1st. This year (am I old, now?) I'm not as excited as I normally am. I feel a bit like 
when I realised my birthday was just a day on my 21st. One thing I will relish in however, is 
my beauty ritual with some new favourites. NARS blush, Tom Ford highlighter, Jo Malone 
scent and MAC lipstick can never go wrong (oh, and some eyebrow gel of course).

Happy New Year!

Jumper and jeans Zara, Boots Hobbs, Mini Marie bracelet Monica Vinader, Gold bracelet Bridget Wheatley, Bag Kokosina,

I'm a big leather fiend. I'm an even bigger 'black leather bag, handmade in Italy' fiend. I couldn't
resist the offerings of Kokosina on Etsy. A satchel come boxy rucksack for a boxing day stroll.

After some choice about colour I (obviously) went for black. Safe and great for everyday
and evening. A similar decision was made when I was choosing my new Monica Vinader
bracelet (hasn't been taken off my arm since I put it on in the shop), the white gold Mini
Marie bracelet was most likely my favourite Christmas present.

This is where I was lucky enough to be for a quick stop over this past weekend: Cordee des 
Alpes. Blue skies, bright sunlight reflecting off the snow met us on arrival, and (perhaps 
more importantly) a warm, inviting spa was waiting upon our arrival at the hotel. 

Although it was - like I said - a short stay, this was the perfect relax and regroup I needed before 
the Christmas holidays which are always far more busy and stressful than you plan them to be. 
Plus, I managed to ski for the first time in 12 years! (I fell over once, yes).

Georgia May Jagger backstage at Giles SS14

I wasn't expecting to be blown away by Georgia- when you've seen so many photos of one 
model it can be almost under-whelming to see them in real life. However with Georgia May 
it was almost the opposite, she was wonderful to photograph and seemed the most relaxed 
model backstage (no doubt celebrity parents have helped her keep her cool).

A couple of shots from inside my place at the moment. Overflowing work at every corner, 
trying to sort out who needs what for Christmas and where to store it all. Looking forward 
to a relaxed weekend of eating too many croissants (already ticked off the list), clearing out 
some of my room to make more space and eating (again) at my friends' food stall in Brixton 
this evening.

If anyone is going Christmas shopping: Good Luck. Stay Alive.

Sitting on my shelf right now- the new Creme de la Mer Treatment Lotion, Rodial x Mary 
Katranzou candle and a beautiful silver ring my sister gave me from Etsy. Speaking of Etsy, 
in a panic of 'I have no bags life is so hard' late last night (#firstworldproblems) I bought 
this little gem and cannot wait for it to arrive.
