For those of you who follow me on instagram, you will know that I spent the past couple of 
weeks back in the UK, between my hometown and London. Visiting friends, family, my 
favourite coffee and book shops and even an unprecedented sunny rooftop.

Join me for a walk around London in the full photo diary below.

Having grown up in Paris I had heard of the famous Dessange salon, but never had the chance
to experience it. Until a couple weeks ago that is - when I was invited to their Sydney salon
in Paddington.

When packing for a long haul flight and a couple weeks in England, I wanted to pack light. 
Multiple usage products were the name of the game.

It is coming up to a year since we left on our travels of Asia and Indonesia and whilst finding it 
hard to believe the time has gone so fast I also can't believe I hadn't yet posted the photos 
from Halong Bay in Vietnam. Located a couple hours drive north from Hanoi, we hopped on 
an overnight boat and explored the bay, beaches and caves for two days. If there was ever 
anywhere that was made to be a photo diary, this is it...

Landing on home soil and what felt inexplicably strange to return to now feels normal again.
I've been here a week now, and only have less than a week left so I'm taking advantage of
walking down some of my favourite streets, visiting my favourite markets and cafes and of
course, seeing all my favourite people.

beauty products, and Sachajuan is no exception...

More from my backstage experience at MBFWA.

I was lucky enough to attend the Daniel Avakian show, and beforehand I popped backstage to 
see what Lancôme were doing with the make-up...

 It's time for a travel post! I haven't done one in a while, and it's hard to believe that we embarked 
on our travels almost a year ago and even harder to believe I still haven't posted all the photos!
(Stay tuned, I'll be posting a couple more hotel reviews soon too).

This photo diary comes from Sapa, where we visited the incredible rice fields on the Chinese 
border of Northern Vietnam. I'd always dreamed of going here since seeing photos a couple
 of years ago, so it was great to tick this one of the bucket list...

 photo SKINCEUTICALS Hydrating B5 Masque Emma Hoareau skincare_zpsnwupjyvw.jpg

I found out that most skin problems stem from dehydration, so I decided to apply a hydrating 
mask every night for a week to see what difference it made. I used the Hydrating B5 Masque 
from Skinceuticals (I'd used to hydrating b5 serum before and been very impressed) and I have 
to say the difference is huge, my breakouts are less frequent and my skin has got that extra 
glow. It feels like such a simple, and enjoyable added step to my skincare regime.

Other hydrating masks I like - and use - are the Dermalogica skin hydrating masque and
