The five best bits: Holy moly it’s been an amazing week. One of the main highlights was a whirlwind trip to Paris for the #ClairesPFW party, with the lovely ladies from Claire’s. The party was so much fun and it was amazing to get the chance to see Paris mid-way through Fashion Week. The city is quite literally buzzing with fashionable vibes and it was so exciting to see + being a tourist for the day in Paris was great; I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun taking cheesy photo after cheesy photo + eating pancakes (ok, crepes) in front of the Eiffel Tower on Pancake Day. No better place to chow down on a nutella pancake in my opinion + a visit from my friend Gabby who made the trip from the US to come and hang for the week. Not only is it ace to hang out with her but it also means I get to prolong my touristy fun. We’ve done Buckingham Palace, Abbey Road, the London Eye and it’s been epic + having a week away from work. It’s been manic and I’ve had little to no rest but boy did I need a bit of a break!

Beauty product pick of the week: Caudalie Beauty Elixir – this stuff is an absolute dream for the weary-eyed traveller. Just a couple of spritzes and my face felt so refreshed and reinvigorated, even after several hours of hungover snoozing on the Eurostar

On the agenda: Back to work after what has been the most brilliant week away. Ho hum

News flash: I think Spring may have made an appearance ladies and gents. Don’t quote me on that but I’m pretty sure that no-jacket weather we’ve seen glimpses of this week herald its arrival

Pause for thought: With the above seasonal change in mind, I’m thinking a Spring clean might be in order, both physically and mentally. Now all I need is another week off to do it in…!

I hope you all have a lovely week!
