Hurray we are in 2016 and finally I have been able to spend a few days at home with my family, chilling on the sofa in my pyjamas and drinking hot chocolate before I have to fly out in two days time again!
As I mentioned before, things just before Christmas were super busy, so busy in fact that I still hadn’t done any Christmas shopping until 2pm on Christmas Eve! One of the most exciting things that we did in the build up to Christmas was to go to Paris. Our trip was very last minute but it was important to go as we had some great meetings and some very important people to meet, so when things finally got organised although I couldn’t wait for the trip, I did have a mini freak out because I hadn’t had time to go to the hairdressers in months and now I was going to have to go to the style capital of the world with horrendous hair!*
*When I mean horrendous I mean regrowth so long people start calling it ombre…
You can imagine my relief when I found out about Gwenelda a mobile beauty and hairdressers service, that anyone can book through their app or on their website. It is the same price as the salon, but has the added advantage of professionals coming to your house, office or hotel, instead of you having to take a massive chunk out of your day to go. They offer all sorts of beauty treatments, from highlights, cut & blow dry to manicures, pedicures, waxing & threading and even massages! Thanks to Gwenelda I was able to work and pack right up until the appointment time and then once Flavia the hairdresser had arrived, I could just get my hair done at home in my living room, in my slippers whilst having a cup of coffee! Perfect!
I was a bit nervous getting my hair done by a new hairdresser, but Flavia was a pro and the end result was amazing! I chose the colours from her palette and then quick as a flash the foils were in and we were having a quick coffee and chat. Next time I thought I could get the treatment done with my friends, say organise a manicure/nail bar party or we could even get our hair done before going out clubbing on a Saturday, it was just so much fun! I felt like a true celeb. I shared my time on my Snapchat which you hopefully didn’t miss… I couldn’t recommend them enough, especially for those of you looking to have or to give a friend a real 5* experience.
Thanks to Gwenelda I was able to answer my final Christmas emails, pack my bags and then hit the centre for some last minute shopping. I was looking for a warm faux-fur coat for Paris that I found in Zara’s and which I can’t wait to show you! Some of my travel essentials for this trip were my Eva Tote, from Gym Tote, a super stylish sports/ luxury handbag that was perfect to taking my jewellery and my shoes in and I couldn’t leave for Paris without packing a splash of Chanel N5!
I can’t wait to share my trip with you, it was amazing and our meetings were so exciting, I can’t wait to be able to reveal it all to you soon!
Hair done, Next Stop Paris!!!
