Today I headed to Greek Street for a press day and the most delicious catch-up over a cream tea of scones for lunch in Soho’s Secret Tea Room – ok, we had a few finger sandwiches first – but real clotted cream I will do any time of day. I was hoping my face was still a little plumped up from last night’s trial of the new Perricone facial just launched at the George Northwood hair salon.
Dr Perricone is one of those celeb beauty gurus in the US, from what I understand, and is all about feeding yourself beautiful, with lots of Omega-6 rich foods and a range of parabens-free skincare products which tackle ageing skin. 15 minutes with Swedish beauty expert Emina and her massage technique was a pretty revelatory experience; forget botox and fillers, this is the way forward for when needed!
So I am absolutely loving the new Stan Smiths and adore how good they look with skinnies. Which brings me onto a sudden realization; skinnies really are the jeans of autumn – they keep you warmer clinging so tight, but also as you’re likely to be wearing a big coat/jacket/blanket scarf on top you need something neater and less billowy below. But with skinnies it’s all about the quality, you can’t be doing with sagginess at the knees, so one or two really decent pairs are the way to go. These black ones are by British brand Hudson, and the quality is so good I don’t have that nervous moment when kneeling for too long, the stretch just pings back!
