A beauty junkie in…Paris

Last week I had one of the absolute best experiences I’ve had since I started blogging – something I genuinely had to start pinching myself for since the invite arrived in my inbox. I went on a fabulous little jaunt to Paris with one of my most loved beauty brands – Clarins.

Whilst in Paris I went to an international bloggers event to take a look at some of the new bits coming from the brand soon (a BB cream and new shades of Instant Light Lip Perfector…more on these in another post) plus to pick up some tips and tricks. But first I thought I’d go all photo heavy and share some of the shots from my time in Paris…

Woo! Paris!
Woo! Sephora!

Chill time in the amazing bathtub…
Pancakes and fresh grapefruit juice in bed… I could get used to this.

As close to soaking up some proper culture as I managed…

Proper hot chocolate….diet starts tomorrow.

Of course I have much more to share on my trip, but I thought this little photo (heavy) diary might be a good place to start in sharing the details with you all! Keep your eyes peeled for another Paris post with more details on the latest stuff coming from Clarins!

I was a guest of Clarins for the trip to Paris.

    BLECH. I lived in Paris for quite some time and was duped into trying Angelina’s famous hot chocolate. I’m used to hot cocoa, but this hot chocolate was like a bar of chocolate melted into a glass with a little milk! SO rich and thick, I guess it could be some people’s thing but it was so expensive and not to my taste at all! La duree brunch, now there you have me.
    Clarins collection looks so lovely, I want that pink lipstick so badly!
