Having been on the road almost consistently for the past few months, I am revelling in having time in London to plant some seeds and get some real work done.. to enjoy life’s mundane tasks like washing and cooking at home… early nights in my own bed!! Never take for granted clean sheets day.
Having moved to Chelsea late last year, I have so loved exploring my new area and seeing London from an entirely new perspective. Last week I had the chance to shoot at The Number Sixteen Hotel in South Kensington – a space in which I often hide away to work or host meetings. This hotel is the embodiment of what I love most about the British culture – it is refined, chic, cheeky and yet elegantly traditional.
I am so often asked about my skin care regime.. Spending so much time abroad and in transit (and rapidly approaching 30!) means my skin has started to need some attention. I’ve been notoriously ignorant and lazy in the past but decided it was time I take responsibility. I was introduced to Rationale by my dear friend Katie last year and, as always with me and skincare, hesitantly and somewhat cynically walked into my first appointment. I have always been pretty lucky with my skin but since using these products, my skin has truly never looked better. I really don’t need make up, just mascara. My skin glows and any concerns have cleared up. Most of all, I thoroughly enjoy the routine of taking a few minutes in the morning and before bed at night to make an effort and look after myself. This is not sponsored or paid, this is my honest experience and I’m just happy to share it with you. My sister has also been on the six step regime and, despite living in Shanghai where the pollution is terrible and travelling almost as much as I do, has loved the results. Her skin, too, has never looked better. The serums are quite strong and are only appropriate for certain skin types but if you are interested, please try Rationale – and ask for Katie! xHermione.
