So excited to see Jo Malone in person talking about her experiences and introducing the new Jo Loves fragrance range. Jo Malone started as a facialist and built a global brand and so for me is a great inspiration. Quite moving to hear about her incredible support from Evelyn Lauder during her battle with cancer, especially following the sad passing of Evelyn, such a true icon in the beauty world.
I often sit on the judging panel for press and industry beauty awards and this year I was lucky enough to be involved in Stylist’s skincare awards. I attended a lovely morning breakfast ceremony in the company of quite a few familiar faces and shared my table with the editor Lisa and Dr Sam Bunting and Catherine Bossom from Space NK, which proved for some great industry chat. Stylist is always a brilliant read and really hot on beauty and skincare so it was exciting to be involved and test all the nominated products.
What a fabulous way to start the week!
