As you all might know I go on holiday on Friday, I can’t even explain how excited and nervous I am to fly back to the Big Apple and see old friends. Of course it is time to celebrate, I will be spending my first ever Thanks Giving in America. Fingers crossed to look forward to many many more visits ahead.

Straight after I get back I have a few days in England then heading back to Hong Kong and China for a week. Can you believe how much I have fitted in before Xmas. Most of my blog will be queued. If I don’t get to any of your messages I promise to over the Christmas Break.

I hope for all you Americans you have a lovely Thanks Giving. I can’t WAIT to tell you what shenanigans I get up to. For all those enjoying a drink tonight, raise your glass for me, for a safe journey.

I braved it and went for the chop! What do you think? It’s been a long time coming but I’ve wanted short hair for so long.

Over the last couple of months I have started to change my habbits for the better. I know I love junk food and half of the time I am too tired to remove my makeup properly. But I have kicked this to the curb pre new year and decided to take better care of myself.

I started with making easy changes to my diet adding in tonns of veg to every single meal. My favourite are – asparagus, spinach, peppers and mushrooms they go with everything too. But with any diet change comes flaws. My face has decided to have breakout after breakout and my t-zone is covered with sore red spots. Which is ironic as when eating bag after bag of Harribo I have a clear complexion. I am determined to work through it until the breakouts disappear. I’m hoping it will only take a week or two

To reward myself I popped into The Selfridges. Not only is it great to eat well but I thought that it was the perfect time to have a new skincare routine, especially as winter is coming up and I’m flying a lot between now and January. I went to the Clinique counter and was served by Lynda, she was really helpful and honest about what products would suit my skin.

I ended up going for a small set of 3-step which is just face soap, clarifying lotion and daily mouisteriser. I got given a couple of free products too – make-up remover and 7 day daily scrub. Being as impatient as I am I opened them on the first opportunity I could.

Make-up Remover – Although this was just one of my freebies I love how easily it removes all the foundation and dirt from my skin. It’s a really oily texture and glides about the face. I am definitely

Face soap – This is nice and easy to use with just warm water and a flannel. I don’t find the product much different to other brands though at the moment.

Clarifying lotion – I really don’t like the smell of this. It works very similar to a toner, there to get deeper into your pores. It is surprising how well it works, certainly going to be a product I stick with.

Mouisteriser – This is my favourite out of the pack I love the smell and texture (not too thick or runny) It’s leaves my face looking rather greasy but only for a few hours.

It’s best to do this all in the evening rather than morning as it leaves my face so greasy/shiny. Once I wake up my skin has absorbed it all. I hope that during the colder months that it keeps my face looking fresh and hydrated! Overall I’m really pleased with the products.
