la mer

After years of drifting by the la mer counter, gazing in true wonderment at all its aquatic splendour, last week i finally plunged into its opulent depths. Yep, oceanic metaphors aside, i have officially purchased my first ever crème de la mer product!

As I packed my suitcase on Boxing Day last year, preparing myself for our spur of the moment family getaway, I didn’t quite know what to expect. Admittedly, i’m always a little doubtful – and a tad testy – when i’m not packing sun cream. But isn’t that always how our most magical moments begin? You know, when … Continue reading montenegro
