Quick update from the beauty side… my obsession with Japanese skincare brand SK-II reached new heights. I went from treating myself to their famous masks (click here) and now I’m using the whole skincare line after stockpiling them in Japan!

I must say I’m very allergic to pesky and aggressive fragrance sales people but you know what, I had a very pleasant experience yesterday at Barney’s. I popped by the store yesterday afternoon in between meetings to pick up a bottle of Un Bois Vanille (my favourite from Serge Lutens). I had a few minutes to spare so I asked one of the guys for another recommendation. A few spritzing and whiffing happened and voila, I ended up buying a bottle of Datura Noir as well. It’s really, really, REALLY good. Trust.
