ParisYou can imagine my delight when I was asked to visit Paris, not once but twice in the past month. I mean – it’s every girls dream. First, for the unveiling of Nina Ricci’s latest scent, Nina L’Eau and just ten days later, with L’Oréal for an intensive few days of hair academy. All in all, a recipe for sheer beauty bliss!
