Today I’m leaving Dubai for 10 days. First stop, Paris with CHANEL for the launch of La Montre Premiere collection, then I go on my merry way to London Fashion Week. You will hear from me throughout the week with travel updates, wardrobe looks and news fresh off the catwalk.


Goodbye light cotton nightwear, hello snug-as-a-bug English Rose print pyjamas and cashmere socks. With temperatures below freezing, I am not taking any chances.


A trip to the French capital would not be complete without a boucle box jacket, so of course I’ll take two.


Ensuring my nails were in tip top condition for the trip ahead, I popped by at N-bar for manicure using Essie’s Lollipop lacquer. When slathering Bonne Maman Blueberry preserve onto my croissant this morning, I noticed my fresh manicure for the trip matched the lid, fitting!


No suitcase of mine is complete without my lucky Gucci horseshoe charm bag tag. When you have a week of fashion shows, parties, meetings and interviews to attend the last thing I need is a missing wardrobe.

Two suitcases, a carry on and my Reiss felt hat and I’ll be on my merry way – au revoir!
