To try now: Beauty from CHANEL Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2021

This past January 26th, CHANEL held their Haute Couture Spring Summer 2021 show at Paris’ Grand Palais (the Maison’s venue of choice, I might add) and even with all the Covid safety measures in place, there was clearly an air of joy & unity present. The theme was that of a family wedding where generations all gathered to share the love, while the crowning moment was the bride (naturally), who came in on a white horse … as one does. But despite every single breathtaking look that came down the runway, I was captivated by the effortless beauty — beauty that may have leaned on the minimal style (we can’t compete with the fashion, n’est-ce pas?), but also so very wearable by all.

Guerlain · Abeille Royale

Two things that I am incredibly passionate about, are skincare and animals. So when this package from Guerlain arrived containing the rebooted versions of their Abeille Royale moisturizers, I was ecstatic. Why? Well, because not have I had amazing results from their past skincare ranges, but I couldn’t be happier to support a brand who has taken such strides to protect our world’s bee populations. For me, this is a total win-win.

CHANEL · Huile Velours & Coco Mademoiselle Intense

Launched last year, Coco Mademoiselle Intense continues to win hearts over to this day, because let’s face it: we all want to channel (see what I did there? lol) a little bit of that coveted French chic, n’est-ce pas? The newest addition to the Coco Mademoiselle family is the Huile Velours/Velvet Body Oil and all I can say is, you had me at … velvet.
