Finding Pink Doors in London

London will always be one of my favourite cities in the world. It has so much to it: good food, great shopping and beautiful architecture. I managed to tick all three of those things from my list when I went to visit my friend Demi a couple of weekends ago. We enjoyed a beautiful Christmas-themed dinner at The Mirror Room (located at the Rosewood Hotel) and even managed to squeeze in a cheeky, unplanned lunch at Burger & Lobster. If you’ve followed my blog for a few months now, you’ll know that I love to escape to London and that’s exactly what I needed that weekend. Good food and good company – the perfect combination. It felt so good to catch up with Demi because we barely get to now that she’s graduated from university and is busy with the Legal Practical Course (LPC). A short but sweet visit!

That Saturday, we went to Harvey Nichols to check out the Rodial counter in the beauty section. I don’t have extensive experience with the brand but everything I’ve tried from them so far has been amazing. I will be posting my everyday makeup routine that I’ve been doing for the past year and the Rodial banana powder will feature in that post for sure. I was running low on the banana powder so it was time to stock up… and pick up a few other bits and bobs. I ended up buying Maria Hatzistefanis’ book ‘How to be an Overnight Success’ (spoiler alert: you can’t) after having listened to her podcast ‘Overnight Success’ for the past month. She’s the CEO of Rodial and is such a girl boss in general. I really recommend checking it out if you’re into podcasts and/or learning about the beauty industry and entrepreneurship. I’m wondering whether I should do an updated podcast recommendation post… Is this something you’d be interested in? I often start my day by listening to a podcast, especially a motivating one, because it just sets me in the right mood for a productive day ahead!

I am currently just relaxing at home in Luxembourg, trying to get as much work done as possible for my university assignments. My good friend Quynh (aka ‘Queenie’) is going to be staying with me for almost two weeks and I want to be able to enjoy my time with her and not stress about essays. Realistically, I will struggle with this for sure. But let’s be optimistic, hm? I travelled around Vietnam with her last December and I am so happy that we get to do the same except in my home country this year! I’m already thinking of all the Christmas food we will consume together. I can’t wait. 

Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, what are some traditions you follow?
