I often sit on the judging panel for press and industry beauty awards and this year I was lucky enough to be involved in Stylist’s skincare awards. I attended a lovely morning breakfast ceremony in the company of quite a few familiar faces and shared my table with the editor Lisa and Dr Sam Bunting and Catherine Bossom from Space NK, which proved for some great industry chat. Stylist is always a brilliant read and really hot on beauty and skincare so it was exciting to be involved and test all the nominated products.

What a fabulous way to start the week!
