Notes From Abroad: The Beauty of It All

Since I have been here in London, my schedule has been pretty full. In addition to taking classes at the London College of Fashion, I intern four days out of the week at Elemis Ltd, a British skin-care and spa brand, which is carried in spas all over the world.

As an intern, I assist the PR department with their daily activities: scanning, photo copying, running errands, etc. But aside from doing clerical work, there have definitely been a few perks. I was able to try a few of their luxurious products to get a real understanding of the brand and all that is has to offer. My favourite Elemis product is this intoxicating body oil called Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt. It’s solid until you warm the glass bottle in warm water so that it can melt. Then, when you rub it into the skin, it is truly divine. I love that this oil solidifies in cooler temperatures, making it easy to travel with. That's perfect because I am heading to Paris for the weekend, and this is definitely coming with me. Au revoir!
