Draped in Gold

If you had to pick only two of your favourite luxuries to have for the rest of your life, what would they be? Gold and Gucci are the two things that come to mind when I asked myself that question.  I’ve figured I could rule the world with just these two things!

An average week for me consists of 40 long (but lovely) hours of work, a 15 hour commute, 10 hours of cardio and weight training, a ballet class, a piano lesson and all the other gruelling chores of life. So it’s no surprise that sometimes the only luxury I crave is to get cosy on the sofa and snuggle up with my two cute kittens.   Some may describe this as slobbing out and a total couch potato.  Not me.  What an ugly expression.  Even in my darkest hour, my rock bottom and at total exhaustion, my relaxation style will still be strong.

Have you ever been told to go to your happy place?  Been told to imagine yourself in a meadow or at the beach on a perfect summers day?  My happy place is exactly where I am now.  Chilling at home, with my kittens,  wearing my favourite Gucci T-shirt and draped in a gold eye and lip mask, courtesy of Dr Maryam Zamani, MZ Skin.  I am seriously living the dream!

MZ Skin Hydra-Bright Golden Eye Treatment Mask erases all evidence of my 5AM starts and revitalises my sore eyes to the bright and beaming sight they should be.  Before setting the golden masks above my checeks I put them in the fridge for 20 minutes.  Something about the cool jelly feeling instantly refreshes me.  The instructions say to leave on only for 15 minutes but it’s so relaxing that for me that’s impossible.  The masks are filled with collagen, hyaluronic acid and seaweed to brighten dark circles.  They come in a box of five but even after just one you can drastically see the appearance of puffiness has faded.  Perfect for an emergency treatment for a special occasion.  Damn,  they’re filled with nano gold particles, wear them to the special occasion!

Those days of carrying concealer around to protect the world from my sorry state of sore eyes are finally over!

Need I bother say my lips feel soft and supple after being touched by MZ Skin.  It’s really not chic to sport cracked and chapped lips but annoying no matter how much you keep them moisturised, lets face it, the bitterly cold winter weather wins.  That is the moment I choose to close my eyes and take myself to my happy place, and even when I open them to the clouds and the rain, I know that soon enough i’ll be back in luxury, dripping in Gucci and gold, where all will be restored, revitalised and rested.
