Now if you don't know, I like to think of myself as a bit of a foodie. But I've never really done
a 'food post' as such. I'd like to start throwing them in there every now and again. I'm not
becoming a chef of any sorts, just to share my passion for food alongside travel and beauty
products, and maybe sometime mix them all together!

In my own definition of foodie anyway - I feel like everyone has a different one.

My points are that:

1. I love food - I was brought up in France: cheese is one of my biggest weaknesses
2. I love cooking and discovering new healthy recipes. One of my favourites being
'nana ice cream (have a look here).
3. I love going to a new country and trying new food - but not quite as far as eating
insects on the street, I'm still squeamish!
4.  I think there is nothing lovelier than having a huge meal with friends and family,
that lasts for hours Ilike the idea of food bringing people together.

When we stayed at the incredible Six Senses in Con Dao, an island just south of Ho Chi
Minh City in Vietnam, we were treated to meal after meal of deliciousness (for lack of a
better adjective). Freshly squeezed juice in our fridge everyday to enjoy by the pool, good
old greasy burgers done just right for when we'd eaten too much Pho and chicken satay,
and sushi and sashimi for room service and a cheeky pavlova just before leaving because
I just *had* to try it. Oh, and of course free all-day ice cream. Hungry anyone?

One of my favourite shots I took backstage at House of Holland last year (you know that 
time #harrytouchedmyback). The beautiful Mica Arganaraz rocking gelled back hair, 
which is making me want to try that look out. Although I doubt I'll look quite like an 
Argentinian supermodel when I do.

These two are on high rotation in the shower at the moment. Not only do I love the design (I'm
a sucker for good packaging) of Shu Uemura hair, but I love the use of a pump - especially
when the stuff inside is does a damn good job, too. It's a big thumbs up from me.

A while back I told you I would show you some more photos from Villa Sungai, so I thought
the beautiful set up which was created for our last evening dinner would be a good choice.
Looking back on these photos now I can't believe we stayed in this place! It really was the
most out of this world experience having our own private villa - which looked like that - and
that we were treated to such delicious food, relaxing massages and local music during our stay,
and THEN they decorate the place like this for our last evening, (along more lychee martinis,
of course) - just incredible.
