I'm so excited to be in Aspen for the Aspen Shorts Fest as one of the short films Dronemovie.co.uk, my husband wrote, directed and we produced through our company Third Man Films has been selected to show here! Aspen was always one of my dream destinations. I just loved the idea of huge mountains, log cabins and Apres ski in the form of hot tubs and hot chocolate. Aspen is everything I thought it would be and more.
Everyone here is so welcoming and says hello to you in the streets and coming from London where all eye contact is to be avoided, it did feel very alien but a couple of days in quite lovely! As well as feeling like you are being bear hugged by cuddly awe inspiring mountains, as they surround the town being 8,000 ft above sea level the air is very dry here. The air is delicious and clean but with not much moisture my beauty routine has been taken up a notch.
I brought along with me Elemis' new Pro- Collagen Cleansing Balm, www.timetospa.co.uk, which I like to call a 'spa in a jar', as it smells like being on a therapy bed in an Elemis Spa being smothered with warm fragrant oils..... amazing. As well as it's heady aroma, it's packed with precious starflower, elderberry oils with decadent rose and mimosa waxes that melt onto the skin removing make up and leaving skin feeling nourished and soft. You can also use the balm as a treatment mask for 10 mins to leave you feeling deeply relaxed and the skin feeling soothed. Between the mountains and this mask I've been floating about Main Street (yes it's really called Main Street, it's like the town from It's a Wonderful Life here, it's soooo fabulous I love it here).
To lock in the moisturise my trusted Creme de La Mer, The Moisturising Soft Cream, www.cremedelamer.co.uk, also made it on the trip here with me. I have combination skin but as I'm in my mid 30s now I still need moisture and some anti-aging help but minus the grease. The soft cream really delivers as it leaves my skin feeling soft, silky and radiant and is also a great base for make up, with a Mr whippy, buttery texture I love pressing into the skin. Enjoy!
