Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all. 



French face forward in Seattle with Jill Bucy

Not a week after posting about Paris's beauty event Rives de la Beaute, we've found another reason to love Francophone beauty things... Jill Bucy spa in Seattle. Yes, you read that right... Seattle. This is one of the few places in America where 30-year old French beauty brand Biologique Recherche is available. I remember looking longingly at the Biologique Recherche site years ago when recruiting brands to the e-commerce site I had just launched. As far as I know, it's still not available in the UK, although it is in Germany, Cyprus, Spain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey and the Ukraine.

Get the same sort of treatments Parissiennes get at Jilly Bucy with her Classic French Facial, Advanced French Facial or 45-minute Vital Cleanse. 

After living in Paris and frequenting the tiny, local spa on Rue de Montorgueil, I know what it is to have a French facial treatment (although, talking about other treatments, nothing yet compares to the manicures you can get at the cheapy places in the states). Efficient and resulted-oriented (there was no music, no faff... just pure beauty treatment)... and I miss it. Wouldn't it be grand to have such treatments feature in our regular beauty routines a la française?

Other French beauty finds are available at Jilly Bucy as well, including Sothys Institute and Savon de Marseille

Jill Bucy is located in the MarQueen Hotel (600 Queen Anne Avenue N., Seattle, WA 98109)

Great that you're spreading the word about Jill Bucy's spa — I have had hands-down the best facial care and pedicures there. The CIDESCO trained skincare therapists are lovely and my face just glows after my treatments.
