I don’t really have a lot of time for proper pampering, so when the lovely people from Disney on Ice asked me if I’d like to have a personal pampering session at Aveda Spa in Covent Garden of course I said yes, because Aveda is one of my favourite salons.
First of all I was given a blow dry which transformed my tangled tresses into silk, and then came the very thorough pedicure, which made my feet incredibly soft, and manicure, which shaped my nails perfectly, finished with a coat of glittery pink polish.

(Yes I know Christmas seems a long, long way off, but the tickets are on sale now, and they go pretty quickly. You can find out more on the Disney on Ice website.) We’ve only had a brief taste of Disney on Ice, at Disneyland Paris, but the show promises to be magical.
