As the fabulous amongst us travel back to London from their St. Barth’s Christmas, there are going to be some tanned but depressed looking faces around the city this week. The sandy beaches will be replaced by cobblestone streets and the fresh fruit beachside drinks long forgotten with hands clutching at Starbucks venti soy lattes instead! Here’s a suggestion to keep you smiling… grab Assouline’s St. Barth’s book (£30). My copy will permanently be open to either the beach scene or the lovely reminder of the endless luxury labels available to purchase while in paradise. Welcome back, vacationers!
