Yda is the woman behind a gorgeous new body product brand called La Paix. A French word for Peace. And that’s exactly what Yda exudes – Peace. She’s a beautiful woman with a radiant smile and a kind heart. I was completely smitten with her bath products and loved every minute of this shoot – not least because we ended the shoot in my favorite forest in Cape Town! Find out more about this gorgeous woman and her divine products.
