french recollection

lately i have been thinking a lot about the French, in particular French actors. Rarely do you see them wearing tons of heavy make-up, even when they are dressed for red-carpet events. French women in particular focus more on their skin-care routine than they do on the cover-up. its beautiful and refreshing to see barely there make-up on celebrities which is a rare thing to see here in the States. You don't see French women with fake orange tans, getting plastic surgery, wearing tons of heavy eyeliner and clothed in the latest new trends no matter how annoying and unflattering they look. do French celebrities even have stylists like American celebrities do? either way i think we should be getting some cues from the French because for some reason they seem to do everything right!

it's snowing again...and other things

so it's snowing again and i'm kinda disappointed. after a week of below 0 degrees F i was hoping things would start to warm up and melt. it's warmed up but not melted yet!!! anyway got me going through my winter inspos folder which has a lot of winter whites in them! i also threw in some pics of my new pup Mordecai (my son named him from his fav character on Regular Show). enjoy your week!!!

aging with grace

what do zooey deschanel, jane goodall, and grace coddington all have in common? well they all represent (for me) aging with grace. i'm 27 and this year i will turn 28. yes i know not very old now but every year i get older and seems like with every moment i can see my self aging. for most women my age turning 30 is a scary thought, but why? 30 is just an age anyways right? and isn't 30 the new 20? besides all that when women turn this age or are around this age they really start focusing on taking care of their skin and trying to prevent signs of aging. for a while now i've noticed the skin around my eyes becoming thinner and more sensitive. i even have tiny crows feet. my hands when they are cold and dry look so much older than they really are. this has me thinking of what kind of women i will become as i get older. growing up i always heard my mother's complaints about aging and looking in the mirror only to be saddened by what you see. i told myself i would not be like that. my mother doesn't believe in plastic surgery or botox, or any other kind of medical reversal of aging. i've seen many a older lady who has had both done and they look unnatural and often times scary. my mother believes that keeping your skin moisturized, wearing copious amounts of sunblock and watching what you eat is the key to keeping your skin looking healthy and natural and she's right. so in conclusion as i get older i will embrace my fine lines and wrinkles and just keep to my skin routine. i will probably let my hair grey naturally because dying it damages it terribly and i want to keep my length healthy looking like jane goodall does. my style will probably remain the same, age appropriate and still chic like grace coddington's style. after all these 3 women although different in ages have some thing in common, their own personal style and beauty that is all their own!!!

spring uniform

we had a quick warm-up (if you think 50 degrees F is warm) here in upstate ny which has got me thinking about spring! i know i still got like 2 solid months of wintry weather but i always think waaaay ahead especially when it comes to what I'm wearing. i am a relaxed dresser so naturally my looks are well, relaxed! i don't shave my legs until the weather is in the 70s and above everyday so in spring i'm still wearing jeans and pairing my outfits with sweaters or light jackets.

So my soccer days are over but my soccer mom days are not! my fitness resolution for this year was to get back into yoga, meditation, and pilates and i don't see anything wrong with donning my usual soccer gear for that!
