I Just Woke Up Looking Like This

Friday, March 20th, was officially the first day of spring, although you couldn’t prove it by me.  When I looked out my window that day I did NOT see “the flowers that bloom in the spring Tra La.”  I saw snow – about eight inches of it before the day was over. 

Spring is finally here, and I know it not just because March snows have turned to April showers,

But because my In Box is full of e-mails from make-up and skin care companies touting “The New Look” for spring and how to achieve it with their products.

Youth Fades – Must We? (Part 3)

Fading into the background of our own lives when youth fades is NOT inevitable.  The modern woman d’un certain âge has choices her mother and grandmother only dared dream of.  In Part 2, I talked about some of those less than ideal choices that pop culture encourages us to make in order to stay visible. 

In Part 3, the last post in this collaborative series between Jennifer Connolly (“A Well Styled Life”) and myself (“The French Touch”), I offer what I think are much better choices.  I hope you will agree.

A Rose By Any Other Name Might Just Be a Princess

Sometimes fairy tales really DO come true. 

All it takes is the right Princess and a teensy, weensy waist.

Youth Fades -- Must We? (Part 2)

As I said in Part 1, there comes a time in every woman’s life when we can no longer chase youth and we can’t run away from age – nobody can run that fast, especially in high heels.

Increasingly, we may feel we are fading into the background of our own lives.   Is it inevitable or is it a choice?

Youth Fades -- Must We? (Part 1)

One of the great joys of blogging is the friendships you form with other bloggers.  Jennifer Connolly, creator of the fabulous Blog “A Well Styled Life,” and I are kindred spirits on so many levels it’s almost scary.  Our regular, bi-coastal (she on the west; I on the east) conversations on everything from style and fashion to the challenges of aging gracefully are always a bright spot in my day.  So, when she asked if I would be interested in collaborating on the topic of the invisibility factor in the lives of women over 50, I jumped at the chance to work with one of the best bloggers in the business. 

Here is my take on the topic.

The Misunderstood Parisian Waiter

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal had me smiling and nodding my head in agreement.  The subject was that most intriguing, intimidating, misunderstood and enigmatic of Parisian symbols – le serveur parisien – the Parisian waiter.
