Your day, your hair

You set the date, chose your dress, the bouquet, the venue, the cake….What about your hair? Up or down? Here are some beautiful choices for updos that you can try and retry till you find the right style…

I hope this helped all those brides to be out there, i know how stressed and under pressure all this can be for you! Next week we will have a look at other styles for wedding hair, until then…xo

Botoxed for whom?

When i look at myself in the mirror, i see this person that isn’t me, i see a replica of the me i imagine myself to be! A replica that is somehow less taut, less fresh and less vibrant!

After 40, women realize that everything is changing (hello!!), the law of gravity begins to play its role, and our cells seem less likely to regenerate on their own!

I am not saying i want to look younger, just maybe more fresh…I know a lot of women who had botox done, several times, and they look good, relaxed, definitely less wrinkled, but on the whole, they looked good.

I talked about it with some men friends, and most of them were against it; saying that being natural is the most attractive trait for a woman.

My argument was, women don’t do it for men, they do it to feel better about themselves, for their own satisfaction and well-being. They are not fighting the aging process, just making it more agreeable!

They weren’t convinced.

What do you think? Do women try to look young and fresh for men or for themselves?

Good morning everyone, hope you spent a nice weekend with a beautiful weather as we did in this part of the world!

My days were spent relaxing, did some shopping (yeah!), and started reading The happiness project by Gretchen Rubin..Everyone should read this book at least once!

My daughter’s latest work, named colors of Africa, sooo proud of her!

Onto what’s inspiring me this week..

The more i look at this room , the more i like it, black and white with touches of gold..A winner!

Imagine having this room as your home office! The bookshelves, lucite chair, antique desk, the rug…Love it!

Check out the brass on the range!

And who hasn’t joined the arm party yet? The more the better!

I will use him as my arm party anytime! Glorious George…ahhhh! (no need to get inspired here, lol!)

Have a lovely and inspiring week! xo…
