Sans Mascara a lá Parisienne

2 Feb

I love the effortless look of a seemingly bare-faced mademoiselle with messy hair and a sexy disposition, she is a Parisienne and she is proud of her natural face.

I would hazard a guess that in Paris, sales of false eyelashes and bookings for eyebrow tattoos are minimal and I certainly can’t imagine much business for plastic nails and synthetic hair extensions. I think perhaps some of us Liverpool ladies could learn a thing or two about natural beauty from our sisters over the Channel!

Here are three of my current natural beauty icons, French actresses with healthy faces and extreme attractiveness.
The lovely Melanie Laurent

After getting so much inspiration from these stunning women I am venturing out without mascara tomorrow and I can’t wait!

Colour Blocked

23 Oct

It is October. I adore autumn with its orange glow of falling leaves. Streetlights reflected yellow in the drops of rain forming puddles on the pavements. Cheeks rose pink in the colder air. The delicious chocolate coloured liquid of a warming coffee.

Floral prints seem garish and bright colours almost clash with the seasons natural hue. What on earth is a fashionista to do?

Think French.

I love experimenting and having fun with colours, sometimes I have my very own colour-blocking weeks in the office. No prints or patterns just bold against bright and I love it but, it doesn’t feel right for now.

I want to sit at the back of the bus in moody black and have all the other commuters avoid me. I want to sip my red wine in grey cashmere and talk about current affairs with a lover. I don’t want to hide behind a wall of somber tones, rather I want people to think me mysterious. I hear them whispering ‘Is she a poet?’ ‘No, perhaps an artist?’ ‘No no my friend, I think she may be French!’.
