I love, love surfing the net and have a lot of my usual blogs and websites that I visit on a daily basis. The only time that doesn’t happen is on the weekends and while I’m away on vacation.
Today I went to some of my usual haunts and came across an article by Lola Rykiel for Harper’s Bazaar. I loved it and especially loved how there were links throughout the piece that led to more of her well-written pieces giving out words of wisdom in a storybook format.
So, with that being said I had to do more research and wanted to share this with you guys in the event that you find yourselves with time to read.
Today’s post was going to be about skincare, going back to basics to be exact but I changed my mind.
I finally was able to surf the net a little and came across an article on Bettina Graziani for Paris Vogue. I love discovering fashion icons of the 1950’s. Who was she? Only the most photographed model in France, of her generation.
She was beautiful and guess what? She wore red lipstick. I just wish I knew what shades she preferred, more than likely those shades have been discontinued by now.
Jungle Red by Nars is a personal favorite that is being worn down to the nub. If you guys haven’t seen the movie “The Women” that’s where the name for the iconic lipstick came from.
I love that movie and watch it every other year or so. I’m a huge fan of 1930’s Films. Why? Not only because the leading ladies wore matching red lips and nails, but because some of the best writing went into those movies.
I’ve become obsessed with Marcel Proust and Le episode of the Madeleine.
So much so that I ordered a Madeleine tin and made sure I was fully stocked with the ingredients to make a batch of my own.
Why? Because I enjoyed that chapter immensely and identified with him for the first time since beginning the book. I had to get past page 15 to finally get into the story.
I missed buying these little beauties yesterday, which would have been fitting with it being Bastille Day, but better late than never.
I consider myself to be a literary snob, I am drawn to the classics and sometimes feel like I have been living under a rock when I discover a new book that has developed a cult following among my peers.
