BEAUTY IN SIMPLICITY





There's a beauty in simplicity it's about being YOU...it's the way you move, speak and express yourself...your kindness to yourself and others and your warmth...keep things simple.
We are all so good at over complicating things. Just be...beauty is about charisma and character it's what you feel about yourself...you create your own beauty by being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out.















HAPPY WEEKEND



WORKS OF ART: FASHION ILLUSTRATION



Bill Donovan


Not so long ago fashion illustrations were often discarded or forgotten about, beautiful works of art lost forever but now there is a huge interest in collecting these original works...I have begun to collect some myself...more affordable than photography and every bit as desirable.

Many, many years ago I worked in Harrods and I was asked to sit for a young fashion illustrator as she sketched the beautiful Dior suits I modelled...I have been trying to find them but I think, sadly they have been lost in the umpteen moves since then.

Here are a few of my favourites...



David Downton



Michael Canetti



Aurore de La Morinerie

QUOTE OF THE DAY...

I love this quote...the way to live your life...


"The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat,
can influence your life by 30 to 50 years."

Deepak Chopra



'BY INVITATION ONLY': SHARING







The Summer has very nearly ended and September...Autumn and all its glory begins...and our 'by invitation' monthly posts the creative idea of our brilliant host Marsha @ www.splenderosa.blogspot.co.ukhave begun...our monthly post is Sharing...and for me the first thing that came to my mind is laughter...there is nothing better than enjoying and sharing

LAUGHTER

Even when times are hard and nothing seems to be going right laughter can creep up on us and make the 'horrible things' go away...at least for awhile...nobody can make me laugh quite as much as my husband and we have shared 30 years of laughter and happiness... and of course our share of sadness...
but never underestimate the power of a smile and the sound of laughter...it can turn your world around.

SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND







I think September is my favourite month...my daughter was born in September and for me it always seems the start of new beginnings...after all you start school and university in September.  After a
wonderful summer here in the UK I'm looking forward to the autumn and winter months ahead all
with a touch of cashmere close to hand.  This year has been a year of growth for me both personally and in business....you really do never stop learning...how exciting is that?

A few elegant, glamorous and oh, so stylish creations for the weekend...
