Beauty Drama At the Airport

Beauty Drama At the Airport

How could there possibly be a beauty drama at the airport?

Well, I had one.


So it was definitely not life altering or life threatening and a very tiny drama in the scheme of life but it could have ended badly; I might have been a very unhappy traveller.


Let’s back up a bit.

Barbra Streisand: Another Beautiful Face

Barbra Streisand: Another Beautiful Face

Barbara Streisand is another beautiful face.

I am a long time admirer of this fabulous looking woman. She is talented, super successful and I believe a woman who has aged incredibly well. Streisand has managed to retain her own signature style forever.

Ever since Funny Girl, Hello Dolly and What’s Up Doc not to mention The Way We Were (that must be the all time best chick flick ever) I have watched her movies. I realise it is her singing voice, her enormous talent with the vocals where Barbra Streisand’s fame lies, but I enjoy her movies. Two of my favourites, the less well known Prince of Tides and The Mirror Has Two Faces are worth a watch if you have not already seen them.

Legendary Lashes

Legendary Lashes


Legendary lashes?

I had them last year for a short time but they were extensions.

Have you tried extended lashes?

I loved them. The lashes worked for me for some months; they looked natural and I could wake up each morning and do my eye make-up in seconds.

A quick flick with the pencil and they were done.

They lasted for nearly two months before looking patchy and then a lash refill gave me another month.

London has been in full patriotic swing, despite the intermittent storms.

I declare my hand up front; I am a huge fan of the Queen and always have been.

The Queen turned 90 in April and if there is ever an inspiration for older women it is she.

When In France Do As The French Woman Does

When In France Do As The French Woman Does

TheFrench woman has a lot to live up to.

We revere their style; dissect their fashion thinking and comment on them endlessly.
Sometimes I feel, enough is enough and we go too overboard in thinking the French woman has all the answers.

Of course she doesn’t.

There are beautiful women the world over rocking enviable personal styles and oftentimes we do forget about them in favour of our French icons. I try not to be biased but as France is on my doorstep and France is where I take my inspiration; the French woman is my muse.

Vanessa Redgrave: Another Beautiful Face

Vanessa Redgrave: Another Beautiful Face

Vanessa Redgrave is an actress I have long admired.

She has been star of the stage and screen for as long as I can remember; Camelot, the 1967 musical she starred in with Richard Harris and France Nero, stays firmly entrenched as a childhood memory.

There is a presence about Vanessa Redgrave.
