How could I resist snapping these luxurious and vibrant roses at Dani Roses on the rue Saint Honore?
I promised myself that I would search out the unknown, the new and the different during this Parisian visit, but I found myself drawn to my old haunts, snapping my most loved spots and following my familiar traditions.
Walking the rue du Saint Honore in December is magical. The sparkle, the beauty and the people watching. The Parisians, rugged up against a backdrop of glamour, there is nothing quite so atmospheric.
I spoilt myself with a new red lipstick from Chanel yesterday.
Another red? A new red? Yes.
I didn’t mean to, I really didn’t.
I couldn’t resist the luxury and extravagance of this small pop up style boutique on the rue Saint Honore.
The charming sales assistant and her irresistable accent. Dressed of course in black and white and with a fabulous red lip… What was I to do?
She explained to me what makes a red lipstick “just so” according to Madame Chanel. She talked about the mix of pigments and how the shade of rouge must compliment the skin and the teeth. Brighten and whiten.
I did exactly the same thing last year… with a different red.
How many red lips can a girl wear?
The way it makes me feel… I think there can never be too many red lips in my life and with a name like La Flamboyante…
