Raspberry: With A “P”

Raspberry: With A “P”

Raspberry, with a “p”.

I have always found raspberry to be one of those very lovely words.

Albeit a word with a strange spelling.

What is the “p” all about?
There is nothing “rasping” about raspberry.  

Raspberry denotes everything luscious and delicious.
A word to conjure up goodness and pleasure in every which way. Whether raspberry is a taste, a touch or a vision, all in all raspberry is one potent word.

Leonor Greyl: In Her Routine

Leonor Greyl: In Her Routine

Hair care is very much in her routine.

Mine at least.

Since changing my hair colour and letting nature take it’s course (I never thought I would be that girl) I am far more aware of how it looks.

With the amount of stress I have given my hair it’s surprising I have any left.


Now my focus is on the shade of grey and the condition.

Let’s back up a bit.

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.

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.
