I thought I would take a little time away from Thanksgiving preparations to share a few fun things.
Now that the cooler weather has arrived I have been experiencing a little 'boot mania'. I knew that I wanted a new pair of boots this year and if possible a pair of booties. Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how the budget thinks of it I found both. I mean really, could you turn these down? And they were on my master shopping list. I was a little skeptical about the booties but with the addition of leggings I really like the way they look with short dresses and skirts and they are so comfortable.
Now.... onto something different. I reserved both of these books from my local library. Lately there seems to be a plethora of wonderful books written about all things French...so far I have enjoyed every one, it's just so much fun learning about a culture that derives so much pleasure from the ascetics, beauty, and enjoyment of the everyday; so très charmant et chic. So here are two more to add to the list ~ they are both excellent, fun, reads full of good information and interesting ideas.
I don't know how many of you are looking for the perfect mascara but I have found mine: 'They're Real' by Benefit. Perhaps it is the shape of the brush which allow you to reach every little lash, or maybe the formula, whichever, it does an amazing transformation on stubby, thin lashes...they really do appear almost unreal and who doesn't want luxurious eyelashes. I purchased mine at Sephora and as a bonus the full size tube came with a small tube, perfect to keep in your purse or for travel.
Lastly, I leave you with a picture of my pink camellias which apparently don't realize it is fall and have already started blooming. Their delicate fragility is so lovely and unexpected amongst the more intense colors of the season. These are very old bushes and I forget about them through the year, then they surprise me with their beauty.
Nothing about the up-coming holiday here but I hope your plans are going well for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you will come back again soon.
