When my life needs a boost, I run to fashion. Somehow it always gets me excited. Visible items like hats and large-printed tights are excellent when you want to feel like a star here and now.
I like the boudoir vibes that are up on the trend scene now. Faux fur jackets, silk and satin dresses, mixing bedroom wear with your day apparel.
The night out was magic. Getting cooler, yet still warm enough to linger on with my Sweets.
We went out to the Frontenac castle terrace and admired the cruisers that keep stopping by at this time of the year. They are on the Saint Lawrence river to admire the foliage. Cruises start in New York and climb up the East Coast. What I also enjoy doing is going jogging by the waterfront and letting my senses get a sweet blast of light and fun flowing from the cruiser.
In the nocturnal city you can play the star. Try it, will you!?
I love the feather hair embellishment. It adds a nice breezy feel.
Quebec City’s pride… our grand ol’ castle. When I get a longing for New York hustle and bustle, I venture over there. Hang out at their Starbucks.
I keep reading my Happy for No Reason book. I sense the shift in me. Slowly – as if I were asking myself “and why could I not be happy for no reason?”
One of the principles is to find out what expands your energies. Sit still, think of a place, thing, person… whatever you’re wondering about. Ask your body how it feels about this. As you put your thoughts on the issue, do you stretch out or feel your spine curling in. Try to do only things that expand you.
My expanding elements: walks outside in parks, interesting talks with clients, independent work, red wine with friends or sometimes alone after a long day, jogging and having the time to think peacefully as I go, getting comments about my fashions, writing my thoughts out.
As fall draws near, we have a new chance to jump into other activities. I pledge to focus on that side and not be sad about summer ending. I started burning a salted caramel scented candle yesterday. I’m more drawn to Starbucks evenings with my girls again – chat and warm cup, a winner combo, movie nights with the Sweets and cinnamon raisin toast.
Being a fashionista is seeing every day as your time to glow. Put on what you find funky, and see how the world responds.
