Le Salon Du Quartier- Hair Salon 

I walked by this darling address, Le Salon De Quartier, the day it opened in March 2017. It immediately drew me over to peer through its vast windows. So light, airy yet cozy inside.  I am not all that loyal to any particular hair salon. I know some women are but I get me hair cut so seldom that it doesn’t… Read more →

My 8 Beauty Secrets from France

I posted some time ago a list of the top most beautiful French women (according to me), and I think it’s time to talk about French beauty again. It’s a subject in haute pursuit (‘scuse the franglais punned phrase) for many of us non-French women for some time now, probably a couple of centuries, I’d say.

Top 10 Beautiful French Women

Some say that French women are more beautiful. I don’t know if that is true. Perhaps the myth comes from a certain poise (also known as discretion), a savoir-faire when it comes to wardrobe, and a light hand when it comes to fixing the ravages of time (also known as plastic surgery).
