I received the Parisian Chic book by Ines de la Fressange and have been so enjoying it.  Today, flipping through while waiting for part of my mini weekly facial to dry, I found the following on page 123 under  Section 3. Timeless Beauty.

 For lifelong beauty :

À      Be well-groomed
À      Smell nice
À      Look after your teeth.  Have them professionally cleaned every six months
À      Smile
À      Be indulgent
À      Be nonchalant and forget your age
À      Be cooler and more easy going
À      Be less selfish
À      Be passionate about a man, a project, a house.  It’s an instant facelift.
À      Do only what suits you.  The perfect Zen attitude.
À      Accept that there will be bad days.  And make the most of the good days!

Then on the next page, to sum up simple pleasures :

MemoAn hour sleeping or making love is better than a Botox injection at the dermatologists
… (I like this)

It’s Simply Sassy – the kind of attitude I love.

    Some sound advice. Thanks for sharing.

    By the way, if you really like me, you’ll dig out those pictures of you from the Eighties and show them to me. 🙂 My delight in seeing you in earlier fashion would be endless.
