When I have a little leisure time, I try to read books that are easy, light and pleasant. And this even if I am dead tired, as I cannot fall asleep without reading at least a few pages. It makes my heart sing, now that I see that I have managed to transfer this custom to my son. Nowadays, children and people generally, read too little. We have become completely hooked by the internet. Wait a minute, what I am doing here on my blog? 😉
Today I would like to recommend to you, an example of such an easy and very pleasant book.
“Love, Style, Life” by Garance Doré
I simply LOVE it! I haven’t had such fun reading in a long time, maybe because it reminded me of some similar situations from my life. The book has beautiful photos and illustrations by Garance, and for me, she is a free, colorful bird – a true artist. If I have to describe this book using one word it would be refreshing.
“Garance Doré – the best thing to happen to style since Grace Coddington’ (the Guardian) – is an ambassador of French taste and fashion, whose knack for making fashion accessible and fun has captivated millions of fans worldwide.
A fashion A-lister, beloved by top fashion editors and aspiring fashionistas alike, she takes a candid and self-deprecating approach that’s thoroughly unique.
Part-style guide, part-visual diary, part-intimate look into the world of one of fashion’s most powerful influencers, Garance surprises us with her candour and intimacy, blending deeply personal storytelling with her unmistakable photos and illustrations in a unique narrative journey.
Infused with her honest and authentic writing, eclecticism and the wild, passionate spirit of her native Corsica, the book is a backstage pass behind fashion’s frontlines, peppered with Garance’s French-girl-next-door wit and advice on everything from mixing Zara with Chanel, to capturing the true essence of chic to pursuing a life and career that you love.
This is a charmingly addictive read that will inspire you to discover and cultivate a chic that is all your own.” – source of description and photo: amazon.co.uk
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
„I am learning how to do shopping in my own closet” – well, well, me too 😉 . I wrote about it here.
„Sometime you have to forget about fashion and put galoshes on”.
„Now I know that fashion can really add a lot of strength and make everyone feeling beautiful”.
„You have to create your own definition of success”.
“Your own style will turn you into the chief editor of your own wardrobe”.
„Regardless of what you were given the day you were born it’s you who decides whom you will become – every day. The looks grows when we grow into ourselves”.
“There is nothing worse than referring to someone in different ways depending on the situation. A greeting is a fixed currency in relationships/personal communication”.
„A deep friendship may arise within 3 minutes, a superficial one might stretch for years”.
This week was GOOD because…#smallpleasures #joyoflife
On Friday February 26, I had the pleasure to take part in the gala: The Finals of Edition I of Women’s Business Diamonds organized by the magazine LAW BUSINESS QUALITY. The meeting took place at 58 Ogrodowa Center.
LAW BUSINESS QUALITY is a magazine for successful people. It covers topics like: law, business, economy, investments, art, and travel. This magazine is directed towards people who appreciate luxury and elegance. It was created by Ilona Adamska – a very creative and hard working woman who consequently implements everything she thinks about.
During gala businesswomen were given diplomas “Trustworthy Company”. I am very proud of my colleagues, companies’ owners, who received diplomas.
And here is the picture with my awarded colleagues from TriCity, Jastrzębia Góra and Warsaw. Bravo Ladies, I am very proud of you!!! We had to celebrate this moment with a good wine 😉
I am always very happy when I manage to find some time for meeting my girl friends and colleagues. You know how it is: family, work and other responsibilities. Add to it those low power days that occur occasionally, and sometimes we do not have the energy to do anything.
This week I beat a record of the last few years, as I managed to find time to meet the ladies 3 times, “madness” 😉
I am writing about it, because such meetings give me incredible energy! I always keep repeating that sometimes we unnecessarily spend money for a psychologist, while what is necessary is to talk with welcoming, creative and amazingly energetic women. You know what I mean 😉
So Ladies, try to find some time for meeting friendly women. It’s your time! BTW, phone conversations are not the same.
I finished my sweater and it will be presented on the blog tomorrow. And that’s it for this season, as the winter is almost over. My knitting needles have to wait till autumn.
WHY was this week GOOD FOR YOU?
