As an avid blog reader and YouTube watcher I take great delight in reading about other peoples lives.
Most of the blogs I read I make-up and fashion orientated and some decor related..but what I also noticed was my penchant for 'French style' blogs.
What is it with the French? Look at almost any French woman ( ok apart from those working the fields and crushing grapes with their feet)...and they all have such effortlessly looking style..
How I wish I was able to wake in the morning..toss my locks like a L'oreal advert and stroll nonchalantly naked to the bathroom...well French women do, don't they?
I on the other hand groan as I drag my carcass out from under the dishevelled duvet...see Edward Scissor Hands style hair in the mirror and shuffle along bleary eyed to the bathroom - not even en suite!
I envy them really ...I envy them because they give themselves time..time to look after themselves...to manicure..massage..highlight..pamper..and not feel guilty. But we do feel guilty don't we?
I know I do
Spending time and money being 'pampered' was always seen as a luxury..a self -indulgence that was a treat..a once a year Christmas gift...and it is hard to get that feeling out of my head
I know...the Doctors tell us how good it is to be massaged and manipulated..how good our body and mind feels after we have re payed our feet for all the walking they have done ...with an hour long pedicure..i know this! I really do!...so why can't I stop feeling I am being selfish?
maybe I need to spend some time in Paris...purely research of course...I just need to find a sponsor.....
