Get Your Pretty On

"I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness.
And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. 
And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny."
Coco Chanel

The thing I detest about winter {ok, besides cold and snow - oh right, that's the point of winter} is schlepping around in the winter gear. The big coat, always a scarf around my neck, layers of clothing generally in dark colours, and the boots that are warm but not the prettiest - it's all TOO much.

But with spring tip-toeing out inch by inch, it will soon be time to get your pretty on. Are you ready?
It's more than just hanging up the big coat and sprinting out the door with a fresh new perky coloured jacket on. Are you ready to catch your reflection in the glass of a shop window as you pass by?

We all have something that we must do to give us confidence in presenting ourselves. Is it always having your hair freshly styled. Or does wearing heels make you feel more feminine and pulled together. Do you stop and sweep a dusting of blush on your cheeks even just to go to the corner store.

What is it that you MUST do with your appearance to give yourself the confidence to meet destiny?


  1. I am more than ready Katherine!!! I feel exactly the same way you do about winterwear. I can't wait to hang up the coat for a few months and get out the sandals.
    One thing I have to do as soon as I get up is put on my makeup and do my hair. It is a must everyday even if I'm not leaving the house. I do it for myself as much as anyone else.
    I hope you are doing great my dear and wish a wonderful Friday for you.
    much love...

    1. I agree June - even if I have to pass by a mirror in the house, I want to look finished.

  2. I always do my makeup before I go out. It brings me to life and makes me happy and it's for me...even if I'm going to yoga. But my makeup always looks light and fresh. That's a must!

    1. Sharon, You are so right - if you look good you feel good.... and happy.
