    This post was so so good! Thank you for the kind words about one of my posts! That was such a pleasant surprise. I was literally just reading the post, and saw that and started cheesing up. When I think of French fashion, I definitely think about you. You have that simple classic french look! You have definitely achieved what you wanted. Great post Laura xxx

      Thank you girl! I loved the post you did on balance; it really resonated with me. I completed my life goal to be linked to French fashion lol – I have been trying to go more simple. I went through a random ‘edgy stage’ last year. xxx

    I feel like we’ve always idolized the French in terms of style and lifestyle. They just seem cooler than us
    I do think that prioritizing skincare over makeup sounds like a wise move in the long run. Its It’s something I want to try doing myself, but at the same time, I’m enjoying playing around with makeup. For now, I might take a pass at living like a French girl. You’re doing great though! I loved the simple makeup look

      I read an article that blames the French style obsession with Brigitte Bardot – not sure how true that is! It’s great that you’re playing around with makeup. I always think it’s good to try and many things possible to figure out what looks you like.
      I wasn’t wearing makeup in the photo a part from this lipgloss I’m currently addicted to. Thank you for reading!

    Love how you wrote this post and love Chanel’s quotes and lifestyle! Yes have to agree that the French is always simple yet elegant which is my fashion style as well 🙂

      Thank you lovely!! Since I have started adding quotes to most of my posts, I’m suddenly realising how many great things Chanel said. I will always love simplicity.

    Oh my god YES! I cannot tell you how much I agree with this post – I went to Paris and I fell in absolute love. There’s such a strong sense of elegance and effortless class the french exude. One thing I really noticed (and adored) is how minimal their makeup is. As someone who isn’t really a fan of how much makeup it’s considered fashionable to wear in the UK, I was in my element!xxx

      Paris is stunning right!! It completely surpassed my expectations. I’m not a fan of the Instagram look and wish that there was not such an emphasis on changing your face. I feel like it should be about emphasising – which is what the French still do. xxx

      It makes life so much easier when you don’t fuss. Just these last few days, not spending so much time on makeup and hair, has been quite refreshing. Thank you so much for reading!!

    Ah, aren’t we all smitten by the French elusiveness? 🙂 I can relate to what you said about simplicity taking center stage, be it fashion or lifestyle choices. At the end of the day, what appeals about the French lifestyle is how they have a very relaxed approach to anything. No forced efforts as such, and I feel like they stick to what is tried and tested. There is a certain charm in that. 🙂 Great post!

    • LauraJ says

      Thank you! I find that appealing as well. They don’t try to change their hair type or over-edit their features. There is just a sense of – this is me and I accept it. 🙂

I would love to read your thoughts!
