Quote of the Day by Carine Roifeld

I encourage you all to embrace your natural beauty, and to complement and highlight your beauty with fashion. While there is no mistaking the quality and beauty of high-end labels, the point of fashion is not to own the most expensive handbag or shoes, but to find the most beautiful items that will bring even more beauty and artย to your already beautiful self. Fashion is, after all, not about the clothes, but about the way in which one wears the clothes. Embrace your individual style, and don’t stress about where the clothes come from. If you have the means to afford beautifully crafted items, don’t be afraid to splurge, if you can’t afford them, don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to look, and feel, beautiful on a budget. There will be lots of tips coming soon!

XOXO,

Elisabeth

 

The Earth Has Music For Those Who Listen

“The earth has music for those who listen.” ~ Shakespeare

Today I encourage you to take the time to take a walk, open your window, or just go on your balcony and take a moment to appreciate the great beauty of nature. I love to take walks and listen to music–I feel like my senses are almost overpowered with the great beauty, peace, and joy that both nature and music give me.


 

Here is someย music that I have been listening to endlessly:

  • Allegri’sย Miserere Mei https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36Y_ztEW1NE
  • Chopin’s Nocturne in c# minorย https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5qeuVOIbHk
  • Smetena’s Moldauย https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G4NKzmfC-Q

Photos:

  • The rose garden photo was taken in England, at a mansion in the countryside… the aroma of the roses was breath-taking.
  • The chapel photo was taken in Austria, a mile from the house I grew up in. Whenever I need peaceful imagery to think about, I always think of this chapel, nestled amongst the trees on top of a mountain…

Xoxo,

Elisabeth
