I Love Being a Girl!

NY Times photos It's no secret of my love affair with all things Francaise.  I just read a lovely article in The New York Times about French women entitled "Aging Gracefully, the French Way."  I have a French friend Laetitia from Paris and she really does have that je ne sais quoi.  And she had enough sense to marry a good Southern guy from Louisiana.  I'm smiling with my eyes now.

  4. I’m the opposite when it comes to beauty and my man. I want him to know how hard it is to look so good. I think he appreciates the honesty.

  5. I’m the exact opposite when it comes to beauty routine and my husband. I let him see most of the things I do in the name of beauty. He has to understand what it’s like, though he does a lot of grooming himself.
