Favorites List

imagine verdant gardens for pedestrians along the Champs-Élysées leading to the Arc de Triomphe.

It has been a while since I’ve done a favorites list and will remedy the situation today. Lately, I’ve been sneaking extra reading time into my schedule. When at work I’ll add a few minutes to lunch to read a few articles or chapter from a book. There is always so much to take in and share.

    • Not sure how I feel about the French transforming the Champs-Élysées into a pedestrian-green friendly space. After all these years of popping into Paris one becomes accustomed to dodging Peugeot’s and Renault’s, along with the Gallic gestures of pedestrians.

    • Have you seen the new “French Toast” cookie that the Girl Scouts are selling this year? And the adorable tykes are working with Grubhub so, it’s all online.
    • I keep returning to Pat McGrath Labs site to view her gorgeous range of eye shadow kits. The “Divine Rose Luxe Quad: Eternal Eden” is something I may have to purchase to start the Spring season off stylishly. Pat McGrath is a Black make-up artist from England who is top in the fashion field of cosmetics. She was hired by Giorgio Armani in 1999 to collaborate on a range of products. What I always enjoyed was leafing through  a Harpers Bazaar or Vogue to read about her creative work.
    • I’ve been sitting on this article for a few weeks after listening to NPR one morning. A year or so ago I did a bit of research regarding woman artist of the Renaissance knowing they were not permitted to enter the art academies like their male counterparts. The artistic talent of these women alone certainly outweighs that of men [da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael]. So, the next time you’re in Florence, Venice or Rome go to see the inspiring artwork of women artist [such as Artemisia Gentileschi], and you will have your answer.

Remember to schedule time to read and always stay safe!!!
