Never have I seen Cristel without her most engaging accessory — her gorgeous smile. It illuminates her lovely face and makes you want to hug her.
Don’t think she’s as young as she looks. With barely a trace of makeup — a smudge of eyeliner, a stroke of mascara and a touch of gloss — she looks like a 20-something college girl. She is, however the mother of a teenage daughter and a 20-something son.
She is as charming as she appears. She told me once she refuses to see the negative in life. “I think it’s a waste of time,” she said. “It saps energy that is better applied to concentrating on the good things.”
She also smells delicious in a cloud of Clinique Aromatics Elixir.
Cristel owns a menswear boutique in the town near our village. As you can see from a few of the photos, she likes wearing some of her merchandise — her way. She’s living proof that masculine can be extremely feminine.
Because she truly is a rayon de soleil, I thought you would enjoy seeing a collection of pictures I’ve taken of her over the last two years. And, she hates to have her picture taken.
Yes, I know, what a body. . . She claims she loves nothing more than sitting down to a “mountain” of pasta. (Maybe she only eats once a week. I forgot to clarify.)
