French Elle asks the question: What do we think of tie-dyed lips? What do you think of them?
For a decade or more the shy, reclusive Françoise Hardy has not produced a new album. Now she has and the media are abuzz with interviews all asking her about the self-composed melancholy lyrics that are beautiful and poignant. She has apparently had quite a difficult/complicated time with love. She is, however, delightful and self-afacing in interviews.
Don’t you just love her pure white hair and the perfect cut to make it sultry and young?
Yesterday while shopping at the grocery store — not the market, that will be tomorrow — there was a young woman in her 20s in front of me. One of my favorite pass times while waiting in such lines is to observe what the people in front of me, and the one behind, are buying. (It helps me remain zen particularly when I’m in a rush.)
This is what the obviously health-conscious woman bought: lentils, yellow raisins, two types of apples,Roquefort, a bottle of Muscadet, endives, walnuts (in the shell), a box of multi-colored cherry tomatoes and a bar of milk chocolate with hazel nuts. Yes, not the dark chocolate we’re constantly told we should eat.
