Gray So Shiny and Warm

It’s been raining here and so gray….but that doesn’t stop me from just plainly feeling “gray”. Here I am looking through my colors of gray inspirations and it just lightens my heart to see, shiny silver, warm whites (starting to feel warmth around me)…..and the sadness of gray is gone! Yves St. Laurent was right when he said that fashion is life….

The Beauty of Tumblr and Tumblr 101 (Part 1/2)

Yes, Tumblr has some of the most beautiful blogs out there.  It appeals to the visually-stimulated part in us.  In fact, Tumblr’s bloggers post and “reblog” some very beautifully-inspiring and shoppingly-motivating photos.  Inspiring because the photos ignite the simplest of emotions in me.  Some of them inspire me to dress up, some inspire me to get artsy and start a craft or a lifelong skill such as drawing, that I’d pushed aside because of life’s daily obligations. Some of these photos also ignite long lost memories of my childhood because there are photos posted from my past that I hadn’t seen in ages!  What Tumblr does for a lot of us is it gives us a digital option to save magazine clippings online!  🙂  Funny thing is, Tumblr also makes me want to shop more, which is why I said some of the blogs were “shoppingly-motivating”.  For some of us, that may not always be a good thing but it’s like having your girlfriends showing you photos of great fashion ideas or products!  What do you do when your friends show you some great stuff?  You go out and buy them!

Anyhow, enough of me telling you how great Tumblr is.  As promised, here my Tumblr 101 Setup Tutorial.  Let me preface this by saying that the following is written purely for the Tumblr newbie.  I won’t go into detail with some of the advanced setup processes, mainly not to overwhelm any beginner blogger.

So!  Let’s get started!

When I Grow Up…

 

lf audrey2When can one stop saying that phrase?  “When I grow up…”?  I say, “Never”!  There are so many women of substance that I so looked up to.  If there were qualities I could inherit from any generation of women, I would claim from the beauties of the 50s…mainly, because they “seemed” to be so regal to a young girl like me at the time.

Welcome to Elle’s Lookbook! I’m So Happy You’re Here!

There is so much beauty in this amazing world we live in.  Ever since I was a little girl, I couldn’t get enough of fashion and art. I guess you can say that I am a definite right-brainer….

Anyhow, you know how some people collect tea cups or paper weights?  Well, let’s just say this is my collection of what I feel inspires me…what I feel is beautiful, inspirational and rocks my world. I share it here in the hopes that at least one of the items I post or talk about inspires you, too…. or at the least, someone you may know?

I live a great life and it’s not because I was born with a silver spoon. My parents have worked hard and have taught me to do the same, and as a result; my family and I have always been able to “manage” a great life… My friends have always encouraged me to start a blog and share bits and pieces of my life, my fashion and beauty tips; but mostly just the plain ol’ life tips…

As such, here goes! I thank you so much for dropping by and I hope to hear from you, your comments and support are going to be priceless treasures!
