Love the way the afternoon autumn sunlight highlights my skin and hair in this photo. And most importantly, this is one of those shots where I totally recognize myself (hope that makes sense?): I’m at ease in my skin, hair and radiating my inner punk in torn jeans and rock stud bangles.

After basking in the Parisienne autumn sun while sitting on the Pont des Arts enjoying the views and scenery my hands needed a little rinse. Needless to say I was more than happy to dip them in the splendid fountain at the place du palais royal, next to the Louvre. I’m grateful for my newest acquaintance and friend, French artist Saïd Nanesh, for enjoying the sun with me & capturing in these photos the little acts of light heartedness ‘rebellion’, and childish-like fun in me, and which I must remind my motherly-adult self to relish more often!

If I can use this platform to inspire you to to be tuned to and relish in your inner child, then I’m one happy girl!

I love being a mother. What I best bring to that role is to simply be me: naturally curious, and a woman of many loves, including, travel, different cultures & languages, making new acquaintances, being grateful for & relishing in existing relationships, admiring all beauty & stylistic details of my surroundings. While in Paris without my children I miss them dearly & at times worry that I’m taking time off away from them. But then, I don’t sweat it too much because such travel gives me an opportunity to reconnect with my best me and return to them an even better mother.

If any of the above struck a chord—whatever your personal circumstances (be it single, a husband/wife, sister/brother, daughter/son, friend, business associate, mentor, etc)—please know that this platform is for you, with a wish that it inspires and uplifts you to stay in touch with your best you!

Airport run! Babe had an early flight and needed a ride. I'm not a morning person, but still managed to put together a great look...thank goodness for wearable underwear (or should I say #lingerie)!

With the cooler fall weather a trench coat is a timeless wardrobe piece that keeps you warm and stylish. Are u a trench coat lover, yay or nay?

Nothing like a basic white T, mini skirt and black leather jacket during fall in #Rome. What do you think, aren't they timeless pieces?

Street and casual mode in fav black hoodie, yet feeling stylish when running everyday errands.

#frohawk lover. It's an easy and instant way to add a tad of edginess to a look. What's your style, edgy or more edge? ;-)
