I often wonder how women choose their hair and makeup products? I mean I circle department stores and small chain stores to study women’s reactions while testing new products or reading the back of one they have heard about and even exchanging opinions at the counter with those who have tried it before, but really what makes a woman finally settle on a product and stick to it, thinking it is the best thing for them?
For example: I have used just about every makeup out there and tend to change the brand only when I sense the ingredients, which have been changed to “new and improved”, are no longer working for my face.
As for hair products, I have also tried just about every shampoo and hair color out there based on of course what my hair needs are during different seasons throughout the year, as well as the quality my hair has become over the years. One thing, I have found, so far is, although I veer on occasion to try something different, eventually I go right back to L’OREAL hair care products. It’s worked for my hair type (Wavy, thick hair), time and time again, no matter how much they have changed or improved their product. My favorite now is the L’OREAL Sulfate free hair care products and L’OREAL Excellence Creme hair color. Together, they make my hair feel and look ten years younger.
I am curious and would love to hear opinions from anyone on this subject matter. So please feel free to give us your input via the comments link.

A woman who I have admired for a long time now, is of course a French fashion icon, Ines de la Fressange. I am not going to detail her bio on this blog entry, but will happily give you a link here so that you can use it to get some background about her.
The interesting thing is that, she became well known around the fashion world as a result of her connection to Chanel throughout most of her 20s. Anyway, she had written a book a while back titled, Parisian Chic, which I have picked up and read from cover to cover, just so I can truly understand Parisian women, their style, even more so than I already do, in order to satisfy my obsession with the French lifestyle, culture, and fashion.
Of course the book validates the fact my core makeup and way of thinking and living is French and I am very happy about that. The transition to living in France someday soon will be very easy for me.
So, check out the video here for a brief narrative of her book. Meanwhile here is the link if you are interested in buying or uploading her book.

I have always appreciated bangs and have supported one myself for years. Believe me I tried without one and it didn’t work on me. So, I am glad to see them back again for 2011 because now I can actually say I am current on a fashion trend.
Since I gear most of my fashion topics to the women over 40, I decided to research the do’s and don’ts of supporting a bang and I found out from here what works and doesn’t. By the way the feature photo of Jill Zarin (top) is my favorite pick of hairstyle and color I want to see on myself in 2011.
