Everyday Elegance

Happy Monday!

If there is one thing I advocate it’s glamour. Every day, all the time. The word itself is Scottish and means magic. Who wouldn’t want to add that to their life? I think two words that go hand in hand are Glamour and Elegance.

And that is today’s Dior Dictionary Word:


The day doesn’t have to be special or unique. It could be an average morning that is pretty much the same as all the others. But here is where you add your sparkle to the day. A lot of people associate “glamour and elegance” with money. Which is a shame because it has nothing to do with a dollar sign. It’s is a state of mind and I’m here to help add a little shine to an ordinary day. I work from home so it may differ from person to person but here are five fast tips on how to add some glamour to your every day life.

Ways to add elegance and glamour to every day life:

Start your day with music! Whatever makes you feel good. In my house I always have artists like Frank Sinatra, Eartha Kitt, Ray Lamontagne, and various French artists playing.

If you work from home still get ready. Sure there are some days I sit in sweats and am totally useless but let me tell you getting ready makes me want to be more productive and actually be ready for the day ahead.


Wear lingerie! Even if no one sees it. The point is that it’s for you. You don’t have to be a collector like me but it makes you feel great and stand up a little straighter, too.

Keep fresh flowers in the house. This is one thing I’ve done for years and definitely makes me happy.

Invest in “you time”. This is so important because we all lead very busy lives and this is a huge part of self care. It could just be sitting outside and enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Never skip perfume! My current favorite is Chanel Coco Noir.


Have a signature meal to cook. For me, it’s fresh pasta, sauce, and bread.

Don’t obsess over your looks but put yourself together. I have a 2 minute face that I’ll put on when I’m not “going anywhere”. Just BB Cream, brows, and mascara. You feel put together even if it’s just for your toddler to see.

Keep in mind, things like this are important because most of it is self care. And what’s more important than that?

I hope your week starts off sparkly!
