To me, there is nothing more glamorous than a vintage image of a pin-up model – demurely bashful about being sexy, yet bold in lingerie at a time when an ankle was a scandal. Today, the pin-up look is still everywhere – even out of the lingerie drawer – and I find this girly style to be a daily inspiration for everything from makeup to clothing to décor.
The ultimate pin-up, Marilyn Monroe, once said “It’s all make believe, isn’t it?” And I believe you can make your own world as beautiful as you want every day with simple touches that don’t need to cost a lot and small kindnesses to others that are absolutely free. I’ll be sharing these ideas, inspirations and more with you because finding out what makes your life ideal is what it’s all about, isn’t it?
