Music has been a part of my life since day one. The fact that I can read music makes me feel a little bit better about my constant struggle to learn Spanish fluently. Music is another language, and one I’ve grown up to appreciate.
I spent many summers playing my cello here, and one thing always stuck with me. There was a quote behind the stage we played on that read, “Dedicated to the Promotion of World Friendship Through the Universal Language of the Arts.”
It’s such an amazing quote- because it is so true. Throughout my life, the arts have connected me with people all over the world- including you! It’s incredible that despite your culture, language, distance, whatever, the arts are in fact, a universal language.This is a painting of my great grandmother (married to this guy), who was a concert pianist.
It’s true, I’m a lipstick fanatic. No matter what you’re wearing, a bold lip can take your look to the next level. It’s one of those power cosmetics that gives you confidence as you glide it on… even if you’re not wearing any other makeup.
My current summer lipstick obsessions (clockwise from top):
Chanel 38 La Fascinante, Clé de Peau Beauté R10, Hare Lipstick (Henna lipstick that reacts to your PH balance, it is not green on your lips! Plus it stays on all day), Tom Ford Violet Fatale (looks amazing on, less purple than it appears).
