I think one of the reasons Debra and I get along so well is that we share a love for dressing up and playing with different costumes and styles. Dressing up is way to shift your attitude to transform yourself while having fun and enjoying life. You can create a magical experience by putting on a hat or a pair of earrings from a foreign destination. When I got to Debra's house she was taking a nap after a polarity session with one of her patients. With a little bit of inspiration, make up, and fun she transformed herself in a number of minutes.

I met this nice guy yesterday, and we immediately had such an interesting talk about Cologne and the carneval, which is one of the most important things in Cologne. He invited me for a coffee spontaneously,unfortunately I did not have time.Sometimes you meet people, and they don't feellike strangers in a way; maybe sort of new but familiar at the same time.
His glasses are from Biedermeier, 1823,still with the original lenses! They are made out of gold, each part with an own stamp and they were made in Antwerp( he looks a bit like Albert Einstein I think...)
all the best,

"I have had a very lively youth, I used to go to balls all the time, I loved to dance, but then came the old age, pension, but above all boredom... I started looking for something more...
One night, my grandson, of whom I’m very close to, celebrated his birthday in a nightclub in London. And he told me that I could join them. When I arrived, the bouncers didn’t let me go inside. It is true that I didn’t really match their usual clients (laughs)... I finely managed to entered… and I was dumbfound…there was such an atmosphere!!! It was so different from the parties I used to go when I was young. There was a real osmosis between the lights and the music, it really drove me!... It made me feel so much younger!
This night shattered my view of things but above all the way I saw my life...I had a lot of free time, I was on pension you know… I talked to my grandson about it, he thought I went mad. Then he introduced me to a friend of his, a young French director and producer. We got along from the very beginning and he, with the help of his team, offered to help me becoming a DJ, working on a track, building an image etc... It was really fun!! Now I think that I am ready to make everybody move their ass on the dancefloor (laughs).
Indeed, I’d rather sign a contract with a record company than to sign up for the nursing home."

What A Guy!

So my thoughts are.... that no matter what you are about to do (wash the dishes) or where you are going (yoga class/the gym)
"DRESS UP"! That can mean anything. But my first rule is whatever you put on (the piece of clothing, the particular color or an accessory) it MUST FEEL "RIGHT" for you. Check in with yourself and be honest..."is this what I want to feel like; is this what I want to present to the world as ME today?" If not, change, take something off, or add another layer or accessory. Don't THINK too much. Let your eyes and your body lead you and trust it.
TAKE all BLACK clothing and put them in the rear of your closet...use BLACK as an accent. It really works as an accent, it adds depth...also WHITE adds expansion!
Most of all have fun and play.
Enjoy the day!
With playful affection,

"Fashion often revolves around feeling “IN”, being safe and going along with the crowd. Well, not for me!. I was never fearful of being extraordinarily different. I was, as well, never ignored for my fashion style. For some reason, I was (I am) more considered different and somewhat mysterious than ignored. I might have been lost in my own fashion world. However, I was never unaware of what was being “IN” in the fashion industry. Looking through fashion magazines I always see something that might be barely visible to others. This is how I am able to create my own style in fashion. I was never behind on fashion, yet never quite “IN” fashion. Having said that, let’s talk about “ THE silver hair.”
At first, my hair started to develop pale, very blond streaks. These out of the blue pale stripes reminded me of platinum elegance! Nice! Very nice!!! But if you gazed at it thoroughly enough, my hair was getting gray. GRAY!!!!????. Well, some might recognize it as gray hair, age, genetics, stress, etc. I see it differently. I see it simply- SILVER. I see it as PLATINUM ELEGANCE!!!! To others it might represent a sign of age. To me it portrays a photograph of a lady brushed in silver glitter, kissed by California sun, ocean breeze and sea mist. To me, my silver hair is a MYSTERY of all mysteries.
Martin Luther said: “The hair is the richest ornament of a woman”. My portrait is painted silver. For now, I like it. Someday, I might paint it differently. "
I have some more photos to post over the weekend, and I am still collecting stories about silver hair which you can email to Advancedstyleinfo@gmail.com. Also remember to check the sidebar and email Debrathenutritionsta@gmail.com, she is having so much fun hearing from all of you.
