This week it dawned on me that unless you read viva on the website viva70.com you miss out on my weekly chat …Agh! Weekly rap is the weekend hurrah……Please check out the viva mag online… there are now 120 articles published from our creative contributors and moi.This week I hope you enjoy the Beauty and Ageing article as much I did in thinking and writing about it. Richard Avedon’s photos continue to redefine and extend our ideas about beauty. He’s one of my favourite photographers. My article about trends in interior styling was so much fun. 1940’s glam is not my style but I love the look…check it out….shabby chic with a dash of Provence is more my style…lots of shabby!
I’m struggling with the rain and cold this week here in Oz. So after a sooky start to the day I decided to ” Think like a Scottish Highlander!”, don my Barbour jacket, tartan scarf and hiking boots and head off for a lake walk. Marvellous… face stinging, whipped by the wind, lungs full of fresh air..I feel alive!
I hope your weekend is lovely wherever you are in the world…. whether you’re soaking up the sun, heading off to Wimbledon, catching a film, renovating or spending time with family and friends. Make it count. Big thanks to our new subscribers across the world. Huge thanks too to Leanne for sending these amazing photos of the Matterhorn in Switzerland where she’s attending a conference… I couldn’t wait to share them with you.
