Life Well Lived: Fashion, Beauty, and Style Resources

As a part of the Life Well Lived Blogger panel, I was asked to answer the following question: "What are your favorite resources for inspiration on style, fashion, beauty and living life well?" This question is being discussed on's Life Well Lived page

I think I find fashion and beauty inspiration in the usual places. I love leafing through magazines for fashion and beauty tips. Lately I am enjoying More magazine because it shows gorgeous women about my age and I feel like the fashion and beauty tips are more relevant to me.   I also like Val's column in O.  Pinterest and blogs are fun sources for me too. 

I take inspiration from living life well from everywhere. Novels, memoirs, films. People who seem happy. My cats, who are good relaxation coaches.  I take a lot of inspiration from doing things I enjoy, like swimming. 

How do you live life well? Leave your comments here or at the LWL main page, and don't forget to enter the sweepstakes.

    Middle painted a wooden balsa strip for me to paste in the top of my blog. It is her henna type work (like the letters I posted that she made for graduation gifts). I am trying to figure out how to get long and skinny look to it. I think I saw there is a crop feature available. Wonder if it would be better to scan it or to photograph? And if photograph, get as close as possible or far away? Ideas?

    I am looking for it to be similar to size of the green strip at the top of your blog.
