The most beautiful makeup on a woman is passion, but cosmetics are easier to buy. -Yves Saint Laurent
If there’s one thing that the French know and do well, aside from romance that is, it would be fashion. One of the world’s most renown fashion designers, Frenchman Yves Saint Laurent, captures the truth of beauty in his above quotation, and I couldn’t agree more. The most beautiful thing that a man or woman can put on is passion.
Coming from someone who made a career and reputation out of clothing design, Yves Saint Laurent knew that it is not clothes, or beauty, or money, or a perfect body that makes someone beautiful, it is passion. Passion is magnetic and electrifying, and it is much more precious than the most expensive accessory one could buy.
Passion takes effort though. It takes self-knowledge. It can not be bought. I must be felt and followed.
Mondays are the perfect opportunity to allow your passion for life to flow, there is truly no better natural energizer. Make this week a week that you spend less money on things for yourself and more time on allowing yourself to be yourself.
