Faux Fuchsia’s Fabulous Philosophy

(Don’t think I wasn’t tempted to spell Philosophy with an “F”!)

Faux Fuchsia:

..I think that you should say no to clutter and yes to having a great group of friends. Pay attention to grooming, because when you look good you’ll feel better. Make your bed. Never pay retail for high end designer clobber. Do stuff you enjoy and feel passionate about. Learn to cook. Buy a parlux hairdryer. Keep your polish chip free. Learn the power of gratitude. And stay away from battery hen eggs and chooks. Free range is what you want.

And speaking of Leos…

Today is petit monsieur’s birthday…he’s 14 today.  He’s been having a growth spurt lately and everything they say about teenagers and how much they eat is true. It’s like living with a lumberjack. The first words out of his mouth in the morning are, “I’m hungry.”

Karen’s working on her first guest post; it’s going to be fabulous and informative!

  1. Oh, I love Faux Fuchsia and her fabulous blog! I am inspired by her wisdom, energy and wit.
    Happy birthday to the 14 year old! My 15 year old nephew spent his summer with us; I felt as though I lived in the kitchen and the grocery store. 😀

  2. My son turned 14 a few months ago Pseu. Keeping him fueled has become a major preoccupation for me most days. Hang in there!

  3. Happy Birthday to your son! I understand the lumberjack scenario. Just feed him–it’s the only way.

    By the way, I LOVE your state. We just spent 10 days there. We loved every minute. You are so fortunate to live in such a wonderful state. I often think about the stalwarts who were the early residents of California.

  4. FF has a great outlook on life. As do you… Hope the petit Monsieur has a wonderful birthday. Love your skincare tips – you ALWAYS give such good advice and have fabulous skin…. XX

  5. Thank you so much for mentioning battery hen eggs vs free range. Every little bit of education helps! you are awesome!!!

  6. Happy birthday to your boy – mine turned 14 just a few weeks ago! I know what you mean about the eating … When he’s not sleeping or skateboarding or playing sport, mine is chewing his way through the pantry/fridge/stovetop!

  7. Happy Birthday to your son…ENJOY, ENJOY!! Just from this snippet…I think I would like this blog! I know I like yours!!!!!
