PrettyCity.comBeauty and Style from across the Pond

In the States, there's a mystique attached to all things European, especially when it comes to beauty and fashion. So, in a quest to unravel the mysteries of European style, I traveled to London and Paris.  Here are the trends I unearthed across the pond...

Carrie was wrong
After reading several stories about how French women do everything in heels - and spending far too much time watching Sex and the City -I was convinced these graceful creatures viewed the world from a 4-inch perch. And while I did spot one uber-chic woman riding a bike in heels just off the Champs-Élysées, for the most part, ballerina flats and gladiator sandals seemed to be de rigueur for French women. The trend continued in London where I saw barely a woman in heels, perhaps because the city's vast territory is best navigated via tube (the subway) or by foot. To prove the point,

Pretty ThaiSa-wat-dee Kah! Our blogger gets oh-so-pretty in Thailand

"Hello" in Thai! I am back and home never felt so good. Two weeks in Thailand starting in Phuket traveling across the sea to Ko Phi Phi Island and then jetting to the capital, Bangkok, can leave a beauty feeling...well, bedraggled. Worth every heavy suitcase, exhausting plane ride and sanitizing wipe? Yes - absolutely!

Most notably, I experienced a totally different culture and had the fortunate opportunity to observe their beauty habits. It was amazing. I witnessed fish pedicures - check out this story - and yes, it's real. I can attest to the Asian culture's mad love for Hello Kitty and can also confirm that a Thai massage is indeed the best massage one can ever treat themselves to. There is so much to write about hence I will serve up weekly editions of Beauty from Thailand!
