100 Free Ways to Add a little style to your life....

Life has loveliness to sell, all beautiful and splendid things, blue waves whitened on a cliff, soaring fire that sways and sings, and children's faces looking up, holding wonder like a cup. Sara Teasdale

56. Organize from the inside out -- first, the heart and mind, then bedroom, bath, and closet, and then desk and calendar, and so forth. Keep the spaces nearest to you tidy and pleasant. Also, pay attention to your "command centers", the places from which you operate your life. A desk, a kitchen, or even your car could be your "command center", depending on the flow of your daily life.

57. For an instant fashion pick-me-up, polish shoes and purses.

58. Gently use a toothbrush and a bit of mild soap (like Woolite) to whiten lace, lingerie straps, etc.

59. Remember, a stitch in time really does save nine. Tend to spots, loose or broken stitches, loose buttons, pilling as soon as you possibly can.

60. Remember, the bed-head look is hard to pull off, unless you have a perfect and young face and have an entourage of make-up pros and hair stylists following you around. Most of us look better with a neat hair-do. Wavy-haired girls can get away with a little more tousled look, but even that must be artfully done.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art. Eleanor Roosevelt
