I had the great pleasure of meeting Gillean on a photo shoot while I was living in Los Angeles. Gillean is a stylist, designer, model, and artist. To be honest I don't know her well; but I was struck by her grace, style, and vivacious personality. I asked Gillean to share with me what makes her feel beautiful. Her answer could not be more in line with my own thoughts on beauty and life.
"The answer is pretty simple: I'm at peace with who I am, my past, my life. These past few years I have let go of people, possessions and work which bring me no joy. As a result my life is simple, my friends are true and my work satisfying."
Thank you for sharing Gillean. And thank you reader for taking some time to visit my blog. Cheers and I wish you a very happy new year. xx Camilla
