Sara Sabaté, Lisa Eldridge, What We Eat & Ten-Item Wardrobe Follow Up



In this week's video, Ten-Item Wardrobe Follow Up, I answer questions such as: Do I really wear those clothes everyday? and What do I do with clothes from prior seasons?

In this post I also thought it would be fun to share my favorite YouTube channels with you. Some of you might already be familiar with these channels, but for many, I know they will be a new treat.

Sara Sabaté

Sara Sabaté is a beauty blogger who does videos in both French and Spanish (sorry, no English!). Her hair and makeup tutorials (her chignon series are my favorite) are so informative and inspiring. You can usually follow the steps even if you don't understand what she is saying.

Here is one of my favorite videos of hers called Chignon diva 60s:



Visit her YouTube channel for more lovely tutorials.

Lisa Eldridge

Lisa Eldridge is a British makeup artist who has the most amazing YouTube channel for makeup lovers. She has such a lovely, soothing way about her (you'll see what I mean when you watch her videos) and her makeup tips are very achievable for us non-professionals. Check out her makeup tutorials on her YouTube channel.

Here is one of my favorites (surprise, surprise) 'No Make-Up' Make-up



The Hungry Planet
I ran across an article in the Daily Mail this past weekend called 'The Great Global Food Gap'. It showcased pictures from the book, The Hungry Planet, by Peter Menzel and shows portraits of families from all around the world surrounded by what they eat in a week. I was so intrigued by these photos (note the families from poorer countries eat more healthfully with more fruits and vegetables and little to no processed foods). After reading this article, I ordered The Hungry Planet and Material World: A Global Family Portrait, both by Peter Menzel.

Learning how other people live and eat has always fascinated me. I am really looking forward to reading both of these books to see if I am inspired to make changes in my own life. I'll keep you updated.

Have a wonderful week!

Love the makeup tutorial, and adore the chignon video. I was just about to cut my hair but am determined to try this style, or something similar, before I do. I love the idea of wearing my hair up, but am way behind in the execution. Thanks!

Hello Jennifer,

I just got hold of your book because I love everything Paris and was pleasantly surprised about the bonus of the 10-piece wardrobe. It's exactly where I'm at right now, having lost a few pounds last year. I embrace simplicity and quality. Thanks for breaking it down into a manageable process for the rest of us.

Aside from that, I'm happy that you have parlayed your learning in (and passion of) a different country into something productive for yourself, and helpful to others.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Jennifer,

What I love about the way you do the ten-item wardrobe is how you make it luxe without either breaking the bank or copping to thoughtless consumerism.

Showing us how you really wore through that silk blouse was very grounding - loved it!

For me, it's really rewarding to wear something "to death" and then refresh with something new. There's no guilt in it!

Fabulous as always...
