Things that make me smile, touch my heart or I just love, by Janis Faye, Visual Director at Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture . . .
Coco Chanel touches my heart. For many reasons, I identify with her amazing biography. She created her life exactly how she wanted it and I admire that. I am a huge fan of Chanel because of her enduring legacy. This is my favorite Coco quote: "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different"
My spiritual practice is the core of my life and the reason I wake up happy every morning. In this busy world, my faith centers me, grounds me and allows me to be a sparkling light to those around me. It uplifts my heart and deepens my love for all living creatures big and small.
It is the perfect meditation for me . When I am styling flowers I am fully present in the moment and all of life's craziness fades away. Using my creativity while working with the beauty of nature makes me smile.
White Bedding & Vintage Fabrics
Waking up in an all white bed reminds me that everyday is a beautiful fresh start. I love the bright clean palette of all white and when I want to accent my white, I just go to my ever growing fabric collection and toss something fun in the mix.
Health & Wellness
In order to take care of others, we need to take great care of ourselves first. This is why I love living as healthy a life as possible - I have been a vegetarian since I was a child, my diet and exercise regime is very important to me. I give great care and attention to being the most healthy possible me I can be.
