I’ve always really loved this picture of Josephine Baker and Joe Louis in Paris in the 1950s. The photo caption from Bettman/Corbis read that Ms. Baker was encouraging Mr. Louis to sing with her during her opening performance at the Club Des Champs Elysees, but I’ve always wondered about the whole night: What did they talk about? Who were they with that evening? There are other photos of them together in this time frame and it’s clear that they were friends (not romantic) and probably had very interesting conversations.

On my days off, one of my favorite things to do is to create new DIY beauty recipes! I usually make myself a smoothie and then mix random foodie ingredients together and slather them all over… it’s fun! My skin is always glowing and healthy looking afterwards!
“People who read books in public places are regarded with suspicion because they appear self-sufficient. When you seem self-sufficient, other people think that you think you’re better than them, and they get resentful.”
