This is an eclectic selection of blogs about life in Europe, politics, writing, recipes and life in general by www.donnalanenelson.com.

to writers a few years ago.
I'm the first to admit I'm vain. I want to look my best.
Now that my hair is growing (I call it chemo chic) I've changed my look and I love that people tell me that I look good. And some tell me others have said to them how great I look.
I don't plan to ever be a red head again. I will keep it white and short with big earrings. I have purchased some new clothes from the marché. The outfit in the photo cost 30 Euros. I also bought a pair of pants, top and belt at the marché for a total of 15 Euros.
As a writer and at my age I can afford to be eccentric.
The only problem with the big earrings is that when the Tramatane is blowing behind me the earrings tend to slap me in the face.
