Balancing motherhood and a growing business can be quite stressful; after all both seem to have their unique needs – daily challenges to nurture and successes to celebrate. Whether it’s a business building opportunity or a parent guidance moment, we all want to be present for every frame of our lives. The question is always, “how can we do it all?” Of course, the answer eludes most of us in a way that has us giving an inordinate amount of ourselves to growing one side – while promising the other that we’ll have time down the road to make good on that balance we constantly chase. Meet Mariah. She seems to have unlocked the magic balance potion and keeps all the plates spinning without breaking a sweat!

Lady Enchanting

Friends call her “Lady Enchanting” for her confident and charming sense of self. She’ll tell you that her 3 children keep her young and busy and if she could squeeze anything into her jam packed life; it would be a little more time to relax on her comfy garden chair. A successful business and kids that are thriving under Mariah’s watchful eye leaves little time for extra relaxation breaks. She knows though that taking time for herself to exhale and reflect on what she has accomplished raising confident and delightful children is an essential part of her enchanting lifestyle.

With her first son off to college this Fall, Mariah will continue to pursue her growing business ambitions as well as revel in her family time and position as chief guidance counselor to her kids. If she can carve out a few more minutes in her cozy lounge chair she’ll use it to ponder just how charming her life is these days!

婉约 Mariah

1) 解读一下时尚?
“Fashion comes & goes, only style lasts forever!” 谈及时尚,我便想到了香奈儿的名句:”时尚来去匆匆,唯有风格永恒!”

要完美呈现自己的风格,演绎自己的风采,最重要的是对自己最深刻的认知。不但要明白你自己的体型,面貌,气质,更要明白你精神层面的追求。不必在意年年流行色的变幻莫测,也不用追求季季流行款的更叠交替;却一定要明白自己的性格特质:睿智潇洒,优雅温婉,含蓄精美,欢快怡人;如流水,似风过….. 没有好坏之分,只是个人特质。什么能让你的眼神更灵动;什么能让你的身材更曼妙;怎样才能使你stand out, 自信满满; 怎样使你端坐期间,魅力四射….. 这便是我们要追求的时尚–一种自己的独特的风格!

一直以来,我很喜欢Casual living style….喜欢一种信手拈来的随意,豪不张扬的大气…. 虽然一开始那份不经意,其实需要精心打点,是一种厚积薄发。但只要有一双探索美的眼睛,有一份细致的心思,久而久之的体会终将让你每天的美丽呈现得effortless….

《安娜·卡列尼那》里面多莉嫂子这样点评说:一眼就知道这种简简单单需要花多少钱。更多的是心思。我们既要有撑得起大牌经典款的气场和潇洒,也能让那件街角小店淘到的花衬衣温暖流年。即使很贵的东西,买了,就不必用得太经心,战战兢兢就失去了本身的优雅。而那件自己十六岁时编制的毛衣,用了我一辈子喜欢的颜色,袖口还配了喜欢的相称风格的花布而让我倍加珍惜,每年在一个最喜欢的日子拿出来温暖自己….

随着岁月的流逝,越来越喜欢一些舒服自在的衣饰,就像喜欢过舒服自在的日子一样。素素的earth tone, 爽爽的棉麻料, 宽松地,自然地,随意地,用混搭形成自身风格……. 女人,要保持好气色和好身材。要自信,自立;要工作,要恋爱!

2)女人最动人的时刻:谈恋爱的时刻;当妈妈的时刻;还有就是五十岁以后的每一天!

3)Mariah Brand

Mariah, Mariah, they call the wind Mariah 美国有一首很老的歌,”他们把风叫做Mariah”. 雨是Tess, 火是Joe, 风就叫做Mariah. 风吹星星,徜徉天际,自由自在…像风一样的女人,喜欢像风一样自由,来去自如,行云流水,明快靓丽,变幻多姿。

Mariah, free like wind…

Mariah 品牌风格, 优雅自在, 舒服自然,简洁但要有造型感,流畅且要有时尚感。

黑白灰和地球大自然色始终是我钟爱的很有质感的色彩,在此基础上加入其他颜色作为季节和场合的点缀,例如灰色配艳红,往往会呈现出一个意想不到的完美组合,突出质感品味又不失靓丽时尚。最近几年流行的地球大自然色系也是很美的选择,比如米色,咖啡,卡其,浅土黄,淡海蓝……

自然材质的面料一直是我的首选, 精梳棉,凉爽麻,优质丝,还有经典毛呢料….. 始终不喜欢全化纤料制的服装。衬衫洋装要的是一份舒适清爽,安暖透气;外套大衣则自然要挺拔潇洒有款有型有气度…

清爽可爱秀气典雅的小碎花则是我的童年情节,一生的钟爱。

让一切的呈现都那么自然随意那么舒舒服服。没有太多刻意的雕琢和费尽心力的遮掩。品味,风格,和气质是我们永远的追求。所以我从来不主张人为抹去岁月在脸上留下的痕迹。人生丰盈广阔的阅历,在经过岁月积累沉淀后,体现得尤为珍贵突出。走过的路,读过的书,经历过的磨难,累积的学识终将成就你睿智的目光,优雅的谈吐,还有一颗坚定而慈爱的心!

无论什么样的年纪,你都可以让自己穿的很优雅有品味,形成自己独特的无与伦比的风格!

每一个优雅的女人的存在,都是上帝在提醒我们,这世界还有希望!(泰戈尔)
