April 18, 2016 / Video Post Notes:

I filmed this video several weeks ago.  Just about a week later, I began receiving quite a few questions from viewers and readers.  That was and is fantastic–thank you!  It’s also why some of those questions are not answered here.  I’m so sorry!  If you would like me to answer those, too, in a video (and any other questions you might have) in the coming weeks/month(s), please let me know.  In the mean time, I hope this video helps you get to know me at least a little better.

Thank you again for reading my blog and watching my videos!  ~Janis Lyn Johnson

(ABOVE) Among the questions I’ve been asked is whether I like to collect anything.  The answer is, “Yes!”  I love collecting china, especially chintzware and tea sets.  Examples of fine bone china chintzware include this 100 Years of Royal Albert 1920 Spring Meadow three-piece set (ABOVE) and this New Country Roses Rose Confetti five-piece set, also by Royal Albert (BELOW).  Note: If you would like me to do a future post on some of my own china, let me know.

    Thank you so much for inspiring me and so many others. Your taste in clothes is similar to mine but through your videos I have learned to piece outfits together a little differently which makes a big impact not only visually but also mentally. I feel much more confident in my outfits now. There is one small favour I would like to ask. Would you kindly make captioning available on all your videos? I am hearing impaired and was not able to fully appreciate your latest posting. Thank you again for sharing yourself with us.

It sounds wonderful. Thank you for telling me about it. I hope in the future I will have some time to read books again. Right now I am so busy with the blog and YouTube channel–and learning about how to do everything–that I don’t have any free time. I so appreciate your following my blog and channel, Rose. ~Janis

      Hi, Elizabeth! For quite a few years now I have been making my own organic fragrance. I place drops of my favorite organic essential oil (patchouli or lavender) in a base of organic coconut oil. The more drops I add, the stronger the fragrance. When it comes to commercial perfumes, I don’t buy them anymore for myself since I prefer to wear all-organic products on my skin. But my mother loves perfume, and I picked out a lovely scent for her that I do really like a lot. I spent an afternoon smelling fragrances and, hands down, found this one was my favorite. It’s quite expensive but lovely. It’s Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. A very pretty floral fragrance. I’ve bought it for her twice. Thank you for commenting! ~Janis

      Kate, I’ve never found anyone quite like Rosamunde Pilcher. I wish I could! But there is an American novelist I do like. You might like her, too. You can always look her up and see what you think. Her name is Anne Rivers Siddons. Her wonderful stories take place in the American south. Love her books, too. ~Janis

    I really enjoyed “meeting” you! I, too, had the same comments made to me when letting my hair go gray instead of continuing to color it. I didn’t have the confidence to continue growing it out, however, it’s been on my mind to let it return to its natural state. Currently I use a rinse so I can easily let it return. Thank you for sharing! You are beautiful and an inspiration.

I hope you come to a decision for yourself, one way or the other, that makes you truly, peacefully, contentedly happy. Please let me know how it’s going and what you decide. And also, please know that I’ll be your cheerleader/supporter–whether you decide to keep coloring or not. And thank you for supporting me by watching my video, Sue! ~Janis

      April 26, 2016 at 9:20 pm (1 year ago)

      Hi, Carmen. Thank you! The answer is: Moisturizer. That’s it. First I apply my facial moisturizer all over and let it dry. Then my powder makeup and any blush and eye makeup. (I put nothing but moisturizer under my eyes.) Lastly, after I’ve finished applying all my makeup, I dab under my eyes a little organic shea butter, too. Just before I walk out the door, I dab it with dry fingertips to remove any excess. The skin under my eyes has always been quite dry, so this is what I do. I don’t wear any makeup in that area because it emphasizes my wrinkles and doesn’t do much for covering up the dark circles anyway! Thanks for watching my video! ~Janis

          Hi, Carmen! I wear a moisturizer, 100 percent organic shea butter, under my eyes. I don’t wear powder, foundation, or concealer because they tend to emphasize the fine lines and be too drying. Thank you for asking! ~Janis

    I just discovered your blog, and I’ve bookmarked it! What a terrific blog! There are so many fashion blogs for and by the young (and I read many of them, too) but as we get older, there are different concerns, e.g., as you mentioned, our legs (and arms) are no longer the same. Also, once I stopped coloring my hair (and what a wonderful sense of freedom that gave!) I could (and needed) to begin wearing a whole new range of color. For what it’s worth, I think your hair, long and grey, is beautiful.

I hope to be back to posting on my blog and YouTube channel next week. Fingers crossed!!! Thank you for caring enough to comment about my absence!! Be back soon I hope!! ~Janis

    Hi Janis, I have just found your blog and am so excited. Finally, a soul sister! I am 50 and just going grey. I am looking forward to it because I genuinely like the colour. I know people will judge me and see me as old, but I’m OK with that. It’s about time that older women got a better rap, in my opinion. The only problem with my hair going grey is that it is not coming in evenly, so I am highlighting it to help even it out. I am going to start writing a blog myself and I will be quoting you, if OK.

      Rose, it’s just my personal opinion, but my concern with their lipsticks is that they have quite a few ingredients on the label that I don’t recognize (or appear questionable in terms of how healthy they are). I prefer fewer ingredients and ingredients that I know what they are (and I know they aren’t harmful). ~Janis

          Hi Rose. There are several items on the list that are not explained in parenthasese (what are they or what are they from?), so I am uncomfortable with them. Especially since I already know I don’t like all the ingredients that have numbers. I will put up with an iron ixide, for example, if everything else looks ok if not perfect. ~Janis
          This is their full list: diheptyl succinate, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, capryloyl glycerin/sebacic acid copolymer, cera alba [beeswax], candelilla cera [euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax], helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, behenyl alcohol, oleic/linoleic/linolenic polyglycerides, C12-18 acid triglyceride, lanolin, hydrogenated vegetable oil, cera carnauba [copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax], moringa oleifera seed oil, rubus idaeus (raspberry) seed oil, sorbitan tristearate, glyceryl caprylate, aroma [flavor], tocopherol, glycine soja (soybean) oil, lauroyl lysine, citric acid, linalool. May contain [+/-]: mica, CI 77891 [titanium dioxide], CI 75470 [carmine], CI 77491•CI 77492 •CI 77499 [iron oxides]

      Hi, Emily! During our winters (December-Late February), the coldest (nighttime) temperatures are usually in the mid- to high-30’s (degrees Farenheit), although I don’t think it did this year, since it was quite a warm winter. During the summer, the highest temperatures are around the low 90s (degrees Farenheit). Hope that answers your question. 🙂 ~Janis

    Hello Janis, I just discovered your Youtube channel and I love your style. I am your age.
    You look beautiful with your grey hair. Often women look older with coloured hair, especially with dark colours. But many women just don’t feel good with grey, i can understand this as well.
    I am looking forward to more films. I am from Germany.

    I really like your blog and vlogs. You have a beautiful voice. I found you through Susan from Fifty not Frumpy. I can relate to your style and make-up while I am living in Luxembourg (Europe) and being Italian. 🙂 Please allow me to explain – Susan is dressing less colorful (French way) and you use colors very tastefully (this is my Italian nature). 🙂 I don’t how your hair looked before, the only thing I am saying is “don’t change anything as it’s perfect”.

    You are so lovely. Thank you for sharing your journey and your perspective on living a beautiful, elegant life. On the gray hair … I have tried three times now to go to my natural color and each time my friends and family stage what I call, an intervention to keep me from “ruining” my appearance (their words). Some day I hope to have the courage to see it through. Perhaps if I spend a year on a desert island. Lol Looking forward to seeing your posts and videos.

      Anne, I am so sorry you’re having to go through that with family and friends. It’s interesting how much people who care about us do want to help but can inadvertently sting us a bit, too, while they’re at it. They don’t mean to, of course. They’re just trying to keep us safe. When and if the time is right for you, it will hopefully feel less difficult. It definitely took me some time to finally make the decision. Please, please keep me posted!! And if you decide not to color it, that’s terrific, too. What matters is what’s right for YOU. 🙂 Hugs ~Janis
