So many people are afraid to age but really it's a day when you can look back and also look forward to so many more things in your life. I was reading didn't finish yet a book called Bringing Up Bebe about mothering in France vs. It certainly sounds like this book is full of little nuggets of wisdom Kim! There is a reason why Frenchwomen are envied for their style. Rowena rolala loves. So I'm sure I will love it. This seems like an amazing book, Kim, I've to read it, because I love French style, it's always chic and timeless and I love this quote of Karl Lagerfeld! Hi Kim, this sounds like a great book!
It's true, the French women dress very simple but very put together.
Even the bags they carry are simple totes, nothing flashy. I have so many books lined up but I will check out this book today. I need to add this book to my list. I've stopped reading for a while, really need to get back to it again.

I have this book too. I admire the French style very much. They are just so naturally chic and elegant. These kinds of books always make me smile. It's true, culturally French women are a bit different from North American women, but overall, they're individuals, just like we are - some over indulge in food and go on diets. Most absolutely don't invest in their hair that one almost made me laugh.
The one thing I do think they do a lot more than we do, which rarely gets mentionned, is reward themselves with time with friends, rather than treats. Spending time with good people is so much more enriching than a slice of cake, but I think with the big distances we often have to travel to connect with friends here in North America, cake can be a lot more accessible. Interesting book, many things are true, thanks for shared this tips, this book have a spanish version?
Oooh, I want to read this book now. I've always envied the European's flair for chicness and timeless style. I still like having fun trying these crazy trends, but one day, I want to have that effortless, put together look nailed down.
This sounds like a great read and perfect for your beauty blog I didn't know about this book but it sounds like a good read! Thank you for the review! Sounds like a very interesting book : From Brussels, with Love. I never realised these were the inner thoughts of the every day French woman! They seem very like myself in that I like effortless looks that don't seem contrived or worked on but flow naturally, from make up to fashion.
Maybe I aaam French. Nope, still got that awful accent and can't roll my R's. Rosemary x rosemaryofelephants. Thanks for the review - I will have to agree, having a good wardrobe foundation with pieces that flatter make all the difference.

And hair. A good hair day changes everything. This sounds like a book every woman should have on her bookshelf! The tips are so useful. I love Coco Chanel's quote.
Even when I go to the post office first thing in the morning, I always put on normal clothes and brush my hair so I don't look like I just rolled out of bed! What great lessons! Ugh, I really need to cut out the junk food, but i'm so hungry and frantic to eat something quickly while taking care of the baby! I do agree that great skin, great hair, and an effortless wardrobe are key! I think this is a book that I would absolutely love.
