Excellent, easy read. Perfect for a vacation or something light before bed. She covers all the basics from Parisian fitness, fashion, food and beyond. Great little tips to be picked up or considered. I plan to put it on my book shelf for quick referral when I'm need of a 'Madame Chic' shake.

Easy read and funny too. Some of the advice needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I agree with another comment that says some of the advice is a bit pretentious.

Lessons within that could benefit many a North American. Although the author is likely about three decades my junior, it is enlightening to see how she has learned and appreciated the European way...live with less, reject the New Materialism and be mindful and appreciative of quality over quantity. A quick read but nice little book.

I generally agree w. the author. However, I found this bk to be a little pretentious & privileged in a bad, upper-middle-class way, & possibly a self-published bk before it was picked up by a major publisher.
