Description

Inspired by her French grandmother, author Jamie Cat Callan shows women how to stop chasing perfection -- and start finding joy in life.

As a young girl, Jamie Cat Callan was fascinated by her French grandmére. Though she had little money, Jamie's grandmother ate well, dressed well, and took joy in simple, everyday pleasures. As Jamie journeyed through France as an adult, she gained more insight into the differences between les femme Française et Americaine.

French women -- whether doctors, shop owners, or housewives -- don't worry about being thin enough, young enough, or accomplished enough. They age gracefully and celebrate their bodies. They know how to balance their lives -- to love food without overeating; to work hard, but not too hard; to relish friends and family and still make time for themselves. Now Jamie draws on everything French women have taught her and shows you how to:


• Buy and consume less -- and enjoy more

• Look like a million bucks for just a few francs

• Find time to be alone

• Flirt à la française

• Rediscover your own mystery


Perfection isn't attainable, but happiness is. And this uplifting book, from the acclaimed author of Parisian Charm School, shows every woman how to embrace it -- and savor it.

"Callan explores her French roots to find fulfillment in life's simple pleasures. The spirit of the book centers around the idea that: 'In America, we've come to think that bigger and faster is better. But suppose it is the opposite: smaller and slower is better?' Through her travels, interviews and self-exploration, the author reveals the importance of living in the moment, and she offers delightful recipes for living... tangible suggestions on how to live like the French no matter where you are." -- Kirkus Reviews
