Confidence-THE Secret Ingredient
How to be Parisian,
Wherever you Are
Love, Style, and Bad Habits
I will admit that I first bought this book by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas because I wanted to embrace my bad habits instead of always working to better myself. And the first few pages I read in the bookstore appealed to my inner rebel. Later while soaking in the tub with my hot chocolate candle lit and Beck’s Morning Phase playing, I read how to mother like a Parisian, wear 4 inch heels all the time, and just say no to plastic surgery. Not only was it funny and cleverly written, it was brilliant. It champions individuality, confidence in oneself, and a compassionate acceptance of our ‘good’ and ‘bad’ traits.
‘Take the time to take time because nobody else will do it for you.
And don’t forget to daydream in the bath, just like when you were little.’
Great advice for life, for how to approach your work and your play time.
