I have to finally come to terms with the fact that even though I was born in Italy, I am a Francophile. When I was a flight attendant, no matter how tired I was we we arrived in Paris something just lit up inside me. Gorgeous city. A lot of cafes, a lot of places to sit, talk and enjoy yourself. I love the pace and grace of European culture and when I picked up Jennifer L. Scott’s book, I practically read it cover to cover in one sitting. I interrupted myself only to email her and ask her for an interview.
Jennifer’s charming book reveals the lessons that she learned while she was living with a chic family as an exchange student in Paris. I say chic but I also mean sensible. While it is was a completely entertaining read, it is also lesson in elegant civility. The chapters Clutter is Not So Chic and Reject the New Materialism hit home for me just as much as Look Presentable Always. Jennifer is just as charming as her book! In it she talks about trying to lead a thoughtful, cultivated life as the mother of small children in the casual land of Los Angeles. On her popular blog The Daily Connoisseur , she shares more detailed secrets of the book including the hardest of all, Liberate Yourself with the 10 Item Wardrobe. That has become quite the hot topic!
Bonus takeaway: Listen in to hear just how she went about getting this book published. This just might push YOU into doing something brave for yourself.
