I’ve recently become obsessed with Debra Ollivier’s fabulous and oh so french literary creation, Entre Nous: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl. Full of french fashion advice, recipes, film recommendations, and mini bios of great french women of history, I love the book’s inspirational and empowering tone, demonstrated in her description of the quintessential french woman:
“She is an essence, a way of being, a mindset—and she exists in us all. She is that part of us that is free—and not bound up by the joyless strings of morality or guilt. She’s that part of us that has a sense of continuity in life, that doesn’t rush, that feels sexy for no apparent reason. She is, more fundamentally, that part of us that does not want to live according to what others think she should be. She is her own woman. Entirely.”
I highly recommend this book to any girl who loves being both fearless and feminine (and who secretly wishes she lived in Paris!).
Au revior and happy reading!
