Of course we were all over the moon meeting Tish who did not disappoint. Tish is an American writer who moved to France for a job, fell in love and never came back. She writes about her life as woman in France and the unique mindset of women there. She’s as chic and witty as she sounds on her blog and so gracious. I adore her blog and point of view. Her book, which is very much an extension of her blog, shares the French sensibility that aging is something to be celebrated and the mature woman or A Femme D’un Certain Age, as her blog is titled, have a huge appeal in France. Quite the opposite of how we feel here in the states. If you met Tish you’d think she knows the secret of this appeal. She just glowed and looked pretty, all in black. It’s hard to tell her age. She’s chic yet very natural.
This book has a lot more to it than French style, it’s about taking care of yourself. I love the whole idea of making more time for ourselves and living your best possible life, and appreciating the age we are. I really needed this book. One of my goals is to slow down, enjoy life’s rituals and be kinder to myself and those around me.
Now I’m off to do a nighttime mask!
