French 101

I love France. More specifically Paris. Yes, I am indeed a Francophile. Always have been. Why, I have no clue. I chalk it up to being part French although my brother doesn't feel the same way I do. Hey, what can I say? Not everyone can be as stylish and trendy as me. The brother just doesn't get it. There is just something about Paris that is magical. It can't even be described which always makes it so hard to write about. Waking up to the smell of crusty breads fresh from the oven, the sounds of shops opening up, bicycles pedaling by your window. Nope, doesn't do it justice. Each time I went back I found something new that made me fall in love even more. I walk on clouds when I'm there. Literally. I have pictures to prove it. Paris is amazing.

I am always excited to find a product to bring Paris or France into my home. Whether it's a picture to hang or a dress that screams "Parisian lady walking down the Champs Elysees", yes, I'm going to buy it. Which is why I was thrilled to find a product called Votre Vu. It's a double bonus - a fabulous product that works amazingly well on your face and body AND here's the clincher.....IT'S FRENCH!! You can imagine how happy I was to discover this. Not only is it from France, but the labels are also in French (also in English) Brilliant. Every morning and night when I open my medicine cabinet I see those perfectly lined bottles of Votre Vu smiling back at me and it's almost as if for a moment I can lose myself in the ultimate French dream - living in Paris. And at affordable prices!

For now, I must be content with my face full of French cream until the day comes when I finally make it happen and jump the pond to the other side. But now it's time to prepare for Bastille Day. French restaurant here we come.

*Disclaimer - I don't speak or read French. Love carries me through.....
