"A guide for women who yearn to channel Audrey Tautou. . . .

(The New York Times)

I learned this yrs ago, and it talks about this in here....
Make everything you do count, don't wait for high days and holidays to make things special. Use your favourite pufume to wash the dishes in. Use your best cups and saucers for that cuppa when you get in from the school run. That delishious smellimg bubble bath you got for christmas, use it? Don't save it for that perfect occasion, that doesn't happen, or if it does, the fragrance has gone by the time you do... Basically live it now, do it, experience it all, now. Life's the journeys and not the odd destination here and there. There's lots more in the book of value. Like I said, I had this epiphany years ago, but still not soon enough!
There are some references to Madame Chic dotted throughout but I was more interested to see how the author manages to run her home and maintain such a positive frame of mind...I already have her first book and follow her blog and was curious to see how she makes it all work.
I read this is two sittings and can't wait to incorporate some of her suggestions into my everyday life.
Thank you Jennifer for a truly inspiring book.
