I guess, you already know that I am slightly (well, maybe a bit more than that, but lets leave it as"slightly") obsessed with France and Paris, in particular. This cute book was an answer to my craving for everything French while I was going through yet another period of nostalgia for Paris. Written by Debra Ollivier who worked for Harpers, Salon, Le Mode and spent a decade of her life in France, Entre Nous: A Woman's Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl was a truly self-help book, a pleasure to own and fun to read.

To begin with, it's adorable. I really like the cover and little cute drawings. It's printed on a soft paper that's very nice to touch. It's a kind of book you can curl up on a sofa with or take it to bed and have an enjoyable read before you fall asleep.

It's not just a fashion book, it's a guide to a French girl's secrets to living a life of pleasure and style whether it comes to beauty, cooking, fashion, family, holidays or home. It also contains "pages from the French girl's book" and references to famous French women, books and movies that could help us learn the essence of French living and understand the mystery of "je ne sais quoi" every French woman seems to have.

Little gem, don’t you think?
