French women seem to have a special knack for life's most important things--food, love, raising children. And in matters of beauty and style, they appear to be at an unfair advantage. But the good news is that everything French women know can be learned. . .. French women are not born more attractive than anyone else. They simply learn at a very young age how to feel beautiful, confident, and sexy, inside and out. It's an allure that outlasts youth--in fact, some of France's most celebrated women are femmes d'un certain âge. Experience only makes them more irresistible. Growing up, Jamie Cat Callan had a French grand-mère to instruct her on style, grooming, and genuinely liking her reflection in the mirror. Now she shares that wisdom along with advice from other French women on fragrance, image consulting, makeup, and more, and shows you how to: Discover the power of perfume Find mentors who will help hone your personal style Begin at the ends--hands, feet, and hair Choose lingerie that makes you feel magnifique Get an internal makeover and nourish your soul Embrace your age gracefully and gorgeously Bid au revoir to Botox, fad diets, and agonizing over every imperfection, and say hello to the truly timeless beauty that comes with making the most of your own unique je-ne-sais-quoi. Praise for Jamie Cat Callan's Bonjour, Happiness "With warmth and sincerity, Callan shares that most precious of French life lessons--the art of saying 'enough.' "--Elizabeth Bard, author of Lunch in Paris "Clever, insightful. . .provides immediate happiness. Voilà!" --Karen Karbo, author of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel

People say the French stay slim thanks to their good wine and regular meals. This might prove to be the case, but the hottest erotica currently being written flows from the sexy pens of French women of letters. On the basis that writers of erotica are often known to find inspiration in their own lives and experiences, one can only draw certain conclusions! Dominique Aury under the penname Pauline Reage wrote "The Story of O" in 1954 and opened the floodgates for a whole new, sulphurous tradition of female erotica, since appropriated by female writers all over the world, including Anne Rice in the USA writing as A.N. Roquelaure. But the wonderfully perverse imagination of French authors has continued unabated ever since, and the daughters of O are now legions, including leading lights like Catherine Millet, Regine Deforges, Francoise Rey, Vanessa Duries, Florence Dugas, Alina Reyes, and the famous fashion designer Sonia Rykiel, all of whom contributed to this collection. French literary sex is hot, elegant, gently perverse, quietly shocking, and always arousing -- and these twenty-nine stories will leave no reader indifferent.

To get to happily ever after, sometimes you need to start from scratch.... Abbey Ross, who runs her own bakery in Oakland, California, is known for her visually stunning wedding cakes. But lately, Abbey’s own love life has become stale. According to her best friend, Bendrix, Abbey’s not the spontaneous young woman she was when they were teenagers listening to the Cure and creating attention-grabbing graffiti. Of course, her failed relationship with a womanizing art forger might have something to do with that. Nevertheless, it’s time for Abbey to step out of the kitchen—and her comfort zone—and Bendrix has even handpicked a man for her to date. Samuel Howard is everything Abbey’s dreamed of: handsome, successful, and looking to raise a family. But a creamy icing might be needed to hide a problem or two. When Samuel complains about disrespect for the institution of marriage, Abbey’s reminded of her nontraditional family, with thirteen children from various mothers. And when Samuel rails about kids having kids, Abbey thinks of her twenty-year-old sister who’s recently revealed her pregnancy. Soon Abbey is facing one disaster after another and struggling to make sense of it all. Her search for love has led her down a bitter path, but with the help of her unique family and unwavering friends, she just might find the ooh la la that makes life sweet. READERS GUIDE INCLUDED

In this deftly funny travel narrative, an Anglophone couple escape to the French Riviera, encountering beauty, romance, ooh-la-la moments, and more hijinks and hilarity than they had ever bargained for. When Stephen Foey and his wife planned their trip along the Cote d'Azur, they dreamt of stunning beaches, opulent hotels and gourmet food. But in their wildest dreams, they couldn't have imagined the host of oddball characters and comical situations they'd encounter there. In the tradition of Bill Bryson and Peter Mayle, Stephen Foey describes one of the world's most sought-after landscapes with a humorist's eye and self-deprecating wit. Whether our protagonist is fumbling for exactly the right - and therefore utterly wrong - French phrase, white-knuckling the autoroutes while the locals cruise by, or getting trapped in a high-tech European toilet, he never fails to entertain. His wife is a perfect foil, moving breezily through the holiday, charming and disarming everyone she meets, and keeping her husband calm and sane throughout their journey to over forty towns and villages. With vivid description of sights and attractions, cleverly interwoven with Foey's British sense of humour, Ooh-la-la Land is a must-read for anyone travelling to the south of France."
