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

Childhood Friends Reunite to Rendezvous! All giggles and wiggles, Lisa and Amy sealed their friendship under the pink ruffles of a canopy bed, promising to be friends forever. They remained inseparable until an argument over Lisa’s prom date divides them. In a plan that could only be devised by their heavenly Father, Amy and Lisa end up in the same hospital emergency room years later. With their promise to always be there for each other unexpectedly fulfilled, the two friends grow close again. Amy reminds Lisa of one of their childhood promises yet to be realized—their plan to rendezvous in Paris. Amy and Lisa find a way to make good on their Parisian promise from thirty years ago and pack their bags for the adventure of a lifetime. From becoming unexpected counselors for a rocky marriage to scaling the Eiffel Tower to winking at Mona Lisa in the Louvre, these two Sisterchicks find the treasures of Europe can’t compare with the gems of a friendship renewed for eternity! Story Behind the Book “Each of the Sisterchicks books portrays the reality of how a close friendship between two women can draw them closer to God, and reveal clear direction for their futures. In Sisterchicks Say Ooh-La-La!, readers discover the value of rekindling an old friendship and replacing old, incorrect assumptions with new truth. I hope readers will take away a sense of God’s immense plan for His children and His unending grace in every season of life.” —Robin Jones Gunn From the Trade Paperback edition.

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."

Inspired by her French grandmother, author Jamie Cat Callan shows women how to stop chasing perfection—and start finding joy in life. As a young girl, Jamie Cat Callan was fascinated by her French grandmére. Though she had little money, Jamie’s grandmother ate well, dressed well, and took joy in simple, everyday pleasures. As Jamie journeyed through France as an adult, she gained more insight into the differences between les femme Française et Americaine. French women—whether doctors, shop owners, or housewives—don’t worry about being thin enough, young enough, or accomplished enough. They age gracefully and celebrate their bodies. They know how to balance their lives—to love food without overeating; to work hard, but not too hard; to relish friends and family and still make time for themselves. Now Jamie draws on everything French women have taught her and shows you how to: Buy and consume less—and enjoy more Look like a million bucks for just a few francs Find time to be alone Flirt à la française Rediscover your own mystery Perfection isn’t attainable, but happiness is. And this uplifting book, from the acclaimed author of Parisian Charm School, shows every woman how to embrace it—and savor it. “Callan explores her French roots to find fulfillment in life’s simple pleasures. The spirit of the book centers around the idea that: ‘In America, we’ve come to think that bigger and faster is better. But suppose it is the opposite: smaller and slower is better?’ Through her travels, interviews and self-exploration, the author reveals the importance of living in the moment, and she offers delightful recipes for living . . . tangible suggestions on how to live like the French no matter where you are.” —Kirkus Reviews

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
