My France Fascination

It has been said that France is a mythical place, exuberant and instinctly chic - there is no other place that is eternally stylish. Here's a few of my bloggiest things when it comes to everything French!

Do As The French.....

And never sleep alone! And with the help of Jamie Cat Callan's magnum opus French Women Don't Sleep Alone (Citadel) you won't have too! Callan's tome gives practical, sexy and downright enticing advice on modern/everyday seduction. It examines the great 'La Femme' archetype and how any gay (no matter her geographical location) can achieve it with much (insanely chic) success!

Strut Your Stuff in.....

In epic pumps by the shoe maestro Christian Louboutin! The Paris born shoe designer has truly mastered the art of shoes and I believe that every woman should own at least 1 pair in her lifetime....


Detox in Vogue...

I've always been intrigued by Paris's beautiful people, long known for their ability to smoke and drink into the wee hours without incurring telltale wrinkles or extra pounds - well with the city's first 'detox hotel' - the Hôtel Gabriel, located in the Marais offers it's guest the uber popular Biooster Grog (which happens to be Carla Bruni-Sarkozy's new obsession) an orange-and-herb beauty drink said to have a powerful detoxifying effect on the skin. So the next time you are in the city of lights indulge in all the country's delicious offering just stop by Hôtel Gabriel so you won't bring home any unwanted baggage!
