How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are

For Christmas I was super lucky to get some books that'd been on my wishlist for a while. They're fun, coffee table type things that you feel a little guilty buying for yourself (or is that just me?) and this one was from my grandparents - How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are.

I'd asked for it because 1) You know I'm a loser who wants to be Parisian so bad and 2) I'm a bit obsessed with Caroline de Maigret, who co-wrote the book, alongside three other ladies who I'd not heard of but are of course equally stylish and talented. Friends in real life too, they're like a way cooler version of the Sex And The City girls! I love the simple cover and the illustration because someone said if you took away the ciggie it looks like me and I will always be grateful to her for that lie <3

It has advice on everything, from what to cook at a dinner party to how to pretend you have a lover (yep) and all in all is just a fun and witty read. I think a lot of people would find this book to be quite cringey and pretentious but I don't think it's meant to be taken seriously, it's just tongue in cheek (watch this video!) I feel like the ladies are just sending themselves up and I love when people can laugh at themselves so I thought it was really funny! If you're buying it looking for style advice then I think you'd be disappointed as there's not much fashion or beauty in it, it's more about the Parisian attitude.

It was a really quick read with some lovely, Tumblr-esque photos - all in all, it's just a fun book to flick through! Will I be adopting any of this Parisian advice? Probably not, but it's a relief to know it's not as effortless as it seems ;-)

Have you read this book? Anyone else a wannabe Frenchie?
