Well, it’s that time again!


Every quarter, I GIVEAWAY a really great gift to one of the Annual Members for my Virtual Adventures Club where I interview Women of Global Interest!


This year’s series has been all about women doing extraordinary things with their lives in or about Paris or France.


I have had so much fun researching and sourcing my Giveaways, and my favourite is always putting together my own personal French Gift Box!


I look for items that scream femininity and elegance and so here they are!


My French Gift Box (7 Items)


  1. An Eiffel Tour-themed hand-painted scarf or shawl:  This is quite large but so lightweight that you can throw it over a jacket or coat.  I purchased the last one of these. The designer: @Liga Kandele





2. Eiffel Tour Tote: This is my own design. I own this Eiffel Tower logo and imprinted it on this 100% cotton tote bag. So handy. I take mine everywhere with me.





3. Woman of a Certain Age Pen and Notepad


4. Woman of a Certain Age Key chain


5. Paris-themed Table Napkins


6. A Bar of Lavender Soap


All in the My French Gift Box!



7. Paris-themed Colouring Book Secret Paris with a full set of coloured felt pens: I got into this myself because a dear follower of this blog sent me one.  (Thank you Nicki!)


One night as I was watching TV after a stressful workday, I started doodling and found it so so relaxing.


Now I pick up and doodle every chance I get.

Don’t Miss My Next Interview! It is FREE


Join me in conversation with Lindsey Tramuta

Author of The New Parisienne

And I will be Giving Away Her Book To One Lucky Winner!


Tuesday, October 12th, 2021

12:30 EST/9:30 am Pacific/6:30 pm Paris/5:30 London  



Taking on a deeply entrenched French cliché, Lindsey Tramuta‘s new book The New Parisienne is getting a lot of attention as it focuses on one of the city’s most prominent features, its women.

Lifting the veil on the mythologized Parisian woman—white, lithe, ever-fashionable—in this interview, Lindsey demystifies this oversimplified archetype and recasts the women of Paris as they truly are, in all their complexity.
