READING: Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott’s self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life. Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls “Madame Chic,” mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement. Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV. Additional time spent with “Madame Bohemienne,” a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian joie de vivre, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life. While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman’s adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces. Each chapter of Lessons from Madame Chic reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic’s tutelage—tips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (le no-makeup look), among other tips. From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. Lessons from Madame Chic is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian je ne sais quoi in her own arrondissement.

READING: ABOUT THE BOOK I learned many lessons from my time in Paris, but the most profound lesson I learned was to lead a life of passion. Every detail of life can become exceptional if you allow it to be so. You hold the key. When filled with laughter, friendship, art, intellectual endeavors and a certain verve life can be extraordinary. You should know, this book is a quick read. Before you can really settle in to figure out whether you disagree with it or love it, you’re at acknowledgments and find yourself thoroughly entertained. At a modest 146 pages, this work is more reminiscent of a lighthearted diary than a manual tightly packed with style tips. It is no surprise then that the book originated as a blog entry on The Daily Connoisseur, Jennifer L. Scott’s beauty and lifestyle blog. A crossover between a memoir, a humor column, and fly-on-the-wall reporting, Lessons from Madame Chic: The Top 20 Things I Learned While Living in Paris, successfully provides solutions on how to incorporate the best of Parisian wisdom into our daily lives. As a University of Southern California student with understanding parents (read: who agreed to pay for the trip) and a personal sense of adventure (read: a very limited grasp of the French language), Jennifer L. Scott decides to take a semester abroad to expand her cultural horizons beyond California’s laid-back attitude. Her time spent in Paris teaches her that a little formality in our daily lives can reignite pleasure in performing even the simplest of tasks (i.e. having meals at the same time every day or dressing appropriately for bed every night). MEET THE AUTHOR Evelyn Dumonte hails from a very tiny country of Estonia...you'll find her traveling, reading, participating in general "debauchery", and making new friends. She has several degrees and some accolades but she'd much rather tell you about the time she smuggled a kitten on an airplane out of Russia. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The third part of the book, How to Live Well, engages the reader in a more introspected discussion of what lessons the author took away from her semester abroad. Scott encourages the audience to live every day as if it is special, in a formal yet festive way. She also harbors on the fact that intellect means far more in the French culture than physical beauty and, in order to keep one’s mind sharp, we must always seek out knowledge through the acts of reading, going to museums, exploring cultures through travel, enjoying foreign cinema, and sharing our experiences with friends and family through entertaining at home. Due to the book’s unconventional use of narrative, it is better read in chapters, rather than in one sitting. The prose is wonderfully written, if at times giving away the fact that this is the author’s first major work. Most importantly, throughout the entire manuscript, Lessons from Madame Chic: The Top 20 Things I Learned While Living in Paris urges us to Live Passionately – a relevant advice across personal and geographical borders...

READING: Approach life at home the Madame Chic way: a beautiful, illustrated toolbox of tips and ideas for organizing, entertaining, and savoring a stylish life. When she arrived at Madame Chic’s Parisian apartment as a foreign exchange student, Jennifer Scott was a casual California girl who thought sweatpants were appropriate street attire. Madame Chic took Jennifer under her wing and tutored her in the secrets of how the French elevate the little things in life to the art of living. Years later, Jennifer was back in California with a husband, two young daughters, a dog, and her first home. Every day she confronted mundane duties like folding laundry and unloading the dishwasher, and she began to think about Madame Chic’s home—how the breakfast table was set beautifully the night before, the music that always played in the background, the calm of Madame and Monsieur Chic’s ritual cocktail hour together. Jennifer wanted that life. She decided to see what would happen if she didn’t perform her chores impatiently or mindlessly, if, instead, she could live like Madame Chic. At Home with Madame Chic reveals the secrets to having a happy, fulfilling, and passionate life at home. Jennifer explains the morning send-off need not be chaotic, it’s possible to look stylish with minimal time and effort, a little forethought makes it possible to serve a home-cooked dinner every night, and details like music and scented candles can set the tone for the whole family’s evening. Organized by the pleasures that can be found throughout the day, this charming, helpful book is full of ideas, playlists, recipes, beauty routines, and advice that can turn an irritating day into an enjoyable experience.

Pages
ISBN 9789401902120
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Matthew Dennison schreef De twaalf Caesars in navolging van de beroemde Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, die in het begin van de tweede eeuw de levens van `twaalf keizers beschreef: van Julius Caesar tot en met Domitianus, oftewel van 100 voor tot 96 na Christus. Zijn smakelijke anekdotes en pikante details maakten het boek in de middeleeuwen bijzonder populair. Dennison doet het nog eens dunnetjes over en verrijkt zijn hommage aan Suetonius beroemde portretten - in het Nederlands telkens verschenen onder de titel Keizers van Rome - met andere bronnen uit die tijd en inzichten uit het heden.

Pages
ISBN 9789025450250
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Als vijftienjarige raakte Cat Marnell verslaafd aan de ADHD-medicijnen die haar vader, een psychiater, haar voorschreef. Eenmaal naar een prestigieuze kostschool verbannen, ontdekte ze onder andere Xanax, cocaïne en xtc. Haar twintiger jaren beleefde ze in een oneindige, slapeloze roes van feesten en pillen ’s nachts, en een veeleisende baan in de wereld van de modebladen overdag. Totdat het echt niet meer ging. Maar dit is geen memoir van goddelijke interventie, kliniekopname of verlossing. Eerder van de zoektocht naar een wankel evenwicht waarin de schoonheid van de roes wel degelijk een rol kan blijven spelen. Cat Marnell is een echt New Yorks enfant terrible en een formidabele schrijver die iets wezenlijks te zeggen heeft over haar op kicks beluste generatie, over de duistere kanten van de mode-industrie en over de huidige tijd.

READING: Tilar Mazzeo gaat terug in de tijd en graaft diep in het leven van Coco Chanel, de briljante, controversiële en keiharde zakenvrouw die aan de wieg stond van het parfum. Ze neemt de lezer mee van de bloemenvelden waar de oorsprong van de geur ligt naar de laboratoria en directiekamers waar geur en seks voor altijd met elkaar verbonden werden. En ze reist naar het hart van het Chanel-imperium: de winkel aan 31 Rue Cambon in Parijs, waar vijfenzestig jaar geleden de Amerikaanse soldaten massaal het magische elixer kochten om iets van de luxe en romantiek van Parijs mee terug te nemen naar hun geliefden thuis. Het geheim van Chanel No 5 is een tot de verbeelding sprekende geschiedenis, een heerlijk verhaal over kunst, sterk ondernemerschap, sensualiteit en verlangen.

In Vaarwel, dingen verkent Fumio Sasaki de filosofie achter het minimalisme en geeft hij een aantal eenvoudige regels die je kunnen helpen een simpeler, gelukkiger en waardevoller leven te leiden. Hij vertelt hoe een minimalistische levensstijl niet alleen je leefruimte en gedachtewereld vergroot, maar uiteindelijk je leven verrijkt.

READING: Keeping Blessing Hill is the story of how two very flawed people built a welcoming home out of a dilapidated barn, turned a wildly overgrown hill into a garden, and lived out a commitment to honor Christ in every aspect of their lives by opening their hearts to whatever God wanted to do. It turned out what God had in mind was “keeping”: keeping a house and garden, keeping an open door, keeping a strong marriage, and keeping devotion to those things that are eternal. Meditations about joy and glory and wonder mingle with practical household tips, recipes, and amusing stories about a family that knows how to keep life jolly as readers gain a fresh attentiveness to and perspective on God, nature, and relationships.
