There is something magical about a Parisian woman. She is strong, she is glamorous, she is unapologetically herself. While you may feel buried under your never-ending to-do list and the dishes piling up in the sink, use these tips to add a chic Parisian touch to your everyday life.
Choose Your Own Signature Lip Color & Fragrance
Smell is the strongest scent tied to memory, so French woman spritz themselves with their signature fragrance every morning. Anyone catching a whiff of your scent walking down the street will instantly be reminded of you!
Always Have Champagne in the Kitchen
You never know when a friend will pop by with good news, you’ll achieve one of your goals, or just need a glass of chilled champagne at the end of the day. True champagne enthusiasts know that real champagne is made with grapes from the Champagne region of France. That means your Cook’s is actually sparkling wine, not official champagne.
Parisian women work hard at achieving their goals, but always make time to pamper themselves. Include a weekly indulgence to your routine to maintain your sanity and remind yourself that life is about the fun as well as the stressful.
Stop Apologizing for Who You Are
Wear what you want, do what you want, and follow what makes you happy. French women don’t shy away from bold fashion statements, and neither should you! If you love sparkles, wear them as often as you like. If all black is your aesthetic, don’t take any shit from people telling you to add color to your wardrobe.
Maintain An Aura of Mystery
French women never reveal everything about themselves which leaves people coming back for more. If you’re a nervous talker or don’t mind being an open book, practice censorship. When you actually do open up to a select few, they’ll appreciate being one of the chosen ones and are much more likely not to spill the beans to anyone else.
Fill Your Home With Luxurious Things
Your home is your castle, your refuge, and your place to recharge. Home decor may be at the very bottom of your priorities list, but take a lazy Saturday afternoon to purchase some items that spark joy and add a personal touch to your space. Add flowing curtains to add romance to your living room or a beautiful marble vase to keep fresh flowers on your kitchen counter.
Now that you’ve completed your education in the French lifestyle, learn how to get things done when you’d rather do anything else!
