Bonjour & Welcome Mon Amie!
The first thing you should know about me?
I am an admitted hedonist, an incurable romantic & an insatiable curator of experiences. If it’s after 9am, I am most certainly wearing my Chantelle panties. If it’s after 5pm, I am most assuredly sipping on a bottle of Veuve. Or whatever my fabulous dinner guest has brought over, to share.
I’m also a Francophile. Before my first trip to Paris, I lived like most American woman — quietly terrified of not having enough money, of not being skinny enough, of not being good enough for love, beauty & over-the-top passion.
After spending time in the City of Light, I embraced an entirely new approach to life — a life of joie de vivre, where value was placed on everyday luxuries, like friends, food, music, style & beauty … and slowing down long enough to taste your Bordeaux.
I returned home from Paris a changed woman — as so many women do!
I no longer wanted to ‘work harder’ or ‘uplevel my goals’.
I realized that ‘playing bigger’ meant slowing down to a Parisian pace — and learning to appreciate the beauty my life already held, in abundance.
I am a certified Master Coach, an internationally-trained sommelier, and a joie de vivre instigator for women of every age. I have a very simple credo: French Kiss Life. Cherish The World. And The Rest Will Follow.
If you’d like to depart on a thrilling high note, you may leave now. Au revoir! But if you’re curious about who I was — and how I lived — before I learned to French Kiss Life, read on …
Imagine, if you will, a little girl in a Bible Belt town, sitting in the back row of church, daydreaming about all things sinful and worldly — like Vogue magazine covers, rosy pink lipstick, and picnics beneath the Eiffel Tower. That was my life.
Picture a much-too-young bride, dreaming of storybook adventures but feeling increasingly trapped and finally, divorcing at age 26 with a beautiful 3-year old daughter in tow. That was my life, too.
Now, envision a savvy, passionate woman with a life of adventure, a chic career of her own creation and a self-made society of fabulous people. She writes love letters to her coffee, collects fine wines like exotic jewels, leads extraordinary ladies on self-discovery voyages around the world, and has learned that the most beautiful woman in the room isn’t the youngest or skinniest — but the happiest.
That’s my life, now.
How’s that for a happily ever after?
Take it from a woman who knows:
You don’t have to just dream about a life of style, beauty, and elegant simplicity. It’s not as far-fetched as you think. Claim your passport, grab your lipstick and let’s go!
Here’s to life, love, and limitless French kisses!
