Hostess Gifts and a Guest Post
My friend Tish from A Femme d’un Certain Age has asked me to do a guest post about hostess gifts and of course I’ve gladly accepted. Homemade breakfast granola is just a sneak preview of one of the ideas I’ve come up with.
If you love the French life and their joie d’vie as much as I do and want to dress and act more like those chic French ladies, then I’m certain you're already familiar with Tish’s fabulously fashionable blog. But just in case, allow me to introduce her. You can come back later and tell me merci beaucoup.
All of her career, on both sides of the Atlantic, Tish Jett has been a life and style writer. She moved to France for a job and stayed for love. Pretty romantic, oui? I for one am so glad she did. Her blog, A Femme d’un Certain Age, has let me in on all of those little secrets of the French woman I’ve always wanted to know so I can be stylish and chic. Dedicated to women 40ish to whatever, every detail is chosen for us to wear, to amuse, to use……and always with a French twist. So what if the last time we saw 40 was on a speedometer? With Tish you will embark on a life-enhancing cultural exchange with the masters of looking fabulous at every age: Les Femmes Francaises. And just in case you happen to be planning a trip to Paris, she just featured fabulous suggestions on April in Paris and the perfect things to wear.
So grab a spicy cheese straw to nibble on and join me at A Femme d’unCertain Age for some ideas for hostess gifts so you don’t go to a dinner party empty-handed. See you there - à bientôt.
