My Paris Dream – Book Review and Giveaway

My countdown to Paris feels as though it’s moving at a snail’s pace.  I seriously needed my spirits to soar.  Fortunately, my father-in-law surprised me with a copy of  – My Paris Dream: An Education in Style, Slang, and Seduction in the Great City on the Seine.

I made myself a lovely cup of tea and landed on the couch with my favorite blanket.  My husband likes to keep the house at minus arctic degrees, so a blanket is always needed in our house.


This book was just the ticket I needed.  If I can’t be in Paris in 2016, then I will jet off to Paris circa 1980’s  –  via Kate Betts.


If you have a love affair with Paris or fashion – this is a must read.  You will experience the highs and lows of Kate’s turbulent dream of self-discovery, in the city she loves dearly.  You will feel the passion in her pursuit to make it into the fashion industry.

We all have our dreams – even if Paris isn’t your dream, you will find this memoir an entertaining read.  My Paris Dream is a journey on following your heart.

I have one hardcover copy of My Paris Dream from Ms. Betts for this giveaway.  One $25.00 Amazon Gift Card will also be included for the lucky winner from moi.

UPDATE – The winner is Carol P.  Congratulations!  I have sent you an email.  Thanks to everyone!

Good Luck – Bonne chance!

Oil is something we add most often to our food. It’s also something you can probably find in every kitchen you go to. So how important it is to have the one that is healthy for your body? It’s major.


So let me tell you briefly about the ones that are healthy for our bodies and skip the ones that are not.
