Parisian Chic by Ines de le Fressange. A Paris restaurant, shop, and hotel directory, along with style tips. French Women Don’t Get Fat by Mirielle Guiliano which has now become a Francophile classic. Lessons from Madame Chic by Jennifer L. Scott.

A tongue and cheek look at french women.

The Matcha Latte Discovery

Have you heard of Matcha? It’s a green tea from China. The benefits of this tea are numerous: FULL of antioxidants, boosts metabolism, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar, enhances mood…the list goes on. Now I’ve tried matcha tea, but could never get past the bitterness, even with sweetener. However,  I have discovered the Matcha Latte and it’s delicious. A creamy tea with a hint of sweetness. It’s now become my early afternoon daily drink. Try it!
