I adore Paris, and will happily tell anyone who’ll listen why they should, too. One day I was yet again waxing lyrical about my passion for the city when some friends said, “You need to turn this into a book.” And so that’s just what I did. Paris Dreaming: What the City of Light Taught Me About Love, Life & Lipstick is my love letter to Paris, one that I’ve been drafting since the age of five, when I first visited, and began obsessing over, this magical metropolis. I poured my heart and soul into every page, in an effort to convey exactly what Paris has given me over the years, and how the city can inspire all women, of all ages, to live a more beautiful life. Even if our feet are firmly planted on non-French soil, we can all live the dream of Paris in spirit.
