Happy Monday + News!

Bonjour mes amis! Sorry for the delay in posting. I've been away launching a new book, my Paris travel guide Une Romancière à Paris published this week with Les Éditions La Presse

It's the perfect book to take along on a trip to the City of Light, whether with your sweetheart or a girlfriend. It's in French at the moment but I do hope to have it translated into English soon.  (Please do tell me what you think, is this something you would enjoy?)

I've also been taking time out to think about my various internet platforms....and I've decided it was time to make some big changes to my author website, my blog and other media ( oh la la, can you say yikes!) 

It's been difficult to do as I've grown very attached to my blog here over the years....and change can be very scary but it can also be incredibly liberating. So I do hope that you will continue to follow me on my new adventures,  approve of my media platform choices and I will keep you updated on my progress.

Enjoy a wonderful week!

Living Life

"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again."

Happy weekend!!

Happy weekend mes amies! I hope you had a fantastic week. Stay tuned, I will post the winners of my summer escapes book giveaway tomorrow!

In the meantime, I'm sharing this amazing popsicle recipe from Family Fresh Cooking, it makes my mouth water simply looking at it!

Here are the details:

  • 16 ounces Cold Water
  • 1 ounce Orange Blossom Water
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • Plain Stevia Drops or your favorite natural sweetener to taste (Honey would be great too) I used one full dropper of stevia.
  • a handful of Organic Edible Flowers, rinsed and remove petals
  • Have pop molds handy and make sure you have room in your freezer. Combine water, orange blossom water and lemon juice. Sweeten to taste. Pour mixture into molds. Freeze without sticks and petals for about 1 hour. Remove from freezer and add flower petals. You can push them into the molds with the help of a long, skinny spoon or pop stick. Make sure the flowers are scattered throughout the pops. Add sticks and freeze for 2-3 hours more until solid.
