I think it's an extreme take on 'Fake it till you make it' principle. While I think anyone would be better taking it with a grain of salt (we don't want to experience first-hand the Stanislavsky system unfortunate side effects, do we?), still it's a worthwhile read and an entertaining system.

I find all of Fiona's books so lovely to read and this is no exception. When opening one of her books I always feel as if I am sipping a cup of tea and engaging in a lovely conversation that leaves me inspired.

Beautifully written, practical and full of relatable lifestyle hacks. I gifted myself this book on my birthday, thought of reading it a day at a time, but then went ahead and gobbled it all up. Will surely be revisiting it. Definitely worth a read, this one is for keeps.

I found this book extremely pleasant to read. Both practical and soothing. Fiona's voice comes through as a lovely person, and I spent several evenings reading a bit at a time, always with anticipation, for she has an anxiety-reducing element to her style. Someone wrote like having a cup of tea with a friend.

Many of the practical ideas we've probably heard somewhere before, but let's face it, we can all be reminded how to improve on the mundane, and elevate tasks to make life more enjoyable. I

This was a very fun book that came up as a suggestion when looking for Audrey Hepburn books. Audrey Hepburn is referenced several times in the book. She gives a lot of suggestions on how to live life like a Parisian. I'm definitely trying to follow her suggestions on eating as I've been working on losing weight and these ideas will spruce up my lunch and dinner. I also like the suggestions about replacing soda with sparkling water...a bad habit I need to break. Her makeup suggestions for me was ...more

This is the second book that I read by Fiona Ferris and I am looking forward to reading the next ones.
I just love Fiona's voice, so fresh, honest and inspiring.
She is not one of those super young, rich, fashionable bloggers who wear expensive brands for free; she is a lovely lady making the best of her life and the people around her who shares her useful tips with her readers.
I found her books highly enjoyable and I highly recommend them. So if you are looking for a way to enhance your life i

A very nice and comprehensive collection of every possible kind of bad 'good advice', including things like 'Make your life into a movie' and 'Live your life pretending that you are not where you actually are, but in the streets of Paris' (and I'm pretty sure that, as she writes this, the author stresses the last syllable and fails to pronounce the final /s/). A guide to creating an incredibly fake life, in other words. And a really scary read, I have to say.

One of the worst books on graceful living French style I have ever read. The author has not even been to France, nor does she know the language. Most of her knowledge comes from other self help books, most of them I have previously read. Some I liked a lot, others less, but none gave me so little pleasure as this book. Not recommended.

I loved her. She's so sweet. Very practical too.

A light fluffy read. Nothing groundbreaking but inspired me to make a few changes to my everyday life.

Some of the advice is good (but things I've heard before). Much of it leaves me feeling like the author may be delusional

Chic indeed

I really enjoyed this book, it had a lot of good ideas on living more mindfully and enjoying your life more. It is also budget friendly, in trying to deal with how to save more money and reduce debt it’s given me some ideas of alternative ways to enjoy life beyond shopping.

С удовольствием читала эту книгу. Каждый день начинался с порции вдохновения идей, может быть и очевидных, но все мы мечтаем примерно об одном и том же. В каждой сфере жизни найдется что-то схожее. Автор затрагивает каждый аспект жизни - уход за собой, гардероб, благотворительность, уборку, приготовление пищи, хобби и так далее. Мне понравились ее мысли по каждому вопросу.
