I was so excited to see the author's of How to Be Parisian were coming out with a new book this year. How to Be Parisian is one of my favorite gift books to give. I love gifting it to friends for their birthday. Especially the friends that love Paris as much as I do. Older, But Better, But Older was just as good as How to Be A Parisian. I can't wait to start gifting this book to friends!

Older, But Better, But Older is their take on being 40 or older now. I can completely relate to all the things

We recieved this book from a Goodreads giveaway, and it was very good. As we get older, our minds and bodies change into a more complex state of being. We are all human creatures, and this author does a good job to relate this changing time in life, according to her own humorous outlook. The book is both fun and interesting, because some of the funny moments relate to us all. This book is a great read that explains and questions, the drama of aging, combined with a wit and wisdom theme. Well ...more

Older, but better is a follow on from the book “How to be Parisian” and is a laugh out loud bible on being 40, approaching 40 or upwards. I could relate to a lot of the antidotes in this book. Relating to the words I wasn’t sure of the photos used?

Caroline De Margret and Sophie Mas are back to humour us as they address, beauty, love, seduction, lifestyle, family, work, and living alone.
This book captures everyday life and tells you things that most avoid.

When you wake up feeling great, and

I read this book before my birthday and it made me extremely introspective. Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mas find a playful, yet heartfelt way to make all the trials and tribulations of aging a little less daunting. I think women of all ages can relate to or has thought about the topics discussed in this book like moving on after a breakup, finding your first wrinkle, and when to have children to name a few. This mixed media book filled with essay, Pinterest worthy photographs and quotes was a ...more

This is a fast read (I read it in one sitting) with interesting essays, pictures, and little 'tidbits of wisdom'. I found myself nodding in recognition at many of the statements, chuckling at others.
