Madame Chic in Italy & Other Lovely Things


I've had a terrible cold this past week and am slowly recovering... so there will be no video this week as I can barely speak!

But I do have a few exciting things I wanted to share with you:

♥ Lessons from Madame Chic (Le lezioni di Madame Chic) will be coming out in Italy in May of this year and this will be the cover. I love how dramatic, mysterious and oh so Italian it is. It will be issued by acclaimed publishing house, Piemme.

♥ Last week's post and video, Reader Questions Answered, got a great response. Thanks everyone! I look forward to continuing that series.

♥ I've been shooting a video on regrowing my orchids over the past few weeks, which I think you'll enjoy.

♥ Speaking of house plants, I am taking an interest in African Violets now too. These are fickle creatures that require a precise kind of care but are beautiful to keep in the home as well.

♥ I've been on a massive organization mission in my home that was inspired by the film, Amélie. I'll get more into specifics later... sorry to be so mysterious!

♥ We rarely talk about television but I have (of course) been loving Downton Abbey. Mr. Connoisseur has gotten into it this season too! We've also been watching Elementary on CBS. I love the new modern take on Sherlock/ Watson with Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. The excellent BBC Sherlock will be coming soon as well. I am such a big Sherlock Holmes fan I can't get enough of either series.

♥ This week I will be attending the world premiere of OZ The Great and Powerful. Hopefully I will feel better by then! I plan on shooting a video to show you what I'll be wearing and discussing how the event went the next day.



I hope you all have a wonderful week and that you are staying healthy...

See you soon!

What a pretty cover!

I am on the last two chapters of your book and I love it! Every bit of advice just makes so much sense. I've already cleaned out my closet, and you're right, so much easier to dress when your options are up front and center and everything is matching! It's been great.

Hope you feel better soon!

Dripping in elegance and class. Congratulations. I discovered your book quite by accident on Amazon and ordered it. I was able to visit Paris through your book. Thank you. Every once in awhile an author writes a book I read that I can't put down....and hate for the book to end. Your book is one of these books. You truly have a gift to write. Thank you again. Feel better.

Hope you are on the mend soon!

The book cover is gorgeous.

Hubs got into Downton Abbey this season too. Sunday's episode was great! I was actually rooting for Thomas and I normally can't stand him!

The cover is so pretty. If I was in Italy, I'd buy it even though I don't speak or read Italian. Congrats again. And yes, I love Downton Abbey.
