French women allow them to live the good life. It is a life of quality rather
than quantity in terms of the clothes they buy, the food they eat, how they
spend their time and how they manage their relationships. And even as they
approach their middle years and beyond, French women continue to maintain
their looks and chic appearance. French society respects the older woman
and expects nothing less of her.
I have read all of Anne's books and have followed her at annebarone.com for years.
She offers a more thoughtful approach to living one's life to the fullest;
it doesn't matter where you happen to live or how old you are. This book
is filled with practical tips, information, and inspiration on how to remain
vital and attractive as we age.
Chic and Slim Toujours takes a somewhat different approach than the previous books and it contains perfect advice for those of us approaching or deep into that "certain age." This is thoughtful advice on the individual parts of our lives that can total up to a more satisfying and fulfilling life - a quality life. And isn't that what we all wish we had? Anne makes me feel that it isn't too late to have this kind of full life.
Many thanks to Anne Barone for not giving up on American women and for being willing to share her knowledge to help us as we journey to a better way of life.
As a fellow American, I have connected with these books more than any others that celebrate french lifestyles largely because so many of these authors are French themselves (or live in France) and don't seem to recognize that many of their suggestions to their American readers are successful for them because we're allowing for cultural differences. Anne recognizes that many among her audience are still living and working in the U.S. and if an American attempted some of these behaviors, we would give an unfavorable impression. Que horror!
One big difference I really enjoyed in Toujours was Anne's mention of specific products, treatments, and websites for more information. She creates an atmosphere of trust by sharing her personal results and those of her friends and readers with all of us- so it's an incredibly helpful guide for those questions you might be too embarrassed to ask your own circle of friends. Best of all is how good I felt after reading the book. It was inspiring and uplifting, but with such tangible, reachable goals to improve your health, style, and beauty. Truly chic outcomes.
