Here at ohsococo anything French is best. So this week we shall be helping you all to add a little French into your mind, body and home. We start off the week with two of my fav books on my bookshelf at the moment. One on vintage-esque Paris and one modern day French country living. The Paris Wife is my first choice,

which tells the tale of an all consuming love affair during 1920's Paris in the Jazz era. Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley set sail to Paris where they become the golden couple caught up in a lifestyle of "hard drinking and fast living". Amazon calls it "A heartbreaking portrayal of love and torn loyalty" Its an absolute must read.

My second choice is My French Life by author and blogger Vicki Archer.

This is a biography style book telling Vicki's tale of abandoning New Zealand to move to an Olive Orchard in the Southern French Country side. She touches on all sides of French life and gives you a first hand view of the social etiquette of the French. My French life has stunning photography and is an incredibly inspirational piece of work. For more insight into French culture check out Vicki's blog where she blogs about Interior Design, Fashion, Food and all things French.

Hope this has inspired you go dust off the books or maybe order some new ones
