|I've just found the most luxurious, wonderful French soaps, I could just sing! In fact, I did do that this morning while scrubbing up. I'm pretty sure my neighbors as far as across the river could probably hear my crooning. Hope they enjoyed my modern rendition of Patsy Cline's Crazy! oxox, Chelle|

|There’s a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that Frenchwomen seem to have — a sexy, confident energy that exudes from them like sunbeams flashing on the waters of the French Riviera. It’s certainly something to be envied, but it’s not nearly as out of your grasp as you might think. In fact, with just a few simple actions, purchases and/or mindsets, you too can feel as if you hail from Europe’s sexiest little country!

|So as you all know, I throw an Oscar party every year. And though I had planned on a big bash yet again this year, it seemed almost everyone was out of town! I still had a get-together, but since my guest list was pretty small, I opted to make dinner instead of the usual all-out soiree. I found this amazing beet risotto recipe and knew instantly it would be perfect for the occasion: the intense red color is so reminiscent of the red carpet! And the fresh lemon zest adds the perfect golden accent, just like the coveted golden statues of the evening! Even though the awards are over, I still urge you to try this recipe. It is truly outstanding and worth a celebration of its own! oxox, Chelle|

|I am so excited to reveal this absolutely unique and beautiful French script ribbon we'll be offering at the French Charmed boutique this spring. In all honesty, I was perfectly speechless when I found it and just knew I had to have it on my site for all of you. Can you imagine how gorgeous this spectacular detail will be wrapped around presents? And I also think it would be so pretty tied into a bow and used as a napkin holder during your next dinner soiree. Stay tuned, as this breathtaking ribbon is about to hit center stage! oxox, Chelle|
