Why French Women Feel Young at 50 (Paperback)
In this witty and uplifting book Parisian blogger Mylène Desclaux speaks tenderly and honestly about turning 50 and what it means for herself and for the other women in her entourage. Mylène assures us that we are still 'young women' in our fifties - but with more opportunities.
'By the time we're fifty, we've generally done all the important things - career, family. Now we can re-center and discover a new energy within ourselves. It's our time to blossom - to reprogram gently. To revitalize. We realize that we are the mistresses of our own lives... The desire to do battle disappears. We feel calm. And we know we're going to have time to make the most of it.'
With acerbic French humor she distills the essence of getting the most out of your middle age and gives advice on everything from: Relationships, Sex, Fashion, Dating, Skincare, Friendships, Kids and Beauty.
In Why French Women Feel Young at 50 you will learn how to take pleasure from the simple things in life and how to make the most of your fifties, the Parisian way.
