Jamie Cat Callan talks about her book Parisian Charm School: French Secrets for Cultivating That Certain je ne sais quci
French charm has nothing to do with how much money you have, or how pretty you are, or popular you are, or well connected, or how many cute outfits you happen to own. It does have everything to do with making the most of what was given to you at birth, and even more important, what you do with life’s challenges. Now is the time to heal with #metoo and “times up now”.
We talk about
- Times up now
- How to be alive and present and vulnerable to the world around you
- The art of flirting
- How reading and dance feeds the soul
- Characteristics of a confident woman
- How a signature color enhances your vibe
- Flirting for the shy at heart
- Why men love a woman in uniform
In an age where potential relationships are pursued with the swipe of a finger, conversations consist of emoji-filled texts, and dinner and a movie have been replaced by “Netflix and chill,” the notion of “charm” seems like a relic of a bygone era.
Yet, if we reintroduce charm into our lives – in the way we consume, in the way we socialize, and in the way we approach relationships – we can become more mindful of an element of beauty and mystery that we were previously blind to and which, in turn, makes us more alluring ourselves.
As women embrace the movements of #metoo and “times up now”, it is important to learn the secrets of cultivating charm as a method of communication.
