To be Parisian is to have a certain attitude and outlook on life.

In Practicing Parisienne, British journalist and blogger Marissa Cox decodes this seemingly nebulous je ne sais quoi, explaining what she has learned since moving to France eight years ago, and how and why the reader can and should adopt a more Parisian lifestyle. She reveals how she learnt to live her best life in this iconic city, what it means to be Parisian and in turn inspire you to make positive changes in your own lives, however big or small.

Covering everything from style and fashion, beauty and wellbeing, interiors and home life, dining out and cafe life, as well as love and friendship, each section also contains interviews with well-known Parisians who inspire us to live better.
