Book Review: London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

In the course of my career, I’ve been very fortunate to personally connect, via social media and in person, with authors whose work I’ve admired for years. Among my very favorite and most respected is Janelle McCulloch, author of Paris: An Inspiring Tour of the City’s Creative Heart and numerous other travel, decor and lifestyle titles. Thus, I’m thrilled and honored to share with you her latest release: London Secrets. How gorgeous is that cover?

London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

As with her other books, London Secrets is a rich mix of luscious photography and thoughtful, in-depth writing based on exhaustive research into lesser known gems of this fabulous city. I’ve been traveling to London since I was a teenager, and lived in the city on two different occasions, so would say I know the city well. But this book introduced me to a fascinating array of new delights.

My favorite section (of course) covers botanical spaces, which can be found in unexpected locations throughout the metropolis.

Gardens, florists, bookstores, fabric and decor outlets, antique shops, boutique hotels and beautiful restaurants are abundantly featured. I’ve just returned from London but this book makes me want to jump right on a plane back. As a guide for planning a visit to the city, you’ll find more than you can fit in even a lengthy trip. And if traveling to London is not in your immediate schedule, this book will give you a marvelous armchair adventure. As stylish and fascinating as the city itself, this is a must-have addition to any travel library.

Hello, friends! I’m sure most of you read Sharon Santoni’s My French Country Home, a blog that has been inspiring many of us for years. It’s one thing to fantasize about an idyllic life in the French countryside but Sharon has been living it for over two decades, and in addition to her blog, has chronicled her experiences in two very popular books, My Stylish French Girlfriends and My French Country Home, Entertaining Through the Seasons.

She has recently started a new venture: a quarterly subscription entitled My Stylish French Box.

New Release: Paris in Bloom Stationery Collection

Paris in Bloom Collection by Georgianna Lane

Hello, friends! I hope that September has gotten off to a wonderful start for you. Today I’m very excited to share a project that I’ve been working on for over a year with my editors at Abrams Books – the Paris in Bloom stationery collection! It includes four brand new products that were inspired by my book: a gorgeous gratitude journal, a notecard collection in a keepsake box and two elegant blank journals. Each is imbued with rich details such as custom calligraphy, gold foil and embossing, and each will bring the spirit of Paris to your office or desk at home. They’re available in my shop or via my Amazon Author Page. (outside the US at Book Depository and Amazon UK.)
