Bonjour Le Tour & All Things French

Sunday 14 July 2013
14th July, Cycling & France

I love France and all things French, I know as a Brit I should hate anything over the channel but I don't. I worked for a French company until last year and I use to love my work visits for the culture, the food and the French way of life all packed into my short visits! I have recently been on a course to brush up on my language skills to make my holidays more enjoyable in France.

My language packs and some lovely pictures from trips to France

We took our honeymoon in France after Mr S asked me to marry him in France 18 months previous. So there is no question that our love for France is part of our relationship and we hope to keep discovering more with our new little family.

Today is a big day in France and to celebrate Le Tour 2013 is riding one of the most spectacular rides of the three weeks - Mont Ventoux . I have happy memories of the area as my boyfriend asked me to marry him two days before we arrived in Carpentras near Mont Ventoux. I said yes and never looked back.

So to celebrate all things French here are some of my favourite French things in my life, I think that I may have to spread these out over a few posts.

It has to be L'Occitane En Provence for the quality and products that really do work. I don't normally write about beauty but for this post,this is a one off.

I love visiting the stores and the smell really takes you back to those times in France. My husband swears by the shaving gel and I love the shea butter hand cream for crafty hands. 

I love Fragonard scents too,  I had to visit the museum on our honeymoon in Grasse and see first hand how these beautiful scents are created. They are now available in the UK through M&S, which is great news for getting a little bit of the south of France on your doorstep and in your bathroom cabinet!

Over the coming days I'll post some of more favourite French things for cooking, baby and not to forget crafting.
