The Minimalist Lady

The Minimalist Lady

By Camille Taboulot
Welcome, productive Ladies. My name is Camille and I run the blog called The English-speaking Frenchie (link in the description). As a French book reviewer and blogger, my mission is to help women learn to balance productivity and slow living. To me, living more minimalist and elegant life are necessary steps towards that goal, and reading books and going to the museum will help. Does it all sound weird? Maybe, but is not life weird, anyway?
