tout sweet - Poitou-Charentes

poitou charentes  tout sweet   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceI knew I was going to like this blog.  How could anyone not like a blog a that starts with the words… “OH DEAR GOD, what have I done?”

tout sweet is the blog of Karen Wheeler.

Karen describes herself as … “the former Fashion Editor of a well-known British newspaper – now a freelance fashion and beauty writer, living in a small and unfashionable French village in the Poitou-Charente.”

As well as the opening sentence, I also got the feeling that I was going to enjoy tout sweet when I read articles such as… serial killer, how to keep a minx and bell bottoms!

More information
Karen has written a book which has had rave reviews (check out the reviews on Amazon – which are by real people like you and me, rather than professional reviewers).

According to the “about page”, Karen admits to listening to Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond while driving and believes that she understands the offside rule – personally I don’t believe a word of it!

No one under the age of 148 would admit to listening to Neil Diamond (whilst driving or not) and, as for a girl understanding the offside rule……

That apart, tout sweet is a nice mixture of flying round the world doing writer stuff, eating, shopping and a fair bit about dogs.

This is the sort of blog you really do need to read from the start to the end. Preferably with a glass of wine nearby, and a copy of Tout Sweet to refer to, as well!

I suggest that you start with Au Revoir Kensington and continue from there!

All the best
