The movie is a outline for life...
I was watching the movie The Devil Wears Prada the other night and I discovered striking similairities to Meryl Streep's character, Miranda Priestly and France.
Living here can be compared to Andy's character about transformation and finally self discovery.
France is Miranda Priestly, the demanding editor of Runway Magazine.
Miranda, the perfectionist she is, pushes the main character, Andy, to go in circles and keep up. Andy transforms (with a delicious new wardrobe and new attitude) and as she becomes more efficient at playing by the rules and eventually breaking them, her personal life seems to go up in smoke.
French life as frustrating as it may be, changes
you/me in a way that is an internal struggle for enlightenment.
By all means, the movie is no oracle, however fun, as it is, girly, delivers a powerful message: outsmart the devil before he outsmarts you, then walk away.
If you can.
Bonjour et Bienvenue!
Thank you for stopping by for a spell!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
