French Women are Complex.

French Secret #43
While it's true, French Women do not always smile and laugh as freely as we do--they do express their feelings.
Just look at the beautiful French actress Marion Cotillard.
Even while laughing, she remains mysterious and very intriguing.
So yes, French Women do express their emotions.  I've seen my French girlfriends get passionate during a heated discussion on cinema and politics and even whether they'll order a créme caramel or a apple tartin for dessert.  And, I've also seen French Women cry over a lost love.
But these moments are special, because the French Woman doesn't give all her secrets away.  She will smile slightly.  She will look a bit wistful as she stares into some unknown distant future.
Or she might simply look at you with only her eyes as if she is withholding some delicious tidbit of information that she's simply not in the mood to reveal, just yet.
Do you also remain just a little bit mysterious?  Intriguing?
I'd love to hear from you!  Merci beaucoup, mes amis!

  1. Absolutely right ! We are on the whole much more restrained than most nations and ... it makes me proud ! Super blog, au fait !x

    1. Merci beaucoup for your sweet comment. I'm especially pleased that a "real French girl" follows my blog! xo

  2. YES! Love it... :) Mysterious is my middle name...(I am a Scorpio, after all)... :)) Marion is so nuanced, isn't she? Brilliant.
    How are you, dearest Jamie? I hope your November is beautifully fun and creative....
    Love to you...

  3. Bonjour, Irina--I'm Aquarius, and I always follow Susan Miller's horoscope for both Aquarius and Scorpio (my rising sign) because it seems to apply to me more. J'adore Scorpios--so many of my friends are late October/November babies. So mysterious and intriguing! Enjoy your beautiful birthday month, dear Irina! Love, Jamie

  4. Ahhh...I knew there was some Scorpio spark there! ;))) Scorpio rising....I have a Pisces rising, but my moon is in Libra, which is what adds such a love for beauty and romance, I think...I will have to check out Susan Miller's horoscope, merci! And I have many Aquarians in my life too! :)
    Thank you for your kind wishes, chere Jamie!!
    Love to you,
    - Irina
