The Hotel Cure

French Secret #56:
French Women believe in "The Hotel Cure."
This means that when your love life is getting a bit ho-hum, it's time for you and your partner to go somewhere new and rekindle the romance.  Just pack your bags.
Your rendezvous doesn't have to be expensive or complicated.  Even a weekend overnight in a hotel that's within driving distance can re-ignite the passion.
Think of it like this--a hotel room is a clean slate, far removed from the responsibilities of day-to-day life.  Bring a bottle of champagne and two crystal flutes from home and add some fresh flowers.
Trés romantique.
Oh, and pretty lingerie, bien sur.
Do you ever go away on a little trip to rekindle the flames?  Do you have any special tips on how to make the most of quick getaway?  I'd love to hear about it!

  1. My darling and I are doing this exact thing very soon, at a five star hotel literally down the road. And I can't wait! I always pack my best Paris outfit (imagining we will be staying in Paris rather than my home city) and a small bottle of Chanel No. 5.

    1. Bonjour, Fiona--What a lovely idea! Trés romantique! I love the idea that the hotel is just down the road, but that you pretend you're in Paris. I do believe that the best aphrodisiac is our own imagination! Enjoy your "Hotel Cure!" xo Jamie P.S. Thank you so much for commenting on the blog!
