Art de Vivre literally means the art of living. In this page, you can read articles about French lifestyle, clichés, and the thoughts of a French woman plunged in the Australian culture.

 

IS THE FRENCH WOMAN FEMINIST?

 

The 8th of March was International Woman’s Day and this year I must tell you that I was in two minds about the idea of this day. Not that I am not for valuing women and being reminded that women are still victims of inequalities in our “modern” societies but rather because I am sad to notice that we need a day each year to remember that as women we are a part of this world. Shouldn’t we extend this day to the other 364 days of the year?

PARIS MON AMOUR

 

Article followed by the article in French.

 

Ah Paris, seeing Paris again always makes me feel good, city that I’ve been desperately in love with for years. However it’s in Marseille where I grew up, second largest city in France in the South, capital of soccer, in eternal “foot-ballistic” competition with Paris, a strong rivalry that I have to admit sometimes becomes ridiculous. Parisians always envy our sun that they come to borrow in summer, grumbling about our occasional casualness and a bit about the “show-off” attitude.

A DATE? DO YOU KNOW THAT FRENCH DON'T DATE?

 

How are relationships in Melbourne made between men and women?

When I came to Australia I was single, ready to explore the Australian world of singles and let me be very honest with you to enjoy this period of my life. So I used this time of my life as a period of research and investigation to understand the complexity of a relationship. However, my life is much more simple now. I found my perfect Man and as a French woman, I totally needed to have a man with a European background to simplify my life. Let me tell you that my single life in Australia on my arrival was far from being simple yet it was definitely funny sometimes. Now, I listen the stories of my French single friends and I was quite relieved to hear that I was not the only one to be intrigued by a relationship between a man and a woman in Australia.

ELEGANCE OF THE HEART

 

“Without elegance of the heart, there is no elegance.” Yves Saint-Laurent

A recent event in my life made me think about a topic dear to my heart that I like to call the “elegance of the heart” and more precisely between women. Quickly, I sadly noticed that some women have the bad habit of judging each other, gossiping, telling lies, always wanting to be in competition with other women. Let me tell you something, IT IS JUST SO INELEGANT, a perfect way to “unlady” yourself.

BON APPETIT WITH GABRIEL GATE 

 

For the second article "Bon appétit with Gabriel Gaté", find a recipe from the Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur region called Bouillabaisse that you can find in the book Délicieux, the recipes of France by Gabriel Gaté. When well made, it is one of Gabriel Gaté's favourite French dishes.
