We are busy preparing the August edition of My Stylish French Box and we’re very excited about the gorgeous contents, this box is going to be glamorous and feel extremely luxurious….
of course I can’t tell you what we are including, because I know that our clients love the surprise of discovering their gifts when they open the box. But I can tell you why we chose Provence as the theme for this season, and what draws me to this part of France.
‘Holiday in Provence’ is the name of this box …. I lived in Provence for quite a few years before living in Normandy, and the summer months here are so evocative. The sound of the cigales or crickets singing in the trees, the perfume of the pine trees and lavender on the air, and the long summer evenings, ideal for taking time over delicious meals and a glass or two of local rosé wine.
Winding streets in small villages, shutters half closed in sleepy towns to balance the afternoon heat, and early morning sounds as the first stores open in town, these are all things that I love in the South of France.
Shopping at the markets is a very different experience in Provence to here in Normandy. The colours are brighter, the vendors louder, and the perfume of melons and peaches quite intoxicating. I love the dappled shade of a market square where stalls are set up beneath the trees; by mid morning the normally sleepy village is teeming with buyers and vendors as fruit and vegetables, flowers and clothes, hats and baskets change hands.
