Welcome back to my “MFCH Table Talks” series!

Last Saturday, I went Live on Instagram with my talented and inspirational friend, Vicki Archer – a writer, blogger, renowned influencer and Queen of Style. A reference for chic living at any age, Vicki’s readers and fans trust her judgement and rely on her to be ahead of (and keep them up to date on) all the latest trends.

Did you miss our Live? Listen to the full conversation via my podcast below!

Both Vicki and I have been blogging and writing online for many years now. She lives between London and Provence, and we often meet as she travels from one to the other. She also has a beautiful hotel in St Remy.

Whenever we can, we meet up in Paris for long (very long!) lunches or breakfasts. For me, these are truly precious occasions. It’s rare to have a friend with whom you can chat so openly. We love to talk about our families, our writing, our businesses and many other things, too.

Vicki’s first book – My French Life – was met with huge success and rapidly brought her an international audience. Her second book – French Essence – is a beautiful coffee table book that has been sold around the world. And she’s still writing more! This week she published a new e-book – Better, Not Younger.  Vicki naturally coined this mantra as she spoke to her feminine audience, encouraging and helping them to grow older gracefully, confidently and in great style.

In this episode, you’ll hear Vicki and I chat about how we’ve seen the blogging world evolve over last decade, her love of St Remy and southern France, her new-book (and the accompanying mantra) and living stylishly and confidently at any age.

Hi Sharon,

I follow you on Instagram and gave it my best shot many times today (Saturday, May 9th) to access the MFCH Table Talk with Vicki Archer, but alas, I was unsuccessful. I was so looking forward to this live talk. I would be very grateful for your help in advising me
what to do to view the video before time runs out tomorrow. Thank you so much! Happy Mother’s Day to you from the USA!

I have noticed the above comment, as mine is the same. I cannot access the podcast with Vicki Archer, and as I have followed her blog for quite some time and have her books, I was looking forward to hearing her in conversation with Sharon.

A very enjoyable podcast with Vicki Archer! It catapulted me into a different space during this period of isolation to have a visit with you both. Thank you.

A very interesting interview! I didn’t know you were a professional writer. Plus, I only recently learned that there are many places to find essay writers available. In addition to your local university or college, you can also find many freelance essayist’s online. You can request samples from writers online to determine if they are a good fit for your needs. However, before hiring a writer, you should always meet in person in order to discuss your project and write a contract outlining the specifics of the job.
