Tout Sweet: Hanging Up My High Heels for a New Life in France

(August 1, 2011)

In her mid-thirties, fashion editor Karen has it all: a handsome boyfriend, a fab flat in west London, and an array of gorgeus shoes. But when her boyfriend, Eric, leaves she makes an unexpected decision: to hang up her Manolos and wave good-bye to her glamorous city lifestyle to go it alone in a run-down house in rural Poitou-Charentes, central western France.

Tout Sweet is the perfect read for anyone who dreams of chucking away their BlackBerry in favor of real blackberrying and downshifting to a romantic, alluring locale where new friendships–and new loves–are just some of the treasures to be found amongst life's simple pleasures.


Karen Wheeler is a British fashion and beauty journalist. She moved to France and began a blog about her experiences at www.toutsweet.net, written under the pseudonym of Mimi Pompom. Tout Sweet, a memoir, is her first book and is subtitled Hanging Up My High Heels for a New Life in Rural France. (Interview by Angela Smith)

This sounds super cute!

I actually have an ex-coworker who is going on a Gap Year with her husband. They'll be traveling all over Europe, mostly in France, for an entire year! They sold their house and quit their jobs. I'm in awe of their choice of "retirement" and can't wait to follow along on their journey via her blog.
