Let’s talk about connecting through social distance and the ‘Cup of Something Lovely’ book club.
Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy amid all the coronavirus chaos. You get me solo today as I wanted to share the first book for the ‘Cup of Something Lovely’ virtual book club.
For the first book selection, let’s come together to read one of my favourite books of 2019:
Meet Me in Monaco by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb
This delightful read was a grocery store purchase that I ate up in two-and-a-half days. I love historical fiction and chose this one for us because there are no wars, no sickness — just a solid story about a feisty French entrepreneur determined to keep her family’s perfume business alive in the 1950’s, with Grace Kelly’s wedding timeline as the foundation for how events unfold. And it’s a love story. Ah, l’amour. It ‘s the perfect chocolate macaron of a book.
Where to buy or borrow it:

If you’re working from home these days and finding it a bit weird, check out this great blog post with tips from To Vogue or Bust‘s Alex Grant. I’ve also shared some tips for staying positive while the chaos swirls.
If you have the means, I’d love it if you could contribute to the virtual food drive that I’m holding for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. They are in great need of support right now to help families who don’t have the resources to stock-pile at this difficult time. The Food Bank is not government funded and every contribution helps!
