Only in France can you find a picture of a dog painted on the sidewalk with an arrow pointing to the curb they should relieve themselves. Most of the time dogs do it in the middle of the sidewalk and then some poor soul comes along and steps in it.

Brigitte Bardot was beautiful back in the day. I wonder what her secret to staying thin was?
Well the Paris 75016 secret (that I'm about to share with you for free and cost 95 euros to obtain), as prescribed to moi and a few of my princess mommy friends, by our ultra hip nutritionist is quite simple. And it works - royally.
I originally used it eight months after Small Fry's birth as did a few other princesses I know. The baby fat melted away within three weeks. We were fitting into our J Brand jeans and loving our bodies (and derrières) again!
So if the diet works for getting rid of baby fat, it should work for getting rid of 2008 holiday season party fat!
THE PARISIAN PRINCESS POST HOLIDAY DIET PLAN
-Cereal with soya milk OR
-2 slices of whole grain cereal bread toast
-1/2 ounce of butter
-2 ounces of goat cheese
(optional: 1 slice of ham + 1 egg) twice/week
-7 ounces of meat protein (beef, lamb, duck, veal, goose) OR
-1 fish or sea food dish
-1 small bowl of veggies
-1 small bowl of carbs: rice/pasta/lentils/potatoes
-1 goat or soya yogurt (I add wheat germ to mine for a vitamin boost)
If you wish to include a starter:
-1 small bowl of crudites OR
-bowl of vegetable soup (excluding potatoes)
-2 small 70% dark chocolate squares
-Same menu as lunch (exclude the carbs and meat)
-bowl of vegetable soup
-1 Goat or Soya yogurt
Admit it, don't we all have a bit of princess in us? Who doesn't want to look royally fabulous like Brigitte Bardot and the hot Parisiennes walking the city streets? It's actually the women that make Paris so beautiful, not the landmarks.
