The Price of Illusion: Joan Juliet Buck

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Joan Juliet Buck’s new memoir called The Price of Illusion. To me, Joan has always been an adventurer in life. The first time I heard her name, she was the editor in chief of Paris Vogue and it just stuck with me: Joan Juliet Buck. An American who lived in Paris, London, New York and made a name for herself in more ways than one. Her book took me through a whirlwind of memories and on a trip inside the mind and emotions of a woman I identify with a lot. Independent, fragile, modern, artistic, sentimental… And most of all, authentic.

French Guru / Martine De Richville

Massage as a way to stay slim is Martine De Richville’s area of expertise. If that weren’t enough to convince you to book regular treatments with her, her practice, which involves using her hands as the only tool, also works to release toxins, reduce cellulite, and increase metabolism. Her unique technique was developed as a result of studying psychology and then Chinese medicine, and aims to heal the body and the mind harmoniously. It’s safe to say Martine knows a lot about what constitutes a healthy body inside and out.

For the fourth installment of our French Guru series, Martine clues us in on maintaining muscle health, the benefits of massage (beyond general enjoyment) and overall wellness. And bonus! Is total justification for booking that massage you’ve been thinking about.
