Introducing myself!

Hello chic friends,
I always enjoy it when people on social media reintroduce themselves periodically (maybe I'm nosy?), so, here I am! Introducing myself to you! Hello whether you are new to me or have been following me forever 😊

My name is Fiona and I live with my husband Paul (married for 16 years, together for 21) and rescue pets in beautiful Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. I was born in this region 53 years ago and moved away for ages but then came back. I've always lived within New Zealand though.

I have my dream career - I write books and self-publish on Amazon, and from that also came publication into three other languages through traditional publishers.

Doesn't nature have the prettiest colours each season?
I truly am in awe most days when I step outside.

Nothing compares 🥰

 I've always loved reading, and always wanted to be an author.

I love pretty, girly things, being at home, creating (whether it's with words, sewing materials, or baking when I have guests), and living a simple, quiet, happy life.

My books are all on different topics but their common thread is that they are about living a fab life without spending a lot of money. Plus, setting up your mindset to assist, because everything is easier and more enjoyable then.

Please, tell me something about you! Have you been here long? I'd love to get to know you more 😊

xx Fiona

PS. You can see all my books on Amazon (Kindle, paperback, Audible audiobook) at my affiliate link here.
Or eBooks and audiobooks in my eStore for an Amazon alternative.


  1. Hi Fiona, I'm 57, live in the UK and was interested in French style. I discovered your blog at least 10 years ago - before you wrote your first books. I also follow others in the French Chic genre, who you likely know about. Thanks to you all, I have definately embraced my feminine side and try to live a more refined and elegant lifestyle, that is very frugal and minimalist -I don't need much stuff. Chic and elegance is a style choice. When you go to buy anything, or do or say anything, ask yourself, is it chic and elegant? Thank you.

    1. Lovely to meet you! Thank you for your comment. You definitely have been around awhile :) I love that shopping question, it always works doesn't it!

  2. Hi Fiona, nice to meet you ☺️ I'm 33 years old and I live in India. I'm a new follower of yours. I loved few of your books, they are so inspiring . Your books brought me here in this blog and I'm so glad about it. ☺️


Merci for your comment. Wishing you a chic day!
