About the Author
Vanessa Grall was raised a London girl but seven years ago, she packed up her life, moved to the land of her ancestors, and never looked back. Paris became her muse, her mentor, a source of nostalgia for eras she had never lived through. Thanks to the inspiration Nessy found in Paris, she became a curator to what has turned into a cult online magazine today: messynessychic.com; acknowledged, featured and followed by major media entities and iconic international brands. Nessy has an eye for the iconic, the intriguing, the off-beat and beguiling. Whether it's your first time in Paris, your second home, or you are yourself a Parisian, this book changes the rules.
