French phrase of the day: se mettre en valeur

Def: to make the most of yourself

I'm reading the lovely Almost French—left for me by the even lovelier Emily. Almost as much as hearing about someone else's memories of arriving in and adjusting to life in Paris, I love picking up a phrase or two. This one's a keeper.


  1. I loved the book - beautifully written and observed.

    I always laugh when my aussie friend arrives and announces she is going to put on her thongs!
    She means 'flip-flops'.

    I think my copy of the book is still in Paris with my french friend.

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE that book!
    The best ever!
