              An entertaining celebration of sustainable fashion, buying well and finding your style in the twenty-first century. 'The point of this book is to explore my ideas for sartorial satisfaction, to tell the stories associated with my love of clothes and fashion, and to share the mess...age of accidental sustainability.' When Peta Mathias dug through the clothes she had stored away for twenty years in her shed, she realised it was full of valuable, beautiful items that were crying out to be worn again- 'Fashion is mysterious, irresistible and alluring . . . they are not just frocks - they are beauty, art, history, emotion, memory, identity and, above all, joy.' From this arose a new appreciation of buying well but cannily, so your clothes will not bankrupt you nor go out of fashion. Reviving her neglected wardrobe, Peta revelled in mixing fabrics, colours and patterns, considering how to make an impact and how that dull pair of shoes can be transformed into something just a little bit fabulous.

With ten topics... relevant to all women - Fashion, Food, Relationships, Music, Travel, Beauty, Work, Sex, Happiness and, of course, Men - Peta's sagacious, sexy and occasionally scurrilous book will encourage and inspire readers to reinvent, spice up, embrace and celebrate the lives they have. As well as recounting her own life lessons, Peta interviews a range of women - from psychologists to plastic surgeons, sex therapists to hairdressers, doctors to singers - and discovers what a woman needs to make her happy, independent and successful.

              Funny, passionate, outrageous and honest, this is a memoir about travel, house renovations, food, music, men and change. Peta Mathias has been making major moves in her life since leaving home to train as a nurse. Once qualified, she headed to Canada for six years, then on to liv...e in London, before spending a decade in France, setting up her own restaurant. When she returned to New Zealand, she started writing books and making television series, celebrating her twin passions of food and travel. And she continued to yoyo back to Europe and started leading culinary tours to India, Morocco, Spain and the recurring theme in her life: France. Never ready to settle down, she next decided it was time to sell up her beloved cottage in Auckland and head back over there, to buy and renovate a new home in Uzes. This is her vivacious account of that move and of the many earlier changes in her life. The book explores what she has been running away from or to, the thrills and tribulations of reinventing yourself, as well as her loves for food, music, men and many more besides.
