So Why Is It So Hard to Find Her?

You want to feel the connection between who you KNOW you are in your soul and the person you present to the world. You don't want to feel overwhelmed and disorganized, or jealous of those around you. You want to put yourself first for once, build healthy habits into your life, and finally be that woman who has got her life together.

If this is what you’re craving, it’s time to start cultivating the life you actually deserve.

A Chic Year is perfect for you if you want to...

Discover a unique style that reflects your character

so you can move through the world with confidence

Let go of what others expect from you

and start living a life that aligns with your true self

Develop a practice of mindfulness

so you can leave habits that don’t serve you in the past

Acquire a certain je ne sais quoi

that makes you feel elegant, poised, and chic

We all want to be THAT woman with the seemingly effortless style, irresistible signature scent, and the confidence to live life on her terms.

The first step is realizing what’s standing in your way...

Tell Us...Have Any of These Struggles Been Holding You Back From Living Life as Your Dream Self?

Are you lacking a certain spark, glow, or je ne sais quoi? And you want to know how to get the spring back into your step…

Is living passively and without purpose making you feel stagnant? But you don’t know how to ditch your old habits, be more present, and seize the day...

Do you dislike your reflection in the mirror? And you wish you had a way to cultivate self-esteem and self-love...

Are your clothes frumpy, unstylish, and not a true reflection of you? But you don’t know how to put together looks that will make you feel sophisticated and confident…

Are you constantly putting the care of others before yourself? And you know you need a self-care makeover, but have no idea where to start…

Is your cluttered, disorganized home stressing you out? But you don’t have a system for controlling the chaos...

Have you tried to solve all of these problems before? But you become overwhelmed and unmotivated by information overload and don’t end up sticking with it...

If you answered ‘YES’ to any of the above, A Chic Year could be the ticket you need for your self-care journey. When you start taking care of you, you’ll be amazed at the results.

Meet the Creator of A Chic Year:

Hi, I’m Michele…

Bachelor of Psychology (Honors), Life Coach, Award-Winning Self-Improvement Author, and Obsessed French Culture Enthusiast

For a long time, I did not live a chic life.

Trapped in a corporate job, bound by what was expected of me, and always putting myself last, I was living a life based on who I thought I ‘should’ be.

I wore clothes that didn't suit my personality, I was a people-pleaser, and I hated it. 

Maybe you can relate? 

I wanted to be someone who could live joyfully and authentically. Someone with confidence, elegance, grace, and poise. Someone with an organized and uncluttered home and a polished sense of dress perfectly matching her own style. Someone who lived with order and purpose, focusing on what mattered, and opting out of conventions and others’ expectations. Someone who took excellent care of herself and loved with kindness and compassion instead of people-pleasing. Someone who enjoyed the contentment that comes from knowing who you are and caring more about your own considered opinion than what others think. A woman who was comfortable in her skin, who had that je ne sais quoi.

Have you ever felt like this? 

I wanted to be this woman so much, but this was not how my life looked or felt at the time.

Over the Span of a Decade, I Discovered the Key to Living Life on My Own Terms (and I Want to Share It With You!)

It took me many years, much research in psychology and philosophy, and plenty of soul searching. I even wrote a thesis on personality and happiness! 

And over time I learned how to create and live a chic life that expresses who I am and what matters to me. I learned how to slough off other people’s expectations, the compulsion to fit in, the endless comparisons and relentless drive for perfection. How to let go of everything that crowded my space, my closet, my life, my heart.

When I started prioritizing self-care and exploration, fostering healthy habits, creating rituals, and embracing simplicity, I gradually became the woman I’d always imagined.

Do you want this too?

Why Not Follow the Experts in Chicness?

Nothing became clearer to me than how much corporate life, the culture of busyness, and the pressure of societal expectations were leaving me with no time or energy to focus on myself without guilt.

So I took a leaf out of the French book. After all, they’re widely renowned for being the most effortlessly chic people on the planet.

They have this philosophy that life is short and filled with joys and sorrows, so they’re less shocked when bad times come, and also more willing to enjoy the pleasures while they can. They don't feel guilty about enjoyment, whether rest or food or sex…

In general, they are more accepting of themselves, too. They're not obsessed with boundaries because they don't force themselves to be 'nice' all the time. They aren't obsessed with dieting because they enjoy food and don't make it the enemy. They don't follow trends or fashions so much as express their own sense of style. It's how I try to live my life.

And now it’s my mission to help women like you thrive. It’s time to take the plunge and start living a life that truly reflects who you are.


What if in Just a Few Short Weeks You Could Feel Yourself Becoming the Confident, Stylish, Woman You’ve Always Wanted to Be?

If who you see in the mirror doesn’t match how you feel in your soul, I hear you. And we’ve got work to do!

You’ll be guided every step of the way with weekly projects, journal prompts, and worksheets that cultivate confidence, self-discovery, and style, so you can live the life full of joy and purpose that you’ve always imagined for yourself.

There’s nothing else like it – I’ve looked! And I believe nothing will help you more in creating the chic, elegant, poised, and contented life that honors the chic woman who’s already inside you.

Don’t waste another day not being your sophisticated and authentic self. With all this value for just $99 (not to mention instant digital delivery and no shipping), you can start right now.
