The power of the written word should never be underestimated. 

As a child, every birthday and Christmas I was given delectable stationery on which to write my thank you notes and I have been more than taken with it ever since. I adore letting people know how much I have appreciated their company or kind gift.

In 2009 I decided to launch French Navy, a boutique online stationery and etiquette business.

As thank you notes and etiquette are intrinsically linked, by default growing up I became the etiquette ‘go to’ girl within my group of friends. So, it made sense for etiquette advice to be offered through French Navy too. Under the pseudonym, Miss French Navy, I have been able to provide etiquette advice and also blog about all of the things that I love, including manners, style, decorum and good taste.
