Hi! I'm Patricia. I'm an American expat who likes to write and film about my embarrassing cultural mishaps, finding my way around a French beauty counter, and day-to-day life as a Madame.
A real look at the life of an expat. A blog that presents the ups and downs of uprooting your life to France. The blog celebrates France, discusses the hardships in France, and hopefully helps a few people along the way learn about France and living here. Always keeping it real.
Faking it in France is all about my experience as a British expat living in the beautiful city of Lyon. I share my ups and downs, give advice to fellow expats on different aspects of living in France, and share what to see in and around the Lyon area!
I found my way from Miami, Florida to Lyon, France in September 2011 newly married to my French husband. This blog is dedicated to my family for always standing by all my decisions.

I come from Hawaii. I'm living in France with my boyfriend where I make up the what the locals say when I don't understand them, which is often.
