Rated 5 out of 5 by from COLIN COWIE HAS DONE IT AGAIN! “COLIN COWIE CHIC”, is an essential tool for living well. Mr. Cowie’s impeccable style targets all levels of fine living: from the entertainer, to the host, the traveler, and more. Living well is an art, which is detail-oriented and Colin teaches you how to refine your life, whether it be setting a table, generosity or eco-conscious living. There is amazing social responsibility and life lessons to be learnt as well, which I was surprised to see a CHIC-living book. What I took away from it all is; “You don’t have to be a millionare to live like one!” I keep a few copies on hand, for that last minute present. It makes a “perfect gift on the run”, whether for your mother, brother, friend or colleagues. There is definitely something in this book for every reader. Keep up the great! You are a positive inspiration for living a beautiful, organized, fabulous life. Tony Koukos
