In the clip, which has been viewed more than 157,000 times, Isabelle talks to camera as she begins: 'These are my reverse culture shocks as an American living in France who is back in America visiting.'
She says: 'Everybody is so nice - like so so so nice. It's not that French people aren't nice, they're just not nice in the same way that Americans are with the small chitchat.
'I keep being so awkward like doing the "are you talking to me?" thing because I'm just not used to it anymore.
'It kind of takes me back when people come over - just strangers - and start talking to you but it's nice, I like it.'
Isabelle continues: 'Food wise, the food here [in the US] is very salty and very sweet. My mouth keeps puckering on a lot of things. In Europe or France at least - it just has less salt and sugar in it than the processed food here.
'Also just like very painfully bloated since I've been here.'
But Isabelle does not stop there, adding: 'I was super pleasantly surprised when I had to bring my daughter to urgent care that it was affordable.
'We have no insurance here so I paid $100 and I think it was $39 to see a doctor and then $12 for a prescription.'

Turning her attention to fashions, the mother-of-one said: 'There's such a difference in the way the kids dress here. There's so much Disney.
'They're way more mismatched and my daughter is definitely always mismatched because she dresses herself and will not let anyone choose what she is going to wear.
'We realize in France or where I am in Paris the kids kind of dress a little bit more like adults. The children's clothing looks more like adult clothing.'
Isabelle continues: 'The cars are so big. I would happily drive like a gigantic black suburban but you just can't have a big car in Paris. The parking is tiny, it's impossible.'
