3. Astrological sign
I’m a Scorpio. Scorpios are known by their calm and cool behavior and this is absolutely me! I am also a bit secretive and ponder data to create a realistic plan.
Confidence and happiness! I don’t take it too seriously, otherwise Fashion becomes pretentious and that’s a bit boring. Let’s keep it fun and playful!
Maybe a fashion faux-pas! A pair of shoes that had too much colors on it…
Day: large shirt with skinny jeans because whatever your shoes, it will always be cool and chic.
Night: the black dress with a heavy necklace that will make all the difference.
Cool and chic. This touch of effortless elegance that travels through the ages.
@ManRepeller for her crazy sense of style
@Lefooding, a French App that shows gorgeous meals from restaurants all over the world
And the French interior designer @Maisonsarahlavoine as she captures everything I dream of for my future home!
Spring. I love Paris in the Spring time, even if it’s a bit of a cliché (and the title of a song!)
Going to church, then have a brunch with friends at Café Charlot, then spend time in the park if it’s sunny weather and have dinner at home with my best friend.
It would be anywhere with my loved one.
Chocolate!!! Dark & strong black chocolate from Sao Tomé or the good old one Kinder bar!
French red wine, I must confess. I have a soft spot for Burgundy wines, like the fleshy and fruity Mercurey.
1. A crazy thing: do a parachute jump
