My neighbourhood...

The sparkling, gorgeous, artsy Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

I like Paris for…

Its daytime inspiration and nighttime lights. Its uniqueness and cosmopolitan beauty make my eyes glimmer every single day.

My secret address…

I walk around Paris and try out new spots, which I jot down on the (brilliant) Mapstr app. If I had to pick just one, I would say... the Très Particulier hotel in Montmartre.

My work look is...
Trendy but classic! A velvet suit or a pair of carrot pants with a silk blouse, high-heeled boots, a lot of gold jewelry and, of course, fragrance.

My date look...

A long dress with a side slit, heels, a long coat worn on the shoulders, a nice smoky eye and wavy hair. And let's not forget the gold jewelry and perfume!

I never go out without…

Mascara!

What's in my bag:

Lip balm, a pocket mirror, my keys, gum, a black pen, a card holder, a nude lipstick and one or two mini perfumes sprays.

Every morning I…

I clean my skin with eau micellaire and then I moisturize. I take advantage of the cream application to give my face and neck a small massage. Then, to stay in shape and get a glow on, I eat a seasoning-free raw veggie salad, one fried egg and some whole grain bread.

Every evening I…

I take my makeup off (with either eau micellaire or cleansing oil if I'm wearing heavier makeup) and cleanse my skin before applying eye contour care and a night cream (including on my neck). Once a week, I treat my skin to a detox face mask. Then I choose my outfit for the next day, all with the weather in mind. I have to because I never have any inspiration in the morning [laughs].

I drink my coffee…

An allongé, or, why not, an americano! Always unsweetened, but with a piece of chocolate. It's my daily (not so) guilty pleasure!
