My name is Anne. I am French and live in Paris.
I started my blog as a birthday present to myself in August 2010. Freshly graduated at the time, I was looking for a job in marketing and missed working on creative projects. I felt the need to share my gorgeous finds and when flipping through French Elle and Vogue Paris, I always noticed fabulous exhibitions and events I couldn’t attend because they were happening far away. Because of that I wanted readers to experience what I was living in Paris and elsewhere through my blog as best as possible.
In October 2010 I found my first job that made me move to New York City the following month. My blog then became French-American with posts on my new city and my travels back to France. My 2-year contract came to an end and since I was missing Europe, I took up a new job in Paris. I am now back to enjoying the great style, food and arts of the City of Lights and love to share this passion with readers.
