My name is Margaux, I’m 20 and I’m a student from Bordeaux, France.
After a lot of hesitations I’m finally starting my blog!
Bloggers and youtubers have been inspiring me for a few years with all their tutorials and other videos. They make life appear so glamorous, so nice and you got to admit that their tips are usually very helpful! So, they are not the only ones who know a few tips and tricks, I got a some I can share too.
Other than this, I love me some pretty nails and girly stuff and I would like to share some of my favorites fashion or beauty trends with you.
Even though I like getting my nails done, I also really enjoy getting my hands dirty, meaning I love to cook or bake. Come on, I’m French, I feel like it’s mandatory, I have to love cooking and baking and of course pairing all of this with good wine! (Drinking age in France is 18). Especially when Bordeaux is THE wine country. (And isn’t bordeaux, or marsala the big color trend?)
I’m French, but American at heart. About three years ago, I decided to leave France to go on an adventure, I’m no Indiana Jones but, I left Bordeaux to go to Connecticut, in the little town of Mystic close to Stonington. It’s quite small but it’s lovely! I got the chance to share my American host family’s life, go to an American High School and dance at the prom (I ended up Prom Queen, me the little Frenchie!) and I got to live my American Dream.
Since I’m back in France, I have been back and forth, between my homeland and the U.S. And, everytime, I stock up on makeup and stuff, you know… just in case (if you know what I mean…). As I kept in touch with my American friends and family, I’d like to write posts both in french and english.
However, know that the U.S. are not the only place I like to travel to, I’d love to go…well…. everywhere! I believe that you don’t have to go that far away to travel, you just need to get out of your comfort zone (#shoutout to N.D. Walsch). Which is why, I am going to share all of the good spots I find out.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

So there is beauty, fashion, recipes, traveling, but I’m also going to use this blog to tell you about my favorite books, music, and other DIY’s, etc….
Just so you know, the kind of articles on this blog will depend on my mood, what I would like to write (and of course what you would like to read!). So hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I like to do it.
So here I am.
