It’s time to go !

We’re going back home !

It really is overdue to go back to my beloved city of angels. My sister is coming along this time around, we’ve planned a whole month away to California – it’ll be from March to April.

We’ll be arriving just in time for WonderCon, my favorite convention down in Anaheim. We’ll also go to Disneyland while we’re there that weekend. We’ve decided for San Diego & Las Vegas to be part of our trip, but we’ll probably add other cities because we want to explore.


We won’t be staying in L.A. the entire time, we’re bound to it but we need adventures ! I got this crazy idea to film our vacation and make it into a “reality TV” type of web-series, lightly scripted, totally off the rails… I’ll be posting that on here and my YouTube channel.

It’s going to be a lot of fun. We’ll be based in South Bay for the amazing beaches and because when I first moved to Los Angeles that was my home, and I miss it so much, I want to relive those awesome feelings with my sister. We’re going full California girls style ! I literally want to do the most LA-esque things there are.


I cannot wait to see my best friend Noah, who’s stayed to live there. We’re basically the same person, it’s wild. I’ll always love this place dearly and that’s why I’m attracted to going back there all the time. After these many years, I still have the same dreams… without the illusions.

But I don’t want to feel like giving up because the world is too realistic. So I’m trying again, what do I have to lose from this, everything is gain. I think we all need that bit of magic in our lives to survive it, that’s why this is important to me, that’s why we’re leaving to enjoy every single second of this nostalgic trip.

Throwbacks photos to Santa Monica from last September… ugh, I miss this place more than I’d miss breathing air.

“i have a really good vegan accent” – overheard in LA

I woke up at 3AM and started editing…
Sunsets in LA

I couldn’t sleep last night, I was up half the night thinking about the city of angels and what it meant to me. I looked through some pictures and just because I couldn’t fall back asleep anyway, decided to edit them for The Blog.

It’s funny, I always wake between 3-4am Paris time… which is like 6/7 PM in LA, usually when I’d start looking for a place to get dinner or when I’d go grocery shopping & then eat at home. Sometimes I almost feel like I’m getting used to living in Paris, but then I have these little body reminders.Sunsets in LASunsets in LASunsets in LASunsets in LA

You can’t keep an angel down

Sunsets in L.A.
You can't keep an angel down

Tomorrow is my birthday… another year went by like it was nothing. I still haven’t achieved my dreams; at this point of my life I’m almost giving up on dreaming, it seems pointless. Wanting to do things that are much bigger than me, for the sake of something as innocent as creating and producing art sounds more impossible with each passing day.

But this year didn’t mean nothing to me… I got to be with the people that are dearest to my heart, some I hadn’t seen for years. It was a gift, a blessing even. I could go as far as saying a miracle for one particular person that I thought I’d never see again, and that impossibility made possible restored some hope and faith.

I never realized how important love and caring is until I was met with it unconditionally. It’s just a fleeting impression that I never want to go away because it’s the only thing keeping me afloat, driving me to become stronger and better. I never stopped loving that moment in time that shifted my life forever, I’ll never do.

I’ll always be chasing it in the back of my mind, even if the pain this past life brings me could kill me.

Weekend vibes in Malibu

Point Dume
Weekend vibes in Malibu

The beaches of Malibu… they’re the best ones in California. I love to go on little hikes to Point Dume for the amazing views you can only see from up there. I sometimes even see sea lions ! You can actually notice a bunch of them in my pictures here, if you zoom in 🙂

7 movies that have marked me

I felt very connected to these storylines

I’m making a short list of movies that have marked me, from the story to the ambience and the acting… everything in the movies down below really kept my focus deeply interested from beginning to end, and they definitevely left something with me after watching them.

1. Black Swan, 2010

It’s about this wannabe “prima ballerina” who is obsessed with becoming so perfect in order to reach her almost impossible goal, that she’s actually losing her mind trying to achieve it. It gets darker and more intense as the movie unfolds, and it targets mental issues that I believe are more common than we’d like to admit.

2. Lovelace, 2013

I used to live in the Valley of Los Angeles for quite a while, and I adored it there, it has a reputation though and it’s nicknamed “Porn Valley” so obviously seeing pornstars casually getting Starbucks was not something I was unfamiliar with, although it was not as shady as it sounds… but I’ve always been interested in the behind the scenes of the porn industry, that’s why I checked this movie out. It’s really harsh and unpleasant what happens to Linda Lovelace, but it’s probably something everyone should watch.

3. The Wrestler, 2008

I’m a Mickey Rourke fan, and I was really excited when it was announced he would be the lead in this indie movie because it felt like for a while we didn’t get much of him on screen and he’s such a talented actor that he deserved something to measure up to his talent. This was a perfect fit for him in my opinion, he plays this washed out wrestler that has a couple of health and money issues, coupled with untraditional relations & breakdowns. It’s just a great movie, and it’s different from most.

4. Thirteen, 2003

I was actually thirteen years old when I saw this movie for the first time… so totally relatable, to a point. Evan Rachel Wood plays this Californian girl who’s got complicated issues to deal with for her young age, and obviously she starts acting out because she’s not able to handle things like an adult especially because the adults in her life are not the greatest example.

5. Monster, 2003

I think it’s after seeing this movie that my obsession with serial killers started… I was just so confused and scared of what a person can endure, act like, and come to be, that it was the beginning for me of trying to understand the minds of these so called people. I reckon that it’s unhealthy since it gives me nightmares, but somehow I can’t stop wondering why they are being so glamorized and have become such addictive topics to society.

6. The Virgin Suicides, 1999

This movie should be subtitled “the teenagehood depression”; Sofia Coppola is a mastermind at discerning teen angst and their feelings and accurately representing them. The Lisbon sisters are having what seems like at first, as quite a normal suburban life but in reality, behind the curtains it’s all kinds of wrong and it leads them to the ultimate sacrifice, which they prefer to keeping up any other way. It’s quite a shocking ending.

7. Into the Wild, 2007

I’m sure almost all of us at some point in our lives can relate to Emile Hirsch’s character. He’s fed up with society and its stubborn unbendable rules, he just wants to be free and exist for himself, and discover what life is really about. He goes on this road trip he’ll never be able to come back from, but at the end, even if it isn’t what he could have expected, he finally finds his answer.
