Christmas movies

Netflix and Chill

A Christmas Prince – The Princess Switch – A Christmas Prince, The Royal Wedding

I love the winter season because it means staying cosy at home, with homemade hot chocolate eating comfort food & sweets and of course : watching movies ! I’m a total Netflix addict, so I binge everything I can on it.

They make actually good content, these are my six must-watch picks of the month. I’ve seen half of them so far, they were awesome. I’m super excited for the last one to come out, which is Mowgli, I have a feeling it will be very entertaining. Guys if you are in need for holiday themed movies, just head over there !

The Christmas Chronicles – The Holiday Calendar – Mowgli, Legend of the Jungle

Get to know me by watching these movies

These are the movies I’ve identified with the most

I picked six movies that I relate to a certain level, sometimes it’s just about the atmosphere not necesseraly the story, sometimes it’s more about the character’s feelings rather than what’s happening to them, but in all cases I’ve really felt close to what was depicted in my own way.

1. Martha Marcy May Marlene, 2011

I think everyone gets to have an interesting childhood to some degree; mine was weird mostly because there’s a whole bunch I just can’t seem to remember. It’s like I blacked out for most of it, and there’s this uneasy feeling about what actually happened to my life then. Which is why I relate to Martha in this movie, even her hallucinations and bursts.


2. Blue is the Warmest Color, 2013

I was a teenager going to high school when I fell in love for the first time, on sight… a bit like Adèle in the movie did. It was unexpected and definitevely not what I had imagined. It was something really special, and it changed what I thought of myself & the world forever.


3. Welcome to the Rileys, 2010

Mallory is kind of a runaway, we don’t know where she comes from and why she’s the way she is; which is the type of person I became after I left my first love. I couldn’t handle certain things so I just packed and left everything, even though I was still way too young for a life like that on the road. I was secretive, but I met great people who ultimately lead me back home.

4. To the Bone, 2017

This was the worst peak of my life – back home, I had to deal with my eating disorder. I looked like a ghost of myself, my parents in an attempt to help me get through it gave me the one thing they knew would make me happy : they sent me away to study abroad in Los Angeles, it had always been a dream of mine. I met my best friend there and we became like family to each other, stranded across the world in the strangest of cities together.

5. La La Land, 2016

Then I think I fell in love again… but who could say really. It was such a short-lived romance if I can call it that way, but in the midst & glamour of the city of angels it felt like magic. I had never felt so light and safe before, it didn’t need words. That’s when I realized that my heart belonged forever to LA, and that it had chosen this place because of that moment in time, as the only place that I could ever consider as my real home.

6. Paper Towns, 2015

Then the real life struggles hit me, which I wasn’t prepared for and did not want to take responsibility of. I realized that maybe I could never make my dreams come true, but I did not want to just give up and become the cliché that is anyone else I knew. I didn’t want to fit in, and be part of society the way it was demanded of me, I wanted to be free so I ran… and I’m still on the run. Like Margo, and my best friends are supporting me & they mean the world.

Blonde ambitions

Another oldie, but a goodie

This is a short music video BTS (behind the scenes) style, I made with my muse back when I was studying at EF in Los Angeles. So many fun memories, and what a great model !

Bits of Los Angeles…

Taking a trip down Memory Lane

I’ve been feeling nostalgic since my school closed down in LA, and I started to watch some old videos from the time I was studying there & decided to share one of them down below; perhaps I’ll publish more “oldies”…

EPIC VLOG FAIL

I tried…

I was so motivated at start, there was even good weather conditions; a bright and sunny day in Paris is unusual at this time of the year. On this Halloween, I kept failing but I brought you something anyway, check it out, you’ve been warned.

Screen Test series

My muse’s first screen test

I wanted to start a new video series some time ago, and my mind was set on “screen tests”. It’s something we do in L.A. when we want to find out if we’re casting the right person, if they can fit the character. But, I will be just doing it because I enjoy the small chats that happen during those sessions & I want to expand it into a series, getting as many people as I can involved.
