I'm Caroline, French brunette who decided to expand my life after 10 years in the French event management industry. After a lot of travels on this amazing planet, I decided to settle in Melbourne, the fashion city of excellence in Australia.
Passionate about fashion, beauty, and lover of my French culture, I wanted to start a blog to share with you my thoughts, tips, secrets, and my favourite places that bring me back to France.

Let me tell you a bit about my journey. When I was 30 years-old it was definitely time for change after almost 7 years with my business. My business? A hostess agency that allowed me to work for the most prestigious events and be inspired, especially during the 6 year Cannes Film Festival.
Largely recognized for my professionalism, sense of style, and determination to bring La Crème de la Crème in my work, I travelled between Paris (my city of heart), Marseille (my city of origin), and the French Riviera. That was my life, not so bad to be honest.
Then, I decided to travel (voyager) with a huge desire to discover a new culture and finally learn English; what bring me to Australia. I was not married, no kids with an appetite to learn more and more about different cultures. After all we live once (on ne vit qu'une fois). At 33 years-old, it was time. I gave up my profession, on my way, I left my ex, I sold everything, I worked on my spirit and mind (still working), repeating to myself "je peux le faire" (yes I can do it). I said au revoir to my family and friends, I bought a one-trip ticket, and I arrived in Melbourne with my two luggages full of clothes (the only thing I couldn’t sell of course). And voilà, here I am!
