You might not be aware of it, but this tiny silicone sponge is shaking up the beauty sphere. Wondering why? Cosmetic companies and makeup artists have been telling us for years to apply our skincare and makeup with brushes or foam sponges. It’s supposed to give your foundation a flawless finish, make it look more even and keep all the oils and bacteria from your fingers from clogging your pores. This is assuming that you clean your brush/sponge regularly and let it dry completely before you reuse it. Let’s face it, I barely have time to apply my makeup (and I am a little lazy), so this is too much of a commitment for me.
Then I had the opportunity to try the Kissbobo Silicone Makeup Sponge, and after 2 weeks of using it, here are 5 reasons why you should swap out your fingers/foam sponge/brush for it:
I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Arts District lately. First, because the Hauser and Wirth space always has cool and free exhibitions (check out this one that I recently posted on my IG), and also because I am a big fan of the restaurant Manuela that recently opened there. I am posing in front of it on the pic above, it’s an open place with a great mid-century design, and the brunch is so yummy! If you wanna try the place let me know, I’ll be happy to go back 😘.
Dior said it first on their IT-tee last September: “We should all be feminist“. Well, lucky for us (the Dior tee was $550), the feminist tee is now a street-style staple, and you can find so many cool and more affordable versions of it on the market, like this one from SIX02!

Next week I am going to visit my friends and family in France! I am so excited but one thing is always a nightmare to me: packing. However, this year I can’t wait to break out my new Raden luggage, a luxury case that combines the best of design and technology. I love its pure, minimalist lines, but also its smart features: two built-in-chargers (IDEAL for me who always run out of battery), an integrated scale (how clever is this? I will NEVER have to pay for extra again at check-in), and location technology so you can spot it while you’re waiting at baggage claim.
We’re getting more and more personal on the blog this week! After this post, in which I shared my hesitation about trying fillers (still thinking about it!), I would like to discuss a topic that is taboo for a lot of women: plastic surgery.
Unless you haven’t looked at Instagram in the past 3 months, you must have noticed that straw/raffia bags have invaded your feed. Here’s 3 reasons why you should get one:
I’ve been surprising myself wearing colorful outfits recently (remember this tropical look?), but leopards do not change their spots…I definitely feel more comfortable when I am wearing black, white or neutral tones. I combined 3 old pieces of my wardrobe for this outfit: a grey IRO dress (currently on sale on Vestiaire Collective!), camel boots and a beige trench coat. Neutral but chic, don’t you think? You can shop the look at the end of the post!😘
The crop top trend is cute, but when you are a 32 years old mother, you can’t dress like when you were in your 20’s. I mean you could, but you don’t want to anymore. Your style changes, your fashion goals too. However, I love the tie-front shirt, especially when combined with high-waisted jeans. The collar keeps the shirt classic, and the tie lets you show a sliver of stomach. This cute polka dots top from Shein (for $10!) convinced me to show my belly again!
I am not going to lie to you: since I had my kid almost 3 years ago my skin changed, and not in a good way. Bye bye plumped and glowing skin from my 20’s, and welcome dark circles, dull complexion, and fine lines. Oh, and let’s not forget about the lion’s wrinkle, the one that automatically appears when you become a mother, because you won’t stop frowning and worrying about them from the moment they’re born until…well you just won’t stop !
I thought of trying fillers, it’s true….especially since I moved to Los Angeles, where injections are way more common on young women (yes, I am still considering myself as young at 32…am I right ?) than in Europe (I am French). But before I jump into it, one of my blogger friends recommended a non-invasive treatment, dispensed at Parfaire Aesthetics in Pasadena : the Silk Peel Facial.
The denim shorts with floral embroideries, the bohemian white shirt, the straw handbag…this look brings us to Saint Tropez, in the South of France ! Shop the look or similar items at the end of this post..
