  • Hi Leonce, just to say I’m really enjoying your blog & have re-read a few of the articles recently. Particularly like the beauty & the lifestyle articles. Being from the UK, I do sometimes feel looking after yourself has gone out the window here & it’s a shame. Has been a while since have visited France but your blog has got me thinking to plan a little trip even just for the day 🙂

    • Merci beaucoup Caroline 🙂 I’m really happy to hear you enjoy the content here, it means a lot to me!
      I hope you’ll enjoy your future trip to France! Have a lovely day xo
