I am the French papellerette of Papellerie!I was born and raised in Nantes, France. As much as I love France, I have always been drawn to the US. I miss a lot of things about France, my family, my friends, the food, and also just the general atmosphere there but my first trip to the States made me fall in love with the United States.


After that, I returned to study for 2 semesters at LSU (Geaux Tigers!) and got the opportunity to come back, in Houston this time, for an internship. After finishing my masters I came back again. I started at Papellerie in March and got caught into wedding season.


I absolutely love working at Papellerie and help the team with project management. This is such a positive environment and everyone is so happy all the time! My favorite part is to see a project come to life and
how happy our clients are when they see the final result. I also love receiving paper or material sample
in the mail.


When I am not at Papellerie I am

I love spending my weekends New Orleans, my favorite city in the US. I just love the historic feeling and the beautiful houses and they have a festival for everything (oysters, strawberry, creole tomato, jazz fest...).


What’s your favorite thing to
listen to?

Daft Punk and Phoenix are my favorite artists to listen to right now! And they're French :) But I also like American pop music.


Favorite way to unwind?

I love cooking. Having a chef as a dad helps, so I have a few delicious recipes up my sleeves! I also love discovering everything that Houston has to offer with my favorite American guy. One more thing I'm guilty of is shopping. I could spend days online or at the stores. I love fashion and reading fashion magazine and blogs.


Favorite color combo/scheme?

I love black, dark blue, beige and grey with a pop of color, either pink or red.


Favorite quote?

The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive.


I could not live without?

Chocolate. Even when I'm sick I need
some chocolate.
