15 avril 2018 - Commentaires fermés sur WHAT WITCHES DO, GIRLBOSSES SHOULD DO TOO


Ok there! So lately, I’ve had many emails & mps on Instagram around how to awaken your inner magic… or witch (ouhhhhhhh). What are my favorite technics to set intentions, work with the flow? Let magic enter into your life?

Believe it or not. I’m an entrepreneur, a business woman – tell me about it, when agencies tell us we are too expensive for them. We, freelancers, young entrepreneurs/solopreneurs in the events/digital/ creative world are not too expensive for brands, they love what we do... and we are not going to create concepts for advert & events agencies to win awards, without paying for it, it’s life. Either you create your own concepts or you buy concepts from others. Get used to it, or accept that classical agencies are dying… -  So, having said that.

I am also a girl boss witch. I have practical tools to develop my business. And magical ones. And mixing those two have been my most favorite habit on earth those past 6 years (since I’ve created my company).

So here are 3 of my most favorite habits to set intentions & play with my inner magic





1. A visionboard. Just for you to understand how it looks like, if you’re not yet a visionboard goddess (you’ll soon be, trust me)… A vision board has to look like a painting (A3 or A4 format) filled with inspiring messages & pictures, colours to settle your vibration and wishes for the future.

How do you want your life to feel like? How do you want your romantic partner to be like?  How should your business life will be filled with in a few months?

Choose pictures that make you feel good right in the moment. Do the same with nice words (write or take some words from magazines that inspire you) and don’t overthink the process. Just do it for fun and let the magic happen. Creative people tend to do MOOBOARD very often & it helps them on a daily basis. Just connect to this practice with the same attitude. Just let it be fun & inspiring to you.

You can make one at every new moon, but I tend to create one every 3 months to let time for magic to happen. I keep mine in a nice envelop and only look at it during my new moon meditations. To let go & relax. And I also have more elegant polaroid moodboard next to my desk that reminds me of my favorite inspirations!

Here are a few examples on pinterest...


2. Your favorite cristals. I bring them everywhere with me to protect my energy, help me be more creative or dreamy. Or grounded, depending on my interior state. I bought mine in New-York but you choose them by touching them in your hands. If they feel a little hot, they’re good for you. Don’t worry too much about their meanings as they really have a connection with you depending on your inner story. My point of view.


3. Notebooks dedicated to your intentions& dreams for the future,if I want to keep my intentions and look at them later or a nice paper and a pen, where I’ll write down my intentions. And burn the paper after my meditation, to let “the universe work for it, or for something even better” without me wanting to schedule the outcome.

And to be sincere. I have notebooks for every part of my life. An evening thank-you notebook, helping me every evening to be thankful for all the surprises I’ve found during the day. A monthly notebook for my intentions & another one for my morning thoughts & night dreams. My husband loves offering them to me, so it makes the whole process even more precious!






Would say yes… The best time to set your intentions is during the new moon phase. Again, it’s how you feel about it that will make you choose the new moon instead of another period during the month.
But if you feel like trying, there is the agenda of the different moons periods & attitudes around it.

And here is a little planner I love to remind me when to clear energies & when to set my intentions:





And now that you’re ready to get a little creative & mystic (or just creative) around all this, here is a little gift for you.

My favorite New Moon Meditation Ritual,a 20 to 60 mn session… And a few things you can buy to meditate in a magical environment…

« Walk barefoot, listen to the wind, drink in the moon… Be magic! »

I love witches books & rituals. Maybe because I love rituals. They make me activate my creativity in the present moment and if I need to use beautiful tools during the process … They’re even more precious to me. I’ve had so many good times reading my mother’s witches books when I was a child. I should readapt some of them for you one day here! But until then... How to connect to your inner guru & witch on new moons to set your intentions & play with your magic? Here is a little meditation & ritual I love practicing, in the 8 hours following the new moon.

You can find a calendar of the different moon phases for 2018 right here




Here are a few of my most precious ingredients to start with a NEW MOON INTENTIONS RITUAL…


-      A few fresh flowers & petals, I love buying them at Marché des Enfants Rouges in Paris and love to choose the freshest ones… Because the smell is as important as the look!

-      A hot homemade Matcha or Chaï latte.

-      Favorite cristals. I bought mine in New-York but you choose them by feeling them in your hands. If they feel a little hot, they’re good for you. Don’t worry too much about their meanings as they really have a connection with you depending on your inner story. My point of view.

-      Your favorite candles.I choose organic ones, because they’re not too harmful for my baby’s health. Here, you just need many of them to light your space during your evening meditation.

-      My favorite notebook dedicated to my intentions& dreams for the future, if I want to keep my intentions and look at them later or a nice paper and a pen, where I’ll write down my intentions. And then, burn the paper after my meditation, to let “the universe work for it, or for something even better” without me wanting to schedgule the outcome.

-      My last vision board, (a little explanation here about how to…) with inspiring messages & pictures to settle my vibration.

-      My favorite card-desk & tarots. We're designing some for next winter but since then, I love the amazing Wilde Unknown Tarot Deck, the sweet Gabrielle Bernstein ones, Or/And angel cards from Doreen Virtue of course...

-      Et la touche finale, a rainbow maker or prism to play with your candle lights…




  1. I usually have a bath or long relaxing shower
  2. I wear my favorite soft leggings & and I favor organic cotton whenever I can, and I take care of my body & hair before the process. I take my time.
  3. I Light up my candles and I prepare my favorite CHAÏ LATTE.
  4. Then I set up my cristals, a few petals & card-desks, notebook & visionboard around me, with cushions on the floor or on my bed if I feel comfy on it – sometimes I love being by the window to see the sky…
  5. I’ll also have my little flowers creations all around the place in different vases.


Before the meditation, I’ll read back my visionboard & have a few notes on my intentions notebook. I try to be very precise on the feelings I want to feel, rather than on the things I want to have. For example, “I want my everyday job life to be fun & creative, surrounded by more & more inspiring people” or “I want to feel abundance in my aspect of my life for the months coming”, rather than “I want to win 100K euros next month”. But you just do & try what’s best for you.

Then, I meditate (see the meditation below)

And smoothly go back to my notebook for an intuitive writing session. The meditation might have given me some insights on how to shift my attitude to get what I want. Not everytime so be gentle with yourself. Just write without to much thinking for 2 to 3 pages.

And I end up using my card-desk for a few inspiring last words.





You can start your meditation by this powerful sentence I practiced & learned from Gabby Bernstein when I first met her for a Masterclass in New York ‘I welcome into this space, the (choose your favorite words) energies/angels of the highest good & compassion to guide me & my intentions through this meditation’. And go on with my favorite personal Mental Preparation for Success Meditation session, right here for you. The relaxation part is very essential to get in tune with your alpha mode(when your ego stops focusing so be careful to be very precise with this part of the meditation for the rest of the session to be efficient )

Enjoy the process, and let me know how it went!

16 février 2018 - Commentaires fermés sur GIRLBOSSES: HOW TO SURVIVE THE BAD DAYS


A few weeks ago... While we were having quite a complicated time at the studio... We were looking for a feel good conference to help us recharge. Because we just need to relax & chill sometimes... In Europe & especially in France, we know how to show the dark side of an adventure, even before its beginnings… AND YES. Building your biz is as hard as building a home & a day-to-day life with your soulmate  sometimes. And you'll never be in the « Ever After » place for more than an hour or two.

The feeling of being finally where you’re supposed to be, will last, for a moment. And will go away. And the process of being & learning how to be a successfull entrepreneur ? This will last forever, as this is a journey.

This is what Sophia Amoruso, Founder & CEO of GIRLBOSS MEDIA is today trying to share  across the US & on this video...

And this is the point here girlbosses ! You need to learn how to find your cocoon, in an insecure environment. And this is where feel-good contents around our girlboss life can help. Just because it helps soothe your mind & calm your ego. As the child within us, listening to nice stories, helps. A lot.

So here are:


That could help you just be a little happier, when you'd rather go back to bed, on a Monday morning.

And remember… WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, AT EVERY STAGE OF OUR BUSINESS so surround yourself with people that help you grow and sparkle. And take care of your everyday life, the very important part of how you feel is hidden in these little habits.


Sophia, a misfit, discovers a passion for fashion, becoming an unlikely businesswoman in the process. As her business grows, however, she has to learn to cope with life as her own boss. This show is loosely based on the true story of Nasty Gal Founder, Sophia Amoruso.

2. THE FILM, The Intern :

70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin.

3. OUR FAVORITE QUOTES, feeding the team everyday :   



Stressed out





Down the dump

That you might have a real panik attack


You’re supposed to learn everyday. Not so many entrepreneurs actually know what they do when they start their business. They hide behind their pride, but learn while they’re actually doing the thing they don’t know how to manage yet. They ajust everyday. So just accept that you’re learning next to people that might also have no clue where they are going, even if they do pretend they do. So keep sparkling, at every stage. Because you’re living the best creative of your life and the journey, with its ups & downs is as exciting as the moments of success.

4 janvier 2018 - Commentaires fermés sur WHAT BOSS*LADIES NEED IN A MAN 


Behind every successful man, there is a woman.” Who actually said that? And, is there a Man behind every Successful woman? We might not know the answer yet to this question but if you want to know what Girlbosses are expecting to find in a man today… read this !

Here are 10 attractive traits that any self driven woman would love to see in her man for a happy, strong, passionate, loving and long-lasting relationship… And yes, we do believe in Unicorns too !


« be in the real world when you actually plan to SHOW THE WORLD what you’ve got ». It can be really overwhelming when you start a new business or driving your existing business forward. You need to remain focused and sometimes it’s a relief to have a partner who is down-to-earth and make sure you don’t forget to feed the cat and yourself… or even go pick up your baby at the nursery coz it totally slipped your mind that it was your turn.


"Actually plan & do shopping for her" How on earth do people know they’ll want to eat spaghetti on Thursday and roast Chicken on Friday? Just sitting at the kitchen table and guessing what everyone would like to eat every night of the week requires supernatural powers to achieve.


« be a good listener, at 8pm, 1am, and again 8 am ». Empathy involves both the head and the heart. The perfect Man shall master the 3 As :

Awareness - Be aware of how she feels and what’s behind that feeling.

Agenda - Ability to set aside your own agenda and focus on her needs.

Action - Take action on meeting those needs.


Oh yeah!!! There’s nothing sexier than a man in the kitchen… waiting for you with a glass of wine and some delicious Italian food that he made himself of course! And if you become the perfect Netflix expert, finding the episode or film, when she’s tired to match her state of mind, she might as well marry you spontaneously !


She’ll never be ready to take the time to eat, stop typing on her iphone or go take a shower to finally watch your favorite film together and neither feel ready to book your next trip in Asia. You need to be the one who’ll take those decisions and be strong enough to ask her to STOP. And relax. Show her what the world of « quality time » really means. But be patient, she’ll challenge your stress level on that subject !


« Plan finances so that you just have to be the creative mind in the family ». Did you know that Obama even had someone to choose his suits every day when he was president of the United States ? The less you need to figure out around every detail of your life, the more you’ll get time to dream, let go and then be creative. To understand the process you should read Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert. 


« Create a safe place where she can be vulnerable and let it go…». It’s challenging to be that strong, self-confident woman 24h round the clock… And it’s so comforting to know that you have someone special, a man, who is there during those moments of doubts when you feel helpless…


« Yeah sex is really really important, don’t wing it». Let’s talk about sex… Is sex important in a relationship? It is just as important as trust and communication… No matter what you do in life (girlboss or not!), you are the luckiest gal on earth if  you find a partner out there who is on the same page on that topic.


 « Don’t try to change a girlboss but rather think about how to make it work….». Supporting her dreams and aspirations and never make her choose. Because if you ask her so… you might as well get a very bad surprise. She might choose her dreams instead of you. Don’t try to change her… And let her shoot for the moon, even if it's too big. Believe that she can do it, and she might as well, land among the stars.


Actually, it’s not that we really want to have it all but to find a healthy balance with this “Perfect Guy” . Because, whatever happens, if the Girlboss gives up what makes her shine inside, she’ll no longer be the woman that “you” fell in love with in the first place…

And ladies, what about you? Did you find your “perfect man” in your Girlboss adventure? We want to hear from you !!!

7 juin 2017 - Commentaires fermés sur 3 BOOKS TO FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS


Where are you exactly in the process of following the career of your dreams? Did you start looking for new opportunities? Left your job to start your own business? Turned to a part time job, to just discover what could be the things that light you up? Or just left for a 2 months trip in Asia to figure out who you are? And in this process, how do you exactly listen to yourself, to know that your decision is the right thing to do?

Everyone has it's own secret to tune in to an energy of pure creativity and intuition. But maybe you just didn't find it yet. I consider myself as lucky as I've never worked more than 2 years, in a job that didn't fit my inner wellbeing and dreams.

And how do you know when you need to change? It's basic. You'll first need time & calm, with yourself. A week-end can be enough, depending of your energy level, at that time. And here are some of my best 3 steps to come back to a very intuitive attitude towards life, the 3d STEP being very, very important : the "feel good" book therapy, to change your outlook on a situation...

STEP 1. WATER, MASSAGE, CANDLES (or a trip to Bali or Rome).

I've always loved making my own very nice spa in my bathroom. Taking hours in the process. But I can also offer to myself a Hammam session. This purifycation process is my step 1 to go back to my natural flow of creativity.


When I'm in this very soothing "me time" week-end process, I sleep until I feel completely energized again (hello mamas there, you'll have to let your little baby to the grandmas around da place, yeah girls you'll have to :). It's not about just sleeping for a complete night. It's about sleeping for a whole day and a whole night until you've had your amount of sleep you were missing since a couple of weeks already (even if doctors tell you that sleeping for a whole week-end cannot be as efficient as having a good night sleep every single day, when your mind is lost, for an energizing week-end, it's ONE OF MY FAV TOOLS).


During this week-end, I light up candles, read cards, have creative writing sessions and start a new sweet, mindful creative book. For a fresh energy start. Because we all know many books carry with them, their amount of good vibes & energy that can help you shift a little, to a new attitude in your life (and this is the same with films & series so be aware of what you watch on Netflix on a daily basis a it really has an impact on your energy level, especially if you're a sensitive kinda girl boss like me 🙂

And here are the books that really did boost my energy & creativity + success for a while after I'd enjoy reading them:

BIG MAGIC, Creative living beyond fear, by Elizabeth GILBERT

You might certainly know Elizabeth for her incredible book EAT, PRAY, LOVE. In Big Magic, she digs deep into her own life to share her perspective on creativity. With profound empathy and generosity, she ponders the nature of inspiration, asking us to embrace our curiosity and face what we most fear. This is one of the books you really need to read if you keep asking yourself 'Am I right to follow my intuition?'


Most women have spent much of their working lives 'making it' in a man's world, leaning on patriarchal methods of survival in order to succeed, dulling down their intuition and ignoring the fierce power of their feminine. This book is about recognizing all of the ways we have been keeping ourselves contained and restrained in effort to fit into a certain archetype of woman. It's about co-creating a whole new archetype of woman - a woman who deeply respects the wise women in her life and cultivates her own wisdom every single day. Full of tools, calls to action, contemplative questions, rituals and confrontational exercises, this book teaches women that it is safe to let their energy rise.


It's all about 21 ways to transform your habits (and we all know it's all about habits right? ) and reach your full potential. Shannon is one of those girls (just like me and some of you girl bosses) who left her successful career (in advertising for her) several years ago to follow her heart, and be a writer. She is the bestselling author of Find Your Happy


For all those girls out their, who keep thinking they're already too old to trust their soul and finally be themselves. That you can reach the stars until you're 30 and that right after, something curious and terrible happen, that make you too old for everything looking just like the carrier of your dreams. It's never too late to follow your dreams & intuition and Catherine has this talent to tell you her story with sparkles & sweet words. Her book is like a 1 week spa for your mind, or a trip to Bali. But you'll have to read in french if you wanna discover her good words & vibes. OR wait for the english version coming soon, soon, soon!

The love letter that will change your life!

I've had many hard times in my business & personal life, as every entrepreneur I know. But, by chance, I've always been very sweet & poetic with myself. Always buying flowers, putting candles everywhere and writing letters to myself, for a feel good moment that could change my outlook on the situation... Writting has always been an act of meditation for me. I send myself good vibes for the futur.

And this is one of my favorite tools I teach to the people I coach. When you feel tired or lost in the process of creating a business and life you love, what about writting yourself a love letter? You can either write and send it to yourself or just keep it as I do, to increase your energy level and bring more abundance & happiness into your life. We’re not in charge of every detail of our lives, except the energy we bring with us and around us. And taking care of our energy by just sending love, to ourselves and others a few hours a week, can change the way, the energy flows into our lives… Trust me.

And this is what Hannah Brencher did a few years ago. So when she felt herself bottom into depression after college, she did what felt natural — she wrote love letters and left them for strangers to find. The act has become a global initiative, The World Needs More Love Letters, which rushes handwritten letters to those in need of a boost. And I bet this has changed her life and the lives of many others… So what do you think ? Let’s bring a little bit of romance in your business & life plans!
