Everything about Julie suggested that she might one day become Miss France. As the daughter and granddaughter of miners in the north of France, she is tall and fair, resolutely against any form of armed conflict and other injustices throughout the world, and looks divine when wearing a sash… But that was in theory.


The truth of it is that she loves rock 'n' roll, has a passion for all things related to aperitifs and can't help pulling a face when wearing a silk crepe hat.

Trained in arts and crafts, fashion and design, and highly experienced in special event management, she now infuses her taste for lovely, new and obviously cool things on your favourite website. She's constantly on the lookout for the right deal in the right place at the right time ("right" being the operative word). Julie now feels very much at home in Lyon and invites us into her parlour to find true north.
