Julie was not born in Lyon, but she did decide to start her family here! Not that long ago, she would spend most of her evenings out at concerts... Although she has already bought ear defenders for her little 19-month-old boy, so that he can discover the joys of live rock and electronic music (soon!), she is now much more of a morning person as a mother.

This does not prevent her from continuing to explore Lyon and the surrounding area in search of new (kid-friendly) places for days out, quite the contrary! Nor has she forgotten her passion for fashion (more sustainable than before) and beauty salons (we hope that Julie shares the name of that magical concealer, the grail of young parents, when she finds it...). She also likes reading and writing as much as ever.

Her phone is never far away, and she searches Instagram to find new local addresses to try, and pins inspiration for beautiful and tasty things on Pinterest whenever she can. We wouldn’t say Julie is a computer geek, but she has made a note to herself to try out TikTok on her new to-do list app!
