She is a French fashion blogger, television presenter, and founder of Wandertea, in our eyes she is a true entrepreneur! In this exclusive interview, she gives us tips and tricks on how she blogs, as well as her favourite APM collections!
Interview answered in French and translated in English as below
1. What made you decide to start blogging?
Déjà présente sur Facebook et Twitter à l’époque, beaucoup de personne me posait des questions sur mon look, mon maquillage , ma coiffure… Pour répondre à cette demande et pour partager mes conseils avec eux, j’ai lancé mon blog.
Already known on Facebook and twitter, a lot of people asked questions about my look, my makeup, my hair… So, to answer all their questions and share my advice, I launched my blog.
2. Do you have any tips for someone who want to start a blog?
S’inspirer mais ne pas imiter, rester soi même, avoir son propre style et partager sincèrement
To get inspired but not to imitate. Stay true to yourself, have your own style and share it sincerely.
3. What’s your favourite thing to write/blog about?
Je manque de temps pour écrire autant d’article qu’avant , mais j’adore écrire et partager une part de moi avec mes lecteurs
I do not have time to write as many articles as I used to, but I love to write about myself to share a part of me with my readers
4. Some say you’re an entrepreneur, how do you juggle your life of businesswoman and blogger?
J’adore avoir ces 2 casquettes, business woman and blogger! J’essaye de m’investir à fond dans ces 2 rôles, même si parfois l’un peut prendre le dessus sur l’autre. Le plus difficile et de réussir à se déconnecter un peu et à se laisser du temps pour prendre soin de soi et de son entourage ..
I love having these two titles, business woman and blogger! I try and invest myself fully in both my roles, even if once in a while one is bigger than the other. The most difficult thing is to allow myself to disconnect a little and have time to take care of me and my entourage.
5. Who would you say is your number one fashion inspiration?
Comme célébrités, j’adore le style de Sienna Miller.
Comme Blogger, j’adore Sincerely Jules et Negin Mirsalehi
Celebrity wise I love Sienna Millers style
As for bloggers I love Sincerely Jules and Negin Mirsalehi
6. How do you dress up an outfit?
Je déteste en faire trop , même lorsqu’il s’agit de me rendre à un événements ou un Fashion Week. Je préfère être moins “fashionista” mais plus à l’aise dans mes vêtements et assumer mon style à 100% plutôt que d’attirer tous les regards sans assumer mon look.
I hate looking like I’ve put too much effort, even when it comes to going to an events or a Fashion Week. I prefer to be less “fashionista” but more comfortable in my clothes and assume my style 100% as oppose to attract all the looks without assuming my look.
7. Heels or flats? Flats !
8. As APM’s new face you must have a favourite collection, which one is it? and Top 3 creations you wear most?
My favourite collection is the Baby XL one !
Top 3 : Ete, Pure and Croisette
9. Monaco to you is..? Grace Kelly !
10. How would you describe your style and creativity? Casual Chic, feminine
11. The quote of your life? What goes around, comes around #karma
12. The one thing your followers would be surprised to know about..?
Plus jeune, je souhaitais devenir institutrice. Je n’aurai jamais imaginé avoir cette vie aujourd’hui …
When I was younger, I wanted to become a teacher. I never imagined having this life today …

Welcome to our Spring report of the year!
Whether you have already been buying APM Jewelleries or thinking of getting your first piece, this list of buying guidelines will be showing you the top ranking of our best sellers, from earrings, rings, bracelet to necklace…with APM, there is always something for everyone!
Asymmetric design earrings (or in some cases, a big or small mono statement earring) has become a major jewelry trend street-style and on the runways.
Here, we have our FLAMENCO fan earring, METEORITES cuff earring and the XL safety pin mono earring. All have been the top on our best-selling list.
Ever since the trend of re-imaging pearls with a modern update, together with the playful safety pin ideas, the SATURNE pearl ring, BABY XL safety pin trio ring have been making a cutting-edge statement, and the most sought-after products. On the other hand, many of our fans are still going with a timeless classic piece – the CROISETTE ring.
BRACELET / CUFF
After seasons of larger-than-life statement bangles with baubles, fringes … The silhouette is downsizing with pretty & dainty yellow gold, layers of thin bracelets, and skinny cuffs. From the lucky eye ETE bracelet to yellow gold VALENTINE bracelet with color stones, and the classic METEORITES stars cuff, though less “statement” in size, these APM jewelleries are making just as much of an impact.
Dominated by the choker for the past few seasons, the long necklace has made a bold comeback, the MARQUISE dropping necklace and VALENTINE long necklace are ranking top of their category.
Yet, the choker hasn’t said its goodbye just yet. The super fine chokers with simple but strong statement designs like our safety pin necklace, are championed by customers this Spring.
We hope you will find the perfect Spring piece(s) for yourself and that our shopping guide useful. Stay tune with us for the next season’s report!

Chinese communities around the globe are preparing to launch their New Year, the most important holiday in the Chinese calendar. Starting from this Saturday, the many fabulous celebrations will commence, this year being the Year of the Rooster. The New Year is celebrated through parades, dragon dances, elaborate dinners and most importantly, family reunions. A top tip is that Red clothing is considered essential (to scare off the mythical dragon- Nian)!!!! This long festival has different “activities” everyday and “Yuan Xiao” the Lantern Festival on Day 15 marks the final day of the traditional CNY celebrations, where red Chinese lanterns are released beautifully into the sky. Here’s our guide to dressing for different events that take place during the festival.
Remember, red & gold are key.
Wanting a more subtle look to celebrate the festival ? Have you thought of a red lip? This will implement your look- and all you’ll need is a red lippy (which you probably already have in your makeup drawer). Put your lipstick on, then stack on some gold bracelets and you’ll be good to go.
