Maison Lancôme: A Journey to the Source of the Finest Ingredients
Through them we can see just how the abundance of France inspired Lancôme founder, Armand Petitjean, to start a fragrance house so many years ago, and the Maison Lancôme collection certainly carries on that dream.

Go For Gold: Absolue Precious Oil
One of the things I love about Paris is how it withholds its beauty from no one. Its best assets aren’t hidden behind closed doors reserved for the elite, they are on display in the streets for everyone to see.
. . . a little bit of luxury in life now and then can go a long way.
Miracle on the Move: Complexion Confidence All Day Long
Some mornings I wake up, look in the mirror, and am ready to face the day. It doesn’t take much. There’s those other days though, the ones where I wake up on the proverbial wrong side of the bed, feeling like it will take a small miracle to put myself together for a full day in the city.
Just another tiny miracle to get my makeup through the afternoon.
Le Temps des Cerises: A Moment to Treasure!
I had been watching and waiting anxiously for our cherry blossoms to bloom here in Paris. It’s a special moment every Spring that I remember each year as I stop to photograph and marvel at them everyday for as long as they last.
Each year I think 'wouldn’t it be magic if our trees were pink all year round? If they just stayed this way?'
80 Years: A Lifetime of Lancôme
This year Lancôme celebrates its 80th anniversary. Can you imagine the lifetime of stories they could tell from eight decades of excellence in their field…
Day in and day out I write, photograph, and film the world in and around these products we use everyday as women and why.
Bardot & Birkin: Becoming these iconic French beauties
Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin — surely you’ve heard these household names! While Bardot is a born and bred Parisian and Birkin an anglo transplant from London, the two alike have embodied that certain je ne sais quoi it takes to achieve French icon status.
The two have often been considered rivals, but both stars denied the competition over the years.
The Runway the Real Way: My Paris Fashion Week Makeup
Fashion Week has come around again in Paris and as usual, it’s such an exciting and inspiring time. I love to see the looks that come down the runway each season…
The reality is though that fashion isn’t always as accessible as we would like.
FRENCH INNOCENCE: Parisian Spring Captured in the Perfect Collection
For me, the heart of Paris Rendez-Vous is visiting Paris every week with you to discover Lancôme’s many inspirations in the city we call home.
The taupe stone buildings like those lining the Rue de Rivoli, radiate warmth from the sun onto passers by.
THE MODERN FRENCH MANICURE
In case you’ve ever wondered, the French manicure is indeed actually French. Tracing back to Paris in the 1930s, its traditional nude or beige base with a white tip became popular in the United States in the 1970s. Fast forward to today…
There are a dozen ways to modernize a French manicure…
NEW YORK RENDEZ-VOUS: Jason Wu for Lancome
Just as I was ready to settle into my new routine for la rentrée, New York Fashion Week kicked off and swept me back to the states for work. As much as I love Paris, this occasion to jet off to the big apple twice a year is always exciting!
Wu’s elegant and fresh esthetic has an international appeal.
La Rentrée: Say goodbye to summer with a fresh face for fall!
Have you ever heard the French use the expression la rentrée? Each September, Parisians are abuzz with it, in a frenzy to suddenly get life back in order after their leisurely annual vacations come to an end.
I see this as the moment to start new happy and healthy habits.
GRANDIÔSE: Lancôme’s Mascara Innovation Bends the Rules!
We all have that beauty item, don’t we? That one thing from our beauty bag we would choose to
never go without. Mine is mascara, and apparently I’m not alone there either. Did you know…
Longer, thicker, defined lashes are the key to sparkling eyes…
A Scent to Remind You That Life Is Beautiful
What’s in a scent? For me, there’s an entire story. A fragrance can recall places, people and feelings. Smell is the strongest sense tied to memory, and for that reason even the perfumes I no longer wear I keep to decorate my vanity…
This is the scent of this season of my life.
Rendez-vous with Tokyobahnbao
A girl with a pseudonym like Tokyobahnbao is destined to have some personality, and after many years of following her online, I was looking forward to finally meeting this creative artist turned blogger for a Paris Rendez-vous.
I get inspiration from everywhere, but particularly just people I come across in real life.
Awakening the Senses at The Lancôme Institute
Every now and then I get so busy that I'm swept away by my work life and the hustle and bustle of my 20s here in Paris. At night I turn up exhausted and fall into bed, skipping my skincare routine entirely. In the morning it's back to go-go-go...
French women...have mastered always making time for a bit of pampering
Sleeping Beauty, Ageless Beauty
There is a beauty in aging. As we grow a bit older we should treasure the added wisdom that life experience continually brings. After all, we've had more time to get to know ourselves, and feel more confident of who we are.
Before bed, I take a moment to treat my skin so I can sleep soundly...
Unique Style, Right Down to Your Fingertips
Audrey is another American in Paris, one who has become more popularly known as Frassy. Her quirky pseudonym embodies the spontaneous overflow of fashion that is her philosophy on all things personal style. With such as an approach, she stands out in Paris.
Like me, Audrey moved to Paris to be creatively inspired.
Close Encounter with Louise Ebel
Louise is a young woman whose face many know before her name. On the pages of your favorite magazine or a recent campaign from a French fashion house, her doe-eyed glance and poise aren’t easily overlooked. Through the years as her alias Miss Pandora, we’ve watched her assume many roles...
Her complexion is so doll-like I wondered if she was real…
Honoring International Women’s Day
Lancôme and I believe that every day should be a celebration of women, and as part of the beauty industry, every day is. Each day we’re inspired by all the ways women are beautiful, working to bring them the highest quality cosmetics across the globe and remind them that they are and deserve to be beautiful.
In France this annual celebration has officially been a tradition for nearly 60 years.
Rendez-vous With My Very Own Valentine
Valentine was my very first parisienne friend. This is a very distinct moment in my life because I remember how nervous I was for our first rendez-vous. Somewhere after exchanging some emails and following one another’s adventures between our blogs, Hello It’s Valentine and Making Magique, I ended up making her a hat...
I like a lady who knows what she likes and who she is, unafraid to say so politely.
Dreamtone & Génifique: Fighting Off Winter Skin Woes
When it comes to winter, as long as I can cozy up in a warm café to write, bundle up for a nice stroll in my favorite places or pamper myself at home while I wait for warmer weather...

This winter morning, the sun has come out to shine its bright gold rays on Paris. It’s a fitting forecast for a rendez-vous to welcome those of you who already know me to this radiant new corner of the Lancôme site, as well as to say 'enchantée' with an introduction for those just meeting me...
Just as it has in my own life, the city of Paris has played a unique role in the heritage of Lancôme and its art of capturing French elegance.
