Take a Peek
December 01, 2011
The count down to Christmas has officially started. And here, we have kicked off the festive season with a beautiful Summer day -the very first one. Back in october, you may remember I made allusion to projects I was eager to share with you. Today, I'm happy to tell them to you.
I've contributed to New Zealand magazine Taste. Currently on sale, the latest issue includes a Christmas table I've styled and photographed. For local readers, hope you'll enjoy what you see and read !
And I've also been working for months on the making of an online portfolio, now launched. Please have a look.
<p style="text-align:justify;">I would like to thank my dear Paprika for his invaluable work to make the website alive; my sister Sandrine for her constant support; Vanya Insull, Art director of Taste magazine, for her trust; and last but not least, You who have given me strength and faith with your good vibe and feedbacks. Thank you.</p>

Le compte à rebours pour Noël a officiellement démarré. Et ici, nous marquons le début de cette saison festive avec une belle journée d'été -la toute première.
Retour au mois d'octobre, vous vous souvenez peut-être, j'avais fait allusion à des projets que j'avais hâte de partager avec vous. Aujourd'hui, je suis contente de pouvoir vous en parler.
J'ai contribué au magazine Néo-Zélandais Taste. En vente actuellement, la dernière parution inclut la table de Noël que j'ai stylisé et photographié. Pour les lecteurs locaux, j'espère que vous apprécierez ce que vous y verrez et lirez!
J'ai également travaillé pendant des mois, à la création d'un portfolio, en ligne à présent. Allez jeter un coup d'œil.
<p style="text-align:justify;">Un merci tout spécial à mon cher Paprika pour son précieux travail pour la mise en forme du site; ma soeur Sandrine pour son soutien constant; Vanya Insull, Directeur Artistique de Taste, pour sa confiance; et Vous, pour m’avoir donné force et foi avec vos retours et bonnes ondes. Merci.</p>
