Julie comes to us despite her crazy schedule mentoring start-ups and running her own, A Pour Toi. Julie is the epitome of French chic- understated, beautiful and well, a je ne sais quoi attitude that is so elegant you can consume it. Alright, let me explain-A Pour Toi, Julie's e-commerce business sends the perfect gift baskets designed based on monthly themes. Not only is the packaging timeless, the sweets are utter deliciousness. Luckily, she gave us a moment and we were able to delve into her lovely, French world.
1. What's your motto?
"I care with elegance" This is my personal motto as much as it is the motto of A Pour Toi. I apply this to my everyday life and to the nature of the relationships I love.
2. 3 Beauty Trends you are looking forward to this Spring.
Well, as a Parisienne, I follow and trust the likes of French brands and artists. So with that in mind, pastels: Tender&Fresh. They are great for both the spirit and the body! I adore light blue, jade and rose. Secondly, massages: Although this may not seem like a trend, I am always searching for new techniques. From Asian methods to Swedish, they are constantly changing!
And lastly, after having moved to LA I am looking for revolutionary juice cleanses and organic cremes to diversify my collection and promote wellness. Inner beauty is an immediate translation of what's happening on the outside.
3. What's your go-to outfit?
I like an outfit that will easily transition from day to night. Skinny dark jeans, a lovely white blouse, black jacket, a pair of my favorite heels and elegant earrings.
4. What are some of the most exciting things about starting your own business?
Meeting great people with which to share your story. The telling of your story then becomes means by which people inspire you, love and admire your brand. It's a journey and a fabulous experience.
5. What do you miss most about France?
My friends. French relationships are much different. Oh, and a fresh baguette with butter, of course!
6. Why do you love your shape?
Oh well..because my loved ones make me feel sexy!
