Hi, welcome to my website ! 👋🏼
My name's Laure. I live in the very enjoyable and sunny South of France. I created this blog because there are lots of beautiful things I'd love to share here. If you ended up visiting this page, I'm guessing it's probably because you wish to know me better (Sherlock's level deducting skills)— so, here it goes !
Studies & Professional Background
Studying abroad in the USA 🎓
One thing that significantly impacted my life was to study abroad. As soon as I graduated from high school in France, I flew to the United-States and did an extra senior year over there. This was such an amazing experience, I actually had a hard time "coming back". When one of your biggest dream comes true — of course, it's wonderful — it's also challenging to find what comes after.
Studying special effects and animation 🎬
Coming home, and somehow "back to reality", I still had to decide what I wanted to study. My passion for the wondrous world of entertainment led me to study in a school of visual effects, animation and video games. For four years I was taught how to make beautiful images and develop my creativity, and in the process I also discovered that I really enjoy building projects and lead teams.
Working as Production Manager 🗂️
A few days after I finished school, I was offered a real nice job as Production Manager for a documentary series about key moments in History. It truly was a rewarding experience, and helped me develop organizational & leading skills. But more importantly, I got to meet the coolest and nicest people, some of which became my closest friends.
What's next ? 🔮
I've been very lucky to have lived amazing and unforgettable experiences. Today, I want to keep exploring new horizons and filling my life with beautiful memories. This blog is definitely helping me writing the next chapters of my life, and I sincerely hope they'll turn out to be even more epic than the ones I've written so far.
Mind, Body & Soul
"Forget everything that you think you know"
I don't mind deconstructing an idea that I had about something in order to be better educated. I'm open-minded, perceptive, and I really enjoy learning new things. Sometimes, it's a little overwhelming, because I feel like I want to learn a thousand things at the same time, and I admit I'm not the most patient person out there. Right now, I'm obsessed about learning new languages and travel the world. I also want to learn dancing, sewing, and web development. Hopefully you'll see how all of this goes in the upcoming posts. Fighting ! 💪🏼
Tofu noodle soup, with kombucha on the side
In my twenties, after yet another polemic around meat consumption, I became vegetarian. About 4 years after I took this decision, I went full vegan, pretty much overnight. At that time I wasn't actually familiar with the term or what it meant, I just decided I wanted to stop consuming animal product. I simply couldn't bear anymore to contribute harming animals in any way. It's one of the best decision I made, and it was a trigger to question myself about what I choose to consume in general. I think I'll dedicate a whole article about this shortly. Today, I feel good about what I eat, and I love discovering tasty vegan food, it brings me a lot of joy and comfort. Besides that, I try to take care of my body by working out at home. I'm into swimming, cycling, and trekking. Sports make me feel physically good and help me become more confident.
"After all this time ? Always... "
I'm a total nerd. Not a day goes by without me quoting Harry Potter, Back to the Future, or a Marvel MCU movie. My brain really enjoys being entertained with cool stories and heroes from different fictional universes, whether they're from books, comics, illustrations, video games, movies, or series. Listening to music is also something I do on a daily basis. I listen to a lot of different artists, but what I'd say I like the most are soundtracks from movies, series and video games (you probably saw that one coming), good ol' rock classics, pop music, and k-pop.
