FOUR DAYS IN PARIS: DAY 2

(Read about Day 1 here)

Our second day in Paris started with a quick stop for tea at a cozy crafts shop along Rue Deguerry called Klin D’oeil. Everything in that place was so pretty, I just clicked away on my camera.

One part of the shop was transformed into a Dove gallery so we could look at some products offered exclusively in other countries.

You KNOW there's nothing in that mug. Hahaha I was assigned an "I HEART NEW YORK" mug so I thought I'd grab this one for photos.😂

Then we all went to lunch down the street at a lovely restaurant called Tannat.

We split up into smaller groups and ours walked back to Klin D’oeil for a briefing with Dove Global’s VP, Sophie Galvani. She reminded us what Dove is all about. She showed us some campaign videos from the past and although I’d seen some of them in the past, it still struck a chord with me. I got a little emotional and I want to share these empowering videos with you in case you haven’t seen them yet. Get your tissues ready, girls.

Not a lot of women believe themselves to be beautiful.

Dove’s social mission is to ensure that the next generation grows up with a positive relationship with the way they look and help them reach their full potential.

When they choose women to be part of their campaigns, they choose women who have beautiful personalities emenating from within.

Your Hair, Your Choice

Okay, wipe away those tears of joy. Do you feel more beautiful now? I really do hope so!!💙

Dove is not just all talk. They have a self-esteem progam that has 20 million young people reached across 138 countries. They’ve been educating children about self-esteem since 2004 and I think that’s very important especially in today’s digital world where we keep comparing ourselves to everyone we see on Instagram. I’m just very proud to be an ambassador for such an amazing brand.

To further their point about being unique, we made some DIY pins for ourselves! We were taught by Helene and Julien of heju.fr – pls check out their DIY blog UGH IT’S SO PRETTY.

Afterwards, we went to a couple of jewelry designers to get some personalized pieces!

First stop was Alice Hubert’s shop.

It was really inspiring to hear her talk about her humble beginnings. It was as if she was born to do this.

It was the highlight of my 2nd day because I really bonded with the rest of the girls that night! It was so fun talking about our own countries and all the silly things from back home.
