Hello lovelies! My name is Monique and right before my 18th birthday, I decided to move to Paris, France to study fashion marketing. This decision was actually very easy for me to make because throughout my whole life I have learned to adapt to new environments. I grew up in San Francisco but moved around between Los Angeles and Montreal throughout my teenage years. From public to private, religious to nonreligious, to French or English schools, I’ve learned to adjust to my new environments.
I am studying fashion marketing because from a young age I have always been obsessed with fashion. I was never very good in school, but I always had a keen eye for fashion. Most of my friends can solve math equations in seconds or name you the whole periodic table. Well, my talents are a little different. I can see a bag and tell you exactly who it’s
made by, open your closet and pair an outfit for you that you would’ve never imagined wearing and give you a brief history of almost every high-end designer. It’s not brain surgery, but it’s my talent and I love it.
Besides fashion, I really enjoy traveling, writing and videography. I like to consider myself a daredevil and a thrill seeker. From surfing and cliff jumping in Hawaii to clubbing in Barcelona to paddle boarding in Sicily, you name it and ill try it. I just love to travel and try new things! Most of the time if you see me, I will have my head buried in my journal. I am always jotting down memories in that thing. If I’m not traveling or writing, I am most likely taking videos for my youtube channel (Linked up above). I have always been a more visual person so my youtube is basically a representation of the inside of my mind.
Hello! My name is Katie Chaplin and I am 21 years old and currently living out my dreams by living in Paris, France in a charming Parisian apartment. I moved from Utah to France and it was such a major change! It was my first time ever abroad and now I have managed to visit 7 countries in Europe a ton of cities. The list will only grow from here as I continue to travel any chance I can! I came to Paris to study fashion marketing and I am currently in my second year.
To get a little insight on who I am and what I like to do, I used to do a lot of snowboarding and hiking back home in Utah but now that I live in Paris I have discovered other interests such as attending exhibitions, trying new cafes and running.
I am someone who wants to take every moment in life and enjoy it. I am an extremist when it comes to things I become interested in. Whether that’s going vegan, climbing peaks to snowboard down, or working out, I like to go all or nothing.
In my life, I want to create and build things with purpose and meaning and continue to grow myself personally and professionally. My dream is to continue traveling the world and learn as much as I can about anything and everything.
I love to share my life and travel experiences as well as keeping you guys up to date on all things fashion!
