I’m so excited and delighted that my book “My Solo Wedding in Santorini: or how I saved my life” is finally published!
For the moment only the English version is available: HERE
But don't worry, the French edition should follow in a few months, moreover for those who wish, I continue to raise funds to be able to realise this new version: LINK
And of course, I also prepare the Greek version.
Why Greek? This country and its people have welcomed me with such kindness and generosity since my solo wedding in Santorini, that for me it’s unthinkable not to have my book in this language.
Not to mention, I've been in the news a lot (check page MEDIA), including on TV, and a lot of people are waiting for the full version of my story! Check my article: TV Interview.
For all those who have been part of this adventure, of course, I wanted to thank you personally:

When I married myself 5 years ago after my fiancé left me, if you had told me that I was going to publish a book talking about it, I would have called you crazy!
And here we are!
I’m so moved by all the amazing and kind messages I’ve received these past few days.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everybody who was part of this incredible adventure.
Some of you follow me for years, since the creation of Blog About L. com
I’m so grateful for your love, support, and your loyalty.
This book was made of tears and sacrifices. I wanted to give up so many times. But you kept me going.
This is why when you go after your dream, it is so important to surround yourself with the right people. You have so many doubts and worries and fears during the process that you can’t afford to have unloving, judgemental energy around you.
During this journey, my relationships, my friendships changed, absolutely.
But most of all, I changed to be aligned with my purpose, my dream and this is how I’ve attracted incredible souls into my life.
This book, my story my Solo Wedding in Santorini is your story too!
Live your dream life!
And as I like to say “The best is yet to come…”
The goal now is for it to become a bestseller, and on the 2nd day of its publication, I woke up with the happy surprise of being 4th in the Amazon ranking in the wedding book category!
So don’t hesitate to share with your friends, family, on social media.
My success is also yours!
Here’s the description of the book:
“May 27, 2017, Santorini, Aegean Island (Greece). I am about to go down the magnificent stone stairs holding my father's arm, to participate in the wedding I have been waiting for, and preparing for a year and a half. The guests are seated. The weather is capricious. However, this ceremony is special, the groom is not here. He left the marital ship three months before, and I took the decision to marry without him, to marry myself!”
And thank you again for all your messages, it touches me so much.
Don't forget to order your copy and for eligible donors, your gift boxes are being prepared...
In the meantime, excerpts are available: HERE
Have a fantastic week everyone !
Love & Joy,
As I explained in my previous article Happy Me, beach & sea are my elements!
Besides, the places where I lived the longest were paradises for that: Indonesia, Morocco, Australia, Greece.
Unlike London or Madrid, where I only stayed a few months.
For the 3rd year in a row, I won’t be enjoying the beach, I need a distraction-free environment to be able to concentrate on my book “My Solo Wedding in Santorini”, which is soon to be released!
Dreams require making choices, and I admit that I see this only as a parenthesis in my life, because I intend to return to live near the ocean or the sea.
And then I’ve enjoyed a lot in recent years, I have no complaints, here is a summary of my favourite beaches!
(All photos are mine)
How not to talk about Santorini, my passion island, my lover, the one who witnessed the most important event of my life: My Solo Wedding in Santorini!!
Santorini and its black sand beaches – it’s a volcanic island - with a multitude of bars and restaurants lined up all along.
I even took my guests there the day after my wedding, catch of the day and idleness.
No surprise that I stayed there for several months for an improvised honeymoon!
Everything is unique on this enchanting island…
Feel free to read my articles:
All the articles about my Solo Wedding in Santorini: HERE.
In 2018, when I had just created my blog, I stayed in Crete for a long time.
I was writing and working for the blog in the morning from 7 a.m. to noon, then I was spending the afternoon at the beach or visiting, the boat often being an option!
I've shared a lot about this island, the largest in the Aegean Sea, a beautiful and heavenly place.
I loved living in Crete, the proof is, it's there that I wrote my book "My Solo Wedding in Santorini".
A great source of inspiration and serenity for me on this island…
Check out my previous posts:
The Pacific Ocean, with of course Australia! I lived there for 7 years, which gave me plenty of opportunities to visit.
I still have a lot to show you although I’ve already shared some incredible destinations:
Also Fiji, what an unforgettable memory, and definitely a place I’d love to return to.
But first on my list are Vanuatu, the Cook Islands and Hawaii!
California, I have not yet done an article on this and I should. Very beautiful beaches as far as the eye can see, and if everyone thinks of Baywatch, the beautiful lifeguards, and surfers, I must admit that the mounted police attracted my attention a lot!
Obviously, I rather tend to choose my destinations according to the beaches, hence:
Las Palmas (Canary Islands), Thailand, Vietnam, or even Madagascar, one of my most beautiful trips.
If I don't see the sea, I can still go to the magnificent lakes of my native region:
And especially at my birthday, I was offered a voucher for a luxury spa! The reservation is for August, I can't wait to go!!
Have a magnificent week!
Love & Joy,
Once again, I had an extraordinary birthday, and for the 2nd time in a row with my family, something extremely rare, since I usually travel or live on the other side of the planet, Crete or Australia for example.
But as you know I always celebrate myself properly, and here again I chose an incredible and magnificent place, in my native region, the French Alps, on the shores of Lac du Bourget, in Savoie (France).
Since my Solo Wedding in Santorini, my love for myself has allowed me to discover myself more and to be even more benevolent towards myself, but also towards others.
If I could talk to my 5-year-old self (my age in the photo below), there are many things I’d like to say to her, and among them the message below that I posted on my social media for my birthday, I'm sharing it here again:
Happy Birthday to me & to this little girl I was!
“You're going to become an amazing woman.
Don't be scared to pursue your dreams, you have what it takes.
You were born to shine being you!
Don't let society, your ego or anyone change you or choose your path.
Life is not going to be easy on you, but never lose your sense of wonder, your joy, your smile, and have fun every single day, even if it's just for a minute.
You are loved, you are safe and you are divinely protected.
I have your back now & forever!
Connect within you, listen to your soul, follow your heart.
Learn from your challenges, grow from the pain & bloom from adversity.
And miracles will happen… like a Solo Wedding in Santorini…
Happy Birthday my Love, I love you!!”
As a summer baby and a Cancer astrological sign, water is an element that regenerates me a lot. Besides, the previous photo of my childhood was taken in the south of France.
Being able to take time for me to be able to reconnect with myself and with nature is definitely something I learned to do in Australia. There, people are laid-back and love outdoor activities.
Slow down and enjoy life, the view, the people you love, let yourself be carried away by the lapping of the water and the chirping of birds, breathe physically and spiritually...
I’m convinced that having fun is one of the essential elements of my rejuvenation!
Yes, I said rejuvenation because everyone keeps telling me that I look younger and younger. Besides, I plan to write a specific article on this topic very soon!
As you know, for me all occasions are good to be happy and I rejoice in each day that passes, as much as the next day.
Read my previous articles:
So, do just like me, have fun every single day!!
Have a fantastic week!
Love & Joy,
