Meeting with Juliette Katz
Taking care of yourself on the inside to shine on the outside, what if this was the secret to happiness?
Using good cosmetic products to have beautiful skin is good. Putting a positive spin on it is even better. Taking care of yourselfis not only about putting on a cream to reduce your dark circles or using a serum to tighten your dilated pores. It's also about highlighting areas of clarity on your face or feeling the softness of your skin under your fingers. Feeling beautiful and well in your body or in your skin is to like yourself as a whole and to appreciate why you do what you do every day.
Opting for a healthy diet, practicing a regular sport activity, having a responsible and sustainable lifestyle, respecting nature and especially yourself, will perhaps be the keys that will tick the boxes towards your inner and outer well-being. We met Juliette, who tells us today about her daily habits that make her feel good. Juliette, better known as " Coucou les girls " on her Instagram account and YouTube channel, singer, actress and model, inspires positivity, wellness and self-love with self-deprecating, humorous content that feels good to the heart and body!
What we like about Juliette is that she is without fuss! Her job, her daily life, her life as a young mother, her couple, she shares her life without filter and with a lot of humor and love... Simply life!
Hello Juliette, how are you ?
I am fine, thank you.
Your morning and evening routine? Your beauty secret?
I have a morning routine that is not dreamy, but true: my son coming into bed to give me a big hug (or rather, walk on me) and my lover watching. A small coffee with oat milk for 10 minutes in the quiet. I continue with my son: breakfast and games. When he leaves for daycare, I put a spritz of hydrolat on my face for a freshness/to wake me up and also for the benefits and I follow with my face routine: serum cream eye contour and spf. In the evening, I clean my face, shower and use the same products as in the morning (or almost) and go watch a series in bed!
How do you like to take care of yourself?
Honestly, it depends on the day and the period. Sometimes I forget myself completely (especially when my son is at home) but otherwise I like to do masks, put tons of creams on my body, eat well and work out (When I think about it... That is to say not often!) I like to go get my nails done, and get a massage once a month (my little luxury since I became a mom).
What sport/activity makes you feel good?
The Aqua Bike at Aqua By ! I haven't been there in a few months but; it's my goal for the fall: to go twice a week. It's hard, but I love the feeling once the session is over.
The look you feel good in?
Honestly? In my pajamas! At least in "home clothes", I am super comfortable. When I decide to dress up a bit, I love to wear jumpsuits. Especially those from Almé.
A comforting meal? Who cooks at home?
A ramen or anything similar to Japanese food (not the sushi we have in France). It's my keum who mainly cooks.
A recipe to share?
Simple and so good: freshly cut watermelon, a little mint and grilled halloumi, it's a treat!
What is the thing that makes you happiest?
It's not a thing but rather a person: my son. I know it's nian nian, but it's that he brings me so much love (there's my boyfriend too, I have to say it otherwise I'll get yelled at).
A music that makes you feel good?
The whole album of Silk Sonic.
The mantra that means the most to you?
I don't have a mantra as such. I trust my intuition.
Your anti-depression remedy?
My son and my boyfriend.
The object/decorative element that makes you feel good at home?
My bed. I slept for a long time on a really bad mattress that hurt my back, so I never went there (except for sleeping badly). Now that we have a mattress that is much too good, I admit that I spend (a lot of) time there (working, crying, meditating...).
You juggle your job and your life as a mom. How do you keep your balance despite your obligations?
It took me a real time to adapt and accept this new life. After 6 months, I found my balance. Our balance. When my son is in daycare (twice a week), that's when I work the most. Even if my bed calls me to chill, I force myself to work as much as possible to have time available for my child when he is at home. My boyfriend and I are lucky enough to work from home, so we take turns when a work emergency comes up. It's not easy every day, but we manage!
If you had to talk to the Juliette of 10 years ago, what would you say to her?
To believe in herself and to stop giving so much importance to the words of others. To trust herself more and to be bold.
