Fabuleuse Du Jour is about self discovery, creating your own happiness and finding the joy in every day.
I’ve always been a ‘bigger picture’ kind of person. I have an idea of how I want my future to look, know the woman I want to become. But there’s a way to go before I get there; work to be done, lessons to be learnt, fears to be faced.
What Is Fabuleuse Du Jour anyway?
Fabuleuse Du Jour is about finding the fabuleuse in every day. The French translation is literally ‘fabulous of the day’ (a bit like soup of the day).
It’s the thing that lights your fire, that gets you out of bed in the morning. It can be found in something as grand as your soul’s passion, or in the smaller details like the cup of coffee you drink every morning.
I started this blog because I wanted to celebrate the every day. At the beginning that was about fashion, but I now realise it’s something bigger. And I want to help you find your ‘fabuleuse’ too.
Finding My Fabuleuse
The truth is, I’ve always known what my ‘fabuleuse’ was, it was just a case of connecting the dots. Yours is within you too, it’s just a case of recognising it.
I’ve always loved playing dress up. Whether it was Barbie dolls, friends or my own outfits, I’ve always taken pride in my sense of style. Fashion has played a big part in my journey of self discovery. It’s been my way of stepping into the person I want to be, of playing with identity and expressing my creativity.
When I didn’t score my dream fashion job after uni, I felt like I’d been denied my chance to enjoy something I was passionate about every day. But somewhere along the way, something clicked.
I realised I didn’t have to work in fashion to enjoy it every day. Maybe I AM fashion (c’mon Miranda Priestly). Maybe every day I make sure I embody everything I love about fashion by turning out the most badass, head-to-toe look that makes me feel good.
So each and every morning, you can bet I stand in front of my wardrobe and make it my personal mission to pick out an outfit that would make my future self proud.
This is just one way I’ve found my ‘fabuleuse’. I discover new little joys every day, and I can’t wait to share them with you all along the way.
Finding your Fabuleuse
Being mindful of finding joy every day has been a real personal breakthrough for me, and now I want to help YOU find your fabuleuse too!
Everything I post on this blog comes from a place of love. I come here to share things that bring me joy, in the hope that they’ll do the same for others. In many ways, I’ve always been sharing my ‘fabuleuse’ with you, I just didn’t define it as such.
Everyone has their ‘fabuleuse’. Which is what has inspired me to launch a new feature called ‘Finding Your Fabuleuse’. In each edition I’ll be sitting down with influential and inspirational women to discover what their ‘fabuleuse’ is. From everyday rituals to overarching life missions, I want to inspire you to bring more ‘fabuleuse’ into your life! Keep an eye out for my first interview next week.
The world can be a dark place – that’s inescapable. I know how easy it can be to let that consume and overwhelm us, but by choosing to consciously align yourself with joy every day is something we can all do to bring a little more ‘fabuleuse’ to this planet.
