Leia, you just became a mom for the second time, do you find anything different this time? Or are you planning things differently for this second baby?

With my second child everything has been smoother, I did not have the same fears and doubts I had with my older daughter. My husband and I work together as a team which makes it easier for me to manage everything and helps run things smoothly in the family.

What do you like the most about being a mother? 

The fact of receiving and giving unconditional love.

How do you manage to balance motherhood with your full time work, your couple and friends? Is there any secret or rule?

Its all about: organization!

How did pregnancy affect in your style?

For the first five months, it is still fun to get dressed and I could still fit in some of my clothes but for the last four months it was not as easy and it was a shit show! Other than jeans, I have never dressed in maternity clothes, I hate them! The patterns aren’t well cut and it seams like the designers always need to add elastics. For that reason, I continued shopping at my favorite shops but I would get two larger sizes. My usual look during in the early months of pregnancy was loose tops and pencil skirts and later on leggings and chunky sweaters, which was definitely not what I define sexy.

You were a photographer and you suddenly created Diapers & Milk, a successful brand for kids. Tell us a bit about this change in your life. 

I started Diapers and Milk as a side project and a hobby, I didn’t have any expectations of success. The business has grown fast in a very short term and at the moment, I found myself working full time on the brand. Which make me super happy!

What is your favorite plan to do with India and Leeo in Paris? And do you have any vacation place you recommend child friendly ?

We love walking around Paris and going for long strolls in the Tuileries and Luxembourg Gardens and it feels so good! It’s all a about the simple things and taking time off.
We spend our holidays in our little paradise, our summer house in Noirmoutier-en-l’Ile located in western France.

What does your JOSEFINA bag contains?

It contains so much! I carry the essentials for my baby Leeo, comforters, pacifier, diapers, creams, diapers… And India’s toys, my older one loves to sneak in her little dolls.

Do you have an inspiring mum?

My mother is my inspiration! She has been married for 25 years with three kids. She has always been there for us despite her crazy full time job that took so much of her energy.
