Our Story

Back in 2013….

By a cold morning of May, I was ready to defend my doctoral thesis in front of 5 jurors & got my PhD in Criminology with Honors.

Even if those four years of sacrifices, hard work, dedication & commitment were done, a weird feeling slowly took over.

I was standing there in the middle of my peers but, all I can recall was that huge void inside my chest and my stomach.

I felt empty, drained, anxious… I had no « what’s next? » plan in place. The logical road was to find a lecturer position… but I didn’t fit in.

Obviously, there were something wrong about me

I started reading all the books.

I registered and attended dozens or hundreds seminars/ workshops/ tele classes.

I made all the work & tested all the woo woo trendy approaches.

Everyone figured it out, why not me?

The void was getting bigger & bigger.

I couldn’t keep up like that for ages.

I could barely keep my head above the water.

When all the pieces fell together

I was switching from The Little Book of Hygge & my Great Grand Mother’s journals that night.

Time Out was rerunning on TV: fighting for Time as our most valuable resource made me cry for hours.

When I woke up the next morning, I knew what I was meant to do

⚠️ (the whole story is damn cute but too long to explain everything in two paragraphs. I owe more respect to my Great Grand Mother) ⚠️

I designed The Hygge Planner, a simple method to unzip comfort zone & craft a cosiness-based way of life to feel cosy, comfy, & unapologetically yourself.

Since 2017
The Hygge Planner has gathered a worldwide community of 10k+ members (& growing every day).

I’m proud to help women who experienced midlife crisis to connect the dots between knowing what to do &, finally, having the tools, the resources, and the confidence to follow through.

When you rely on your comfort zone AND you implement a cosiness-based way of life, you’re building an unstoppable happiness for you & your family.


You rediscover

– the joy of simple pleasures,

– you take the time to live,

– you unplug for device,

– you enjoy the seasons as they are,

– and you build a legacy by sharing memories with your loved ones.


I’m on a mission to debunk myths & misconceptions around comfort zone so you can rock yours & become the role model you deserve.


For every purchase you make in The Hygge Planner shop, we’re *donating 3% of our yearly earnings* to charities & non-profit to support causes like preserving wildlife to planting trees.


The Hygge Planner helps you craft the lifestyle you love & keep it up day in & day out.


When you got The Hygge Planner by your side, you’re one step closer to happiness.
