La Femme London is a Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle blog edited by myself, Natalie Courtois (pronounced coo-twar), a journalist, Stylist, Influencer and Londoner.
I’m a self confessed Shopaholic and beauty junkie, and having graduated with a BA HONS Degree in Fashion & Dress History am naturally drawn to heritage & luxury brands as well as brands with an interesting story to tell.
Having worked for over 15 years in fashion retail, I made the change to journalist after graduating. My time is now split between my freelance work for printed publications such as Sussex Style & Hampshire Style (where I am Fashion & Beauty Editor) and my blog, which follows my professional life as well as documenting my own personal sartorial style, which I’d describe as maximal and feminine. It’s what I like to call ‘Pretty but Witty’.
I’m passionate about promoting British designers and brands (Christopher Kane is my fav) and love to mix investment designer pieces with vintage and high street. When it comes to make up, like my fashion, I favour bold looks and as I am 35, look for high performing skincare to aid the pausing, if not the turning back of, the clock.
I spend my time fitting in as much travel as possible and live in London with my four children, Ivy (10) Coco-Sailor (6) Wilder-McQueen (5) and Step-Daughter India (13).
