Welcome to A girl’s sillage blog

First of all, thank you for taking your time to read this post and welcome to my blog!

I have always wanted to create a blog, but I did not have the time. However, since I had to quit my part-time job due to the high workload of my studies, I decided to give it a try, so I set up my WordPress site. Developing the website did not take me long, but choosing the name took me a couple of weeks.

“A girl’s sillage” was the final result.

The word “sillage” has a French origin which literally means wake or trail. According to the Oxford dictionary, sillage (n) is “the degree to which a perfume’s fragrance lingers in the air when worn”. This concept fitted perfectly in the idea I had for my blog.

I wanted something original and suitable for different topics such as fashion, lifestyle, beauty, travels, etc. However, “a girl’s sillage” is a place where I share the things I am passionate about, but also:

Feelings
Thoughts
Experiences
Discoveries
