We adore this Instagram mom, Magali, and her three darling kids. We love following their travels on @philou_et_les_bandits and getting tips on that je ne sais quoi French style we universally love.
Magali shares with us her favorite family activities, travel plans and, of course, kids’ fashion brands.
What I love about being a mother is watching my children grow up…
… opening up and becoming independent. I love when Philippine writes me sweet words filled with misspellings and then hides them under my pillow. I love when my twins compete over who gets to be cuddled. The love of children is so strong; it helps you overcome many challenges.
I love reading to my children
We all sit in a cozy place and watch and listen as the story unfolds. We don’t merely read a book — we invent a voice for each character, mime what is written and sing. We create theater from the story and everyone participates.
On weekends we absolutely need to go outside
I have 3 loud and exhausting children and we live in a flat. They need to run, scream, jump, climb trees… so on weekends we drive to the country and walk several hours. We picnic by small streams, walk in the forest and gather treasures.
We travel everywhere with our children
Côme and Augustin were born preterm and had serious health problems so the first three years with three children were very challenging. Today, they have grown up and we can finally travel again. We alternate cultural and leisure trips. We want them to discover the world, learn about new cultures and grow. Last spring we spent a week in Rome: we visited museums, historical monuments, and ate a lot of ice cream! Every summer, we fly to Ibiza and Minorca with the rest of my family. This winter we spent 12 days in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, a wonderful trip under the sun… Soon: Milan, Marrakech, Lisbon or Moscow. We haven’t chosen yet!
