‘ On Instagram (…) it is essential to share the things you like! ‘
This globe-trotting fashion hero joins us in this week’s interview! She’s got a zest for life, and she sure knows how to rock the world of Instagram. Have your pen and paper at the ready cause this gal reveals her tips on how to be a leader on social media, and how to be a summer-savvy fashionista!
A – Can you introduce yourself in a few words?
A – My name is Amélie and I am 22 years old. I grew up in France-Comté, a French region near Switzerland. Cancoillotte and Montbéliard sausage – does it sound familiar? 😉 I moved to Paris one year ago with my boyfriend, to complete my sport licence degree – I just graduated recently ! I am passionate about fashion, photography, cooking, travel and all the beautiful things in life!
M – On your Instagram we see a stylist, a cook, a photographer… so much energy ! What’s your secret?
A – I’d say passion. I’ve been very passionate about photography for a long time now! I never leave home without my reflex camera or my smartphone, and I really enjoy sharing all the nice things I do or see everyday with my followers, my family and my friends. It all looks like travel, but it’s just my everyday life!
M – We also had a look at your blog, and there is no doubt at Méduse… we LOVE your style! According to you, what’s the best outfit to wear this summer?
A – Thanks a lot, that’s very touching! I’d say my ideal summer outfit would be a plain white dress, light, with a pair of flat sandals, sunglasses, a beige panama hat and a little fringe handbag. Something nice and simple for a chilled walk along the beach.
M – Challenge! Can you make up THE summer outfit with our sea-green Nikita jelly shoes?
A – Challenge accepted!
M – You’ve posted more than 1,000 pictures and you’re followed by 6,000 followers on Instagram… To all the fashion bloggers – what’s your tip to rule on social media?
A – I’ve never thought about this before, but I guess what’s important is to be sincere with your followers. Showing who you really are. Sure it feels good to post beautiful, aesthetic photos, but above all, I think they should reflect yourself – this is pretty essential. The objective is to share the things you like!
Finally, you must be present. Have real interactions with your followers.
Thanks to Instagram, I’ve met beautiful characters, and when you have the chance to switch from the web to reality, it’s amazing. I hope you’ll meet great people too!
M – Last question! This summer, are you more: sunbather, globetrotter or nightclubber?
A – This summer, I’ll definitely be a globetrotter! I am planning a trip to the land of elks and maple syrup! My boyfriend and I will travel to Montréal for the whole month of August. We’re thinking about moving over there!
Well Amélie – we’re so JELLY that you’re jetting off to Canada, we wish we could come with you in your suitcase! Thanks so much for sharing your wise words with us! We sure will take on those tips to be a star on Instagram! 😉 Keep up to date with Amélie’s musings and moments on her Instagram and blog – she’s one to not miss out on!
See you next week!
