MÉDUSE TALKS WITH… SLANELLE

20 Jan , 2016  

Slanelle1

Last week, we met They Call Me Mellie, a fashion blogger who is kooky about tip-top brunchs!

This week, we interview Slanelle, a mega star in the fashion and lifestyle world. Here she joins us to talk about her universe and what passions rocks her world.

M – Hello Slanelle! You’re a blogger that has been around on the net for quite some time. What kinda topics do you cover on your blog, and what are your interests?
S – Hi! On my blog, I mainly post outfits of the day and from time to time, I talk about beauty, travel (I love travelling all around the world!), and music, because I can sing and I can play the guitar.

02

 

M – No need to tell us that you love travelling – we can already see this on your blog! So, what are your favourite destinations to visit?
S – My favourite destination is Oslo, which I visited in 2014. I spent 4 days there, but I simply fell in love with the city. The people are lovely, life is great and you always feel like you’re safe there. I also love Rome, I’ve been there twice. Italy is really charming! This year, I’m going to Tokyo! It’s a place I’ve been dreaming about since I was a teenager! I think I’m gonna love it!

03

M – We listened to your song covers, and we LOVE them! When did you start singing and why did you take up this hobby?
S – In fact, I’ve liked singing ever since I was a child. I always broke into a trending song in the charts. At 17, I took up the guitar and I began to sing only with the guitar. Sometimes I can’t sing very well, but I always enjoy it!

01

M – We have a little challenge for you?! Could you chose your favourite pair of Méduse shoes and propose us a styleboard to kick off your style scene for 2016?
S – I think I would chose the sea-green or salmon pink Nikita, and I’d pair them with a white dress, like this!

Thanks a lot Slanelle for your answers! We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to join us! You’re a true star, and you know you can count on us to keep up to date with your world. You’d be silly to miss out on her blog – check out the style icon’s universe!

MÉDUSE TALKS WITH… THEY CALL ME MELLIE

13 Jan , 2016  

Theycallmemelliefeatured
Last week in the hot seat was Margaux, Instagramer of Hopelessly Loving! This week we speak to high-flying fashion blogger Amelia, of ‘They Call Me Mellie’.
She knows what’s hot on the scene in NYC and she knows what’s hip-happening in Paris. Meet fashion blogger Amelia, a girl who has lived the American Dream and knows what a brunch spread should look like.   

‘I love your Jumpleo boots, I find them so quirky and fun!’

2

M – Hello Mellie! You’re a fashion, lifestyle, travel and beauty blogger! Could you tell us a few words about yourself for those who don’t know you yet?
A – Hey Méduse, my name’s Amélia and I started my blog They Call Me Mellie this summer – a project I had in mind for a while. I was born in France but I grew up in Polynesia and in the USA, that’s why I have a Parisian style with an international touch. Travelling is part of me and my identity –  I’m passionate about anything from fashion, design, art and food – things which are a huge part of my travelling around the world. That’s my way of living – thriving on what’s around me!
4
M – San Francisco, Los Angeles… You’ve been living the American dream! What can you tell us about the fashion industry there? Are there any differences with French or European fashion?
A – Yes, I had the chance to live the American dream quite young. My mum is an ambitious woman and we moved there for her career. Styles are so different in USA! There aren’t many trends though. From a city to a state, styles change and so do the beauty standards. San Francisco’s fashion is modern, natural yet it has a hipster touch, whereas in LA, fashion standards are so different – far more about glamour and sexiness. In New York, styles are ever-changing and they are far closer to what we know in Europe, or at least in Paris. The Parisian style to me is the most sophisticated. I think what makes a difference in Paris is that women dress for themselves and for other women. In USA, I feel like a lot of women mostly dress for men.
1
M – Food time! You’re a brunch-addict and your pictures whet our appetite! So what’s the perfect brunch recipe?
A – I’m truly passionate about brunch, probably my American side again. To me, a moment for family and friends – growing up, my mum would invite my friends and their parents to our home for massive brunch. Surprisingly, I love to go for a brunch at restaurants, as I love to try new things and discover new flavours. A perfect brunch would be made a freshly squeezed orange juice or a fruit smoothie (kiwi, banana, strawberry), a latte, some savoury treats (omelette, scrambled, Eggs Benedict), some sweet treats (pancakes, waffles or French toast) and a small fruit salad. For a festive brunch, add a glass of champagne to celebrate!

M – As a professional fashionista, you have a true expertise in clothing that we are curious to challenge! Our new collection for rainy days has a range of styles, equestrian-chic, colourful and original patterns… Do have a favourite pair? Could you prepare a styleboard and tell us a few words about this style?
A – I have quite a preppy style – I love being elegant whilst remaining feminine. I love your Jumpleo boots, I find them so quirky and fun and I love the ‘animal’ print – plus they are not too showy! I’d add rolled up boyfriend jeans to show a bit of ankle, a leopard print handbag to match the chelsea boots and a kitty-cat hairband for fun!
 05Well Amelia, with all your wise words, we want to jet-set around the world just like you! Thank you ever so much for joining us! We love your unique style and we can definitely learn a thing or two about accessorizing just like you! Keep up to date with her blog and Instagram.

Méduse talks with… Hopelessly Loving

6 Jan , 2016  

Margaux is an instagram pro
Last year (yes, 2015 is gone!), we caught up with fashion and lifestyle blogger Parisienne Rose who loves nothing more than chic style and road trips. This week, we welcome Margaux, Instagramer of Hopelessly Loving.
She’s a lady who knows what to work in the winter season and she certainly knows how to cook some mean Nutella pancakes. Instagramer, Hopelessly Loving joins us today to share her ‘Nordic cocooning’ style and how to make Sunday mornings really special.

‘I’m wild about the Jumper boots with the glittery touch’

A pair of quirky socks! We. Love. It.

A pair of quirky socks! We. Love. It.

Méduse – Hopelessly.loving! We’re totally in love with your snapshots! Could you tell us in a few words about yourself? How did your Instagram journey begin?
Margaux – My name is Margaux, I’m 22 and I work in real estate. I’m addicted to shopping, snacking (luckily I don’t take ANY weight) and I’m passionate about animals. I’m the proud owner of a beagle and a cat. My Instagram journey started about 2 years ago. I created an account out of curiosity and at first I was a bit confused with the hashtags, but I quickly caught up and now I can’t get enough of it!
Outfit of the day!

Outfit of the day!

Méduse – Fashion time! In your opinion, what is the major trend for the autumn / winter season? Are there any particular tones that you’ll be rocking this season?
Margaux – I would say the biggest trend this year would have to be long coats. But that’s not for me as I’m pretty short but on other people, I love it! This winter, I’m all for a ‘Nordic cocooning’ mode. A puffa jacket, thick knitwear, UGG’s and I’m ready to face the cold!
Alpine outfit!

Méduse – You’re all for a good breakfast! Do you have a secret recipe to help us face the morning chill this season?
Margaux – I do love massive breakfasts, and as I don’t have much free time during the week, I make sure to do it properly on Sundays: nutella pancakes (top secret recipe from my grandma haha), hot chocolate, freshly squeezed orange juice and there you go!
The perfect breakfast!

The perfect breakfast!

Méduse – We love your daily outfits, and so we have a challenge for you! Our new collection is out now – so you’re mission is to create a styleboard with your fave pair!
Margaux – I love your new collection! I’m wild about the Jumper, with the glittery touch – it’s an awesome detail. I’ve chosen to pair it with this outfit: it’s simple and comfy – I love it!

Méduse talks with… Parisienne Rose

16 Dec , 2015  

Catch up with Rosyne on her blog and instagram
Last week we caught up with Marie Journet, a sporty fashionista with a taste for Méduse boots. This week in the hot seat is Parisienne Rose!
She’s a globe trotter who’s a nurse by day and a fashion blogger at night. Blogger Parisienne Rose joins us this week to reveal her favourite trends of the season and what’s the secrets behind a top road trip in America!

‘I’m falling for the Flamille wellies and the Jumpmat chelsea boots…’

M – You’re an Instagrammer, blogger and newly Parisian who reveals all about fashion, lifestyle and beauty! So… who’s Parisienne Rose?
R – Well, Parisienne Rose is simply a girl from Brittany named Rosyne who went to Paris for her studies and has worked there since September! I just got my degree in nursing and I’m currently working in an operating room. Quite different from my Instagram and my blog, you’re gonna tell me! Well, that’s my way to escape from work in my nurse uniform, I’m still a coquettish woman! I especially love fashion and beauty and I try my best to show it in my Instagram pictures – and now my blog as I feature tips and my fave picks!

M – Fashion time! According to you, what are the major trends of the Autumn / Winter season? Is there a style or particular tones you’ll be sporting?

R- The tones of Autumn / Winter are grey / plum and I also have a soft spot for pine tree green. Not to mention a festive touch with silver glitter! Thick knitwear is also one of my faves with cigarette trousers – it’s pretty much the perfect outfit with silver loafers (I’m thinking about the ones I fell for last week!).

M – You recently went on a road trip in the USA, how cool! Could you tell us a bit more about this great adventure?
R – Yes! It was a trip to celebrate my degree! It was awesome! What can I tell you about this country that I loved and where I’m considering settling in the future… Well, everything is disproportionate in the US yet people are all really nice and polite! Not like here in France… I discovered amazing landscapes and also super cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas! I found our planning for the trip was perfect. Some moments of escape in parks and then back to the cities – it was amazing! Every week on my blog, I post an article about a step in my journey. Make sure to stop by, this weekend – it’s Las Vegas!

M – Challenge time! The new collection is out now – so we challenge you to create a styleboard with your favourite pair!
R – I’m falling for the Flamille wellies and the Jumpmat chelsea boots in Caramel. With the high boots, I picture a pair of tights, my suede black skirt, a lace white top and a grey wooly cardigan. A simple outfit that can easily be worn on a party night. With the chelsea boots, I’m thinking slim black pants, my black and green checked shirt and my beige trench! A more laid back style, for a day to shop!

Méduse talks with… Les idées SoAddict

4 Nov , 2015  

Last week, you met Constance from The Clothes Paper, a lovely horse rider who’s passionate with fashion. This week’s Q&A is with none other than Sophie from, “Les Idées SoAddict”!
After a year rich in adventures, from venturing into beginning her own blog, a YouTube channel and meeting with fellow inspiring bloggers, Sophie’s journey keeps on going! Her motto? Be your own kind of beautiful, just like Marilyn Monroe!

I particularly like the JUMPZEBR. These boots make me wanna jump in puddles”

M – You’re a talented blogger & vlogger who loves all things fashion, beauty and DIY… Could you tell us a bit more about you?
S – My name’s Sophie and I’m 34 years old. I’m a fashion, beauty, DIY and lifestyle blogger since February 2014. I love to have fun with my looks by sporting contrasting styles (e.g. chic & cosy) and my own touch of originality (often in the red tones). I remain a child at heart and have fun when it comes to my style. Breaking fashion stereotypes amuses me, like wearing a skirt with sneakers.
Idées So Addict
M – In your DIY & beauty tutorials, you have more than one tip and trick in stock! Where are all these ideas coming from?
S – Before being a blogger I watched a lot of YouTube videos especially Sandrea26france. They really taught me basic beauty tips. Overtime, I came up with a universe that suits me, and ever since, many “addictive” ideas run through my mind which explains my nickname “So Addict” 😉

M – You’ve recently been invited to your first blogger party. We are curious to know, how it was? Do you consider it a reward or an achievement, for the time dedicated to your blog, your YouTube channel and to your fans?
S – I felt funny at my first blogger night, it was completely crazy! I’m where I am today thanks to Instagram, the platform We Are the Models, and my devoted readers. This invitation was a recognition of the work accomplished on my blog. I’ll never thank my readers enough for that and I do reward their loyalty. By the way, there are much more surprises to come. Stay tuned 😉

M – We have a challenge for you! The new collection Autumn – Winter 2015 / 2016 is out now! We would like to challenge you to create a styleboard with one of your fave pairs! Up for it?
S – I love challenges! I particularly like the JUMPZEBR. These boots make me wanna jump in puddles 😉 whilst still keeping the glam factor.  I’m definitely a child at heart haha!

We can just see it – you jumping about in puddles, but still looking effortlessly cool! Thanks you so much for joining us Sophie! Keep up to date with Sophie’s blog and Instagram for a very addictive world!

Méduse talks with… The Clothes Paper

28 Oct , 2015  

Last week, we quizzed Made in France follower Mamzelle H, who shared a taste of her creative mind and ventures. This week, we chat to Constance, blogger of The Clothes Paper!
 If she’s not riding horses in our FLAMBOY boots, she’s eyeing up her next accessory! Yes, joining us today is Constance, a creative, a beauty lover and DIY pro.

“My dream would be to go to New-Zealand!”

tresse-de-côté
M- What’s your favourite fashion accessory that you take with you wherever you go?  
C – My favourite accessory has to be my new Chloé bag, a second-hand purchase. I sold a lot of my clothes to get myself a kitty, and after three years I managed to buy this beauty for half the price – I only needed to throw in another £3!
t-shirt-coffee
M – You’re a true jet-setter! What destination did you like most?
C – Among the countries I’ve visited, my vote goes to Egypt. I’ll always remember the feeling of exploring the rooms in the Abou Simbel temple by myself… It was amazing! I was lucky enough to be there when there wasn’t that many tourists… Now my dream would be to go to New-Zealand!
bottes-marrons-et-noires
M – What are your three favourite songs at the moment which ALWAYS put you in a good mood?
C – The first one is a bit old but definitely one of my essentials. It’s All summer long by Kid Rock. It reminds me of ‘my youth’! Then I’d say Sugar by my beloved Maroon 5. Finally, something a bit more new, it’d have to be Cheerleader by OMI, that’s often played!

M – We have a challenge for you! The new collection Autumn – Winter 2015 / 2016 is out now! So we challenge you to create a styleboard with one of your fave pairs!
C – Here is my look, in Jumpleo: A Balsamik Trench coat, an umbrella from Lollipops, a pair of tights by Asos and a dress from Zara!

Not only does she have a sweet taste in tunes, her autumn fashion is on point! Thanks for joining us Constance! Keep up to date with her blog and Instagram, for more musings around Paris.

Méduse talks with… Mamzelle H

21 Oct , 2015  

Last week we caught up with DIY lover and foodie Mamzelle_ji who shared a mouth watering recipe and her style picks to match with our JUMPLEO boots! This week in the hot seat is Mamzelle Héloïse!

She stands proud to support the Made in France movement and she isn’t afraid to show the world what she’s got! Let us introduce fashion and lifestyle blogger from Bordeaux, Mamzelle Héloïse…
Mamzelle Heloise

I support French entrepreneurs and designers to support their recognition.”

M – Mamzelle H ! You’re a fashion and lifestyle blogger, what made you start blogging?
MH – The desire to share, interact, exchange… my friends encouraged me to go for it, and as a communication manager I thought it’d be fun to work for myself :-)
heloise
M – We’ve noticed that, like Méduse, you were a Made in France supporter. How does it influence your style ?
MH – The Made in France movement is something I deeply believe in – not just for consumption but the people behind it. I support French entrepreneurs and designers to support their recognition… To me, they have a true added value compared to ‘made in China.’ There are a lot of taxes in France and it’s hard to compete with the fashion industry giants, so I try as much as I can to promote these people. Eventually, I’m like everyone else and I shop at H&M, Zara… but my long term and frequent partners are only French brands.
made-in-france
M – De quelle série êtes vous totalement fan en ce moment ?
It’s not very original but I love The Walking Dead, Games of Thrones and Breaking Bad… besides these, I don’t watch TV that much so I don’t know many more.
blog-bordeaux
M – We have a challenge for you! The new collection is out now so we challenge you to create a styleboard with your fave pair!
lookboard blogueuse
Well that’s our plans for the weekend – hit the town in our FLAMBOY boots, and settle down with a good boxset! Thanks for joining us Mamzelle! Explore her Instagram and blog, for tips on fashion and Bordeaux lifestyle!

Méduse talks with… Mamzelle_ji

14 Oct , 2015  

Last week we caught up with Garazi Beloki, a talented dancer and model from Spain! This week, you’re about to enter the world of Mamzelle_ji – get ready for some awesome DIY tutorials, beauty tips and love of good food!
We discovered her sporting a pair of Méduse JUMPY, meet Mamzelle_ji and her amazing tutorials! DIY-master, her blog is packed with brilliant ideas and good advice. She tells us everything about food, beauty and her quirky world!

“Jumpleo and the Jumpard are my favourites”

 

Méduse – You’re behind the lovely blog Diy-mais-pas-que, what made you start blogging?

Mamzelle_ji – Thank you for the compliment! I’ve always been a fiddler, but it all really started off as a joke with my gals. I started thinking that my articles could be useful to people, moreover it gave me the opportunity to realize my Do-It-Yourself and cooking ideas.

 

 

Méduse – We love your Do-It-Yourself tutorials, where are all these great ideas coming from?
Mamzelle_ji – I’m trying to follow trends, whether it’s about decor, cooking or fashion, pretty much anything I’m into. Very often, my ideas come from the observation that most of the stuff you find online is not available in stores, or it’s way off budget, and if you want it done right, you’ve got to do it yourself… Most of the time I’m happy with the result, even if I have to admit sometimes there are failures!

 

 

Méduse – You’re a whizz in the kitchen! If you had to go for only one, what would be your favourite dish?
Mamzelle_ji – A fish curry with coconut milk! In a saucepan, sear a few tomato, red pepper and onion cubes. Add coconut milk, curry paste, ginger and pieces of fish. Stew it all for a while and enjoy it with rice noodles or white rice. I’d go for a raspberry cheesecake on a lemon shortbread base as dessert!  

 

 

Méduse – We have a challenge for you! The new collection is out now – so we challenge you to create a styleboard with your fave pair!
Mamzelle_ji – I fell for the Jumpleo and the Jumpard, I went for the Jumpard for my styleboard. A lovely khaki dress, a fitted beige trench for a chic and casual look, easy and perfect for a day in the office!

 

Thanks Mamzelle_ji! Your little recipe has whet our appetite! To discover more of Mamzelle_ji’s awesome tips and crafts, it’s on her blog Diy mais pas que!
