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… Emma’s Looking Glass

25 Nov , 2015  

Interview Emma's Looking glass
Last time, we got close with fashion & beauty pro Les idées SoAddict, this week it’s all about Emma’s Looking Glass.

Through chronic illness, Emma decided to set up a blog, so that she had a platform to share her passions, including details of her own style, tasty treats, intricate illustrations and more with the world.

“For Autumn I love mustard yellows, sage green and burgundy colours, it makes me happy to see them on trend this year.”

M – Emma! So we’ve spotted that not only are you a fashion & lifestyle blogger, but you’re also an artist, photographer – and cat lover! Could you tell us a bit more about yourself, your projects and your blog?  
E – I’ve always been really creative and I trained at the London college of fashion back in 2009 before becoming chronically ill. I have two long term illnesses, ME/CFS and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, both have had a dramatic effect on all aspects of my life. It was hard to come to terms with a much slower pace of life at such a young age and left me feeling like I had lost my identity. I wasn’t really aware of blogging until my friend from uni suggested I started a blog, I always enjoyed modelling her creations when we were studying, so the idea of sharing my outfits seemed like a fun idea. A few years on and I don’t know where I would be without my own creative space online, Emma’s Looking Glass has really helped me to engaged with the outside world as well as allowing me to be creative when my body allows it. It’s also helped me maintain and improve my photography skills. I hope one day to be well enough to own an online shop to sell my own illustrations and photography prints. That’s the dream! But for now I focus my energy on smaller projects, earlier this year I created 8 personalised illustrations which I sold with all profits going towards a fund raiser for ME Research Uk, I also dressed up as a princess for a day – which I blogged as an outfit and was a lot of fun too! Both projects combined raised £1189.04 for charity which I’m very proud of.

M – We’ve noticed you’re flaunting many floral prints, yet you’re loving autumn on your Instagram! What styles will you be wearing this season? Are there any particular shades that you think fit the season?
E – I do love a good floral print but sometimes I just want to step away from them, on those days I pick stripes. I have at least 10 striped tops. I think it’s becoming a bit of an issue! For Autumn I love mustard yellows, sage green and burgundy colours, it makes me happy to see them on trend this year.

M – You’re a foodie with many quirky recipes in stock! Which treats are you addicted to at the moment?
E – I have a really sweet tooth, I’d be happy to eat cake everyday, all day if I could. I also love salt and a silver lining of having Chronic illnesses is that my cardiologist recommends lots of salt! At the moment I’ve been enjoying some amazing homemade sea salted fudge that my best friend bought back for me from a trip to Cornwall a few weeks ago. It’s a great treat that I can’t leave alone!

M – Challenge time! With autumn well and truly here, our Jumpy boots are hot on the scene. Thus we challenge you to mock up a styleboard using a pair from our Jumpy boot collection! How would you pair it with accessories and clothes? Up for the challenge? 😉
E – I loved picking out an outfit for this challenge! I’m currently obsessed with this Mod Dolly acorn shirt and I think pinafore dresses are so sweet and versatile this time of year.  I’ve picked out the tan buckle detailing to the Méduse boots and used that as a base colour for the coat and bag which I think would tie the look in nicely. I hope you like it!

Thank you so much for your time Emma, we agree that dressing as a princess for the day should be a standard! Keep in touch with Emma’s crafts, recipes and outfits on her blog & amazing Instagram!

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!

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!
