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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Marie is a french instagram star from Montpellier
Last week we got together with young, wild and care-free fashion blogger Camille of As Wildchild! This week, it’s all about Marie Journet
Her Instagram is a breath of fresh air, and she certainly knows how to style up for the season. Catching up with us this week is Marie Journet, a sporty, fashionista who has a taste for Méduse boots.

“I’m the proud owner of a pair of Méduse boots!”

M – Hey there Marie! On your awe-inspiring Instagram, you show us snapshots of your daily life. Could you tell us a bit more about yourself, and how your journey on Instagram started?
MJ – Hi Team Méduse, thank you so much! My name is Marie, I’m 18, and I come from Montpellier in southern France. I got started with Instagram about 2 years ago, and at first, I was just posting landscapes, travel pictures etc… then came to me the idea of posting pictures about my everyday life and since then, it’s grown to be what it is today!
A breakfast full of vitamins!

The way to start the day.

M – With the chilly cold weather in the air, we’re wrapping up for the winter! What are your favourite styles for the season? Are there any tones you’ll be rocking?
MJ – In terms of winter fashion, I’m opting for warm wooly jumpers… I love them! As I’m a huge fan of skirts and shorts, I can’t live without them, so I’ll be teaming them up with tights. And as for tones I’ll be wearing this season, I’m loving grey, blue and burgundy.

M – You’re an athlete with bundles of energy! Do you have any tips and tricks to stay in shape this winter?
MJ – To stay in good shape this winter, the key word is motivation! It’s freezing outside and you’re gonna need an extra dose of it to go out for a run or hit the gym. The most important thing though is to have FUN and not push yourself!

Out for a run… what a view!

M – We have a fashion challenge for you! You’re the proud owner of a pair of Jumpy boots. Could you mock up a styleboard with your pair?

Méduse talks with… As Wildchild

2 Dec , 2015  

Camille is a fashion, food and lifestyle blogger
Last week we caught up with fashionista and food Emma, and this week we’re talking to a blogger of similar tastes – ‘As Wildchild’.
Catch her cooking up a storm or find her being in touch with her Zen. Camille is a fashion, lifestyle and food blogger who lives the care-free life, and loves nothing more than being ‘Gipsy & Wild’.

“I think THE piece this winter is the suede or denim skirt”

M – You’re a blogger who never stops writing about fashion, food & lifestyle, among other great topics!. With ‘Be Gipsy & Wild’ as your motto, we’d love to know, what is the meaning behind the name?
C – Haha so let me begin with ‘Wild’ simply because this word echoes freedom to me, the idea of not caring too much about things and letting the flow of the wind carry me. It also relates to nature, which I love. I’m not waiting for things to happen in my life, I just follow my heart and go. And ‘Gipsy’ because I love the folk and the travelling feeling of the word… it creates an atmosphere that I really love. It also has a sense of authenticity and freedom (I’m a traveller in the soul). I don’t follow codes and I hate to be labelled… to me it’s a word with a wide meaning. Beyond their definition, they have different connotations to people and that’s what I like, they don’t label me.

Once again, Camille rocks a Brandy Melville t-shirt and coat, Zara denim jeans, Deena & Ozzy shoes and L’usine à Lunettes sunglasses

M – A fashion Q! We’ve noticed you especially love vintage, boho-chic outfits. In your opinion, what will be the major trend this winter? Is there any particular tone you’ll be rocking?
C – 70’s are making their comeback but it’s not the style I identify the most to… Camel, ochre, mustard, burgundy and pine tones are huge this season but they don’t really suit me! I’m more into grey, navy blues, white, beige… etc ^^
I think THE piece this winter is a suede or denim skirt, with a line of buttons in front.  I also have a soft spot for polo necks.

M – You’re a total foodie, and your blog is full of tasty treats! What is the kookiest dish or ingredient you’ve come across in the culinary world?
C – I think the ‘kookiest’ ingredient I’ve used were lotus roots for a culinary challenge. I recently had  the chance to have dinner at the U’ni restaurant in Nantes where I explored surprising, yet and delicious flavours.

M – Time for a challenge! The new Méduse collection for rainy days is out now! With your favourite pair, we challenge you to create a styleboard with your very own touch!

Camille’s styleboard features Méduse Flamille boots, Asos tunic and denim gilet, Pimkie hat and Urban Outfitters clutch

Thank you Camille, for joining us this week! We’ll definitely take note of the trends you have your eye on this season! Stay up to date with her latest happenings on her blog and Instagram.

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.”

 

samantha walden
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!
woodland cakes
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… 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!
