‘I would definitely take your Méduse Jumpy boots travelling anywhere’

A fashion blogger, curious spirit and globe trekker – Samantha has it all! Coming from all the way down under (Australia), this cool cat came to our attention when we spotted her original sense of style. Not only is she up for the #MeduseColor challenge, she’s also game for our interview! Check it out…  

M – So jelly lover, how would you introduce yourself in a few words?
S – My name is Samantha and I run my own Fashion/Travel Blog called Rapunzille. I’m Australian but I am always seeking my next adventure!
I use fashion as a way to express who I am and how I feel. I love to travel often to continuously throw myself into new situations. I find that it helps me grow as a person – especially my last trip to Canada for nearly 7 months!
I’m a Graphic Designer, so I’m infatuated with prints and colours! Which drew me to Méduse’s amazing collection of shoes! I associate colour with being happy and also the summertime! My two favourite things!

M – So we had a sneaky look at your blog (it’s too good!), and saw that you like to visit our beloved Paris! What makes you love the place so much? Is it the French culture? Fashion? Food? Or something else?
S – Oh my goodness! Paris is divine! The architecture makes me feel as though I’ve stepped into a fairytale. The fact that so many influential fashion designers are based in Paris makes me infatuated with the city! However, the food, the language and the lifestyle is far different than to what I’m used to! This excites me and makes me want to keep visiting Paris, and also explore the rest of France! At one point last year I was learning French, and I had so much fun doing it, but life got in the way. I do need to start practising again soon!

M – Your snapshots are shot in beautiful settings, such as Canada! If you were to have a photoshoot in our Jumpy boots (our take on the Chelsea boots), where would you go?
S – Thanks! Canada was beautiful ! I’ve done sooooo much travelling (more countries to be added to the blog soon) that I’m finally back in Australia and appreciate the amazing natural wonders that I have in my own country! I would definitely take your Méduse Jumpy boots travelling anywhere, they are so versatile and really jazz up the average fashion boot! I would climb rocks on the beautiful sandy Australian beaches with my Jumpy boots and go on adventures in the Blue Mountains etc! I would also definitely pack them for my next trip to Europe!

M – And finally! You’ve just submitted a superb photo for #MeduseColor contest – well done! What was the inspiration behind your outfit? Do you like to mix and match colour?
S – Thank you ! The inspiration behind it actually was that I got that dress in a little shop in Nice, France. I thought it would be perfect to enter a dress I bought in France for the competition! The patterns remind me of the detail on the architecture in Europe! The patterns on the dress, mixed with the red colour and brown and white bag, create a casual summer look that mixes up colours in a fun vibrant way !

“What I truly love and live for is fashion”

She is a fashion lover and a fierce and fabulous character! Steph from Singapore, brings with her style tips and a creative eye! Check it out!

M: Who are you Jelly lover?
S:  I’m Steph and I haul from Singapore! By day I’m a digital marketer, by night I’m a dancer; specialising the style of Waacking.
But what I truly love and live for is fashion! I love experimenting with styling. Currently I’m running a mini project called “365 ootd” where I aim to wear 365 different outfits! So that takes my creativity and innovation in styling to a new level. You can check them out by searching the tag #mianbaoootd. Through this mini project I hope to inspire more people to be creative with styling. You don’t have to buy new clothes all the time you know. :-)

M: CHALLENGE! We saw your blog article on tropical prints for this season ;-). Can you combine our SUN jellies and tropical print in a styleboard?!
 S – White-based tropical printed romper
    –  Yellow Méduse jelly sandals
    – Yellow bandana hairband
    – Tortoise-shell sunglasses
    – Navy nautical beach bag.

M: Name 3 things on your Bucket List.
S: 1) To explore the Amazon
     2) Go to Paris / Milan fashion week
     3) To attend either a Saint Laurent / Dior show.

M: Do you prefer to live by day or by night? Why?
S: Day of course! I love exploring places and I think that’s best done in the day isn’t it? (haha)
But I love the sunshine, even though I hate getting tanned and I feel the day is so much more vibrant!

So…we have an amazing styleboard, some top fashion tips and a must see Instagram profile ! Her blog and Twitter are pretty awesome too 😉  

What about you? What designer’s show would you like to attend? Comment here!
