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!

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!

3

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.

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… 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”

Brandy Melville Cardigan and hat and Primark dress

Camille wears a Brandy Melville cardigan and hat, with a Primark dress

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.
Brandy Melville tee-shirt and coat, Zara denim, Deena & Ozzy shoes and L’usine à lunettes sunglasses

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.
Brandy Melville jumper, Shein skirt, Rosegal & Brandy Melville bracelets, les partisanes watch and Pretty Wire necklace

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.

Read more about the fig tartlet recipe on Camille’s blog

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!
Lookboard with Asos, Urban outfiters, Méduse and Pimkie brands

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… 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… Brèves au féminin

30 Sep , 2015  

interview of french blogger breves au feminin V2
Last week we brought you an interview with fashionista Adeline, blogger of ‘Le Laboratoire Des Modes’! And this week, you’ve tuned into a quirky Q&A with Marion, Brèves au féminin!
Marion is a funky fashionista, with a lot to say! From her jet-setting travels, to her younger days with Méduse, Marion shares her special moments from the past to the present!

“When I was young and living by the seaside, I used to spend my afternoons rocking glitter Méduses!”

Countryside style

M – Brèves au féminin… What’s the story behind this lovely name?
B – When I started my blog in September 2014, deciding on a name wasn’t easy. I wanted something original, French and not too restrictive or I wouldn’t be able to talk about a wide range of topics. It’s my mum who actually had the idea « Brèves au Féminin », and I think it fits the blog’s spirit: a place where we can speak about anything – but with a focus on fashion and beauty.

Tunisian look

M – You’re a true jet-setter! What’s your favourite destination  you’ve visited?
B – Since I was a kid, I’ve been a globetrotter. I had the chance to discover many places, in France and abroad. I loved New York so much, but my best memory is a family road trip to Scotland. We went all over the country with our old Jaguar, visited several museums on the Scottish culture (kilts, whisky distilleries, Loch Ness…), discovered breath-taking landscapes in the Highlands, went to Edinburgh, Glasgow and we even slept in a “haunted” castle! I could spend hours telling you about our journey! If you have the chance to visit Scotland one day, go for it!

Clothes for Autumn and Winter

M – You’re now living in Nantes, next to where Méduse is from! What could you tell us about Nantes and fashion?
B – Nantes is such a dynamic city! There is always something to do (events, exhibition, festivals…). The city centre is populated with shops, both big names and independent designers. There’s plenty, for any taste and any style. And being (too much of) a shopaholic, is totally fine by me…

Summer style

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!
B – When I was young and living by the seaside, I used to spend my afternoons rocking glitter Méduses! No surprise that I’m all about the shimmering one: the « JUMPAIL ». I also, really love the JUMPAT, JUMPMAT and JUMPER they’re all boots that I could definitely welcome to my shoe collection. For my look, I’m picking simple items that can be accessorized with some eccentric pieces, to bring an original touch to the style. With these cute glittery boots, I’ve chosen a marine blue autumn dress, a burgundy hat and a matching bag. To make the outfit stand out even more, I’ve chosen a slightly oversized black coat and a pair of tights. It’s a seasonal style, that I could totally wear, even on rainy days… and with my feet dry! 😉

Lookboard boots méduse

Et voila! Thank you Marion for sharing a few words with us! We have to say – we’re now in the mood for shopping! Catch up with Marion’s latest happenings in fashion, lifestyle and travels on her blog Brèves au féminin!

Méduse in Nantes / City Guide

25 Sep , 2015  

Nolwenn C, l'autruche nantaise, the great elephant
In case you didn’t know, Nantes is home to an elephant. Not Nelly, not Elmer but The Great Elephant. It’s also home to two fabulous fashion bloggers who model our current Autumn / Winter collection, Nolwenn & L’Autruche. From kicking their Méduse soles in our Nantes photoshoot, today they share their favourite fashion pieces to wear in the hotspots of the city!

Nantes and the erdre


Where to Eat!
Looking for some fab food to munch on this weekend? For tastes that are out of this world, L’Autruche recommends Afghan restaurant L’Ariana and Indian foodie place Inde et Vous for some fantastic flavours! If you’re looking for something a little closer to home, why not make a visit to 180g? In L’Autruche’s words it’s the ‘perfect pizza’ place!
Feeling adventurous? Nolwenn suggests having a surprise 3 course meal at Les Chants d’Avril! That’s right – notice the word ‘surprise’; it’s a mystery restaurant where no one knows what they’re going to be dining on! Or, if you’re after something with a little extra, Don Peppe’s pizza house is the place to try – the chef’s uber-coolness is happy to let you try some of his tastes – for free!
Nantes European Green Capital
What to Wear!

When visiting Nantes, you’re free to work your own style! This season, L’Autruche has an eye on an oversized cardigan from Topshop, teamed with a bright hmong bag from Ethnic Lanna and spectacular specs by DKNY! We think these trendy pieces will go perfectly with our JUMPER boots!
styleboard autruche
Contrarily, Nolwenn thinks simplicity is the way to style up, in Nantes this autumn! Wearing tones of black, grey and white matches the chic atmosphere – all that’s needed is a swipe of red lipstick! We think a trip to downtown Nantes calls for a black embellished skirt by Reiss, paired with a simple white blouse from H&M and a grey backpack by ZARA! All that’s left are our sparkly JUMPAIL boots, to help you trot around the city!

Lookboard nolwenn

What to do!
From now till Tuesday 29th September, the Wave exhibition is in town with a range of fun free events! In an open air garage, you’ll have the opportunity to discover the craziest mopeds, live gigs, t-shirt printing, market stalls and plenty more! serigraphy, free market and micro-shops… you don’t want to miss all that !


And another thing! Today, all the locals will light up one of the Nantes machines – Kadi, the wicker giant! From 6:30pm in the heart of the Savèze Park, come down to enjoy live music and all kinds of activities! Plus – stay late to watch an explosion of fireworks, to end the night with a bang!

Nantes

And there you have it! Whether you’re down for shopping, dining or simply strolling the streets showing off your autumn fashion, Nantes is the place to hit this season! Now you have the tips from the experts, what are you waiting for? Hit the town!

Méduse Talks With… Samantha – Let’s travel around the world!

24 Jun , 2015  

Meduse featured image - Samantha

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

‘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!

Meduse - Samantha2

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 !

MeduseColor - samanthajay4

Well Samantha we hope you take us on your next trip! We can DEFINITELY fit in your suitcase… 😉 It’s been awesome chatting to you, thanks for the style tips and we’re always happy to meet jelly lovers from around the world! We wish you the best of luck for #MeduseColor! Take a look at Samantha’s inspiring Instagram and blog for tips on travel and fashion!

What about you guys? Where would you take your Jumpy boots if you were off on an adventure?

Méduse Talks… With Marie, of Synonym of Happiness

8 Apr , 2015  

150408_Facebook_itvMarie_Easter Hunt by Meduse

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

We search high. We search low. We’re always on the hunt to pick out the cool, quirky talents from around the world, and today we’re talking to a girl who lives all over the world! That’s right, she’s lived in Paris, our hometown Nantes and now Krakow in Poland! Today’s chat is with globe-trotter Marie, of blog Synonym of Happiness. Here we go!

So! Who are you jelly lover?

My name is Marie, I was born in Paris, but later moved to Nantes. I decided to leave France for Poland and I’ve been here for 4/5 years now! Krakow is an awesome place. You should come! My blog is about my travelling family of 3. I write about our adventures and travelling in general. I love to write! I actually told my husband yesterday “I write in English, speak in Polish, read in French and think with all languages! It confusing, ha!” But it describes me and my life well – I am a mix of everything.

Marie & Family Interview with Meduse

We know you love travelling all around the world! If you could take Méduse on an adventure, where you to take us?

The first answer would be… everywhere! But that’s not really helping, right? So here is my list: Mongolia, Japan, Laos, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Peru and Argentina!

Marie Travel Photos, Interview with Meduse

What are the few items that you need with you, when you’re on a journey?

Ahaha! Méduse? ;-)One time we were snorkelling in Egypt, when I saw a snake near my foot! Now, I always take my Méduse to the sea. Of course my luggage, a nice light backpack (it’s the best bag ever!) And my phone… a basic water, shock and dustproof phone.

Meduse in the sea with Marie

What’s the best surprise you discovered on your travels?
That I do not need a country to belong to. Wherever I go, that’s my home.

Marie Meduse Interview

We like to eat a lot of jelly during Easter (surprise, surprise!) What do you like to do during Easter?
Eat chocolate!! There is tartarska sauce in Poland, you eat it with eggs. I am totally crazy about this sauce!! Maybe we should go away for Easter? Praga, Czech Republic? 😉

 

CHALLENGE! We asked you earlier, where you would take Méduse on an adventure, so we’d like to see this come to life! What would Méduse look like in your chosen destination?

This year… my Méduse will be going to Croatia and Indonesia! And next year, we’ll be hitting Africa.
How will it look…? Well you’ll have to wait and see… 😉

Marie and her family, Meduse Interview

Ahhhhhhhhh… teasing, we hate teasing – we want to see your Méduse adventure now! But fine.. we’ll sit back and hold tight Marie ;-). Thank you very much for having a little chat with us, Marie! We know you’re busy globe trotting! You can check out Marie’s blog ‘Synonym of Happiness‘ and her Instagram here, to discover the sounds and sights from all over the world.

Au revoir for now!
