Welcome to Mademoiselle World

A blog about exploring the world through the eyes of a twenty-something French girl

Meet Flora: la mademoiselle behind the blog

Hi there, nice to e-meet you! I'm Flora, a twenty-something French girl living the British life. I recently left my home on the beautiful French Riviera after getting my university degree to move to Birmingham, England. I studied marketing & foreign languages for three years, and to be honest, now it's a little mess in my head: I always catch myself thinking in two languages at the same time... and sometimes I even forget words in my native language. But since I'm a Gemini - known for the dual aspect of its personality - I guess both French and English fit well in my head!

Oh and I write every post myself so if you see any mistakes, you're allowed to make fun of me. And then please point it out to me so I can fix it? ;)

What you will find on Mademoiselle World

Mademoiselle World launched in 2016 with the aim to show people that it was possible to travel while working or studying, and still having a home base. Finding and keeping a balanced life while discovering the world one adventure at a timeIf you're a wanderluster and love new experiences, foreign languages, city breaks, wellness and discovering beauty products from around the globe, then this is the right place for you!

Why the name Mademoiselle World? 

Mademoiselle is the French title equivalent to Miss (the abbreviation is Mlle - hence why on some social media platforms you'll find me as @mlleworld) but you can also translate it by 'lady'. For me, this word represents youth and freedom. And World, because I write about travel and this beautiful world in which we live in; but also about beauty, wellness, the random thoughts that go through my mind and everything I find fascinating about our world.
