FAQ

🔮

Over the years, I got a lot of emails and comments asking me questions about various random things. I decided it was finally time to put the answers in one place. So here goes nothing…

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments below ๐Ÿ™‚

What type of camera / lens do you use?

I use a few different cameras, but the ones I use the most are my Olympus Pen EPL7ย (with 45mm and 17mm lens) and my Sony a7ย (with 50mm lens).

Have a look at my review of the Olympus Pen EP-5 and also at my photography portfolio to see samples.

Where does the name Mademoiselle Robot come from?

When I still lived in Paris I used to DJ at indie clubs and I needed to come up with a super cool DJ name and Mademoiselle Robot was the first thing I thought of, being a Mademoiselle at the time and also a sci-fi / gaming obsessed human being. It sort of stuck after that and I started using it for online stuff too… I like that it has nothing at all to do with fashion and/or lifestyle. It gives me freedom.

What are your favourite spots in Paris?

You can see my Paris City Guide for this.

What are you favourite spots in London?

I have a London City Guide coming soon, but you will find some of my favourite restaurants and hotels in London in the “food” and”hotel reviews” sections of the blog.

What are your favourite spots in Los Angeles?

You can see them all in my Los Angeles City Guide.

What beauty products do you use every day?

I wrote a few posts about this in the “beauty” section because I am a sucker for a quick and easy beauty routine. The most recent post about it is this one, but you can also refer to this one for some favourite products. ย A word of warning: I am pretty fickle when it comes to beauty products and I love testing out new things.

I also have a YouTube channel that has a few short and easy make-up tutorials (and some tumbleweeds). Subscribe!

How old are you?

I just turned 37 this December 2015.

How can I make money blogging?

I think this needs more space than just an FAQ answer. I am working on a little something that will help with blogging questions, watch this space.

When did you start your blog?

I started officially in November 2007, but I was writing online under the name MelleRobot for a long time previously.
