Highway to ELLE!

So, I've grown up. A little. And moved on. Not really. ;)

Fact is: I'm on the Highway to ELLE. Miss Mimi got promoted. And from today onwards she will be calling herself by her real name, that is Melissa, and will be blogging for the German ELLE. For my NEW BLOG, called Berlin-Paris.

So yeah, I'm kinda proud...  And still blown away...

ELLE is kinda strict and have issued me a whole list of what I'm NOT supposed to do:

- no pink
- no light pink, either (harharharrr I'm using PURPLE!!!)
- a ban on BOWS
- no HEARTS, as well
- a black background
- no use of THE  DAWG to excess
- no spelling missteiks
- not a single comma is to be forgotten!!!
- my proper name, no Miss or Missy
- regular blogging and posting hours.
- no LOL, OMG or WTF!!!
- and all posts are to be written in German

But don't you worry. I will still find the time to update my pink little kingdom.
I hope you speak German! Anyway, I will post lots of outfits and pictures.
So do check it out! Miss Mimi, uh um sorry, Melissa now for ELLE, every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday! Yeah!!! :)

  1. Congrats, I think you will do a great job because I think you have a nice style. My only concern is that I hope you'll keep being honest about what you really like instead of liking something because its sponsored. The reason why most of us visit these types of independent blogs is because we want an honest opinion about fashion and brands. Your blog is fun and I will visit the Paris-Berlin blog too.

    1. Hey! Thank you, I really apreciate your feedback. As a matter of fact, the truth about sponsoring looks like this: a blog has a few ways of making money: either trough direct, and kinda obvious add banners, through sponsoring or product endorsements, that a reader will not recognize, or through stuff like an online store. On Miss Mimis World I have neither, except for my online store called Wishlist. But I have it mailnly because it looks so cute, and it makes life a lot easier, as I don't have to place links to products individually.
      On the Elle Blog, they have both: Direct Advertisements, and an eshop. Both easy recognizeable as such. On the other hand, they have super strict clauses concerning sponsored products. I was really looking forward to this, but NOPE:
      I am getting payed per post, no mater what I write. And that's it. i think the other large magazines will handle this in a similar way.
      So in Fact, I think that magazine Blogs, that have the sole purpose of strenghtening a Mags online performance and driving readers to their site by increasing the traffic, are less sponsored and more objective than most independant Blogs...
      So I assure you: Miss Mimis World and Berlin-Paris will always be without sponsoring, unless it is clearly marked as such.
      Happy to have you as a reader!
      Xxx Miss Mimi

  2. Wow Meli, so proud of you! This is the first time I see this & it's a great blog/website. Wish I could read German to follow you. :) Best wishes, Angel (www.angelgoa.com)

    1. Thanks Angel! Your Blog is really nice and inspirational, too. I think blogging is a great way to express yourself. And you never know where it can take you. Good luck with yours, too! Xx m

  3. Haha, oh Melissa - hope we are not treating you too bad ;)
    Your ELLE-Isabelle

    1. Dear Isabelle,
      Of course not! I am so happy and proud to be part of ELLE, that renouncing pink was the least I could do. I hope you enjoy Miss Mimi's World! :)
      Xxx Melissa
