Founder / Editor / Janitor / Boss lady of this ship


Everything you read by Messy Nessy is written from my little clubhouse with a view here in Paris … or sometimes from the little café downstairs.

Mum & Dad named me Vanessa, but you can call me Nessy.

As you might have guessed, my life tends to get a little messy but I like to think it’s still chic– like a Jean-Luc Godard film or something.

Nessy was raised a London girl (there I go talking in third-person), but one day I packed up my things and decided it was time to return to the land of my ancestors and cheese, and move to gay ol’ Paris.

I fell in love and never looked back. (Highly recommended).

My passions? I like food, singing, writing, abandoned places, old photographs and puppies most in life.

If you’d like to contact me with a query, do not hesitate.

If you see a photograph that belongs to you on my site, it’s because I’m a fan and it was too good not to share! If the photograph is missing a link, I haven’t been able to find you and need you to get in touch so it can be credited correctly! However, if you don’t want to share it, I will gladly remove anything you ask me to, so please let me know.


Co-Founder at large / Magic Elf / Chief Technical Boss man


This is Alex. He’s the guy that saves my ass when I do something stupid on this blog.

He’s also the guy that took me from my little itty bitty small-time blog to this shiny new website you see today.

Alex is a born and raised Parisian. That means he drives a scooter, smokes a lot of cigarettes and knows how to dress like they do on The Sartorialist.

As well as being a computer engineering whiz, Alex can also design and make men’s shoes by hand. Oooh err. But on top of that, he’s the co-founder of his own artisanal brand of e-liquids called Thenancara.

He’s more than just a magic elf really. A lot of my ideas and inspiration come from this beautifully-bearded Parisian man.

The latest version of this website was also the handy work of a talented chap we found in old London town, by the name of Matt Gerrish
