It started on a summer walk. We were chatting about what we'd been writing and reading online when BOOM! We started a blog. By the end of that walk we'd come up with a name: Le Petite Mania; Our faux French epithet for 'trying to be a little fancy but kinda stuffing it up' which never fails to attract irate emails from French speakers who boast a grammar fetish!
We attended Wellington Fashion Week where we fell in love with heaps of kiwi designers!
The Zombie Beauty Pageant where Lisette was a competitor!
We interviewed some amazing New Zealand women
We tried lots of new beauty products and reviewed plenty of beauty treatments
We wrote about fashion
We went on a ghost hunt
Lisette tried to kill herself by attempting the Warrior Dash with zero training
We enjoyed making contacts with our favourite photographer, graphic designer and make-up artist
Then there was the experiment to see that if when we got drunk we were still sexy (we weren't)
Making music videos was fun
Getting rejected by Google Ads because our content is lewd and rude! (But still actually pretty hilarious!)
The amazing support we have had from all our advertisers and giveaway providers (see sidebar)
And of course, all of this lead to us publishing our first book about how creative kiwi women tick.
The lucky winner will be announced on Friday Feb 7th at 7pm.
What will 2014 bring?
