I cannot believe I missed my fourth bloggiversary! The last few weeks have been a non stop shooting-travelling-styling-partying bonanza and I completely forgot. I feel slightly like a parent that’s forgotten their child’s birthday. My dad forgot my brother’s once (note: not mine, I am far too much of a birthday brat for that to ever happen) and I remember how the guilt was writ large across his face. Anyway, La Petite Anglaise officially turned four on May 25th and that’s kind of blowing my mind. On the one hand, I can’t really remember a time before blogging, what on earth did I do with myself in those days!? On the other, it seems like just yesterday I was thinking about “giving this blogging thing a go” despite never actually having read one and knowing precisely nada about all things digital. If you’d told me then that I would eventually be doing it as a full time job, zooming off to international fashion weeks, working with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade NY and Mulberry, getting to know people who’s careers had long been the stuff of my wildest dreams… Well, I would have thought you were completely insane. Or at the very least, having a laugh. Blogging is such a new world and changing every day. In six months it may have totally imploded but for now, I’m having the time of my life doing something I love so much and really, that is all down to you. Without you lovely lot reading La Petite Anglaise none of the things that have happened over the past four years would have done. So while this post is a celebration of the site’s birthday, really, it’s a perfect chance for me to say the biggest THANK YOU! I truly could not be more grateful for all of your support and for sticking with me through the ups and downs and I’m sure, a number of absolutely rubbish posts along the way… Bring on the next four years!
Love Ella. X
Ps) I’ve also been meaning to ask for ages, what would you like to see more or less of on La Petite Anglaise? Outfits, parties, lifestyle, beauty… Tell me and I’ll make it happen!
