{la petite mag...}

yes, it happened again. i fell into the wonderful rabbit hole of blogging. sometimes i come across something that is so amazing and magical that i have to immediately share it with you. on mondays i enjoy reading a column on la la lovely titled, monday mess. through this column, trina spotlights different bloggers and their "messes." (pretty cool blog column and i always learn about a cool new blogger.)

case in point: that's how i came across kenzie poo and her online magazine, la petite mag. i'm telling you guys, get ready to be dazzled. even if you don't have children, the magazine is a treasure trove of unique content including interesting interviews with designers/artists, interior design ideas, and diy projects. in addition, i can't forget to mention the breathtaking photography, beautiful graphic design, and fashion spreads that are on par with any couture glossy. la petite reminds of the good old days when cookie magazine still existed. (why do all my favorite magazines meet untimely deaths?)


i think my favorite part is the way the kids are styled; a little bit of edge goes a long way in my book.

so spill, have you stumbled upon a new favorite blog lately? careful, you might just send me down another rabbit hole.

  1. I call it the rabbit whole too (that is just so appropriate!) These kiddies are just adorable.

  2. Theresa, I count on YOU to point me to the rabbit holes! And I love the idea of Monday Mess. Totally gonna need to check that one out! The photos of those kids are stunning. You're right, edgy and gorgeous.

  3. hello theresa! the photos are lovely! i have not found new wonderful spaces. remember summer break? i'm changing jobs, and so already working in my new classroom. i've not had time to finish byw2 even. i'm with lauren, you are the rabbit hole person. thank you!

  4. Well gosh, those kids are stunning and totally giving me baby fever (like I needed any more). I remember Cookie mag! It's such a shame the state the magazine and journalism industries are in right now. Domino was the biggest blow for me. Anyway, I adore rabbit hole adventures, I think they are so neat and you always end up finding something magical. I've wasted hours online doing just that! My favorite discovery recently has been Veanad, I use photos she finds from all over tumblr to curate my Like a Picture series and she has just about one of the most amazing aesthetics I've ever come across. Total blog-crush. You know, after you guys ;) xo

  5. I'm already sucked in by that photography. I love great images of little ones in stylish clothes but still looking like kids.
    I've been trying not to go down rabbit holes lately. I'm on blog overload with the BYW class and keeping up with that. What are you taking from the class? Teri

  6. I don't have kids but I can certainly appreciate good styling when I see it...I mean, a tutu with a "super" tee?? I wish it was socially acceptable for me to walk around wearing a tutu. Oh and that rabbit hole you speak of...I know it well.

  8. Oh yes, you've gone and done it again. We can always rely on you T to come up with some really great blogs. The little girl with the bow and arrow looks a bit tooo grown up though, is that lipstick she has on there? Let me go have a look at the magazine now. I'm afraid to say that I cannot give you any blog recommendations. I'm doing BYW2.0 too so you'd think I'd be able to offer something up but no, I haven't had the time to look, it's shocking really. Thanks Tx

  9. Thanks for introducing me to this! Love it. I do the whole 'blog rabbit hole' thing too and before I know it have ready like 2 years back on people, oops! I think i need that teepee in my backyard :)

    xo,

  10. I do the 'blog rabbit hole' thing too! I love it though. I can't wait to delve into these sites. You could check out http://www.papier-mache.com.au/ it is so awesome. I agree a bit of edge and spunk goes a long way. xxx

  11. That girl with the super tshirt is so cool!
    My new favourite blog is girlaboutgarden. she's a garden consultant and spends her whole time visiting beautiful gardens. I always think she's super obsessed and find it funny that she has such a one track mind but then it's no different to being obsessed with interiors like us lot. I love seeing a bit of nature on her blog everyday.
    I'm trying to stay away from the rabbit hole as tbh I have a hard enough time keeping up with the blogs I already read. Think it's going going to have to be a one in one out rule!

  12. Too much styling of kids for me:) coming form the woman with no children!

    I don't do 'rabbit hole' coz I wouldn't be able to hear myself think! Also I think in order to 'create' my head can't be filled with millions of images. Thanks for the introduction.

  13. I've fallen down that rabbit hole plenty of times. It's funny when you're like, Okay last one. And before you know it, several more hours go by. Checking out this mag now. So chic!

  14. Yes, Domino was the other magazine I was hinting at...Why? Blueprint was another good one that's gone.
    I really need to make my way over to Veanad because the photos you use for Like a Picture are always SO good.

  15. I know what you mean. I think I need to cut down on my rabbit holes. Though, actually, this is the first one in a long time.
    BYW 2.0 has been good. I've been pulling a lot of late nights and I'm looking forward to getting back to the schedule I had before the course started.

  16. Right? I think there is even some inspiration for adults in these fashion spreads.

  17. Well, we are almost to the end. I can't believe how fast the month of June has flown by. Weren't we just starting the month and the course?!

  18. Yes, the teepee! I really want this one in our backyard too. The kids would love it. Or, maybe I would turn it into my own secret hideaway.

  19. Thank you for that link, Leah. Just quickly popping over I can tell it's going to be good.

  20. What an interesting blog. I think it takes much discipline and creativity to be so singularly focused on a topic. Kudos.
    It is very hard to keep up with reading blogs. That's a good rule of thumb to follow.

  21. I hear what you're saying about overstimulating yourself with tons of blog reading. It makes sense. I use to have a writer friend who wouldn't read anything outside of his own work when he was working on a piece in order to avoid influence.

  22. Yes, exactly! I open one tab, then open another tab, then another...It's crazy. :)
