Happy Anniversary to Ma Nouvelle Mode!

Good morning, everyone, and Happy Friday!

Today is a special day to me -- it marks one year I have been writing this little blog.  It is special for so many reasons.  For one, it marks a year.  That's probably the longest I have stayed committed to one thing (besides my husband, of course!)  I have a little bit of an attention span problem and tend to get tired of things easily.  I have not, however, gotten tired of this blog and most certainly not you!


This space has given me the opportunity to meet so many new people, from all over the world, and I feel like I have genuinely developed relationships with a lot of you.  And for that, I say thank you!  Tomorrow I am going to recap this last year, but today I am going to take a second to tell you a bit about what is coming up for Ma Nouvelle Mode.

First of all, I wanted to give a little background as to why I wanted Christie to start blogging with me.  I realize I kinda sprung it on you. Well, I have a love for all things creative and beautiful.  I love hair, makeup, crafts (although not my forte) travel, cooking, you name it.  However, I work best when I am able to bounce ideas off people to create the best possible version of my idea.  When living in France, I can be pretty isolated from true, good, creative friends.  And let's face it, the husband's resources are... let's say... limited.

I also have some very big ideas of where I want to go with this blog and I just knew that I couldn't do it all.  I felt overwhelmed with my ideas and the amount of time and effort that it takes to make them work.  I gave plenty of thought about getting someone to do it with me, and honestly, when it came down to it, Christie was the only person who came to mind.  I love who she is as a person, her humble, real confidence, I love how cute she is, and I knew she could bring a lot to the blog.  I have already been impressed her with ideas, motivation, and organization (which I was in desperate need of).  And as you know, she is also a mom and pregnant so she can relate on that end as well!
From both of our photo shoots - after the redesign, you will see less of these particular photos, promise!
Second of all, I wanted to give you all a peak into what will be coming up on Ma Nouvelle Mode.  The last week of March we will not be posting at all because April 2nd we will be relaunching our blog with beautiful new branding, a move over to Wordpress, and a lot of new features & cool posts for you!  Christie and I are so very excited about it.  We have quite a few giveaway prizes already secured and are doing a big giveaway a day.

Would you like to be involved?  Maybe donate something from your blog/shop for one of the giveaways or host a guest post from us during that week?  We would also very much appreciate any retweets and Facebook shares you can muster up! :)  We would really love to work with you!  Please send me an e-mail at Natalia@manouvellemode.com and we can chat about it!

Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you for so much love and support over the last year.  I am incredibly thankful and Christie is so excited to delve into this world of blogging because of people like you!

Have a fabulous weekend!
