We are thrilled to announce that the stunning and incomparable Perth Fashion and Lifestyle blogger, Monique Ceccato of Little Miss Mon Bon is our Official Brand Ambassador for 2016. We sat down for a chat with her to give you the inside scoop on what being a fashion blogger is all about.

Monique is a twenty-something Perth based creative, content creator and social media specialist. Her fashion and Lifestyle blog was founded out of a thirst to educate herself more about the fashion and PR industries. She has now grown Little Miss Mon Bon into a space that aims to educate, inspire and encourage readers to experience new things through the detailing of her own experiences. Touching on fashion, beauty, fitness and lifestyle, Little Miss Mon Bon is a dynamic multi-faceted space that let's Monique's fun and bubbly personality shine through. We asked her a few questions so that our shoppers and shoe lovers can get to know her and her blog a little bit better.

Tell us more about the Little Miss Mon Bon brand that you have developed?

Little Miss Mon Bon is all about fun, individuality and confidence, and learning to embrace that in everyday life without caring what other people think.

What is it really like to be a lifestyle blogger in Perth?

I feel the general public are quite misguided as to what being a blogger actually entails. We don't just flit about, trying on pretty clothes, getting our photo taken for only an hour a day. Sure, there is a small element of the frou frou things at times, but for the most part, it is a crazy busy job. Imagine what it is like running the Vogue website, then imagine doing all of that yourself – website coding, writing, photography, styling, social media and the rest – and that is what we do (obviously not to the magnitude of such a large publication, but very similar). Generally we work for more than 8 hours a day, as well as on weekends, and it is really hard to learn where your work ends and social life starts. It is a lot of work but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Run through a day in the life of Little Miss Mon Bon.

A typical day for me starts between 5.20am and 6.00am. If I am not off to a gym class at 6.00am, I am awake by 6.00am and starting my work day with emails, stat checking and notification checking. By 8.30am, I am showered and ready to start working for my clients. Generally 8.30-12.30 is time that I set aside to get work done for my clients. After I have finished with them, I either arrange to go and shoot new content, or I get back to working on my own blog work (emails, posts, editing etc). By around 4.30, I wrap up my work and start getting ready for whatever event I have that evening – movie previews, bar launches, fashion shows or dinners. If I have the evening off, I will work through until whenever my partner gets home (usually 6pm), get some dinner prepped, work again until around 8.30pm and then relax from 8.30pm onwards.

Why have you chosen to work with Elle et Lui and what do you love about our products?

I always seek out interesting, fun and eye-catching pieces – I feel that they express my personality or where I am in life at that particular time – and the shoes and handbags on display at Elle et Lui help me to do that so well. Everything has so much detail, things that surprise you when you look at it, and I absolutely love that! It beats a simple black pair of leather pumps, right?

Thanks for your time Mon, we're sure all of our shoppers will be dying to meet you at our next special event.

Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram shoe lovers, many exciting things to come!
