Hi! I'm Joëlle
I’m a Toronto-based bon vivant who has been sharing her life online since La Petite Noob's inception in 2013. Thank you so much for stopping by! Here's a bit about me:
As an Ottawa native, I’ve always felt the draw of a big city lifestyle and all of the variety that comes along with it. When the opportunity presented itself to live and work in Toronto I barely had to think twice before schlepping my stuff, my Chihuahua, my man-friend and myself to settle into Old Town. I love the juxtaposition of old and new in my beautiful neighbourhood and personally consider Old Town to be one of the most underrated areas in Toronto.
Fast forward to present day where we've added a little guy to the family, our son Benny, and have moved to a house in Leslieville. I'm glad that we were able to stay in the city, and have been having the best time discovering a new neighbourhood and renovating our builder-basic house.
I would describe my personal style as simple and feminine. I often say that if there's a rule book for Fashion, I never received my copy - I simply dress in a way that makes me feel good. Since starting La Petite Noob my style has certainly evolved, and continues to do so. The "Petite" of La Petite Noob refers to my size - I'm a whopping 5'2 (on a good day) and find that the biggest challenge in fashion is dressing for a short stature. I hope that my outfit posts can give inspiration for all of my fellow shorties out there.
The biggest joy I get from blogging is definitely interacting with my readers; every single comment and e-mail that I get makes me smile! Please be sure to head to my Instagram, Youtube and TikTok so we can become online besties.
A little about me? Think about all of the basic girl clichés: I absolute love flowers, quaint cafés, store openings and brunch. I’m also a self- proclaimed hungry girl with a gin-soaked liver, so eating out and cocktails are a big part of my life. If we were to bump into each other in the city I would either be talking to my dog, drinking an oat milk latte or listening to a true crime podcast.
Please always feel welcome to get in touch, I love meeting new people! E-mail me at lapetitenoob(a)gmail.com.
