"I'm Candice DeVille, author of Super Kawaii Mama; a six year old blog dedicated to inspiring vintage glamour for a 21st century life. I'm all about fighting the malaise of the mass market through glamour, creativity and a sense of humour; in every situation.
Professionally I write, model, style hair & makeup, and present; then come home to my two little girls, husband, dogs and a never ending sense of adventure. Growing up I always wanted to be both a journalist and an archeologist, (oh and Wonder Woman), so surprisingly my life has turned out to be a combination of all these things. I love to connect with people's journey through fashion and the way it so often reflects their philosophy on life; both in the past and the present.
I'm often asked if I could have lived any time in history when would it be? Unexpectedly, I would only choose now; the 21st century and all the wonder and opportunities for connecting to the world as a whole. Because underneath it all, we all want the same things. My role is to help translate the style language of the past, the present, and give us a new and inspiring vocabulary for the future." - Candice
