You're not seeing double... our Autumn campaign was a joint effort from twins Elena and Manuela Lazic. Read More
What’s the nicest thing your sister has done for you?
Elena: Put up with me!

Manuela: She let me spend a lot of time with her and her boyfriend as I was going through a tough break up, they made me laugh a lot!
How has she helped you professionally?
E: She's always encouraging people to follow their desires and dreams. She's basically the reason I moved to London!

M: She encouraged me to write even though I had no experience! And as a model, we've been supporting each other since day 1.
Who’s the better cook?
E: Cooking isn't a big deal, neither of us do much of it, but I invite people over to mine more so I cook a little more often than she does.

M: She makes a great salmon.
Who’s messier?
E: I am more inclined to frantically tidy things up when I'm stressed out, Manue doesn't do that very much but she's still very tidy!

M: Definitely her.
Who has the best wardrobe?
E: We have very different styles, Manue is more 'girly' than I am and I struggle more to find things that I like. Interpret that as you wish!

M: We both have style, but quite different from each other, so we don't argue about it!
Name a fun fact about your sister
E: She will soon be a very famous and respected actress!

M: She doesn't play guitar but she can play the guitar part of Stairway to Heaven really well. It rules.
Name a favorite memory together
E: Having spent most of our lives together, I often assume she was there basically every moment of my life! I sometimes mistakenly think she was somewhere with me when, in fact, she wasn't. But one nice time where she definitely was with me were the few weeks we spent in Milan a few years ago. It was right after high school and we took a gap year to do some modelling full-time. I've never been as relaxed as I was those few weeks in Milan.

M: Living together in Milan for a few months after our baccalaureate and spending our days listening to Led Zeppelin, drinking cheap cappuccinos and laughing hysterically about anything. Read Less

What’s the nicest thing your sister has done for you?
Cynthia: She surprised me with beats and electronics to help me with my move to Philadelphia.

Tania: She’s done a ton of nice things, but recently I locked myself out of my place(twice this past year) and she drove an hour to drop off her spare key in order to get into my place. The first time was right before a flight to Paris!
How has she helped you professionally?
C: She dresses me so I look the best for my interviews.

T: She proofreads some of my writing cause she’s a GREAT writer and she gives me advice on which photo to post - Blogger problems LOL.
Who’s the better chef?
C: ME

T: DEF Cynthia, she made a cookbook in high school and has been cooking for the family since then.
Who’s messier?
C: Tania.

T: ME!
Who has the best wardrobe?
C: Tania.

T: I do, but hers is just as good cause she ‘shops’ in my closet every month haha.
Name a fun fact about your sister
C: She was a star basketball player while growing up.

T: She majored in Micro Immunology and molecular genetics - YAH, TRY REMEMBERING THAT! She’s basically a genius.
Name a favorite memory together
C: In Japan this summer as she danced down the streets with blasting music, I walked slowly behind her laughing and judging her for her craziness.

T: My favorite memory would have to be when I used to be her basketball coach, she was such a team player, determined and so passionate about the game!

Meet Patrice and Thaina Madere. These talented ladies devote their professional careers to working in applied behavioural therapy… all while running their fashion and lifestyle site, SecretsDesSoeurs.com. Basically, they’re helping others on every available platform, and we love them for it. Read More
What’s the nicest thing your sister has done for you?
Patrice: Ahh…this is tough. Thai always does nice things. Thaina is getting married this year, November 5th to be exact, and I’m kind of struggling. But to ease the pain, in honor of our relationship and sisterhood, she presented me a ring to wear on my right hand as a commitment to us. Literally the happiest, sweetest moment of my life.

Thaina: She presented me a jar of handwritten sealed uplifting notes from my friends and family to read and inspire me on rainy days.
How has she helped you professionally?
P: I’d have to say by her constant provision of believing in me. Through my toughest moments (I swear she’s psychic) she checks in, reminds of who I am and encourages me to BOSS UP!

T: She believes in me and expresses that often, which inspires me to be better. Not to mention, she's also half the brains of our blog Secrets Des Soeurs.
Who’s the better cook?
P: Uhh… define better? I feel like this is subjective lol. Thaina is definitely the better cook. I don’t like cooking but when I do, my food has flavor! *Flips hair*

T: That would be me.
Who’s messier?
P: Definitely Thaina.

T: Ugh, That also would be me
Who has the best wardrobe?
P: We have different styles. I admire her creativity with mixing pieces but I feel both of our wardrobes are pretty solid.

T: I have a bigger collection but I think we both have great pieces.
Name a fun fact about your sister
P: Her indication for falling asleep is flicking her toes. She knocks out 0.2 seconds after.

T: I brought a cat home to bring to a shelter that she fell in love with. When my mom said absolutely not, she slept in the car overnight with the cat and decided she'd live out of her car to keep the cat. Needless to say, Slim Shady the kitty is now house Captain. We can't get rid of her!
Name a favorite memory together
P: One morning we spent hours looking through childhood family photos. She would remind me of the hilarious context and say how annoying I was, she says I was attention seeking, I say I was simply a born lover. I had character.

T: Last Christmas was AMAZING! We had so much fun we decided to sneak away from our family party and get sister tattoos an hour away, only to return 2 hours later with virgin skin cause we're wimps. One day we'll get them though. Read Less

What’s the nicest thing your sister has done for you?
Nicole: Hahahahha I'm the younger one of the two so I'm spoilt rotten. She's done everything for me but I think the nicest thing she's done is basically putting up with me in general!

Rachel: Too many to recall.. but a favorite story is a semi-surprise birthday party one year, and getting me a pair of Alberta Ferreti pants another year!
How has she helped you professionally?
N: We work essentially in the same industry, so I always turn to her when I have work problems or need an emergency therapy sesh.

R: We are extremely opinionated individuals and she often challenges my beliefs and strategies which I think makes me put out better work!
Who’s the better cook?
N: ME. 100%.

R: Nicole!
Who’s messier?
N: .... Me.

R: Also Nicole!
Who has the best wardrobe?
N: We share one! But I totes think I have better taste.

R: This is tough because we share a big closet!!!
Name a fun fact about your sister
N: She's a trained dancer! Modern dance and ballet.

R: She skipped 2 years of highschool! No prizes for guessing who is the smart one.
Name a favorite memory together
N: SO MANY? Most probably the entire experience of running this blog with her has been great fun! Wouldn't have chosen to have it any other way. We also used to watch Bones religiously together throughout college. Best thing ever.

R: We did a road trip on the Pacific Coast Highway together once and it was amazing and we got a lot of great content. I also love when we spontaneously re-enact scenes of Amanda and Marc from Ugly Betty! Read Less
