Firstly, tell me a bit about yourself and your blog :
I'm Mia and I started the blog 4 and a half years ago with my best friend Laura. We started the blog together as we both wanted to blog and are basically the same person so figured it would work well to do it together. Doing it as a pair has definitely made it easy as our lives have changed and things have cropped up we've been able to support each other. Our blog used to be mainly beauty but is now a mix of beauty, life, travel and fitness. We cover most things.
What do you love most about living in Wales?
I'm based in Cardiff and love it. It's such an amazing city and always has lots going on but isn't too manic like other cities can sometimes feel. I also love how close I am to amazing scenery. Brecon Beacons are near by to explore and the amazing Glamorgan coastline is somewhere I head to regularly! I do think we're also really lucky to have such an amazing blogging community here!
What, if anything, is your least favourite thing about living in Wales?
Hmmm this is a tough one as ever since I moved here for uni it has really felt like home and a great place to be. I guess it's kind of a love hate as Cardiff has an amazing vibe in the centre on rugby days which I love and love getting out to watch the games but if you have something to do or somewhere else to be it's an absolute nightmare!
What made you decide to start a blog?
Laura and I both loved make up and beauty products and trying new things so we kind of started it to share our loves and to justify our buying habits. If you're purchasing it to blog about it's totally acceptable to buy without guilt right?. We also in the beginning did cocktail recipes once a week as we used to have more time to head out for a few mid week cocktails.
What has been the highlight of your blogging career so far?
We've been lucky to get to do some great things and head to great events but I think at the moment it was probably getting to spend time backstage at fashion week last year and see what goes on behind the scenes!
Who are your favourite Welsh bloggers?
Some of my favourites include :
A Slice of My Life Wales
but there are so many amazing welsh bloggers we love it is hard to pick a few!
