I've definitely enjoyed reading all of the About Me posts lately. I always like to learn more about my blogging bff's. It's nice to sort of reintroduce ourselves every once in a while as well, to all our new friends. So I'm joining in today and giving you a little lesson in all things Mia.
Mia, I'm 28 and I live just outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
My sweet hubby Dustin and I have been together for over 8 years and married for 6. We have a Pekingese fur child that goes by Pixie/Peke/peke-poo/peke-tron. We adopted her before we got married, 7 years ago. I'm the middle child, the only girl. I have an older and a younger brother.
M-F 9 to 5
I work at an office making plat books for all the counties in Oklahoma. Yeah, it's hard to explain... I've worked there 8 years and they treat us good.
Welcome to my office.
What Do I enjoy
Traveling & any adventure with Dustin, LifeGroup with my girls, working out, blogging, eating dessert (it's a hobby), concerts, shopping, painting my nails.
Mexican food! I cook some type of Mexican dish at least once a week and crave guacamole 24/7. No joke. *Fun fact- I've hated avocados my entire life, started liking them last year and now I want avocados and guacamole allllll the time. Also, I have the worst sweet tooth ever. I can't get enough!
This was my plate in Mexico, every single day.
Pink & gold, can't get enough of both. I'm 100% girly girl.
Venti Iced skinny vanilla latte (Starbucks)
Iced White Chocolate Macadamia Nut (local coffee shop)
Wine, Cape Cod, mojito, beer or ciders. I hate tequila, no margaritas for Mia.
Where Do I Shop
Target, Old Navy, TJ Maxx, F21, Nordstrom Rack. Oh and Sephora, duh.
We are usually asleep by 10 pm and we both get up at 5 am. I make him a quick breakfast and he leaves for work at 5:30 am. I don't leave until 8:10 am so I spend my mornings doing blog stuff, watching a show or doing laundry. I've never been an early riser but once I got used to this routine, I love my early morning "me" time now! I get stuff done in the mornings so I don't have to in the evenings.
Beauty Product Must Haves
I have 4 holy grail products that I would recommend to everyone: Sigma F80 flat top kabuki brush, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and my Urban Decay setting spray.
What I Blog About
A little bit of this and that. I started as a beauty blog, but quickly realized I wanted to blog about everything else too. I share beauty finds and favorites, recipes, fitness and just lifestyle stuff in general.
First Blog I Read
I believe the first 2 blogs I got hooked on were Peanut Butter Fingers & Olives n' Wine. Still read & love them both. They are both crazy dog moms too, my kind of girls.
How Did I Get Started Blogging
I am a huge YouTube beauty guru fan. Jaclyn Hill and Nicole Guerriero are 2 girls I wish I knew in real life, for real. I love all things beauty and makeup related and enjoy sharing tips and my favorite products. However, I don't feel like I'm someone who could sit behind a camera and film, so the blog was born.
Why I Blog
I blog for me, it's a creative outlet that I really enjoy. However, I love it so much more than I ever could have imagined because blogging has turned into something I never expected. I had absolutely no idea when I started this, the friendships that would come along with it. I have friends from all over the country that I get to talk to every day. Friends that I would feel 100% comfortable with jumping on a plane and spending a girls weekend with. It's so neat! The thoughts and expectations I had when I started this blog have completely changed over the last year, and I love it.
I hope you've enjoyed getting to know me a little better today!
