: Where the dream started? What gets you out of bed in the morning? What is next for you personally and what is next for M&M? Milo and Mitzy began back in 2011 when I was studying. Basically I am really really excellent at procrastinating. I had this huge list of blogs that I would read while I was meant to be studying. I thought to myself, I can do this, I am obsessed with interiors and fashion, why not. And so it all began and it has just grown and grown ever since and it surprises me every day how many people actually want to log onto Milo and Mitzy to read the garbage that I write. I wish that I could change the name but I am too far into it to do that I think. I have also recently embarked on the adventure of designing and have created several woollen blankets that to my suprize completely sold out! I am passionate about New Zealand Wool therefore this is something that I am working on currently. Watch this space!

ROUND UP: Style is: I think true style is a bit of a natural thing actually. Yea you can have the latest and the greatest but that’s not me, I prefer a bit more individuality with a mix of whats trending. Think old mixed with new. Success is: Achieving goals. I heard a quote the other day, fail to prepare, prepare to fail. That applies to me in so many ways. When I am teaching in the classroom, planning the week with my husband, blogging and being a Mum.
