Yes, I can admit it (proudly), I’m a mess! No, I’m not ashamed…well most of the time (it’s always a bit embarrassing when someone points out the coffee stains on your shirt)!

Before I fully get into the post, I’d like to thank Babs from Living Beauty Babe for asking me these two wonderful questions! 

What is the meaning behind my brand name?

There isn’t really a meaning to Mia’s Messy Life. 

I’m a messy person always have been, always will be.

It’s somewhat of a defining factor of my personality. So as I was sitting there racking my brain, trying to choose a name for my blog, and the brand that I plan to build Mia’s Messy Life popped into my head.

I don’t usually choose things like names or tattoos because they have a meaning, I choose them because I like how they sound or look.

Mia’s Messy Life is a name that I can forsee fitting me and my brand for a long time. 


Why did I want to start a blog?

I’ve always loved writing, photography, travel, and sharing what I know to help others. Blogging combines all of these elements, it gives me a way to document where I am in life and develop myself further.

Heading into college, I knew I wanted to start something new and something that I would be passionate about.

Throughout highschool, I was so scared of what people would think if they found out about my passions. That fear kept me from doing so many things, music, writing, reading, & obviously blogging.

As I go into my Freshman year of college, I’m finally not scared, I’m so proud. I want people to find out and I want to share my passions.

There is no reason to be scared, other people’s opinions&judgments of you are none of your business. 


If you’re thinking & thinking about something, just do it; just start the blog, the youtube channel, the business. Buy the top you’ve been eyeing for weeks, buy that camera you’ve been dreaming about, go for it.

Follow your dreams & do what your heart desires!

    Such an inspiring read!
    I would recommend the same to others that are thinking about doing something – most of the time that is our problem – ACTUALLY DOING IT! <3
