MIA LARDIERe

is a New York-based writer and visual storyteller. She is currently a Multimedia Content Producer at Celebuzz, where she produces and hosts a weekly pop culture podcast called Celebuzz’d

She received a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College with a concentration in screenwriting and Italian, and created, directed, and produced a mini series called Little Investments as her senior thesis that you can watch on Funny Or Die

This is her blog, where she cooks, shares thoughts about food, and elaborates on parboiled thoughts that couldn’t adequately be covered in 140 characters on Twitter or in an Instagram caption. Published elaborations from her brain can be found here.

Highlights in Mia’s life thus far include receiving a haiku poem from Alec Baldwin, sitting on Fabio’s lap, and talking to Billy Eichner about Joan Rivers. One day, she'll host a variety-talk-cooking show and chest-bump with Ina Garten

 

Wait, but why 'The Olive Eye'?

When Mia was a baby, she had disproportionately large peepers that resembled black olives. Her family gave me — I mean her  the nickname 'Olive Eyes' so that she wouldn't develop a Bratz Doll complex later in life. She's grown into her eyes for the most part, except when she occasionally sleeps with them open on vehicles of public transit.
