I AM YOUNG, THEREFORE I KNOW NOTHING.

I can rap gold digger from memory, but have already forgotten your name.

i HAVE A CREDIT CARD but can't explain what CREDIT IS OR what it DOES,

and still handle first dates with all the finesse of a murder investigation.

Simply stated,

BUT! then again, 

I have been an intern for Martha Stewart,

once coerced Alec Baldwin into writing a twitter haiku,

gave birth to a comedy mini series,

 hold the prestigious position as head chef  in an Italian-American household, and study things like

the science of creativity,beyonce, and Leonardo DaVinci for fun.

. . . So maybe I do know a thing or two about a thing or two.

I AM NOT A LIFESTYLE EXPERt,
BUT RATHER, A LIFESTYLE AMATEUR

To be considered an expert in anything requires years of making an ass out of yourself through mistrial and error until you have witnessed all of the things that could possibly go wrong.

Lucky for you, being a daily disaster is one of my strong suits. I'm willing to take one for the team, flushing any shame down the commode to flop freely on the interwebz so that you don't have to!

Through everyday experiments and reflections on personal life experiences, I seek to transform us all from booty-twerking twenty-nothings into more creative, productive, semi-sufficient *human beans*.

The only thing I ask in return is that you drop a line. Fill me in on the struggles and mysteries of your everyday world so that I can explore and report back to move you one step closer towards an ideal future as an Upper East Side scarf collector with an open-concept  pied-à-terre, and a white Alaskan malamute lovingly named 'Mother'

...Am I still talking out loud?

Trust me: i have full faith that things can only go upward from here.

My name is Mia Lardiere, but that's difficult to pronounce,

so do us all a favor & call me "the olive eye"

 namaste dweebs, and let's get to living.
