Hi! My name is Alice, I'm a Brit, raised between Venezuela and Spain, currently living in Valencia, with Paris, my cute pet pig! :)

2. Why/how did you get into blogging?
I'd been using flickr for some years, I was quite involved in the groups, especially the fashion ones (http://www.flickr.com/groups/wardrobe_remix/">this one was and still if my fave!). I started seeing people sharing their blogs and I thought, i'm going to give it a go! But it did take me about a year to find the courage to post my first outfit (see it http://www.themowway.com/2011/12/blog-post.html">here, it's sooo strange in a terrible way! lol!)
