What is your name and blog‘s or business‘ name?
I’m Louise de Miranda, based in the Netherlands and my blog is called 30s Magazine, an abbreviation for 30-something, because I am myself in my thirties and I target 30-40 year old women in particular.
What is your blog about? Is that your profession or a hobby?
My blog is a lifestyle blog. Daily I curate life’s little luxuries for the thirty-somethings who like to instill style in their everyday life. 30’s Magazine is about celebrating and savouring the best things in life: From jetting off to design hotels, to opting for exclusivity instead of trends in your home décor. I share my personally tried and tested travel notes, design conscious shopping tips, timeless interior design ideas, and favourite restaurants. But there is also room for the simple luxuries in life, like a walk in nature or trying a new recipe.
What was your favourite book (or magazine) as a child?
I loved a Dutch book series called ‚The Jolly Twins“ by Arja Peters about two twin girls who had all of these adventures. The series consists of books from 1958 till 1997.
What is your favourite magazine today?
That’s a hard question because there are more. I like The Simple Things Magazine, but I’m also fond of Dutch luxury interiors magazine Residence and the Australian Vogue Living. Each of them feeds another part of my versatile personality.
What is your home page when opening the browser?
Facebook. I have many international family members and friends, so first thing I do when I wake up is check how everyone is doing. It is still the easiest way to stay connected.
What is your favourite Social Media Platform (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, …)?
Instagram is currently my favourite. Although I don’t post a lot, I love to look at others‘ feeds to get inspired for my blog and interior styling.
One thing you love and one thing you hate!
I love travel, can’t imagine life without it, and I hate judgemental people. Live and let live and respect diversity.
