We’re Alex & Mike — lifestyle bloggers living in Philadelphia. We started our blog as a creative outlet. We were bored and frustrated in our everyday lives and needed a change. After brainstorming ideas one night while relaxing on the couch (possibly with pizza + rosé), Alex & Mike was born. We love fashion, skin care, home decor, and food. All of this has come together to create a lifestyle destination. We hope our blog will be a place you can visit for tips, tricks, and inspiration.
Let’s Get Social!
How long have you guys been together?
We met in college. We both had the same major and met sophomore year. We’ve been together for over 6 years! We actually wrote a post all about the relationship tips we’ve used throughout the years if you want to check it out.
When did you start your blog?
We started our blog in 2015. We needed a creative outlet to share our passions. From there, the rest is history.
Do you both have full-time jobs?
Yes, we do. We like to keep things super real. At this time, we aren’t able to strictly blog — hopefully one day! Until then, we make it work. We wrote a blog post about our jobs and how we balance life if you want to learn more.
What kind of camera do you use and how do you edit?
We shoot with a Canon 70D. We use both a 50mm and 24-70 mm lens. For Instagram, we use a mix of camera and iPhone photos. We use Lightroom and VSCO to edit.
SPONSORSHIPS, PARTNERSHIPS, AND COLLABORATIONS
Since we first started our blog, it has now turned into a business for us. We absolutely love sharing products, clothes, and everything else in our lives with you guys. Since this is a business for us, we do partner with brands from time to time. The majority of our partnerships come from us loving a brand so much that they reach out to us looking to collaborate. We only work with brands we truly love. The trust we’ve built with our readers is something we don’t take lightly. We would never do something just for money. If you’re an avid reader, you know that to be true. Like we always say, we keep things super real.
We own the rights to all of our content. We love it when you share our photos and blog posts — we simply ask to be properly credited.
You can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to help answer any other questions you might have.
