why, hello.

hola ladies!Hey there. My name’s Nicole and this is my cozy little space to share recipes, DIYs and all the heartland things.

And who am I? Just another blogger? HOW DARE YOU SIR!

I’m a Wisconsin-born, Chicago-based copywriter by day and a writer/#bbg advocate/painter/book-obsessed/dog mom by night.
I created midwest love fest because I couldn’t find a digital space that felt like home to me. It was either the very basic, no-personality DIY blogs, the all-too-perfect fashion blogs or…nothing. I was struggling to find a blog that felt like a relatable friend. That painted a beautiful picture of the Midwest. That talked about the creative and healthy things I was interested in. That showcased the cozy, friendly vibes and ridiculously-tasty food that I grew up surrounded by. And so I decided to create it. And I’m reallllyyy hoping you enjoy it.

If you ever have any questions or just wanna chat, please reach out! You can find me via the form below or instagram x facebookpinterest x twitter x snapchatemail.

P.S. This blog does accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation (but only if it’s extra good). Of course, the compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog because that’s completely gross and I’m not about that life.
