Hi! My name is Laura. I am a blogger based in Oxfordshire, UK. I write about lifestyle, parenting, a love of the outdoors, nature and crafts. Mama to Mia (six) and Joseph (2). As a family we like to live a simple, adventure filled life; exploring what is around us… hellomistermagpie is a record of this, of everyday moments that would otherwise be forgotten, about collecting memories. Other than my ever-growing love of photography, I have a wide range of interests, including travel, exploring the countryside with my two little ones, crafting, making and collecting. I have romantic dreams of self-sufficiency, grow my own fruit and veg, and have recently become a proud owner of my very own allotment.
