Hello, I’m Mikayla. Call me “Mix”

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog.

I’m a creative mom of 3, living in Cape Town, South Africa. I am a qualified graphic designer, now freelancing while trying to juggle life and kids and all my BIG ideas. I am passionate about home decor, plants, thrifting and travel. Did I mention food?!

Mixtakespics, a South African lifestyle blog was created in 2018, when I felt inspired to share real-life motherhood & lifestyle content. What started as a creative outlet, has become a platform that I adore and that I am very passionate about.

When I started this blog, I dreamt of creating an online store to create & sell useful, pretty things. It’s finally a reality and I am so grateful for each person who supports that little dream. Since then I’ve also started a YouTube channel which focuses on home decor and DIY’s.

Follow me on Instagram for more everyday content & my life in general. If you’re a brand looking to partner with me, you can read more here.

Love, Mix
