Hello

Hello! My name is Cerys and Croeso {Welcome} to Mascara & Mud.

What’s Mascara & Mud?  Born and raised in North Wales, {I haven’t left the village my Mam and Dad brought me home to after I was born…and somewhere I don’t intend on leaving any time soon, I love it here}, my blog first started out as somewhere to document my life and loves living in this beautiful country we get to call ‘adre’ {home}.  I have been blogging for around 7 years now and in that time, as with a lot of things, my blog has changed a bit.  But first and foremost, family is everything to me.  Paul, my husband and our Bois, Robb and Alfie, these gorgeous beings are my “sos coch to my chips”, the peanut to my butter, the spring in my step.  Do you get me?!

Secondly, I {and us as a family} love being outdoors; “adventure walks” as our bois like to call them, running, hiking up a mountain and sitting in awe at the gorgeous views from the top whilst sipping a coffee, exploring our neck of the woods with our dog, trying out new outdoor activities and everything else that comes with being outdoors! We simply love it and feel that we are living in one of the best places to experience it all.

As well as blogging about all of the above, I want to use it to also shout out about all of the great things Wales has to offer; the stunning picturesque places that surrounds us, the people {I love the people!}, the local food and drink, the clever creatives that have so much to offer and so on and so on.

Why Mascara and Mud?!  Mascara because I can’t go anywhere without a few lashings of the stuff applied and Mud…well, I have two boys {say no more} and a husband who loves his mountain bike, not forgetting our dog, Rolly…therefore, there is a lot of mud around here.

If any of the above interests you and you think you’ve got something to share or would like to collaborate with me somehow – please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
