British Coastal Living
The Boy Behind the Glasses,
My name’s Michael.
Mile in My Glasses has always been a creative escape of mine, since I created it in October of 2016. Just graduated University, I was looking for somewhere that I could chronicle my life from fledgling-alumni to the terrifying journey into adulthood. Partnering with my brilliant boyfriend Scott, we joined forces to make somewhere that I could do just that: and so, Mile in My Glasses was born.
Since then, its been incredible to watch our corner of the internet grow and attract new readers from across the globe daily. Talking and connecting with you is my favourite part of the blog, so thank-you to each and every person that reaches out to me.
Based in a small town in West Lancashire, a region of North England, and I try to incorporate the village lifestyle into my posts and content. I’ve been lucky enough to grow up in a coastal village my entire life, and with that brings a different perspective on life to what I’m used to seeing online. I’m a proud product of the British weather: blustery wind, Northern rain and the cooler temperatures.

My Fast Five
Five fast facts about me that you might not have known.
I Dream of Living in Paris
I mean, who doesn’t? But, after Liverpool – the city closest to my home – Paris is my favourite city in the entire world. I feel a calm among the avenues and boulevards of the beautiful city and can only dream of one day living there.
I Could Live on Chocolate
No, seriously. I mean I could live on chocolate. It could be my every meal. Morning, day and night. And there would be no complaints from me. My dentist might have a different opinion, though.
I’m a Homebody
Although my heart flutters at the thought of traversing the globe and spending days and nights on adventures that stretch into weeks, nothing quite makes me as happy as I am when I’m at home. The perfect date? A night in with my special guy. A great Netflix queue and delicious food too, ofcourse.
I’m a Sucker for Neutrals
Although bold colours and daring prints look amazing on Instagram and across the grey backdrop of cityscapes, there’s nothing that I love more than a collection of neutrals. You’ll probably notice in my OOTD posts that I swoon for the monochromatic scale.
I Never Leave the House Without Eye Cream
Tacky, right? I was graced with super visible bags, so eye cream is basically my go-to any given day. Right now, my favourite is Kiehl’s Age Defender – it’s silky smooth and really nourishing. Perfect for a day of doing just about anything.
