Happy Anniversary Metrogypsie

Congratulations 🍾🎉🎈🎊 to you as we are a   year older. 5 years ago this blog started out as an outlet to inspire the working lady and gent style-wise. The hashtag we coined ‘#ladyonhergrind’ has been used over 10,000 times on instagram. Other hashtags like #MGTravelSAN, #MGTravelParis #TMHowTo, #MayreeMetro, #MGTravel6 can be searched to find collaborations and travel we remembered keep track of.

As at today we have diversified into retail (sustainable), food, photography, styling – all these have individual pages which would be shared sometime in the future. This past year we have encountered major hitches with our YouTube management which resulted in a shut down of the channel and a re-opening Of a new one in August 2017 (11th). Now at 345 subscribers and 3000 minutes views, we are extremely grateful. Kindly subscribe if you haven’t.
