What is Midcoast Cute?

Two best friends from college, Daniella + Alyssa, have attempted to live in the same city three different times! Daniella being born + raised in Newport Beach, California wanted a change of pace for college. She attended the University of Kansas for three semesters. After being accepted into FiDM, she followed her dream of studying graphic design and moved back to California with hopes of returning to Kansas someday.

Alyssa had lived in Kansas her whole life. After meeting her best friend Daniella at The University of Kansas, she decided it was time to branch out. She moved to California for the summer between her Junior + Senior year of college for an internship. After they both graduated, Daniella + Alyssa both moved to Kansas City for (what seemed like) 2 short years.

Daniella moved back to California in the summer of 2019. It seemed as though their lives kept pulling them apart to different cities. This is when they came up with the idea. They both had a love for fashion, beauty, + entertaining… why not make a platform where they could share their lives together, but from different cities? One from the Midwest + one from the West Coast! Follow along as they hope to make many more friends from coast to (not) coast!
