Homegirl London is a lifestyle blog and interior design blog.  I feature positive, original and regular content around my two loves of homes and London.  You’ll find heaps of directional and inspiring interior design ideas covering contemporary, traditional, shabby chic, industrial, vintage and mid century modern styles.  I showcase plenty of stylish furniture, home accessories and unusual gifts.  I also write about furniture stores, London restaurants, interior design trends, cult beauty products and fabulous fashion finds.  Here’s a taste of what you can expect …

I started this blog in April 2012 with help from my Homeboy who created the website and provides 24 hour technical support (poor thing).  My professional career has been in brand public relations but my passion lies in homes and interiors.  This stems from painting and decorating to pay my way through college and working on building sites with my dad and brothers to fund university.  If you want to find out my real identity then track me down via LinkedIn.  Please connect with me via all my social media and you can find me on Google+.

Please Note

Content / Prices: All content is written by the blog owner and editor Homegirl London in good faith about products I like.  This doesn’t mean that I have actually tried or tested these products so you should carry out your own research.  If you are interested in a product you should check the current purchase price and any delivery charges via the retailer’s website.  I recommend that you also note the date of each blog post, which can be found at the top of the article, because some information may be out of date if the post is old.  Once a post has been released I do not go back to update prices or information.  Content will usually remain on the website for a minimum of six months unless I feel the need to remove it for any reason that I deem necessary.

Affiliate Partnerships: Affiliate partners are listed on my Links page.  If you click through to the website and buy via my blog I will receive a small commission.  Please note that I am not responsible for any purchases that you make from the affiliate companies or any grievances which may arise (or from any other companies, businesses or websites mentioned on my blog).  Rather than put direct links to a product I will put a link to the retailer’s website, this is to minimise dead links when the products are no longer available.

PR Submissions: Please do not add me to your press release or newsletter mailing list.  I write about products I like which fit into my existing blog sections and require high resolution quality photography and full product information.  I also look for businesses who can promote my blog via their social media so am interested in companies with at least 1500-2000 twitter followers.  Products must be available to buy online and not in-store exclusives or in the process of being crowd funded.  I do not write about products for pregnancy, babies, children or teenagers.  I do not write about alcohol, food or DIY products.  I do not write about sales, competitions, give-away offers, awards, surveys, brand campaigns, pop-up shops, exhibitions, events, gallery openings or include infographics.  I do not enter blogger competitions.  Please note that if a company or individual takes too long to forward content to me I will terminate the offer of editorial coverage within my blog.

Feature Sponsorship / Advertorials: I sometimes include sponsored features / advertorials in my blog for a fee.  This is only for products or brands that I like and the content must be written by me.  Sponsored features will be highlighted in the credits at the end of the article.  Please contact me for further information and the price list.

Guest Writers / Link Placement: I do not accept guest articles or written articles with a link placement under any circumstances.

Event Attendance: I do not attend events outside of London or in the evening.  I do not attend gallery exhibitions or pop-up shop openings.

Gratuities: Gifts are not accepted.  I will accept a paid for meal if you would like me to review your restaurant but this does not guarantee you coverage in my blog.  The meal must be for two people (please note that I am a vegetarian so will need to bring a fish or meat eater with me).

SEO / Web Design / Social Media / Video Links: I am not interested in hearing about any services from SEO, web design, social media or video companies under any circumstances.
