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+


Want to go shopping?  Check out my links page which features my favourite home, lifestyle, fashion and beauty online stores.  Designer-makers I’ve interviewed are also listed and so are the London shops I’ve written about.  Just click on the bag above to go through to the shopping area

I’d like to say a special thanks to The Ecologist, Designers’ Block and Glass Jars and Photographs for writing lovely articles about Homegirl London

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy reading my blog
