In Me Personal

Get to know me

    Image from, London Fashion Week 2017

As a relatively new blogger, I thought it best to answer a few questions in an effort to be a little bit  more transparent. You may have noticed that I don't have any pictures of myself which isn't usually synonymous with personal blogs but after attempting to start a few blogs I have decided to allow        myself some growing time. So in an attempt to foster some intimacy with you, I thought i'd answer    a few questions.

The questions cannot be attributed to one source and there are some of my own - I hope you don't        mind! p.s. feel free to recommend any future tags/content ideas in the comment section. This post        certainly reads like an old 2009 blog/ youtube post! Ahh, the golden years!

 Again, I hope you enjoy x

Are you named after anyone - No. Though i'm not sire that I would have liked to have been. So perhaps it was for the best lol. And as an extension of that, I never wanted to have a twin, I   loved my independence. Although i'm not sure how that would have been possible...

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? - I think so. I'd definitely make myself giggle. The only drawback is that I like to spend time alone and it would be a hassle to get me out of the house! I think that's a yes...

What’s the first thing you notice about people? - Their facial expressions. They are not always telling of a person's character but I always do. 

What is your eye color? - Brown, just brown lol. When I was younger I was convinced that they were black. Might I add that I was significantly younger..

Scary movie or happy endings? - I don't watch scary movies or action movies because I scream all the way through and count it as a waste of time afterwards.

What are your 5 favourite fashion brands? - Zara, COS, Whistles, Jaeger and HOBBS. I am particularly indebted to European and Scandinavian style pieces at the moment. 

What are your 5 favourite beauty brands? - NARS, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder and YSL beauty. 

What are your hobbies? - Watching youtube, spending time with friends and family and browsing through my favourite blogs!

How tall are you? - 5"5

What is your favourite TV show? - My favourite show of the moment is 'This Country', a mockumentary on BBC iplayer. I literally cry with laughter. 

What was your favorite/least favorite subject in High School? History or English/Graphic Design. It is far harder than it looks!

Who are some of your favorite YouTubers? I have so many and they include Aimee Song, Marianna Hewitt, Emma Hill, Lydia Elise Millen, Patricia Bright, Lizzy Hadfield, Barbara and Tara. Most of them also write amazing blogs so check those out too!

How would you describe your fashion sense? Parisian inspired, bright, eclectic and preppy. My looks are almost never trend focused. 

What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?) - iOS, definitely. Its just prettier.

So, I think that is all. 

I hope you enjoyed those, please let me know what you think in the comments. I'd love to know what your answers would be.

Love from Portobello.


Well hello there and welcome to my blog!

After starting a number of personal blogs and never quite being able to commit I optimistically decided on this one! And goodness let's hope it sticks!

'From Portobello with love' is a London fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog from the perspective of an inquisitive 20-something year old Londoner! Expect a lot of street style, lots of editorial shots and some of my own (I hope). There'll be womenswear and menswear though the majority will be the former as (yes, you guessed it!) im a woman!

Why Portobello? - well why not? It's a stunning section of the capital with a market which epitomises the ambience and the fluidity of London fashion. As do Shoreditch, Brixton, Chelsea, Peckham and the others! Point being it worked well for the purposes of the title but won't restrict the content. I promise!

What kind of brands will be featured? - I intend to feature a range of high street and high end brands. I will certainly try to mix it up!

So here we go and make sure to follow the blog on its social media platforms via the links at the side of the page x
