Hi! I’m Ally. A 30-something, luxury travel, life and fashion blogger from Leeds.
Half-girlie girl, very interested in style // half geeky tech lover.
‘Luxury’ because there’s plenty of designer labels and fine dining…but there’s also a lot of high street and fast food! Gotta have balance!
I find it hard to classify myself I guess as a luxury blogger because I think it’s actually just middle-class. It’s all relative, isn’t it? What some others might view as luxury, I see as normal…what I view as luxury, others view as normal.
Maybe it’s better to class me as a ‘blogger with expensive tastes’.
I blog because I’m over-sharer. If I posted all this stuff on Facebook my friends would quickly get bored, so I figure this is a good outlet for my ramblings. Some of you seem to like it…and even read it, so I’ve kept going. I’ve been doing it for a few years now and fit it in when I can around my full time job. It can be challenging, but I do love it.
Why Travel & Fashion?
Simply, I love travelling to beautiful places (don’t we all?!) and I like to look good! I’ve been interested in style and fashion since my teen years. I’d go to a small shop in York (where I lived at the time) and would love browsing through the rails of designers clothes. My first was a ridiculous top by Versace. I hardly wore it because I was so afraid of getting it damaged, but I loved it. These days, my lusts cover everything from clothing, shoes and bags. My style has evolved over the years, but my addiction to shopping has not. Occasionally I try to curb it, but mostly I think it’s a good excuse to have a fashion blog!
Blogging in Leeds
Leeds has been my home town for over 10 years and before that I lived in York for 10 years. I’m proud to be a Yorkshire girl and many of my ‘eating out’ blog posts focus on restaurants in the Leeds area.
There are some amazing lifestyle/food/fashion bloggers here in Leeds and actually across the whole of the UK. I’m continually inspired by them. You can check out just a few of my favourites here: Blogs I Love
Hope you enjoy this luxury travel, interiors and fashion blog as much as I enjoy chattering on about things I like! Tell me if you want to see more of anything in particular.
