About me

Hello my name is Louise and I live in Putney.
Where better to be based for tales and tips on London living?


Let’s bore you with my back story….

I was born in Wiltshire, raised in Sussex until I was 10, and then moved to Basel in Switzerland. At 17 I moved out and travelled around India, Australia and SE Asia. After a couple of years I returned to the UK and studied English Literature at Newcastle University. Following graduation I had a short stint up north as an outdoor instructor, after which I finally settled in good ol’ Putney and began working in marketing.

Now, after 18 months of living in London, I work for a little design and publishing company just down the road in Wandsworth. I cycle to work everyday with my packed lunch in tow, although I have to admit when it’s bucketing it down I do hop on the bus, and I have been known to buy a meal deal on occasion.

Both activities should, of course, be rounded off by an evening in the pub. I like to jump around like a maniac at a good live gig or festival too, but then it’s also nice to relax outside on our “deck” (as I like to call it) and listen to some dub or Led Zep and look at the night sky.
