Hi! My name is Monica Beatrice Welburn and I am a blogger, occasional presenter, and style lover.
The Elgin Avenue is named after a magnificent long road, in the area of London which I was lucky enough to call home for four years. I now live in a beautiful nook of the English countryside, a stone's throw away from London, where I can still get the perfect extra hot, dry, cappuccino, but with a little extra room to roam.
This is my space for sharing my personal style, beauty, love of interiors, travel and much more.

For those of you that follow me on Instagram, no doubt you’ll already know that I’ve spent the past couple of days in Paris. Escaping for a fleeting visit has been the most wonderful treat, and I returned to London today buzzing with all of the beauty and artistry of the city. I have so much to catch you guys up on from what I was doing in the city, but this morning I spent a few hours wandering the City, eyes on stalks, truly feeling the energy of Paris. I’ve put together a little photo diary of some of my favourite moments.
Lots more after the jump!

I’m back to work on the show tomorrow, I am so excited we are nearing the end of the series! In the mean time I’m going to put my feet up, probably sleep from 9pm and do my nails using my fancy new gismo from Sephora! Don’t you guys miss Sephora so much in the UK?!
