Hello hello! Thank you so much for stopping by!
My name’s Monica, and I’m the girl behind the blog.
I live in a nook of the English countryside with my now-husband Oli (we got married in Menorca in 2019 and it was DREAMY), and I have an obsession with cushions.
I’ve been blogging since 2011, which in digital years is around 34983?!
I love sharing all kinds of things with you . . . from interiors, to skincare, wellbeing and travel.
I like to take a holistic approach.
There are so many things we can do every day which add up to a lovelier life.
It’s not about leading a ‘perfect life’ – not at all!
But making things a little bit prettier, or a bit more enjoyable IS do-able and that’s my sweet spot.
I hope you’ll enjoy perusing the blog! There is LOTS to explore here.
If you fancy getting to know a bit more about me, there’s the long-length bio below, otherwise recharge your mug/glass (no judgement! ☕️????!) and enjoy a peruse of The Elgin Avenue!
A little bit more about me . . .
After four years living in London I made a big lifestyle shift, and moved to the countryside where I now live with my husband Oli. I wrote about my experience leaving London here, and for one of my favourite sites The Everygirl too.
In my work life – I wear a few different hats . . .
Since 2011 I have been blogging (like I said, OG over here ????????), and after graduating from the London College of Fashion in 2013 I went full-time with my site.
And finally (promise the list stops here!), I create content for a handful of amazing small businesses.
Fancy saying HI ?????????!
If you have any questions at all about the blog, or anything you’d like to reach out about, please do get in touch.
I’d love to hear from you ❤️????
Thanks again for stopping by!
Love, Monica x
