London is for Living is a London lifestyle blog written by me, Carla, about my life in London. I’ve lived in London my entire life and still enjoy exploring the city at every possible opportunity. I spend a lot of time walking around London, visiting museums, markets and art galleries and eating plenty of breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and dinners along the way.
In my spare time I love to cook, bake and make cocktails (especially avocado pasta and french toast). Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved taking random ingredients out of the cupboard and mixing them together to see what would happen.
I’ve written a blog in some shape or form for the last ten years. It all started because I loved to write; now I’m interested in typography, responsive design and how to code. Blogs are an incredible resource and can provide an insight into how others live around the world – I love learning about life in different cities.
During the day I work in the property industry, managing the marketing, PR and social media for a residential and commercial property group. I love my job (not just because of the monthly massages and reflexology sessions, although that helps!) because the digital world we live in means there is always a whole lot of new stuff to learn. Occasionally I’ll post a blog on here that’s vaguely related to the sector – they can be found in the Tech Tuesday category.
If it’s your first time here why not help yourself to a glass of iced tea on my virtual porch? If you’re interested in moving to London then you might find this series of guest posts about daily life in London helpful. Here’s me moaning about breaking my leg and don’t forget to check out all my Friday night cocktail recipes too!
The Internet is a community and I love it when people get in touch. If you have anything you want to say about the blog or want to ask a question or two about life in London please contact me, I’d love to help. Alternatively just leave a comment or tweet me and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
