About

Welcome to Loving Living London! A blog developed simply to share my London love!

About me: I’m Clare! I started this blog 2 and a bit years ago, due to my absolute passion for London.  I live in North London, and have been working the last few years as an OT (occupational therapist) but like most people have done different things in my past and am accredited by the British Journalism Training Council (BJTC) following completion of a MA in Radio in 2005.

I was born in London, so returning as a student in 2005 felt like home.  It’s been 15 years this September, 2020, and it never grows old for me: the history, culture, anonymity, diversity, food choices, things to do…all of it! It’s beautiful, its vast and its ever changing.

The blog has had a few stops and starts, and deviations along the way, but its primary focus is to bring you individual London content. I’m about to have a baby, so there will also be an additional focus of “London mum” coming up!

Would love to hear from you on any of the posts and what you think, and particularly to know if you are influenced by anything I’ve shared, that would be really fab to know!

Thanks for stopping by,

Clare x
