Welcome to my blog,

I constantly read London blogs by girls who seem to have it all. They live somewhere townhouse-esque with a Notting Hill postcode, have an unlimited wardrobe of amazing clothes, only travel by taxi and have perfectly blow dried hair. I usually find it entertaining to read about their glamorous lives but sometimes it can just be plain depressing (especially in sad, wet, poor January!). So I’ve decided to start my own blog, as a real twenty something living in London.

This blog is going to be a real life account of London living.

So let’s set the scene:

Here I am. 

  • I’m Little London Girl, 28 years old, Claphamite (South London for those who don’t know). 
  • I earn a pretty decent wage, but sadly due to the expense of London life this means I live in a cramped house share with 3 other girls (and one bathroom, I might add).
  • My fridge rarely has more than some mouldy cheese and a munch bunch yoghurt. 
  • I spend all my money on bills leaving only a small budget for what I do best: eating out and drinking cocktails. I constantly crave the uni days of a nice loan appearing in your account every few months which you could blow in Topshop on some lovely new clothes (oh and books, I bought some books too honest). 
  • I have a boyfriend, let’s call him DG. I found him on It’s all very modern this dating malarkey in London. 
  • I love body combat, body attack, body pump – any gym class with the word “body” involved. Fitness First is my friend and my enemy, for January we have been good friends. 
  • I’m jealous of my non-London living friends who are buying 4 bed houses and paying mortgages less than my rent. Jealous, and bitter.
Ok that’s enough about me, nosy!

Living in London is awesome, it must be otherwise why would so many of us be putting ourselves through such stressful commutes and fights over shared fridges.

This blog is about real London life with all it's fun and troubles. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Don't necessarily believe everything you read on some blogs, there can be a lot of smoke and mirrors going on.

    Real London life is much more interesting.

  2. That's what I'm hoping Lisa! Thanks for stopping by x

  3. Nice to see another everyday Londoner blogging a 'real' life, like you is all I seem to come across is London bloggers who seem to live the most perfect life that we all wish we had the luxury of
