The Street Where I Live

EG_11

If you haven’t heard of Alexandra King’s beautiful blog The Street Where I Live, you should immediately check it out. It’s has two regular features that I absolutely love and it reads as professionally as a glossy magazine. Alexandra lives in New York and I love following her Instagrams of her life. One of these blog features goes by the same name of the blog called “The Street Where I Live” interviewing people from around the world around about their unique homes and what their street means to them; and the other one is Thought Pharmacy, where Alexandra prescribes advice to anyone who writes in a letter. She suggests way in which to make them to feel better by offering a recommended song, an activity, a movie, a book, a poem. It’s such a lovely idea. She writes beautifully and I’m a huge fan of her blog and her ideas. One of my favourites is 29 things I’ve learned in my 20s. Go grab a cup of tea and get lost in her words.

When she asked if I wanted to be in her The Street Where I Live series I was so excited and happy! She’s covered people from all around the world, including Mexico City, Baltimore, Somerset….and now little old Hackney.

I chat London life, happiness, careers, home-life, food, friends, cafés and my favourite things to do in my spare time.
