That’s me on the right, Gemma. This blog began in 2010 as a parenting blog, motherhood is my biggest adventure but it is also just one part of me and over the years helloitsgemma has evolved into a blog with lifestyle, home and travel themes.
I live in Bristol, with my partner and my son who was born in 2007. I am originally from South London and a proud Londoner. Bristol is my third city of residence, for some years we lived in the North of England. I love living in Bristol and I am a confirmed city dweller, my soul is in the country and the British Countryside is one of my great loves.
Things that make me happy; days out and travel, Zara (yes, the Spanish clothing store), sunshine, cafes and cake. Dislikes: meat, spiders, desiccated coconut and I’m not very good with lateness.
Why Helloitsgemma: What’s in a name.
“Helloitsgemma” is my introduction, it’s a reflection of how I speak, quickly, blurred together.
For several years I lived in the North of England, it is usual for people not to lock the doors to their houses if they are at home, as I let myself in, and in one breath, I’d shout: “helloitsgemma!”. Mostly, the next step involved the kettle going on. I like the kettle on.
While you are on this little space on the internet you are both in my home and I’m in yours.
This is a little space for me, a space for me to connect and share. You will find photographs and quality writing on a range of lifestyle themes. Check out the categories in the side bar for a taste.
I really enjoy reading comments and feedback. Please tell me what you think.
I’m happy to consider PR opportunities that compliment this blog; see ‘contact & disclosure’ and my ‘work with me’ pages. Please get in touch and we can have a chat.
