Name: London

Blog Name: London, Like the city

Nickname: Lond, Londy, Londo, Londonbridges

Why did you start blogging? I first started food blogging in college, but then realized I wanted a creative outlet to document and share all of my interests, fun projects and favorite things.

How did you come up with the name, ‘London, Like the City’?  I wanted a blog name that tied to my own name so it could grow with me as my focus and interests changed. I end up having to say “like the city” all the time when meeting new people or ordering coffee, so it stuck .

What has been the highlight of your blogging career so far? All of the creative friends and people I’ve met that I never would have came across without the blog world! I also got to attend some fun events this year, like the LuckyFABB Conference and Bloguettes workshop. And of course, getting to collaborate with cool brands I love is always exciting.

Where do you get your inspiration? Pinterest, long drives, the beach.

What is the mantra for your blog? “London, Like the City” is a San Diego-based healthy lifestyle diary that celebrates everything from food and DIY projects to stylized living and holistic health. It’s a creative place to document my interests, inspiration, and journey to finding balance & purpose as a twenty-something!
