Why North Leads To Home?
Four years ago I moved North from London, where I lived with my parents, to study in Birmingham. I haven’t left, and I’ve made the city my new home.
About North Leads To Home:
This blog began in October 2012 when I put my interest (and degree!) in creative writing and my life long enchantment with interior design together. Since then, this blog has grown! With posts on home décor, travel, lifestyle and Birmingham, North Leads To Home is now a blog focussed on what makes a life lovely.
I studied an English with Creative Writing BA at Birmingham City University, and finished with a 2.1 overall and a first in my dissertation. While completing my BA degree I took a home study Diploma in Professional Interior Design at the National Design Academy. I shared my experience of the course on my blog, as well as some of my assignments if you would like to have a peek at them.
Right now, I’m studying for an Online Journalism MA at Birmingham City University. I I’ve recently moved with my best friends to live in a rented maisonette flat, which we’re still in the process of decorating!
When I’m not blogging for North Leads To Home, I also write for Eastside, a news blog for the community living and working in the new Eastside development in Birmingham. I’m also the Editorial Intern at Period Living magazine, a beautiful publication centred around period homes and decor.
