About Me

Ghenet Actually || About Me

I’m Ghenet and welcome to my blog! I’m a born and bred New Yorker living in London! I’m a big personality with even bigger hair! I still unapologetically spell things the American way, because I just can’t cope with all those extra ‘u’s! It’s hard to overcome 27 years of habit! This is my life: a little bit of London with a slice of New York!

I’m very happily married, and Mr. Actually and I live nice and cozy in a flat in South London with our very naughty one-eyed cat, Rex! In my free time (when I’m not lounging on the couch with a cup of tea and a book that is) I like to go exploring in this wonderful city! I love to cook for the people I love (especially cakes!). take bubble baths, and daydream about all the places I hope to visit!

Ghenet Actually || About Me

Ghenet Actually started as a way to be creative when I first moved to the UK and was unemployed (and a little bit lonely). I’v had a blog in some form for a few years, but only in recent years has it turned into what you see now! I’ve fallen in love with blogging and creating content for people to read! These days, I’m just trying to live my best curly haired, glasses wearing, size 16, silly, quirky, colorful life!

A few T’s & C’s

Guys, I want to be totally upfront with you and be fully transparent. I’m asking you to trust me and my opinions, and we’re building a relationship, am I right? Everything I post about is 100% me. My opinions, products and brands I genuinely love, and things I’d have no problem spending my hard earned cash on. That being said, there are a few things I should mention. Opinions are my own, and unless otherwise stated, all items featured have been purchased with my own hard earned pound sterling.

Sponsored Posts & Gifts

When it comes to sponsored posts, or anything where I’ve worked with a brand, I will always include a disclaimer, whether in the title, or under the first image of the post. Brand collaborations are genuinely really amazing, but they have to be genuine. If you see something on my blog, and it doesn’t seem natural or organic, well, I’ve not done it right then, have I? I am very particular about the brands I work with, that they suit my lifestyle and my taste. If such a partnership arises and I’m sharing content on the blog, it’ll be marked clearly.

Sometimes, I’m sent gifts, and they may appear on the blog. Anything that has been gifted to me, I’ll be sure to let you know by listing it as c/o (courtesy of) the brand, if not stated outright in the post itself that it was a gift. I want to be honest and upfront about things! If I don’t like an item, you won’t see it on the blog. Period. Opinions are still all my own!
