Ghenet Actually || About Me

Oh hey! Iโ€™m Ghenet! Welcome to my blog!

I’m a thirty-something {eek!} New Yorker turned Londoner, and a life and style blogger!

I fell into blogging by accident, really. After picking up my life and moving to a brand new country where I was unemployed and I didn’t know anyone, I needed a creative outlet. I thought a blog would be a good idea and I was right! It was a greatย idea!ย Not only was it an amazing creative outlet (and a fun reason for me to get out of bed), but what it really did was to help me find my tribe, my girl gang, and most importantly, MYSELF!

You’ll find blog post about how I style clothes for my 5’2, size 18 body, my favorite recipes to make, the ways in which I’m always looking to improve my life, and topics I feel are important to discuss. As always, there’s happiness at the heart of it (though still with American spellings because I can’t cope with all the extra ‘u’s!)

I’ve had the chance to work with some great brands, including Habitat, Paperchase, West Elm, Joanie Clothing, Sugarhill Brighton and Happy Socks!

It can be a little scary to share so much on the internet, but at a time when I was lonely and lost, this blog was a friend with a listening ear. But that’s the wonderful thing about it… These are more than just blog posts. What you’ll find here is my chance to reach out and say, ‘HEY! You’re not alone in this crazy thing called life!’

When I’m not scribbling down ideas for blog posts or hunting down oh-so-instagrammable corners of London, you can find me curled up on the couch next to my husband with a good book and a cup of tea (Or a glass of wine… I’m only human!). Our one-eyed cat Rex will likely be begging for treats, and there’s a 99.7% chance I’ll have just lit a scented candle and turned on some fairy lights!

It’s cozy, it’s content… It’s just… me, actually!

Here are a few posts you might enjoy!

Ads, Sponsored Posts & Gifts

Guys, I want to be totally upfront and fully transparent. As I mentioned above, I do occasionally work with brands. You can rest assured though, that any brand I’m working with is one I love already, and would have no qualms about spending my hard earned dollar on! Opinions are my own, no matter what payment I’ve received to promote a product or brand.ย When a post is sponsored or an ad, I will always include a disclaimer under the first image of the post. Brand collaborations are really amazing, but they have to be genuine!
