So who is Alright Blondie?
My actual name is Jess and I’m an almost 26 year old living in North Yorkshire with my husband and my dog. I was born and raised in North Yorkshire so I have a really strong accent and also happen to swear like a sailor (sorry about that). I work full time as an office administrator but outside of the office you’ll find me cuddled up on the sofa bingeing on box sets, hunched over my MacBook blogging away or exploring new corners of the globe.
How did Alright Blondie come to life?

In 2014 I was gearing up for the trip of a lifetime – a year in Australia – and I wanted to document my travels for myself and for my family. I’d already started reading the odd travel blog here and there so I thought hey, why don’t I start my own? And so Alright Blondie was born. I returned home in 2015 and since then Alright Blondie has had to evolve cos you can’t run a travel blog when you aren’t really travelling can you? From there I started to write about everything going on in my life, from the good to the bad to the ugly.

What can you expect to find on Alright Blondie?

Aswell as some insights into my life you’ll also a find a little bit of, well, everything! There’s restaurant reviews, beauty bits and bobs, film round ups, the odd bit of advice…And obviously there’s still some travel thrown in there for good measure.

And what’s with the name?

I really struggled to come up with a name for my blog but Alright Blondie just came to me one day and I’ve stuck with it. Being from Yorkshire we say ‘Alright’ instead of hello and I’m bleach blonde. Put em together and what do you get? (bippity boppety boo). One of my fave View songs is called Blondie too so there you go.

Some likes before we say goodbye?

Oooh okay – Thick cuddly knitted jumpers, potato and gravy based meals, that feeling you get when you arrive in a new city that you’ve never explored before, spending time with my adorable niece and nephew, Pepsi (my one true love), travelling all over the country to see The View perform live, watching re runs of my favourite shows, Yankee Candles, anything sparkly, getting all snuggled up with a good book..I could go on and on and on!

And I suppose that’s all you really need to know. If you have any questions  then feel free to email me or for an even quicker response, you can tweet me. If you’re a brand and want to work with me you will find the details here.

TTFN!
