Alright Blondie is ran by me, Jess, a 26 year old Yorkshire lass with a penchant for swearing, ice cold cans of Pepsi and cacti. I live in the third smallest city in England in a teeny tiny house with my not so tiny husband (Jody) and our Staffordshire bull terrier (Bruce – he is my pride and joy). I work full time as an office administrator for a construction company and blog when it’s quiet at work or on a weekend.
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.
Anything and everything. This is a general lifestyle blog and the chances of me narrowing my categories down and finding a niche are slim to none. So if you want a perfectly honed, themed kinda blog then you are in the wrong place…But if you are nosy and want a messy, chaotic glimpse into someone elses life? Then pull up a pew. Love, money, careers, beauty, food, family, adventure…You name it, I’ve probably written about it.
Even though my content is varied, my number one favourite things to write are reactive think-pieces but usually I bottle out of pressing publish and send them to the trash pile – In 2018 I want to grow some balls and share them without second guessing myself so definitely expect more of them!
Alright Blondie is for everyone but mainly for the people who go to the gym but reward themselves by swinging by McDonalds for a double cheeseburger after. For those who would love to own their own home one day but also happen to have an ASOS addiction that they can’t quite shake. For those who love a cosy night in with family but also enjoy the occasional cider soaked evening in the pub with friends. People who care about politics and feminism and the privatisation of the NHS but also want to find the best place to eat a roast dinner in Yorkshire, are on hunt for the perfect mauve pink liquid lipstick (Kat Von D’s lovecraft fyi) and love wearing mom jeans, faux fur coats and knitted jumpers.
