Hailing from Plymouth I’m a Janner through and through, but Cornwall has a special place in my heart. I love everything to do with the South West, having lived, studied and worked there my whole life…until now.

In June 2016 I relocated to Christchurch, New Zealand, with my boyfriend Ross. Since we arrived we have been exploring the South Island; but now that we’ve settled in a new apartment and into new jobs, it’s time to make the most of our new city and home.

Having worked in digital marketing and social media for the past few years I decided I wanted to create a blog of my own as a creative outlet; BLONDER was born.

Why BLONDER? As one huge fan of Country and Western music I took inspiration from Miranda Lambert and her song ‘Platinum’. In it she sings ‘what doesn’t kill you, only makes you blonder’; if you’ve not heard it before, listen to it, you’ll be toe-tapping in no time and reaching for the hair dye.

Props to my Editor in Chief/proof reader extraordinaire, Alice. #FYA
