She Loves London came to the city at the same time as the Olympics, only with a slightly less fancy opening ceremony.
Since 2012, I’ve been writing about the day-to-day intricacies of living, working and renting in this brilliant, annoying, expensive, frequently rainy, busy, surprising, stupid, beautiful-and-you-know-it city.
You won’t find much about London’s latest bars, clubs, exhibitions and openings here. What you will get is stories and observations about London life, reports from the occasional trip abroad, and whatever very good dogs I’ve seen on the bus that week.
That means no sponsored posts, weird PR / brand partnerships, or photos of me staring at my feet.
You in? Good. I also send a newsletter once a week. A bit of writing, some good things I’ve seen that week, and ideas for London at the weekend. Put your email address below, I’ll do the rest.
I’m Jo Harris-Cooksley. I live in east London, work in Farringdon, and grew up in Pinner, Zone 5. I love London, long haul flights, books, podcasts, putting my phone down, gigs, hip hop, Simon and Garfunkel, rum, and loose-leaf tea. Like most Londoners, I spend far too much money on rent, and seeing a dog on the tube will pretty much make my day.
