About Me And My Blog

Hello there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet :)

My name's Laura and I'm a 20-something Northern lass living in South-East London with my husband Nick and our two cats Thor and Loki. By day I'm a PR officer for a responsible business charity, but by night I'm taking photos, tweeting and typing away on my blog, Cherry Soda.

Cherry Soda was born (under a different name) back in 2013 when I came back from eight months' backpacking and desperately needed something to write that wasn't a job application. Since then we've had some ups and downs along the way, but I've really enjoyed covering beauty, books, music, food, exhibitions and a little bit of fashion. This year I'm branching out into more gig reviews and trying to uncover some hidden gems in my part of the world.

When I'm not working or blogging, I spend my time reading, baking, sewing, listening to country music and drinking all the tea. I'm also working on my first novel but it's a bit of a slow process at the moment - watch this space for more news though...

Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the blog - I'll do my best to reply to them all! You can also email me at cherrysodablog@gmail.com or follow me on Twitter/Instagram/Snapchat @cherrysodablog.
