This is the first time I’m participating in Independent Fashion Bloggers’ weekly IFB project where the theme is ‘your neighbourhood’. I thought it was a good opportunity for me to take my shiny new camera into the outside world for something other than outfit posts!
The area I would consider my neighbourhood (Hillside, fact fans) is populated by a good mix of young professionals, young parents and old style Leithers. It’s older demography wise and more sedate than where I used to live near the university, while still having enough in the way of restaurants, pubs, shops, cafes and libraries (well, a library) to keep me entertained. It’s also really close to my work, and one of the few properly central areas where a bay windowed room is within the grasp of first time buyers. But what really struck me as I was wandering about is how green it is. There are trees on pretty much all the streets, loads of parks everywhere, and front gardens, whether overgrown abandoned ones or those of neatly manicured perfection, are full of flowers. And you know how I love flowers.
What do you like about your neighbourhood?
Happy weekend kittens!
