My name is Bryony I live in grey and gorgeous east London with my husband and bulldog, Muffin.  This blog started when I was 19 just before I began my degree in fashion design. I graduated in 2014 and now run luxury lifestyle and fashion brand North Polar Bear.

The blog has suffered some serious neglect over the past couple of years but I’m back at it for 2017 and looking forward to sharing my adventures with you.

    Hi Bryony!
    I just recently graduated college with my journalism concentration in hopes of pursuing a career in the fashion world so I decided to start my blog. Yours is literally amazing! Do you have any tips or criticism on how to try and create a successful fashion blog on wordpress? I would really appreciate your feedback, thoughts and opinions.

    p.s. I really do love your blog.

      Hey Fe,
      Thanks for getting in touch! I’ve recently got back into blogging after neglecting it for about a year (whoops!!) But for a career in the industry would say intern where you can and don’t be afraid to contact companies you admire directly rather than looking on interning websites. Use who you know – if a cousin has a cousin who works at the local paper ask if you can sit down with them for a coffee and to get some advice – you never know what will come from putting yourself out there and showing how keen you are. These meetings and experiences always make for great blog content too.

      Above all blog about what you’re passionate about and try and keep your personality in the blog because that’s what makes it unique to you.

      Hope this helps and stay in touch!
