Hi there! Thank you for stopping by.
I’m Ellie, I’m 27 years old and I’m a Londoner through and through. After a couple of year-long stints in Paris, eating all the boulangeries out of croissants, wearing nautical tops and growing a moustache, I’ve now settled in London, doing lots of eating, playing and living alongside my proper job in TV journalism. I work for ITV News which gives me less time than I would like for blogging and for that reason, my Pinterest and Instagram pages are your best bets for up-to-date clues as to my goings on. 
I started this blog in October 2012 as a way to gather good places to eat, visit and travel to as well as favourite films, plays and exhibitions. For me, it’s an open journal which helps me document the things I get up to and so it’s useful to me in that way; if it is in any way helpful or interesting to you then that’s an added bonus.

Any feedback please email me at eatplaylivewithme@gmail.com. Please note than unless otherwise stated, I pay for all my meals, hotels, flights and exhibitions myself so that my judgement is not compromised when reviewing.

I moved on from Lumix GF6 in August 2016 and now use a Lumix GX80 which I now use for the majority of my photos. I own the copyright to all of the images on this blog, so needless to say – please do not reproduce them anywhere else without my permission.

Much love,

Ellie x
