About Me


lifestyle blog

My name is Alexandra, as you may have already guessed.

Love Alexandra

Love Alexandra is a Manchester based lifestyle blog covering everything from travel, beauty, style to mothering my chihuahua pup Lily, who will pop up to say hello, occasionally.


I was born and still live on the outskirts of Manchester. I love having the busy city on my doorstep yet I get to wake up in the countryside surrounded by fields and sheep (literally sheep, I once woke up with one in my back garden – no lie.)

I graduated from University with a degree in journalism and media and I have always loved to write. This is why Love Alexandra was created, to provide me with a creative space to doodle.

The things I love

First and foremost I love Manchester and all it has to offer, this includes the various restaurants, cocktail bars and events going on. I enjoy the luxury of having such an incredible city on my doorstep and I take full advantage of this – pornstar martini in hand.

Travelling is another love, one I wish to dedicate more time to. With a limited amount of annual leave, my bucket list is getting ticked off slower than I’d like. Prague is without a doubt my favourite city and I’m looking forward to ticking off more beautiful European cities, one weekend at a time.

I’m also an avid animal lover, giving up eating meat in my early twenties, hoping to make better lifestyle choices including what I consume, the way I live and the products I buy.

I love animal-friendly products and the people that dedicate their lives to ethical causes. It provides me with hope and inspires me to be a better human. I’m not perfect, no, but that’s okay, I know I’m trying and to me that’s gold.

Lastly, let’s not forget my love for lipstick, as expensive as it is, the habit can not be shaken.
