Oh, hi!

I’m Aimee, I’m 30 and I live in South London. That sounds like I’m introducing myself on Blind Date, doesn’t it? Luckily, I don’t need TV bosses to work their magic, as I’ve got myself a lovely little family already: my husband, Ashley— a death metal vocalist who lives for music and loves a new business venture; and our son, B— a five-year-old who loves Star Wars and pretending to be a train driver, is trying his very best to wear me down to get a pet Husky and has a bizarre obsession with watching ‘Gummy vs. Real’ videos on YouTube.  What a guy.

And then there’s me! I’m creative and very much a homebody, with a penchant for handbags, cosmetics and biscuits. Seriously, can we talk about biscuits for a second? A Bourbon or a Milk Chocolate Hobnob may very well be the way to my heart, especially if it’s accompanied by a sweet, milky brew to dunk it in.  Delicious.

I’d choose a night in with a great film and a bowl of hot, fresh popcorn over a night out out; sweet over savoury; high-street over high-end; and Summer over Winter. I’m partial to photography, graphic design, glitter (and just about anything that sparkles, to be honest), romcoms, sunny beach holidays and baking!

I create wall art and greetings cards at Designed by Aimee Marie, when I’m not at my day job as a Learning & Development Manager (or asking B to put his shoes on ready for school 289 times before it’s done.)

AimeeMarie.com was founded way (way) back in 2005, as a place for me to house my photography portfolio. Over the years, it’s grown with me, as I combined it with the blog I’d had on other platforms, to become the family & lifestyle blog you see in front of you today. It’s evolved into a concoction of all the things I love, see, do and think about; one day I’m ranting about the pressure to have a second child, then the next I’m sharing photos from a mummy date or writing about my favourite things!

I hope you’ll stick around and say hi!
