STYLE IN YOUR CITY // A NEW SERIES

It's no secret that I love Bristol, not only has it just been awarded European Green Capital 2015, but it's such a vibrant city and a great place to raise kids. Whether it's the creative quarter and street art of Stokes Croft, the beautiful Georgian architecture and tree lined streets of Clifton, the buzzing harbourside, the galleries, art house cinema, eclectic shops and huge coffee culture – which I swear I personally fund! – there's something for everyone.For me it holds a piece of my heart, it's the place I made great friends, made our home, gave birth to my boy, and the surroundings in which I watch him grow. I love exploring the city with F and even though I've lived here for almost seven years, it seems there is always something new to discover.I really enjoy sharing the places that inspire me both here and on Instagram and Twitter – I'm big on over sharing in case you hadn't noticed – and in a bid to discover new places I've teamed up with Fritha from Tigerlilly Quinn to start a new linky and see where you live and love.

So how does it work? 

We want you to #StyleYourCity, to showcase the places you love, the coffee you drink, the fashion you wear, the street art you see, the people you meet, your finds for the home. We want to see your City/town/village through your eyes, we want to make a community which shares inspiration and creativity from all around and in turn, creates a cool directory of places to see and do.

We will be running a linky every two weeks and choosing a theme to inspire your finds. Don't worry you don't have to have a blog to join in or live in a bustling city for that matter, simply use the hashtag #styleinyourcity on twitter and/or IG with a photo and tag @wildandgrizzly and @tigerlillyquinn and we'll pick our favourites to showcase on our blogs.

You can find me on Instagram here and twitter here.
You can find Frith on Instagram here and twitter here.

This first theme is The Place I Call Home, tell us where you are and what it means to you. I can't wait to learn more and be inspired by you!
