Alison Perry is a writer and podcaster based in London, where she lives with her husband, Mr. P, and their three children. She began her blog in 2011 with the goal of sharing her experiences as a new mother and providing advice and support to other mothers. Over time, her blog evolved to include topics such as travel, style, and opinion, all seen through the lens of motherhood.
Her work has been recognized and featured in various publications, including The Telegraph, Grazia, and Alex & Alexa. Perry was awarded the Best Blog Writer at the Gurgle Awards 2011 and her blog has been named Netmums Blog Of The Week and Mumsnet Blog Of The Day on multiple occasions.
Perry has a passion for travel and has written about her family's adventures, from luxury family hotels to caravan trips. She also shares her thoughts on fashion and style, promoting the idea that it's okay to play it safe and not always follow the latest trends. Perry is proud to fly the flag for women who embrace their curves and embrace their personal style. She has a love for a variety of things, including Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, posh candles, Beyoncé, bright colors, M&S, decent burgers, musicals, pretty stationery, nice hotels, H&M kidswear, photography, holidays, statement necklaces, Disney, her sofa, and Boden.
Despite her many interests, Perry admits to not being a fan of exercise and having a self-deprecating sense of humor, often referring to her tendency to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. She also shares the story of a traumatic haircut she received at the age of 19 that led to her flatmates calling her "Alan" for an entire year.
