Meet Jasmine, the London fashion blogger who sticks to all the stereotypes by having strong affection towards avocado on toast, Zara and all things marble.

We met with the London fashionista and chatted about her approach to friendships and London’s best kept secret.

 

What kind of qualities do you look for in a friend?

They need to be kind, caring but most of all – fun. I’m really silly and love having a good giggle so I need someone that’s going to join in without much persuasion!

 

What’s the best way to make friends in London?

I must admit, it is difficult but I think by pushing your boundaries and going to new places / trying new hobbies is a great way to make new friends. And, of course…friendrequest..

 

How has friendrequest changed your approach to making friends?

Friend request is genius and I couldn’t be more grateful for it. It’s so difficult to find friends in London, especially as a self employed person, and so I’m so glad it’s given me a platform to find like-minded people.

 

What activities do you usually do when you meet with friends in London?

I’m rather cliche and tend to grab a coffee or brunch with friends. That way I can combine two of my passions; hanging out with friends and eating haha. If not that, I often like going for a long walk and just talking – Southbank is perfect for that.

 

What do you love most (and least) about London?

I love that you never struggle for something to do, there’s always something new and exciting popping up. What I don’t like so much is how expensive it can all be! But fear not, there’s lots of cheap – and even free – stuff to do in London too.

 

What’s London’s best kept secret?

Despite being a big bustling city, there’s lots of quiet spots in London and also lots of green. My favourite place to visit is Little Venice because it genuinely feels like another world!
