Hello and welcome to Miranda’s Notebook! I’m Miranda. I moved to London in my late teens, having lived in France and the USA before, and I’ve never looked backed. London is an amazing city, and I love documenting my life here on this blog. I write about my style philosophy, favourite London haunts, adventures further afield, great books, tried and tested recipes and more. A big part of my blog is about finding the joy in simple pleasures, and I always hope that reading one of my posts adds a little bit of happiness to your day.

I love to interview inspiring creatives on my blog, as well as on my weekly podcast, Tea & Tattle, which I co-host with my best friend Sophie. You can learn more about Tea & Tattle here.

Every Wednesday, I send out a virtual Postcard from London to my email subscribers. The postcards describe a great new discovery or favourite place in London – perfect if you love London as much as I do! You can get them landing in your inbox by popping your email address in here:

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you’d like to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you. I always respond to emails from readers.

  • Nice to see another Miranda bloger (I am usually called Mira, Mia or Myra-(Bev = boo’s name) Love your blog

  • Miranda – I love the artwork on your blog so much! Did you paint the graphics?

    • Thanks very much Holly! I commissioned the illustrations, based on photographs I chose. Unfortunately, my experience with the person I hired to do them was so unprofessional and unpleasant that I couldn’t in good conscience ever recommend them. I am very thankful to have these illustrations as part of my blog though, and I’m so glad you like them too! xxx

      • That’s rubbish. I am saving up some pennies to pay someone to come and do some artwork on my blog. I might ask my friend Kim to do it for me though?

      • Yours are so pretty. It really is one of the prettiest blogs that I have seen x

  • Came over today after seeing your comment on my friend Cornflower’s weblog. She and I have known each other for 35 years now and I always take a quick look at other weblog owners that comment on her pages. In your case I think it will be more than a quick look! Love your style.
