My name is Gabrielle (Gaby for short) Albon, I’m a 26 year old fashion design graduate working in the finance industry.
After graduating at 21 and having just moved into my own place, I needed a full time job to pay the bills and couldn’t afford to enter an unpaid internship in the fashion industry. So I took the first job I could get and ended up loving it! I work for one of the biggest UK insurers in the retirement solutions sector as a Business Improvement Officer (I’ll talk to you about pensions and equity release all day long).
I was born in Utah in the States, moved to the UK when I was six and have pretty much been here ever since! And no, I don’t have an American accent anymore – it’s as typically English as you can get due to spending most of my life living in Hertfordshire where we speak “The Queen’s English” 😉 I’m about thirty miles outside of London and love that I’m not living in the hustle and bustle of the city – I can’t think of anything worse!
I live with my husband (fishing fanatic) Aaron who I’ve been with since the age of 15. I won’t bore you with a cringy childhood sweetheart love story, but he’s my best friend and I love him a lot. You’ll notice he doesn’t appear in my posts or videos a lot as he’s a little bit camera shy when it comes to this blog – but get him catching a huge carp and he’ll be all up in that camera*eye roll*
I love to write and make people laugh so enjoy having a place where I can channel both of these passions (doesn’t the word “passion” sound so cringey and cliche? Sorry, I’m clearly a basic bitch that can’t think of a better word to describe my devotion to this blog). It’s become a whole new part of my life which I can’t imagine living without, so I’d like to thank *Gaby of the past* for being ever so clever in finding something that *present and future Gaby* enjoys so much.
