Love Audrey started life as a beauty blog in the summer of 2009 when I was heavily pregnant with my second child. Over time it has developed into a journal of sorts, a place where I document my daily life for all to see. I used to talk about lipstick a lot – and I still do a little – but I also share the recipes that fuel us, the places that inspire us and anything else that has made me smile.


You may have already guessed my name isn’t Audrey, though I seek to emulate the grace and elegance of my idol. My name’s actually Franky. Technically it’s Frances, but I’ve done my best to shrug that one off in recent years. It is never, ever Fran.


As a freelance writer based in Bristol, I work from home amidst the chaos created by my two children, Izzy and Jesse. My husband Carl is a freelance film maker with a passion for Star Wars, Street Fighter and converse trainers. I am a lover of old books and old films, red lipstick, pretty dresses and high heels.


Love Audrey is an honest account of my life and I take a ‘warts n’ all’ approach to what I write, though I do my best to sprinkle things with a little sophistication and style wherever possible.


Through the snippets of my life I share on these pages you’ll hopefully find inspiration for recipes, beauty, fashion, decor and life in general. Like Dita, I advocate glamour every day, every minute. I don’t always manage it, but I hope you’ll enjoy watching me try.


Love, Franky xxx
