Hello and welcome to Words by Gemm.

I’m Gemm, a young woman in my early twenties living in the West Midlands.

What started as a personal lifestyle blog in the summer of 2017 has now morphed into a space about shopping, personal style and consumerism with the occasional life musings thrown in.

I’ve always had a love of writing, fashion, clothes, shopping and as I got older gained an interest in social science. As someone who enjoys expressing themselves and their interests I’ve found blogging to be the perfect medium.

My aim for this blog is to share my experiences, advice and things I’ve learnt along my journey so far. Whether it’s tips for shopping second hand, a guide to decluttering your closet or sharing my latest purchases from a local, small or black owned business. I also delve into the hot topics of fast fashion, sustainability and minimalism.

Outside of this blog you can find me on twitter and Instagram @wordsbygemm

I’m open to collaborations so feel free to get in touch via email: wordsbygemm@gmail.com
