Hey, welcome! I’m guessing you are wondering what to expect from Gin & Biscuits and who the person writing it is… You’ve come to the right place.

Alright, let’s start with an introduction. My name is Kristina and I live in London. I moved here in 2013, which is about a year after I started this blog (which at the time was called something else that I can’t remember).

I’m 25 and am one of those millennial/gen z hybrid people, or at least that’s what I like to think. What this means is, I am young enough to not remember much of the 90s and am yet to own a credit card, but also old enough to really struggle with TikTok dances and have to google new words my younger cousins use (don’t tell them that, they still think I’m cool somehow!) 

I’ve always loved writing, so much so that I went and got myself Masters in Journalism. And of course, started this the blog. Gin & Biscuits is a space where I share my passions with you, and hopefully, inspire you to live a better, happier life. I share tips about creating a life abroad, caring for your skin, travelling well and leading a more sustainable and earth-conscious life.

I hope you enjoy the ride!

Brand collabs are great, and I only work with those I genuinely like and use myself. I sometimes receive samples from brands, and when I feature them over here, I make sure they are marked with an Asterix (*) and disclosed. I also make sure that it is clear when a post is sponsored, or when I am using affiliate links. If we are all honest, the world would be a better place 🙂

      Ha Ha, well, don’t hate me because my name is Kristina. But I like the sound of Kaya. And it just happened to become the name of my blog. 🙂

    You are too sweet haha, thanks 🙂
    I love how I can choose whatever name for the Internet, it makes things so much fun 🙂 Not that I don’t like my own name, because I do. It’s just fun 😛

    Gin and Biscuits – that’s an advanced name for a blog, to make it fun, I’d call it: Gin and Cookies!
