London Olympics kick starts businesses

Press Release   •   Aug 13, 2013 10:30 BST

London came into its own last year when the World tuned in
for the London Olympics. As businesses struggled to find their financial
successes from The Games, other business ventures where born.

The London Lifestyle blog, A London Thing, was born after a
witty twitter account, and the followers quickly grew.

Written by The London Princess, who lives in (yes you
guessed it) London, has proved to have quite an eye for discovering the best
bits of London by day and by night. Despite the name, the self proclaimed
London Princess has a humbling approach to her blog. In turn her honesty has
gained her a significant number of followers from all over the world. Due to
this success, and to keep up with demand, she has now had to leave her day job,
and is concentrating on her passion, London.

She says “In my previous job ,in the events industry,                                                                       I used to do a lot of international travel. 
When I would tell people I was from London, they would love to talk
about our Royal family,  The Olympic Games, and how great London is.                                   Asking me where to go when they visit.I soon became an unofficial ambassador to London and now I have a blog for them to find where best to go”

Since January 2012, The London Princess has reviewed everything
from fashion, beauty, bars and restaurants to the unique events taking place
across London. Also meeting many Celebrities along the way.

Her eye for high street fashion was recently tested, when a
blog post on The Duchess of Cambridge post baby outfit , caused a record number
of page hits.

“When people meet me in the street to ask where I’ve bought
my clothes from, and I’m only to happy to share my knowledge.”

So it´s not surprising that this business savy 30
something, has big plans, having recently launched a retail line to the blog.                                     (The London Thing Tote). Which is proving a big success, and receives orders from
all over the world.

She said “I saw a niche in the market, Macy’s in New York
created the Big Brown Bag, and London needed a bag for tourists and residents
alike. Further retail lines will follow in the near future.”
