I always hate writing these ‘About Me’ pages because they always feel like a dating profile. But here goes- I’m Amanda Bootes and I’m a 25 year old Gluten Free Food, Fitness and Lifestyle Blogger from Kent, although you can mostly find me eating my way across London and trying to find the most unique and colourful cocktail bars or listening to Country music and eating nachos.

I created my blog amandabootes.co.uk back in November 2014 after missing the creative process of writing and expressing myself. I actually had a secret blog a year before that while working as a pastry chef in Eze, Nice- France where I shared my recipes and experiences from working and living abroad, this has been well and truly hidden from the internet now, so good luck trying to find it.

I’m currently working in PR but working towards becoming a full-time blogger again after briefly doing it for 6 months freelance and absolutely loved it.

So what can you expect from amandabootes.co.uk?
There will be lots of simple yet tasty recipes- alongside fitness and life tips and tricks.
But ultimately it will just be the ramblings of a girl trying to stumble through life.

Expect mess, drama, love, laughter and the occasional tear.



As I’m trying to make this blog my full-time job, there may be the occasional advertisement/paid post or gifted products pop up from time to time. But all content will only be shown because I genuinely love the product or the company.

I promise that I will never upload something that I wouldn’t purchase myself or something I don’t believe in.
