Jessica Riley

Hi, I’m Jess, 28 years old and based in Manchester, England.

I’ll spare you from whittling off my full CV, but for those interested, I’m a three-time graduate, graduating from Keele University with a 2.1 LLB (Hons) Law degree, completing the LPC with Commendation from the University of Law, and Distinction in MSc Marketing from the University of Salford.

An ex-legal eagle, I am now following my dreams and creating content for others to enjoy.

When I’m not working or blogging, you will usually find me near a (field) hockey pitch, sticking my nose into a good book or exploring the world.

I like acoustic covers of 90’s classics, anything sparkly and planning road trips. My favourite animals, apart from unicorns, are alpacas and I’m probably the clumsiest person you’ll ever meet.

Oh and pineapple definitely doesn’t belong on Pizza.

The Crown Wings –  UK Travel & Lifestyle Blog

Where did the name come from? Despite sounding a bit like your local pub, it actually came straight from my wardrobe. Whilst creating my blog I was wearing a sentimental necklace featuring a crown with wings. And so The Crown Wings was born.

Established in 2012, The Crown Wings was started as a way for me to document and share everything I love.

What do I love? Well, you can expect a right mix!

I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t have to compromise on living life to the fullest in order to have a career.

With this in mind, you can expect to see chatty lifestyle blog posts about the benefits of doing a masters degree alongside theatre reviews and travel blog posts.
