So after being in construction for nearly a month, welcome to Harlem Loves re-envisioned!
In my 'Everything's changing' post I mentioned the need to simplify. So this is it, the first step towards that and reconnecting my blog with the evolving viewpoint of a 30-something year-old pursuant of an abundant life, but what does that mean?

Launched October 29, 2008 Harlem Loves is an eclectic life and style blog run by Londoner, Erica "Harlem" Rutherford.
The "style-stalking, literature-loving, people-perusing, music-monitoring, art-appreciating, gadget-gazing, tresstastic blog", as the title suggests, covers the many things Harlem loves.
With her first byline appearing in the Observer aged 12, Harlem's media career has spanned 20 years and includes working for Virgin Media, BBC and Pride Magazine.
Today, Harlem is a freelance social media consultant helping businesses build their online presence (clients include Virgin Media and ADRA-UK) and co-owns Love Harlem natural hair care which she founded with her sister.
She's Harlem by name rather than location.
Harlem is in fact a nickname given to her by a friend one day.
Her curly do was vintage enough to remind him of the Harlem Renaissance and so from that day on she became affectionately known as Harlem.
"Harlem Loves is one of those blogs which brings out the real beauty in things... but also embraces Harlem's own inner geekery. Very rarely do I leave Harlem Loves without feeling inspired..."

Please note, I only ever blog things I genuinely love so whilst I can promise to credit everything I publish, I'm afraid I can't promise to publish everything submitted but I'll do my best... especially if it's really good x
