About


Love - Shack - Baby is the creative outlet of former professional copywriter, Lottie Gittins, a woman recently married to a sexy/kind/funny beast, and expecting her first baby.

... And that's enough of speaking in the third person.

My name is Lottie, and I love to write. In another life, I lived in London, and wrote about my experiences on (quite) successful blog, Smudgeness, whilst also working in content for the likes of Harvey Nichols and De Beers diamonds. I loved London, but also sometimes disliked it, because while it's an amazing and eye opening and endlessly exciting place, goodness me does it drain your finances and your ability to produce normal coloured snot when you inevitably catch a cold from someone that put their armpit in your face on the tube. Through the ups and downs, the best thing to come from my London dwelling was, without doubt, meeting my now husband, who is incredible and kooky and makes a great cup of tea.

Together, we moved to Manchester, and in-between both running our own successful businesses,  renovated a cottage, added two dogs to our household (that already contained two cats) got engaged in our dining room, got married in a nearby barn, and decided to have a baby. Said baby is a little boy, and we can't wait to meet him.

On this blog I will most likely be writing about my marriage (hence Love), about our home life (hence Shack) and about pregnancy and parenthood (hence Baby) - probably some other bits too, though we'll just have to wait and see. Creative outlets tend to take on a life of their own in a way copywriting never could, and I'm excited to be writing for myself again

Oh and, let's be honest, the blog title is also a reference to the song Love Shack, which was the name of a club night at my favourite Friday night hang as a late teen, and which will always have a special place in my heart.
