Welcome to Lifestyle District. the Bristol-based culture and lifestyle blog by Franco-British duo Dan & Nina. Always on the look out for the latest exhibition or the tastiest meals in Bristol and beyond, we wanted to share our culinary adventures and cultural discoveries in a blog. For us both, curiosity is more than a state of mind; it’s a way of life!
With a passion for food, cultural events and photography and a decade of experience in international advertising and marketing, Nina knows the power of a good picture. Her love of photography took a new turn when she discovered film photography with a Nikon FM2 offered by a friend. Nowadays she uses mostly digital photography as it’s an easier way to share and edit pictures rapidly. Nina turns her photography into handmade lightboxes which she sells through her company, BristolInABox.co.uk.
