About the author

I’m a freelance writer, blogger and PR assistant. Moving to the Big Smoke at 18 to intern my way through London’s best publications, I made cups of tea and charmed editors at various titles including Nuts magazine (where I assisted with the launch of the grooming page on Nuts.co.uk) and Easy Living. When at AXM, I was given the ropes to write content including compiling luxury beauty features and working on inspiring pieces for the sister-site, Pufta.co.uk

Having moved back to my hometown in County Durham to return to education, I took courses in Philosophy, Media Studies and English Language which I gained 2 distinctions and 1 merit in. I then upped sticks again and settled in Nottingham, this time to study Fashion Communication and Promotion. During my time in Nottingham, I have worked for Nellie PR as a paid PR intern and continued to write for various websites including English Wedding, Big Girls Browse and Twelve52 where I produce weekly food columns.

During the summer of 2011, I was selected to become a More magazine mini-blogger after being picked from hundreds of entries. Blogging for the website meant sticking to tight deadlines and producing copy on a range of subjects from learning new skills to retro trends and step-parenting. Writing for More magazine has really made me realise I want to become a full time freelance lifestyle journalist once I have finished my degree.

I currently live with my boyfriend just outside of Nottingham in a house right by the canal. I enjoy Nandos, crochet and Mulberry handbags. But not all together.
