CV



With a proven track record of fine-tuning content across national magazines both online and in print; creating fast-paced bridal news as well as in-depth features that promise to entertain, inform and captivate the reader, and a knack for social media and recognising the new, the innovative and the 'what's next', I’m enthusiastic, confident and ready for a fresh challenge as a journalist. My organisational skills are second to none and over the years I have built up strong relationships with PRs and brands, particularly within the bridal, beauty and fashion industries, and have a brilliant diary of contacts.

I’m also the editor and founder of the style blog, The Fashion Ache, which, in its sixth year, continues to draw in new readers and followers on a daily basis. The blog has been shortlisted by Cosmopolitan Magazine for Best Established Fashion Blog in 2013 and 2015, as well as 'Best Fashion Influencer' in 2016. Via its success I have had the opportunity to work with some wonderful brands, attend industry events (including the BFAs) and interview the likes of Kelly Brook, Kate Nash and Mary Portas.

January 2017 also saw the launch of my new bridal venture: BRIDAL EDITORBRIDAL EDITOR is a fresh, new, purely-fashion bridal blog showcasing everything from the gown to the accessories and shoes. The site will not only inspire brides-to-be with it's endless array of features and new designer bridal collection launches and news, but also with it's WHAT SHE WORE section, a tab devoted to a real life brides and what they wore.
