Tell us a bit more about you, how would you describe your profession and what makes you tick? Where did it all begin for you?
I’ve always been passionate about interiors and decor and when we moved from Caversham to a new home here in York six years ago, I started documenting how I was updating the rooms on Instagram. It opened up a whole world of different styles and trends and it was great to have a space where you could share ideas and inspiration.
Six years ago when I started posting, my job as a content creator didn’t exist – now I work full time creating content for social media and websites with lovely brands who align with my own style, write a popular weekly blog based on styling your home on a budget and contribute regularly to magazines and newspapers. My real love is thrifting and repurposing and my book, Resourceful Living, was published in April, the ethos of which is how your home should make you happy whilst incorporating a mix of vintage and key investment pieces.
What inspires you to get up in the morning?
I really do enjoy my job and I always have a project on the go. My work is very varied – one day I can be styling a space in my home with brand product, the next working with a drinks brand, talking on a panel or presenting a workshop. I love pushing the boundaries of Instagram by using every element of the platform and creating content that works across many areas. I also love writing and spend at least a day every week producing my Sunday post.
