I’ve been writing about travel since 2011, covering everything from fashion-friendly holiday ideas to the best attractions for art lovers. This was a natural transition from my training in fashion and lifestyle journalism, and my passport has been burning a hole in my pocket ever since.
Passionate about research, I love getting under the skin of a destination and going beyond the obvious sightseeing opportunities. When I arrive somewhere new, my notebook, pens and camera are pretty much surgically attached to me at all times.
Here are some of my previous features:
- Family Traveller – A Guide to Prague with Kids
- Cosmopolitan – Stylish Autumn City Break Ideas
- Contiki – Eco-Friendly Koh Tao
- Healthista – Top 5 Wellbeing Hotspots
- Hello – Luxurious Majorca
Besides these, I’ve contributed to the Sun, the Mirror, Mature Times, Tesco Living Magazine, Handbag.com and Babyworld, plus I was featured on Oregon’s Azumano Travel Show and I’m a blogger for The Huffington Post.
On a non-travel note, I’ve written for Sussex Style magazine on a range of topics, mainly covering culture, business, education and celebrity interviews, plus compiling fashion and homeware edits and monthly events listings. For Running in Heels, I’ve also tackled fashion/art exhibition and book reviews, think pieces and homeware edits.
I’m always looking to see and do more, but the key experiences on my travel wishlist include a trip to Mexico during Dia de los Muertos, visiting India’s great cities (such as Johdpur, Jaipur, Mumbai, Varanasi and Delhi), and exploring the unique landscape and sights of Rwanda.
