A Vancouver based film writer, I love sharing my favourite things, from fashion and beauty to books and local colour. I live in BC, with my wonderful boyfriend and my little black cat, Grimoire. I like to try new things, see new places, and then curl up by the fire with my cat and a cup of Fortnums Earl Grey to think and about what I’ve experienced.
I’ve always loved old school glamour, film stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly, who had grace and elegance, but also a strength and sense of adventure which I admire. My style can be a bit eclectic, because I like to have fun with what I wear. I love cloche hats and pencil skirts, but I also love jeans and chunky knits. If my outfit is preppy or vintage, I like to add a subversive subtle detail. I try to attend a show or two at Fashion Week in SS or AW, and find it really inspiring.
Like Dolly Parton, I believe that you should “Find out who you are and do it on purpose”. She’s someone who embraces life and wears what makes her happy, and though her style is a lot, well, bigger than mine, I think her sense of play, her ability to laugh at herself and to always be a lady, no matter what life throws at her, are all admirable qualities.
I grew up in Australia, and spent almost a decade in London, before moving to Vancouver, Canada, in late 2018. I studied films and film making for about 5 years from my Bachelors degree in Australia to a scholarship to Met Film School in London. I’ve won a few international awards for my screenplays, and now I write about films as a critic and journalist or make movies. That’s my job. (You can read more about it HERE on my website, if you like)
I write about fashion and beauty, and also about life and the things that interest me. I like to focus on good photography and writing. I love working with brands and talking about new beauty and makeup products, and where to get great fashion and accessories. I’ve worked successfully with some really great brands like Borjois, Max Factor and Hawes and Curtis. I also review two books a month, which are ones from my own shelves or from authors who send me their work for honest review. (If you’re a brand or would like me to review your product or book, please get in touch via the contact page) My readers here are generally female, though there are guys too. They’re mostly from the UK, USA, Canada and India, and then Australia and other places too. They range from 18 years to about 40. My blog has won a few awards, both from industry and blogging professionals. For past collaborations with brands and publishers, check out my contact page where they are listed.
