this UK based creative lifestyle blog is primarily about illustration, colour and photography as well as other themed posts. things like homewares, interiors and general home decor, stationery, books, art, vintage/vintage feel, and fashion/outfit posts often appear, and therefore are promoted on this blog.

my audience is primarily creative, self-employed (or with a small business as a hobby) females in the UK and US between the ages of 25 and 35.

some brands and companies i’ve previously worked with include habitat, homebase, sainsburys, house of fraser, farrow and ball, laura ashley and maplin. i also love working with smaller brands/businesses, and whether the brand is big or small, enjoy the process of collaboration. i would love to work with more cardiff and wales based small businesses, too.

product reviews/giveaways »
i’m happy to review products that i am genuinely interested in and would buy/use, and if it fits in with the feel of my blog. this would include things like books (ideally art or creatively focused ones), stationery, art supplies, home decor, fashion, and photography related items.

in regards to timescale, i will post a review when i’m ready. this will normally be within a week or two, but may be sooner or later depending on what’s being reviewed. if you need something by a specific date, please let me know! this makes it easier and less stressful for all involved.
