work with me

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

My (Moz) DA is currently 35. If you require more detailed stats, please email me.

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.

Gifting/product reviews/giveaways

I’m happy to receive and/or review products that I and my audience would genuinely be interested in and would otherwise buy and use. This would include things like books (art or creative), stationery, art supplies, home decor, gluten free foods, fashion, and photography related items.

If you want a product feature without a detailed review, I am happy to just share on Instagram – either as a Story post or in feed.

Please specify as much as possible when contacting me.

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.

If you’d like to discuss further, email me at laura.cardboardcities(@)


As above, if you would like a newsletter feature or would like to contribute a discount code or similar for my readers, please get in touch.

Sponsored/collaboration posts

I am open to writing sponsored (sponsored meaning paid for) posts, if they are fitting with the tone of the blog, my lifestyle and/or in the interests of my readers. I do not work for free/for exposure and expect to be paid for my time.

I will not post info-graphics or posts written by anyone but myself and I will always disclose a sponsored post.

Email me at laura.cardboardcities(@) to discuss rates and other details. If I feel your company, blog or advertisement does not fit in with this or is not to my taste, I reserve the right to decline your offer.

Please read my disclaimer/terms for more information.
