About

image2Word! I’m an award-winning freelance Beauty and Features journalist, media consultant and experienced editor based in London (but originally from a magical placed called Newport, in South Wales.)

Prior to going freelance, I was Senior Beauty Editor at Marie Claire, Beauty & Health Editor at Women’s Health, and Features and Beauty Writer at Stylist tooMy words have also appeared in the The Guardian, Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Daily Mail, Sunday Telegraph, Esquire, Men’s Health,  Kerrang!, Alt Press, Top SanteClashRock Sound, Schon, Never Underdressed, Dazed Digital and XO Jane to name the ones I can legitimately remember.

I’ve also worked with trend forecasting agencies like The Future Laboratory/LSN Global to predict what’s going to be killer in the world of beauty and health and for Mastered as a editorial expert. I’ve chatted on Woman’s Hour, BBC’s Asian Network and ITV’s This Morning. I’m always found giving my two cents on expert panels, and worryingly, I was in the Courvoisier Future 500 in 2013, singling me out as a ‘tastemaker.’ I suppose I do have excellent taste in baked goods though, so that’s fair. And there’s nothing that annoys me more in life than the fact that this line of text doesn’t align with my picture. But sometimes you’ve gotta let that sh*t go right?
