Fashion and Beauty Blogger UK
I’m Sarah, based in the UK and I’ve been fashion & beauty blogger for 14 years.
Temporary:Secretary is a fashion and beauty blog (UK), but you will also find the odd bit of lifestyle, home inspiration, travel and a few pet content from time to time (Because the Internet loves pet pics and I like to please the crowd!).
Even at a young age, I knew there was another side of fashion besides pretty dresses and fancy shoes. So in sixth form, I studied A-Levels in Textiles and Business Studies. Then spent the next couple of years having the best time of my life studying Fashion Design at college, which led me on to graduate from University with a 2:1 degree in Fashion Marketing BA (hons).
During my final year at uni, I launched my own business. Looking back, I don’t know how I juggled my own business whilst having so much uni projects to do but it is an achievement that I’m so proud of. Social media didn’t exist like it does today, but running an e-commerce business shaped who I was to become.
In addition to this, I hustled in freelance work
with small independent businesses
, before embarking on a career in marketing and digital. I enjoyed a short stint in the digital team at Soap & Glory
. Then worked in social media for an award-winning fashion department store, and most recently within the marketing team at one of the biggest shopping centres in Europe.
About My Fashion & Beauty Blog:
After I won LOOK Magazine’s fashion blogging competition in 2011 (here’s the entry I submitted
if you fancy taking a look!), my fashion and beauty blog took off in ways I never imagined. I ran with the opportunity and I haven’t looked back since.
I enjoy working with national and global brands while retaining editorial and creative control and feel very lucky to be in the position where brands trust me enough to do this.
If you’re working on blogger outreach and campaign, I would love to be part of it, please feel free to drop me an email which can be found on my contact page
