UK Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Blogger
Hi, I’m Sarah! I’ve been a fashion and beauty blogger for over 15 years, based in North East UK.
My blog, Temporary:Secretary, offers a blend of fashion and beauty blog content. In addition, you’ll find occasional lifestyle, home inspiration, travel, and pet content because who doesn’t love adorable pet pics on the Internet?!
Back in 2008, while still in university, I began my own e-commerce business as a side hustle from my bedroom. It received national press coverage and even caught the attention of celebrity Fearne Cotton, who wore my products on the cover of Sugar Magazine, and girl group Little Mix wore my jewellery on a popular Channel 4 chat show.
Around this time, I also delved into blogging and became part of the first generation of mainstream high street style bloggers. Then in 2011, I was voted LOOK Magazine’s Best Blogger, which was a defining moment for me.
In addition to my passion for blogging, I worked as a freelance content creator for a number of small independent businesses before transitioning into my now-career in marketing and digital. I spent a brief period in the digital team at Soap & Glory in London before moving on to work in social media for an award-winning fashion department store. I moved to even bigger things and became part of the marketing team at one of Europe’s largest shopping centres. I now work in hotel marketing which I thoroughly enjoy.
About My Fashion & Beauty Blog:
Winning LOOK Magazine’s best blogger in 2011 propelled my fashion and beauty blog to new heights. I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with national and global brands while maintaining editorial and creative independence.
If you’re looking for a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger based in the UK (or North East England to be a bit more precise) to partner with for outreach and campaigns, I would love to be involved.
