Aside from running this hub of Manchester Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle blog posts, full time I work as a career focused International Beauty Marketing Manager for some leading worldwide Beauty Brands. My job is incredibly fast paced and demanding, meaning that I see my blog as a complete hobby – if I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did, I simply wouldn’t do it!
Outside of work I love to combine my passions of video, photography, going out and beauty products to create this blog of all the things I love most. If you follow me on Instagram you will also see that I love to travel and after my latest visit to America I have become an avid Ice Hockey supporter!
In 2016 I also became a first time mother to my beautiful pug baby, Lazy Sonny Days. Being a Pug Momma to Sonny the Pug is the best thing I ever did; he brings so much light into everyone’s lives and he comes on so many adventures with me. So, don’t be surprised if you see him around here a lot!
You may also see appearances on the blog from my partner, Jonathan. We have known each other for over 10 years and met each other again recently in the most unlikely way – in fact, if I told you that on our third date we planned our first holiday to New York together, it would probably explain a lot.
So, grab yourself a cuppa (or for me, most likely a wine!) and sit down and join the party.
LilyKitten.com was seeded in May 2012, after I graduated from university and was looking for both a creative outlet, and to hone my Digital skills. Concentrating only on fashion at first, the blog quickly blossomed and over 3 years later, it’s turned into a hub for fashion, lifestyle, beauty and all-things-Manchester.
Since planting myself into my blog, I’ve been lucky enough to work with many internationally renowned brands and become multi-award winning – to find out more about who I’ve worked with, please see my As Seen In page. Despite working with brands such as Vogue, Georgio Armani, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, I am keen to remember my roots and love nothing more than to collaborate with independent companies, up-and-coming designers and local Mancunion talent. I am so proud to be a Manchester based fashion and lifestyle blogger. Gosh, I love this city.
As well as Manchester based street style, I also enjoy the social side of Manchester and love to make the most of my incredible hometown. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know to expect tips and tricks as to my favourite Manchester restaurants, bars and hideouts; plus, all that’s going on in the coming month.
Welcome, and enjoy!
