“There is no need to be perfect to inspire others, let people be inspired by how you deal with your imperfections”
Hi, I’m Emily!
27-year-old, half Polish/half Britsh blogger and influencer.
Currently jumping between Leeds & London.
I can proudly say I do it all myself.
I made my own website from scratch by teaching myself, I do all my own photography, SEO, Influencer marketing, video editing, PR, content writing, all while working full-time in Artificial Intelligence for a digital agency and I LOVE it. Some people hate the new digital way of life but for me, it’s always been a passion.
I initially started my blog 4 years ago, because I cured my cystic acne for good and received quite a few questions around how I had done it. Then a few years after I transformed my body from an L to an XS by healthy eating and exercising 4 days a week, all on top of working full-time and gaining two BA degrees. (ive been busy!)
Now I believe in encouraging brains and beauty. Relying on how you look to make an income is a popular aspiration for today’s young women. I, on the other hand, want to inspire women to learn and be business minded and still look after their health and appearance. If that’s important to them.
You can learn/look/feel however you want, it’s down to you!
You can achieve any goal by changing your mindset.
And hopefully, I can inspire you to do that!
“Emily is not just another Fitness Blogger”
After gaining my first degree from The London College of Fashion (10 years ago now, wow!), I worked as a Freelance Fashion Stylist and gained an amazing opportunity as, Online Fashion & Beauty assistant for ELLE Magazine. Assisting the online team with fashion assisting and Health & Beauty Editor, Amy Lawrenson with product testing and reviews.
This is where I truly discovered my love for skincare and luxury products but also my interest in working online and how the digital industry was taking over.
5 years ago I moved back to Leeds to be closer to family and decided to study further, and did a second BA degree in Digital Media and Marketing. I freelanced as a model scout for Premier Models and also assisted companies with content writing and website management until I started at Home Agency.
I now work as part of the technical SEO team in Artifical Intelligence Optimization.
Google says, ‘focus on the user and all else will follow’. We take this forward in delivering search strategy that aligns with what users want from content right through to user experience and accessibility.
I am very lucky to work with such an amazing team of intellectual, creative-minded individuals that teach me something new every day all while I educate them on improving their diets and what skincare products they need to start using.
Yes, men, you do need to moisturise.
Emails regarding working with me:
My love for Fashion and Beauty started early, with my Mum a beauty therapist for most of my childhood, I learnt lots about looking after my skin at an early age. I then moved to London at 18, and worked for numerous Fashion Magazines, surrounding myself with fresh-faced models, who didn’t have a blemish in sight. Constantly feeling insecure and hopeless about my returning acne, I decided to share my experiences with products and treatments on Facebook and Instagram, where I would receive desperate emails and messages from people feeling the exact same way, but now asking for my advice. From this, my blog was born.
At 14 I was diagnosed with Cystic Acne. This led to years of thick makeup, and treatment after treatment to attempt to overcome my growing, self-conscious skin problem. Now at 27, I can finally say I am so happy with my skin, and throughout my blog, I tell you how and why, I am now blemish free, sharing the products I love, and reviewing new additions, I trial to add to my routines.
I focus on my experience with taking isotretinoin / Roaccutane and how it has helped me. But I also cover the importance of diet and exercise for your skin. I’ve recently added new features to the blog, such as travel suggestions in the lifestyle section, as I am a huge travel and food lover. I have also now included my love for music and making the perfect gym playlists, which can be found in the Fitness dropdown.
