Before I started Second Floor Flat, I avoided the blogging world for years. There was just something about the idea of being a blogger that felt uncomfortable. It just didn't feel like the right place me.

In 2012 I made a big life change – got married and move abroad. Suddenly I found myself sitting on a new couch in a new country with the same laptop, looking for a creative outlet. In the few years since I began blogging, I've learned that the online community can be an extremely positive, supportive place. It's now a community that I love and am happy to be part of, and a place where I've made real friendships and countless connections.

It's basically the best. (More on that here.)


As a platform for real women who are as interested in approachable fashion and design as they are in connection, growth, and learning


As a source of discovery and exposure for high quality, independent and emerging designers and makers of all audience sizes

As a blog with a dedicated, growing following, Second Floor Flat aims to provide a platform for independent retailers and designers to showcase their product in a real and genuine way. Product is accepted on a case-by-case basis, and I offer partnership packages of all sizes as well as other options for creative collaborations – social media and the like. In the past, I've worked with brands like: (also here + here)
Bridge & Burn
California Tailor (also here)
Tradlands (also here)
Dear Kate (also here and here)

and I was voted as one of the best bloggers for genuine partnerships by Blog Society. Cool right?

If you’d like more information, contact me here to request a media kit. You can also learn about my freelance writing and consulting work here.  

Above all I strive to keep this blog as real and genuine as possible, and only work with brands that I feel truly benefit my readers.

Thanks for your interest in Second Floor Flat!
