A blog about beauty, books, lifestyle, travel and more from a thirty-something Glasgow girl

Welcome to ellis tuesday!

my name is ellis. i'm a lifestyle blogger, passionate book lover and freelance journalist and writer from Glasgow, Scotland.

ELLIS' Story


More than a few years ago now I graduated with a Joint Honours degree in Politics and English. I started this very blog around that time and I never could have imagined how much it would impact my confidence, career and everyday life.


When I’m not blogging (or reading), you’ll find me freelancing at the likes of House Beautiful, Country Living, Cosmopolitan, Ideal Home, Daily Express, Expert Reviews UK and POPSUGAR UK, where I typically cover everything from homes and interiors to plants, events, makeup and skincare, books and shopping roundups.


Writing about homes and interiors has me itching to own my own home one day soon. I’d also love to travel more in the coming years, with destinations like the Italian coast, Paris and the West Coast of America, on my list.
