Lives In: London
About Me: I’m a fulltime writer at Stylist Magazine and founder of Mother Pukka – a blogzine for ‘people who happen to be parents’ with a weekly vlog about everything from ‘Fake baking a birthday cake’ to ‘Working the 70s trend in the playground’. I previously lived in Dubai and then Amsterdam where I worked as a fashion writer and returned to London six months ago. I couldn’t find that much cool ‘parent-friendly’ events when I landed here – we’d done enough baby bounce and couldn’t look at another primary colour – so I set up Mother Pukka as somewhere to highlight cool stuff for mamas who wanted to go to places that kept the kids, but more importantly mama happy. We’re really excited that we’re launching our first official ‘parent-friendly’ event in October this year in collaboration with the achingly cool Indytute.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At: Fashion and lifestyle copywriting, concepting, editing and collaborating with other likeminded mamas on events that are ‘parent-friendly’.
Interested In: Collaborating with other likeminded mamas on events or content that is ‘parent-friendly’.
Mama Likes: Doing bizarre classes. I just did a neon sign-making class where you come home with your own neon sign (with working electrics). I also love vintage china upcycling – taking anything old and creating it into something beautiful. Oh and Tracey Anderson’s mat workout has been my fitness saviour when I couldn’t get to the gym.
Mama Inspiration: Steph Douglas from Don’t Buy Her Flowers, Molly Gunn from Selfish Mother and Jenny Scott from Mothers Meetings.
Brands that most reflect your style or that you’d want to work with: & Other Stories, Ponies and Pirates (for kids), Nor-Folk (for T-shirts) and Don’t Buy Her Flowers for bringing something new to mama gifting.
