Hey, thanks for stopping by!

I’m Rebecca, a lifestyle blogger based in the West Midlands.

In my day job I am a Digital Marketing and Communications Officer for the University of Birmingham any free time I have otherwise is spent training for the upcoming Birmingham International Marathon or writing on my blog. I also manage the West Midlands Blogger page on Twitter.

I am interested in working with brands particularly those local in the West Midlands I have previously worked with USN. I am also looking to use my social media and writing skills to help local charities. If you are a charity local to me (South Staffordshire, Wolverhampton and Birmingham) and need help setting up a wordpress site or with social media please email me.

I have previously written for The Metro, Bloggers Required and UK Blog Awards. In 2015 I was part of the BBC Generation 2015. Where 200 18-24 year-olds were chosen to be part of the BBC Election coverage both nationally and locally. Take a look at what I have written below:
