Hey there and welcome to my blog, Life’s a Window. I’m Ellie, a twenty-something born and bred Londoner.
While I’ve spent most of my time in London, I’ve travelled extensively, and I’ve also lived in the English seaside city of Brighton for three years and sunny Sydney in Australia for one year.
Travel is the obsession of my life and I try to explore and write about my experiences as much as I can. Aside from adventuring, I love spending time outdoors, eating out (who doesn’t?), watching live music, swimming, and fashion.
If you want to learn a bit more about me, feel free to read on!
I’m a full-time freelance writer with over five years writing professionally and I’ve also worked in marketing for over four years. I write on a variety of topics including travel, food, fashion, beauty, music, marketing, plus a whole lot more. Although I have to say, writing on travel is my focus.
I’ve always been interested in writing, and even back at school I was convinced that I would grow up to be a journalist. Moving back to London after university, I became more and more interested in content writing as I was given extra opportunity to write large travel pieces for clients at the marketing agency I was working at.
I also started to freelance review festivals and gigs throughout the summer and beyond for online music guides, which fuelled another love of mine – live music and festivals.
I carried on working in marketing while I lived abroad in Sydney, Australia and then once I returned to London again for the four-star Petersham Hotel in leafy Richmond.
While I completed freelancing assignments while working in marketing, I turned to full-time freelancing writing early 2019 and I haven’t looked back since – yay! Working as a freelance writer is a dream come true and I often feel so lucky to have a job that I not only love but offers me complete flexibility in my lifestyle.
About Life’s A Window
I first set up this space in 2014 before embarking on an eight-month-long travel trip around Southeast Asia (doesn’t it always start there?) as a way of documenting my travel experiences and keeping in touch with friends and family. However, as I’ve progressed with my freelance writing, I now use this website to display my portfolio and publish some of my many musings.
Feel free to browse some of my recent works or perhaps delve into some of my older pieces of writing. You’ll find that the content varies quite a lot, with many articles written with a different audience in mind.
Work with Me
I’m always open to working with new clients in a variety of fields, so please feel free to get in touch with any questions or commissions.
