I’m a colour-loving twenty-something girl living in London in England. I love to share my adventures and hopefully inspire you to live a colourful and smiley life!

About ShinyThoughts

ShinyThoughts was born in May 2009 through a desire to share my thoughts with like minded, happy people just like you. The blog covers what I wear, things that I’ve seen, eaten, bought and loved, travel and things I find myself doing in my spare time as well as collaborations with some of my favourite brands.

Photos and copy are all my own so you can be sure every post will remain a true personal shiny thought. In the last 5 years ShinyThoughts has grown, gained more readers and followers and has been featured in national magazines and well known brand’s promotions.

Pop Quiz Facts!

1 – French was my first language, ah Oui oui! Do feel free to comment ‘en francais.’

2 – I grew up in the ‘Surrey Hills’ in a town that makes the best rose wine in the world and was named after a type of extinct chicken (Dorking)

3 – When I was little, I was never bored. My neighbours taught me card making, embroidery, wood work, knitting and more, I just loved making things. See my DIY’s!

4 – I love dancing. I studied Ballet for 10 years but for the past 5 I’ve loved Modern dance, it makes me feel very liberated. My current obsessions are Salsa and Zumba.

5 – My bedroom is full of plastic, cute, kitsch and colourful things that people like to oogle at when they come and visit. Take a tour!

6 – I adore bright pink, a strong cuppa Rosie-lee, food with faces, BBC cooking programmes, things with cartoon frogs on and remaining half a child.

7 – When I grow up I’d like to live in London with a kitty or two. Please.

8 – I work at ASOS Fashion Finder and also use the site as a Blogger, come and see my looks or upload your own!



What do you do other than Blogging?

I’ve been a graphic designer and fashion editor at ASOS Fashion Finder since November 2012. It’s the perfect platform to upload your blog outfit photos and get some promotion! Before that I freelanced in Fashion Promotion in London. If you fancy having a peek at what I’ve did in my degree and during the following 3 months, click on the Portfolio page.

What camera do you use?

I shoot on a Canon 550d with my new 35mm lens which I’m really enjoying! Before June I used a 50mm 1.8. Photos of me are kindly taken by my brother or a kind friend as stated at the end of each outfit post. I then edit myself in Photoshop.
