Pompoms, Glitter & Dogeared Postcards in Abundance
Born in the Channel Islands, I grew up gazing out to sea and daydreaming of glamour and adventure. As a teenager, I was often surrounded by the detritus of glitter, colouring pencils and my favourite ads and articles torn out of magazines. It was evident that I was happiest whilst writing and creating through whatever medium was available to me.
Half French, a love of literature & foreign cultures led to my choice of studying languages at degree level. After four years of travel and study, I graduated from Durham University with a BA in Modern Languages in 2013, followed by a Marketing Degree from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
The path to working as a creative is not always easy but I wanted it enough and worked hard to make it happen. I landed my first paid article in 2013 as a Fashion & Style Writer and have now racked up several years experience in Content & Consumer Marketing.
I LOVE to paint and have gained a bit of recognition painting pubs and hospitality hotspots – follow me @guernseypubs or @lavalisedelouise on Instagram for more details.
This blog (est. 2012) was where my creative journey to become a writer all began. It aims to trace the places I go, the things I see, the people I meet and the times in which I live. Sometimes neglected, never forgotten about!
