Personal information may be provided voluntarily by the user or collected automatically when using this website. 

Personal information such as your name and email address is collected when you leave a comment on a blog post or page, send me an email and when you subscribe to my newsletter.

MailChimp – The data from my newsletter subscribers is held by a third-party provider, MailChimp, and is password protected. I don’t sell or trade email addresses with other organisations or businesses.

If you sign up to my newsletter, I use that information to send you fortnightly update of what I have posted on the blog, including my design tips, latest travel adventures and interviews I have had with design experts and brands. I may use the information you provided when signing up  to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information; to occasionally check my records are correct and make sure you’re happy with the content I’m providing. I will only ever use this information for the purpose of the newsletter you have signed up to.

I may also use the newsletter to promote my styling, photography and interior design services as well as provide offers and discounts from brand collaborations. 

I gather statistics via MailChimp on email openings and clicks from the newsletter to better improve the content of my newsletters. For more information please read MailChimp’s privacy policy here.

Google Analytics – I use Google Analytics to track and examine the use of this website, collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns, such as location and pages accessed. I do this to better understand which blog posts do well and where traffic is coming from, so I can constantly strive to improve my content and tailor it to suit my audience.
