Writing & Social Media Services

Are you looking for an experienced writer and journalist to contribute to your blog or publication, or to compile press releases for your business? Or are you looking to increase awareness of your brand or business through the effective use of social media and PR (both traditional and digital)? I can help with tailor-made writing and social media services!

I have over ten years’ worth of experience in the beauty industry and I’ve written for some of South Africa’s leading publications, including Woman & Home, O, The Oprah Magazine, ELLE magazine, Living & Loving, and the Clicks Clubcard magazine, to name just a few. I’ve also written for a number of online publications, and have experience in putting together press releases and press kits for both the local and international markets.

I have several areas of expertise, including (but not limited to) beauty, parenting, lifestyle (for example, celebrity interviews and interviews with ‘real’ women for magazine publications), health and wellness, psychology, and travel.

I’ve also been running my own successful boutique social media and PR agency since March 2014 (on top of running this blog) which sees me putting together social media content plans and strategies – as well as helping to raise brand awareness through both traditional and digital PR strategies – for a number of beautiful, local brands and businesses.
