My name is Helen and I’d love to work with you!
Have a look below for some information on what I’ve done and ways we can work together. Whether its a sponsored post, paid link, a review, brand ambassadorship, social media or website advertising, feel free to contact me through my website or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d be more than happy to send you my media kit.
Sponsored posts and reviews
There are loads of opportunities to feature your brand on my blog or social media channels – whether that’s a full blogpost review on my website, or posts on my Facebook or Instagram pages. All products will be reviewed by me and my family (husband Nick, and sons aged 5, 3 and 3) and written about honestly.
I have been travel writing for more than 10 years, and have reviewed hotels and destinations all over the world including Singapore, Croatia, Thailand, Italy, and USA. I now focus on family-friendly holidays where there is plenty to do to keep my three entertained. Have a look at my travel section to see some of my latest posts – we’d love to plan a trip with you.
I love building relationships with brands and working closely with them, producing content either on my blog or social media channels regularly.
I have a journalistic background having been a newspaper reporter and a news editor for nearly 15 years, so love to do freelance writing as well as the ‘mum stuff’ for my blog. I am a columnist for the Plymouth Herald newspaper and Western Morning News’ ‘West’ magazine, and also write for other websites including Made For Mums, and am always up for freelance writing for magazines and websites.
I was named the winner of the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Awards 2018, in the Fresh Voice Category when my blog was just 10 months old, and the Readers’ Choice Category in the same awards in 2019. I’m also shortlisted as a finalist in the Baby and Toddler Influencer of the Year MAD Blog Awards 2020. In my pre-kids journalist life I also won South West Reporter of the Year in the EDF awards.
TV, Radio and Newspapers
I have appeared on TV and radio several times including ITV news talking about how to keep young children cool in a heatwave, BBC news talking about homeschooling in lockdown, and BBC Radio about all sorts of topical items – such as the random things small kids get stuck up their noses! I also regularly appear live on BBC Radio Devon’s Sunday breakfast show talking about the national newspapers, and their weekly breakfast show talking about all things Mum! I am a columnist for the Plymouth Herald’s website Plymouth Live and ‘West’ magazine and have appeared in the Western Morning News, Plymouth Magazine, and Heart FM.
I run regular giveaways on my Facebook page with both local and national brands which are hugely successful. Get in touch if you’d like to be involved in one.
I write product reviews for all kinds of things – for toddlers, preschoolers, little boys, or mums. And in keeping with my blog style – I’m blatantly honest.
Here are some of the brands I’ve worked with recently:
