Hello! I’m Ellie – a Brighton based journalist, author and blogger from Brighton, England.

I live with my husband (and until recently, my fat cat Eddie) in a Victorian terrace house just outside the centre of the city. We previously lived in South London where we both grew up.

I’m always on the hunt for beautiful, unusual and unique finds that are a little bit off the beaten track and I haven’t seen around too much – especially in the fields of travel, art & design, fashion, history, food and more. I love making people go: ‘How did you find that?’.

I started my blog in 2016 as a distraction after leaving a job on a travel magazine, as a way of curating all my curious finds and thoughts. At the time, I’d lived in Brighton for aaaages and was getting a bit bored. So, I started ‘investigating’ and posting about ‘little known’ Brighton and local gems.

I try to post regularly on a certain time and day each week but I tend to be a bit sporadic… but I do have a newsletter.

Interesting fact: Only a year after starting my blog I was asked to write Secret Brighton, a guidebook to little-known Brighton. I also write features and other things!
