Hello! I’m Ellie – a journalist and author (and I guess, 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 started my blog in 2016 as a distraction after leaving a job on a travel magazine. At the time, I’d also lived in Brighton for aaaages and was getting a bit bored. So, to inspire me and stop me watching telly all day long, I started ‘investigating’ and posting about my curious finds ‘little known’ Brighton and local gems.

I’m always on the hunt for beautiful, unusual and unique places that are off the beaten path or I haven’t seen around too much – as well as other unique finds, especially in the fields of travel, art & design, fashion, history and more.

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!
