I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless required to do so by law or for giveaways where I collaborate with a brand.

If a giveaway is collaborated with a brand I will clearly state this.

I’m Sophie, a twenty-two-year-old, fashion and lifestyle blogger from a little town called East Preston. When I’m not blogging or working my full-time job, you’ll find me either curled up on the sofa with a book, or binge-watching tv shows on Netflix. My site consists of beauty, books, fashion, self-love and mental health.
