About/Contact Me

I am a twentysomething travel, photography and beauty blogger who occasionally writes about other topics.  Within travel, I tend to write mostly about Europe because all the other travel bloggers seem to write about South East Asia.  As a writer, I have written articles that are published in Offbeat Bride and on Buzzfeed, and as a photographer, I have taken photographs that are published in local and national news outlets in the UK.  I also have a Youtube channel that updates weekly.

‘Don’t sell crap’

– Steve Jobs, CEO and founder of Apple.

I currently work with Amazon, Booking and Villiers because I strongly believe that these companies are the best at what they do:

Amazon has a huge selection of products at highly competitive prices, so whatever I’m writing about, they generally have it at a good price. Legally I have to state the following: Delight and Inspire is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to http://www.amazon.com

Booking.com is a hotel search and booking listing site which I have been using for several years for my own hotel/guesthouse rooms before I considered working with them.  I use them because they are a worldwide company with the best selection of good value accommodation and an excellent hotel reviewing system.

Villiers is a private charter jet company whom I recommend for chartered flights because they will get you to your destination if it’s possible, and when you’re planning a trip to somewhere out of the way, that’s generally what you need.

Steve Jobs said “don’t sell crap” and I don’t.  I have full control over the ultimate content of this site and I only recommend products where they have honestly done the thing I said they did.  Unfortunately, I do very occasionally have to handle writing a negative review, but this is why my readers trust me, so if you believe your service or product is great, I’m sure we won’t have any problems!

I am happy to work with travel companies in exchange for a fee or for services, e.g. free accommodation or transport.  Email for details.  If you are not a travel company and you want me to just write a post, as of 2016 I now offer a paid writing service at $50 per 500 words, either for publication on Invoke Delight and Inspire or for you to publish on your own website; contact me for further information and terms.  For my own integrity, I will point out where any post published on my own site has been paid for.  Please don’t embarrass yourself by asking me to work for you in exchange for nothing.  In the words of my step-dad: “what did your last slave die of?”  I will offer free link exchange (I post a link to your site if you post a link back to mine, no weird code or banners) to reputable sites in good standing at my discretion. Email for further details.  I will not respond to link requests without a link exchange.

Lots of Love,
Invoke Delight and Inspire xoxo
