She has worked as a journalist for over a decade, starting her career as a fashion assistant at Sunday Times Style, moving to Grazia to become Senior Fashion News & Features Editor then on to Glamour where she was Fashion Features Editor at Large.

She's now written a book 'Why Social Media Is Ruining Your Life' a no-holds-barred, no-filter look at what social media is doing to us as a society, and how we can deconstruct the online fantasy to change our own attitudes about modern womanhood.
Quotes from the episode:
"Social media takes all the WORK out."
'Social media has to be ONE of the pans frying in our general life, it can't be the only pan frying. It can't be every part of the way you validate yourself. It can't be the only way you promote your career."
