About Me

Hi there, I'm Mel, or, depending on where you meet me, Mickey. I'll answer to both.

I live in meanjin/Brisbane, Australia and I'm a descendant of the Wakka Wakka and Bigambul people. I'm university tutor, a master's candidate,  and a freelance writer and editor. To balance out all the time I spend working, I have a bunch of fun hobbies like cooking and baking, reading, singing and dancing.

If you enjoy the content on my blog or Instagram, please consider shouting me a coffee via this amazing page. A couple of bucks for a cuppa goes a long way when you're spending days (and sometimes nights) writing. If you'd prefer your coffee money go towards buying Archie a treat, that's cool too, just make sure you leave me a note with your tip and I'll make sure he gets something great!

If you'd like to talk to me about advertising in my side bar, sponsoring a post, or hiring me as a model or writer, contact me. I'm always interested in collaborating, so please get in touch! With this in mind, please note that some posts on this site do contain affiliate links for which I earn a small commission if you go on to purchase from sites you click through to. Sponsored posts (those posts for which I am paid to speak about a product or service) will always be clearly marked.
