I have always had a love of fabric, colour and crafting. This life-long passion lead me to study at the London College of Fashion. I spent a few years in the fashion industry before leaving it for a different career. Missing the opportunity to be creative in my nine-to-five job, I started my blog Lotts and Lots. I love to share stylish tutorials that give your life a dash of sparkle.
