About Me

Mummy and style blogger navigating the magazine industry in Dubai.

Hey gang and thank you for checking out Sweatshirts & Dresses! This space was created for sharing my personal style influenced by my Russian roots, nurtured by life in the UK and brightened up by our move to Dubai.

During my career in magazines such as ELLE, Glamour and Harpers Bazaar, I decided to start a blog where I could document my personal stylediscuss the magazine and blogging industry, and of course share our journey through parenthood (Lola’s cheeks are just beyond adorable!)

My personal style has been featured on websites such as Vogue, Grazia and Stylist, for more information please see my Press page.

Stay up to date by signing up to my newsletter where I also share a piece of content you won’t see anywhere else and follow me on @sweatshirtsanddresses.

Why not kick off our e-relationship with the three most popular posts from the website to give a taste of what to expect.
