PR / Contact


Thanks for popping over to my blog and checking out ways that you can work with me.  I have a full time role in Finance that keeps me out of trouble while allowing me to buy too many shoes…my blog, Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes is my hobby.

Please note that I may only check my blog emails on the weekend depending on how busy my work / life balance is at the time.

I love the community that follows my blog and have total respect for them so I would never mislead them in any way.


I no longer accept anything complimentary for review purposes for my blog as I want to provide authentic reviews for my readers and showcase the experience that they will be receiving rather than a “blogger” experience.

If you have a new gluten free afternoon tea or fine dining experience that you think my gluten free readers and I would enjoy then please ping me an email and let me know about it and if it tickles my fancy then I will pop along…I will book and pay for the meal myself.

I would like to thank the companies that I’ve worked with in the past for supporting my blog.

Guest Posts

I don’t accept guest posts on my blog as it’s my personal diary.

Sponsored Posts

I no longer accept sponsored posts as I want all my posts to be written by me PLUS I don’t sell links.

Blogger Events

I no longer attend blogger events; the main reason is that I’m not based in London (I live in Bedfordshire) so I tend to decline most due to work / life commitments especially during week days however I also don’t feel that my readers can experience many of these events themselves so I wouldn’t write about them on the blog.

Social Media Stats

Below are my social media stats.  My stats may seem low but I’m a firm believer that buying fake followers and the follow / unfollow nature of gaining followers does not grow a  true community (recently I did a social media experiment on instagram to regards bots and as such my instgram numbers have grown).
