Editor of a number of lifestyle supplements going into various nationals throughout the year, as well as tailored digital content across several publication websites. Outside of this, I work as a blogger/influencer/content creator via mlaceyd.com and social channels @mlaceyd (with a noteworthy following on Instagram and TikTok). My intent is to create a multifaceted platform for anyone who wants good skin, is looking for fashion tips, lifestyle advice, and travel inspiration — but also anyone trying to be more sustainable. Previous experience includes managing features across Newsquest's north London and Essex newspaper and magazine portfolio, and intermittent freelance travel and feature writing published by Stylist Magazine, Metro UK, Arcadia Magazine, and ASMALLWORLD.
