About Me

About Me - pic with the girls

I’m Jacqui – journalist, blogger, and mum of two gorgeous girls; Big Sis, born Summer 2008, and Lil Sis, born Autumn 2010.

I was a true-life features and travel writer for 20 years, with my articles appearing in glossy magazines around the world, including Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Psychologies, Look and The Guardian’s Weekend magazine. After the birth of my youngest daughter, I began to move towards digital publishing, and am now a full-time blogger and influencer.

You can check out my journalism portfolio at www.jacquipaterson.com; I’m also a founding member of the boutique collective, Mothers & Shakers.

I’m very firmly enmeshed in the parent and lifestyle online community, with direct access to thousands of fellow bloggers – many of whom are now close friends. In the past six years I’ve been lucky to collaborate with dozens of high-profile companies and brands, including Philips, DFS, Kurio, Fisher Price, Next, Vertbaudet, Zalando, Base Fashion, House of Fraser, Arlo & Jacob, Marks and Spencer, and the stunning Windjammer Landing Resort in St Lucia.

I recently completed a Back-to-School You Tube video campaign for the Korbond channel. I also have my own You Tube channel, where I upload event and family days out, and client campaigns.

I have spoken at many blogging conferences including Britmums Live, Blog Camp and Wonder London. I was an official blogger for the Tesco Mum of the Year Awards from 2012 to 2015, and was recently described as a ‘Parent Blogger Genius’ by The Independent (a claim yet to be verified).
