Hi there! I’ve been writing about beauty, fashion, fitness and travel for years working as a blogger and journalist. They’re still some of my keenest interests, but I value compassion, wellness and living your best life the most. In fact, I’ve been living a vegan/plant-based lifestyle since 2015. Have you seen The Game Changers?

My love of adventure probably comes from moving around at an early age. I was born in Bulgaria and lived there till I was 7 when I moved to the UK. Fast-forward to living in London, I spent 8 years working at national newspapers including the Daily Mail. In 2017 I moved to Australia where I continue to work as a beauty, fashion, fitness and travel writer in Melbourne.

You’ll find a snapshot of my life, work, and passions on this website, as well as on my Instagram and Twitter. The blog content on this site includes review features, travel guides and real talk about being a woman in 2019.

This blog was previously Bikini Girls Diary, formed jointly with blogger and PT Vicky Hadley. We started the site in 2016 due to our joint passion for fitness and it followed naturally from competing in shows. We even gave our subscribers a free workout guide to celebrate.

Vicky is now working full-time at a superstar PT in London helping women get into the best possible shape through healthy and sustainable methods. 

Hope you enjoy the site, check out my portfolio, and please get in touch with any queries.

Love, Deni
