About Me

Hello, I'm Carla!

Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I've run Droogette.com for over a decade, from my life as a university graduate, to just another Geordie girl in her mid-30s.

I've collaborated with brands such as Simply Be, New Look, Yours, The Body Shop, Rose & Co. as well as independent brands and creators.
I've also attended London Fashion Week in collaboration with Look Magazine and worked closely with them to launch their online blogging platform.

My hobbies – besides talking to myself on the internet - include video games, fashion history, Asian cuisine, watching drag performances, live music and I can often be found in the stalls of the theatre (never the circle, dahhling).

I also run a Japanese blog over at TheGeordieGaijin.com documenting my time living in Shizuoka prefecture, Japan. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you blog full-time?
No, I have a BA in Television & Radio Production, but I worked in the travel and tourism industry from 2010-2019. I now work in education.

What camera do you use?
A lot of photos in older posts use my Nikon DSLR, now I just use my iPhone 13. 

Can I interview you for my blog/article/school project/dissertation etc.?
I get asked this a lot during deadline season, but you are very welcome to contact me via the form on the sidebar. 

Can I write a guest post for you?
Please get in touch via the form on the sidebar to discuss options. 

How do you get started/gain followers?
I was unhappy in my final year at university and wanted a creative outlet outside my media degree. Over ten years later, here we are...

Is this blog PR friendly?
Absolutely! If you are interested in advertising, product placement or a review, please email me to discuss.


Sponsored Posts: 
Sponsored posts are clearly labeled at the bottom of the individual blog post for full transparency. Items sent for consideration are clearly identified. Views are always my own, and I would never promote a product I did not love myself.
