Welcome to The Lusting Life!
I’m Marianne, a 28 year old blogger living in the Midlands who is obsessed with all things interior related. This little blog is a place for me to share all the things I lust after. I’m constantly eyeing up interior items, clothing, homeware & more… it’s a life long affliction! So, if like me you paw through interior magazines/ Pinterest daily, scour online clothing stores late into the night and are always finding new items to lust over – then stick around as I’ll be sharing all my favourites items here.
By day I work in Marketing but by night I am founder and author of the Lusting Life Interiors & Lifestyle Blog. I have also previously enjoyed writing interior themed blog posts as marketing exec & content manager for the National Design Academy & have worked for luxury highstreet brands Laura Ashley, Pied a Terre and House of Fraser back in the day!
Achievements so far
It was a great achievement as content manager to see the National Design Academy’s blog nominated & make the shortlist for The Best Design Inspiration Blog category at The Amara Interior Awards 2015 which I was also lucky enough to attend & got to meet the lovely host, Sophie Robinson.
My ‘She Sheds’ – Women’s answer to the ‘Man Cave’ blog post for the NDA was included at number 15 in Amara Interior Blog Awards The 50 Best Interior Blog Posts of 2015 list.
