A Canadian turned Edinburgh lifestyle blogger
Let’s catch you up
ArcticSabrina.com started as a high school project by a teenage me who was living in a small, secluded town in Northern Ontario. I felt like she would never do anything cool or exciting with her life. It was about the time that YouTube first really kicked off, and this landscape of online creating was emerging. It felt like something no one in my hometown would do, so I started doing it and I dared people to laugh at me for it (I’m sure they did).
Fast forward, I finished high school while writing reviews of my favourite beauty products. Then I started university, writing more about slow fashion and travel. I started working in social media, putting the little things I had learned about SEO and content creation to work. When I finished university, I was desperate to keep going to school but also desperate to leave my hometown once and for all. In the end, I chose leaving, and I moved to Edinburgh.
‘I don’t even have a pla-‘ was my go-to friends quote to recite back to every middle-aged-friend-of-my-parents who asked me what I was going to do when I moved. Well, eventually I started tour guiding in the Old Town, and I kept writing, but more full-time. I started writing more seriously about the things I came here to do. Coming of age, and dating, and then about things I started to have a niche knowledge of. Short holiday trips around Scotland, and, of course, Edinburgh.
Now, I self-identify as an ‘slow living, slow travel blogger’. I still share outfit posts, but they’re more about the cool places in Edinburgh that I want to share!
I’m doing my Masters in History, and I freelance as a digital marketer as Waterlilies Digital Marketing. Now, I regularly work with Scottish based and sustainable companies such as the Tartan Blanket Co., the Scottish Government and Ana Luisa. I share sponsored content on my Youtube, blog and Instagram – but only if it fits. Often, I work with these brands to create content for their own websites and social media.
