About

Lydia Elise Millen

Hello!
I’m Lydia and Lydiaelisemillen.com has been my corner of the internet for the last 6 years of my life. It all started out as a hobby to get me through my dissertation in my final year of University, I loved fashion and I loved being creative but had never quite found the right outlet for it all. Back then it was grainy iPhone pictures in my magnolia Uni digs, thrifted fashion and poor HTML coding but 6 years on I’ve managed to kick the awkward posing (somewhat) to the curb and carve out a space for myself

Much like my blog, I have grown and changed over the years and so has my style and at present day I pour my heart onto the pages of this blog along side snapshots of daily life, outfits and beauty essentials.

In 2016 I took Lydiaelisemillen.com from Blog to Vlog launching my Youtube channel with videos documenting my penchant for high fashion, beauty, travel and day to day life, which was to be the best thing I ever did. Within a year and a half we were Half a million strong and I could never have expect a welcome as warm as the one I received on Youtube. From this I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the biggest brands in the world with my recent signing to the L’Oreal Beauty Squad, working alongside Jaguar Landrover on the global launch of their newest vehicle with recent collaborations alongside Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Net-a-porter & By Terry.

Today you will find my weekly posts here on the blog with weekly videos coming every Sunday and Wednesday over on my Youtube channel and real time updates over on my Instagram and twitter featuring my two cats and my gorgeous husband-to-be Ali Gordon.

If you want to get in contact please e-mail info@lydiaelisemillen.com.

WHAT TO BUY THIS SUMMER

  Let’s be real. Sale shopping is pretty grim at the best of times. Traipsing around shopping centres for hours, stores look like bomb sites and the poor sales assistants bare the brunt of grumpy…
