Work With Me

A BIG Sparkly HELLO and thanks for stopping by!

If you are interested in working with our family, we are always open to hearing your ideas. You can contact me anytime via email at:

Who Are We?

Sparkles & Stretchmarks is an award winning UK Lifestyle & Family blog written by me - Hayley, a busy mum of three.

For over eight years now I have been sharing my family's journey as we've grown from couple to family of five, I write about many topics including family travel, home education, raising a trans child, domestic abuse survival and recovery, mental health, plus size fashion and body positivity.

I have built up a large, loyal and very engaged following of readers not only through my blog, but through my various social media platforms too - these days it can be difficult to determine a bloggers influence simply by looking at their follower numbers alone as, let's face it, followers and engagement levels can so easily be bought or manipulated! So I am really proud to be able to demonstrate the trust that our followers have in us with visibly high engagement and click through rates across our social media platforms - with Instagram a particular strong point. 

Sparkles & Stretchmarks was a blog that began life as a pregnancy diary, but it has grown to become my full time career. My blog continues to go from strength to strength, gaining followers and views at a steady pace.

Why Should You Work With Us?

We are dedicated to providing a friendly and efficient service to the brands that we commit to working with whilst also remaining true to ourselves and ensuring that we are producing content that is real and relatable for our audience.

I believe that we stand out in this field because we are very much a "normal family" whatever that might be - over the years I have really taken the time to connect with my readers through personal and soul baring posts, and as a result I feel that I have created a relationship of trust with them. I'm regularly complimented on my brand work by my readers and recieve regular feedback demonstrating that they trust our feedback and enjoy seeing products and experiences used and enjoyed by a "real" and normal family.

We are regularly featured in the press, and as a passionate writer I am also available to contribute my work for publication - having previously done so for some of the UKs top publications such as Essentials Magazine, the Good To Know website, and regularly contributing articles to the Huffington Post.
