Welcome to Handbags and Cupcakes, the blog for all things lovely, written by yours truly, Rachel Emma Hosie. If you're into eating, travelling, style, baking, health, London, the life of a young journalist and an array of sparkly happenings, this is the place for you.

  • Things I love: sunshine, halloumi, life in general, peanut butter, autumn, breakfast, big earrings, pink roses and peonies, Germany, avocado, anything sparkly, duck egg blue Minis, bellinis, musicals, houmous.
  • Things I dislike: raw tomatoes, rudeness, cats, people who aren't enthusiastic about anything, slow walkers, bad grammar, coriander (so much).

You can find my writing in various places around the interweb including The Independent, BBC News, The TelegraphCosmo online, the Mail Online, the Huffington Post and Star magazine; and if you want to know a bit more about my professional exploits, by all means have a look at my LinkedIn page.

Describe myself? Perpetually curious, far too keen, ridiculously enthusiastic and happy 97.4% of the time. Made up of predominantly peanut butter, houmous, halloumi and sparkle.

I hope reading Handbags and Cupcakes may give you a smidge more zest for life and leave you with a smile on your face.
