Hey everyone, I'm Robyn Bates and welcome to my blog! 

I thought I'd share with you a few things about me and where it all started from. I studied at The Fashion Retail Academy for 2 years where my love for fashion really blossomed, more than what I ever imagined. When I left the FRA, I felt like a huge chunk of me was missing and I wasn't as aware of things going on in the industry anymore. That's when all began. 

Since a very young age, I've been obsessed with photography and fashion so it made sense for me to develop a blog where I can let my thoughts, photos and imagination run free. Since late 2015, it's been an amazing and interesting journey and I'm so grateful to be able to share it with you all. From teaching myself about HTML coding, domains, photoshop plus many more, it's all been a great experience and I can't wait to develop that in the future. Over the past years, I've loved working with a variety of fashion, beauty, lifestyle and travel brands and am grateful to have been a part of their seasonal campaigns. A few of my blogging highlights would be flying to Spain with Feel Good Drinks to shoot a huge online campaign, flying to Poland with The Blogger Programme for an educational trip around Krakow and being taken to Love Box Festival with Skinny Dip & Carmex. But the list is endless ...

I currently live in Essex and work in London developing my career in Fashion Buying at Tommy Hilfiger & Calvin Klein, a job that I've wanted to do since a very young age. Me and my boyfriend @samszmodics have a little pug called @flo.pug and she's such a funny character. She constantly cracks us all up and we love her millions. I have a little Brother called @bates_teddy and he's my bestest friend in the whole world. Even though he's 10 years old, we still love going on our little dates and spending time with each other.

As well as my blog, at the age of 16, I created my own personalised frame business which you can find here @therobyncollection. I've always been quite creative when it comes to DIY and making things and I found my niche in doing this. My aim is to create special & sentimental gifts for people to remember.
