Sunday, 2 July 2017


When I was a little girl I used to create magazines by hand and it was always my dream to have my own one day and today, July 2nd, 2017, I am launching my very own online magazine. started as a blog when I was 14-years-old and I have always cherished it. Throughout my GCSE's I would blog when I should have been revising, throughout ALevels I did the same, but when I nabbed myself an apprenticeship at my local paper as a reporter I knew it was time to put VavaViolet on a back burner and focus on passing my National Training for Journalists qualification. It killed me inside to push this site to the back of my mind and for the past two years, I have posted on it twice a week on average. Sometimes months went by where I was too busy to publish anything at all.

But I'm moving on to the next stage of my life now. My exams for my apprenticeship have ended so, therefore, it's time for the next challenge. Knowing this was my dream and goal I've put money aside and saved where I can to get this ball moving and we now have a Managing Editor (Jessica Murray), Health and Fitness Editor (Zhane Alexander), Fashion Editor (Libby Burgess), and Beauty Editor (Shalini Chatterjee). We also have a group of women freelancing for us and sending in content when they please - we're also encouraging male writers to come forward and join the team. So if you would like to submit a piece please email it to with a short pitch on why your idea/or article should feature on VavaViolet. All work is fully credited to you and will include links to your social media platforms. 

For the past two months, my team have been there behind me for every step of the way. They have all written exceptional articles that I can not wait to share with you. They helped to create this online magazine which is no longer just mine but all of theirs as well. In a sense, I'm saying goodbye to something that was once just mine but I'm thrilled to share it with such strong women. If you would like to get to know the team you can check out our 'Meet the Team' page in the navigation bar above.

But I'm not fully saying goodbye to 'blogging' as of course, a magazine and a blog are still two very different things. We will feature the odd post in the style of a blog post such as room tours, life updates and more. We will host giveaways and share our personal lives with you. You see I think magazines and blogs can join together, despite their differences and reputations. We want to be different to other magazines, other magazine editors and writers don't speak to you one on one, they don't share their personal lives with you, they just write an article and that's it. We want you guys to see us as people you can email for a good old chin wag or contact us if you've been dumped and need someone to talk to. We want to support our readers and be there for you just as much as you're there for us. That is one thing that will never ever change here on
