TTS started as a vegan recipe blog, a way to share my healthy cooking obsession with friends and family. It slowly morphed into a holistic skincare blog, by way of strategic social listening, aka picking up on what topics and content brand followers engaged with most. While working as an aesthetic nurse I started to gain monetary traction with TTS, getting offers to create freelance recipe and photo content for brands. I fell in love with creative freelance and took on more social work, including managing the account for my nursing employer.
