Who is Emma?

Yes, who is Emma? And what is BY EMMA?

Well, the quick answer is I’m a freelance lifestyle journalist, copy writer and editor who made this site as a parking spot for all my published articles, social media happenings and contact information. Everything you see here was written “By Emma”. See! Makes sense now, right?

I wanted you to find me and this was the best way to do it. So, welcome! Glad you could make it. Here you’ll find posts about my latest travel adventures, trending fashions, top tested beauty products, home-decor hacks and pretty much anything else the piques my interest (or that my editors commission me to write).

Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked as an editor in some of Canada’s top newspaper newsrooms, at multiple national magazines and for many trusted lifestyle websites. I’ve had long-standing weekly columns in The Toronto Star, Monday Magazine, The Kit, The Stylist Canada and The Huffington Post, covering everything from Toronto Fashion Week to decorating trends.

Currently, you’ll find my weekly travel-accessory review column “Travel Companions” in The Toronto Star every Saturday, along with my other monthly travel features. I also write multiple weekly design-focussed posts for HGTV, and regularly contribute to CBC, Slice, and Vitamin Daily, on topics ranging from celebrity fashion to travel tips.

That’s it really. I’m interested in tons of different things and write for lots of different publications about those things, which proves journalism school was the correct choice for me (it’s also where I met my husband, so bonus!). For my academic details, check out my resumé, also in this handy “About Emma” section.

Feel free to drop me a line at @byemmayardley on any and all social-media platforms. I hangout there a lot!
