About Me

The Lusting Life, About Me

I’m Marianne, a 30 year old blogger living in the Midlands. And I’m obsessed with all things interior related! This little blog is a place for me to share all the things I lust after. I’m constantly eyeing up interior items, clothing, homeware & more… it’s a life long affliction (as is my unphotogenic Chandler smile-face!)

So, if like me you paw through interior magazines/ Pinterest daily. Or scour online clothing stores late into the night and are always finding new items to lust over (oh heyy Asos) then stick around as I’ll be sharing all my favourites items here.

By day I work in Merchandising & Marketing, but by night I am founder and author of the Lusting Life Interiors & Lifestyle Blog. I’ve previously enjoyed writing interior themed blog posts in my past role as Marketing Exec & Content Manager for the National Design Academy. And, I’ve worked for interior & homeware brands Laura Ashley, Pied a Terre and House of Fraser back in the day!

Achievements so far

As Content Manager at the National Design Academy, I helped get the brand’s’ interiors blog nominated & shortlisted for The Best Design Inspiration Blog category at The Amara Interior Awards 2015. Which, I was lucky enough to attend & got to meet the lovely host, Sophie Robinson.

My ‘She Sheds’ – Women’s answer to the ‘Man Cave’ blog post for the NDA was included at number 15 in Amara Interior Blog Awards The 50 Best Interior Blog Posts of 2015 list.

My quote also made it in to the Amara Interior Blog Awards Shortlister Interview: What’s the best thing about interior blogging? article too:


Whilst my How to de-clutter your interior this January blog post (blogged as Anthony Rayworth) for the NDA, was included at number 4 in Amara Interior Blog Awards Top 50 Interior Blog Posts of 2016 list.
