Online Stylist About Me
Amanda Start


Hello! I’m Amanda and am so pleased to welcome you to Online Stylist!

Here on the blog I hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration for stylish living, positive, happy vibes and lots of ways to #ElevateTheEveryday.

I live on the beautiful South Coast of England with my family and am never happier than when I have coffee in hand and cashmere about my person!

After most of my life spent in Finance (I know – completely unrelated!), via a chain of serendipitous events, a curious nature and an inability to step away from the computer, I forged a new career in the digital world. I wrote here about this crazy journey that began in 2009

It was a love of style, the joy to be found in life's simple pleasures and the need for somewhere to document my inspirations that eventually lead me to blogging.

This translates into me sharing my thoughts and feelings on leading a balanced, happy and inspired life. I'm a firm believer in designing the life you love and attempting to live it every day… even in the smallest of ways.

Whilst I aspire to a life of grace and calm, I'll happily share the bumps in the road along the way… because nobody's life plays out like an Instagram grid right?

If you love style that elevates your mood, interiors that make your home a peaceful haven and a smattering of blogging, creative and productivity tips then you're in the right place.

You'll just have to occasionally witness my obsessions with monochrome, cheese, Dawson's Creek, Christmas and strawberry liquorice…

  • / I BELIEVE...
    Life is better with coffee + dogs.
  • In showing up everyday + leading the best life you can.
  • That style is ageless.
  • There is no such thing as owning too much cashmere.
  • In being a cheerleader for other women.
  • Life is messy but that’s what makes us more relatable.
  • That being by the sea puts everything into perspective.
  • The simplest things in life can bring the greatest joys.
  • Joey was ALWAYS going to end up with Pacey.
  • Mondays should start with a coat of red nail polish and Fridays should end with champagne.
