EMILY HERBERT
If Em was to describe herself in three words it would be tall, nosy and cheerful. She’s a writer, presenter and yoga and pilates teacher with some wide stanced moves on the d-floor and a weakness for a cracking cab sav.
Em writes for magazines, websites, communication companies, brands and people who have a story to tell, and writes about everything; from feature articles to transportive travel experiences to traipsing lifestyle pieces with heart.
