Here to offer a lighthearted and somewhat whimsical take on day to day life, I’ve set up ‘Oh Deering’ as an excuse to fit just a little bit more writing into my life (baring in mind I am a copywriter and write for 8 hours a day anyway.) Hopefully, you’ll get some sort of entertainment out of it too!

It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now, however, the one thing that was holding me back was the competition….the competition and the worry that no one would give a poop what I have to say (I’m yet to find out)! I wasn’t sure if I had a niche that would make me stand out from all of the other amazing fashion, travel and lifestyle blogs out there in cyberspace. But you know what? There’s plenty of space for one more, right?

A little bit about me

Hi, I’m Sophie Deering (Get the blog name now?), nice to meet you!

I’m a 25 year old copywriter from Essex, currently trying to make my mark in the world of fashion!

Alongside fashion, my favourite things are my gorgeous golden retriever Cody, holidays, Saturday night trips to the pub, cereal and Netflix binges….. I guess my family, friends and boyfriend are alright too!

So to explain the name…

Those of you who know me will know that I’m a bit of a Calamity Jane at times, I think I inherited the clumsy gene from my mum (sorry mama bear!) Anyway, getting on to the point that I was about to make…the phrase “Oh Deering” was coined in reference to my life blunders (My friends Josh at uni even decided he wanted to make an Oh Deering sitcom showcasing my clumsy and most ridiculous day to day moments and when I started working at a digital agency after graduating they even turned it into a hashtag!), so I thought it would make a good fit for the blog!
