About Me

Gin in a Teacup is written by Tara Lloyd (that's me!).


I am a 21-year-old student and freelance journalist, currently completing a degree in Media and Information & Social Sciences (majoring in journalism and anthropology) at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. I hope to become a fashion or music journalist, which is one reason I started this blog - to get some experience writing.

I started my blog in 2008 after being inspired by bloggers such as Marieke Hardy and Gala Darling. My first article was about the character Cassie from Skins. Since starting my blog, I have written more than 300 posts on a variety of topics including how-to articles, What I Wore posts, music, and product reviews.

I have also written for Word on the Street and Pocketto magazine.

In 2009, my blog was one of three finalists in the 2threads Best Australian Fashion Blog category.

When I'm not blogging, I am usually working (currently for Seed Femme at David Jones), travelling between Bunbury (where my parents live) and Perth (where I live), learning how to cook, spending time with my friends and boyfriend, going to a burlesque or a comedy show, or trying to get to a music festival.
