My name is Corinne. I am 30-something years old and I live in York, North Yorkshire, England – I’ve been blogging here since 2012. Blogging is my full-time job and I have a few different websites!

I’m a new mum and I gave birth to the most beautiful baby to ever exist last November. You can read all about the birth story here, though I must warn you, it’s pretty grim in parts. Avoid if you are squeamish. 

I went to university and studied French and Philosophy, I also lived in France for almost a year, teaching English in a French high school.  It didn’t help my career at all because I still work for the same company I worked for during my A levels and uni, but it was a great experience in terms of bringing me out of my shell, becoming independent and meeting my best friends.
I often wish I was still a student, as I am in love with learning and also getting drunk and laughing with my friends. My fiancee is a bit of alright, too. We are getting married in Spring 2022.
My hobbies, other than blogging, include playing the piano, Olympic lifting and chorizo. 
If you need to contact me, you can e-mail me on corinne@skinnedcartree.com, or leave a comment below. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
