Work with me

Hello, I’m Shawna! I’m a Scottish/Malaysian who moved to Edinburgh to study, fell in love with the city, and have lived here ever since. Exploring Edinburgh started as a way of documenting my wanderings around the city and over the years it has branched out to different parts of Scotland, UK, and even NYC. I've also been blessed with the wonderful opportunity to write a book called "Pockets of Pretty: An Instagrammer's Edinburgh" which is published by Black & White Publishing.

I've continued to share my explorations in Edinburgh and beyond, but in the last year or so I've started partnering with brands which I think are a good fit. I've worked on a range of campaigns including Instagram posts, Instastories, press trips, blog posts, and YouTube videos, so if you like to if you'd like to have a chat about the possibility of working together or to request my media pack, drop me an email at

Look forward to hearing from you!
