Bonjour! C'est moi, renée.
I'm a freelance writer, editor, and digital media expert based in Toronto, specializing in fashion, beauty, wellness, and home decor content. I’ve written stories for FASHION Magazine, Flare, Best Health, HGTV, and Food Network.
Previously, I was the digital editor at Canadian Living and Style at Home, where I managed the online content and social channels (Instagram being my particular jam). Writing and editing stories, updating the edit calendar, and managing sales campaigns took up most of my days—oh, and sometimes, I got to travel to fancy cities to report on new products, trends, and places.
Before that position, I was the Canadian editor at MODE Media (née GLAM), where I wrote and edited stories primarily on fashion and beauty. My favourite duty was travelling to New York City for fashion week to report on the shows and interview designers and hair and makeup artists backstage. Unfortunately, the company went under, and took all my work with it. (The articles I wrote for MODE and their original links are still listed on my Work page for the unlikely chance the site will relaunch with all old content preserved.)
Being an editor has always been a big dream of mine—I began reading magazines obsessively at the age of 11, starting with CosmoGirl!, before finding my way to Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Now, many moons later, stacks of old (and new!) issues are piled all around my shoebox apartment. Even though I’m immersed in lifestyle content for work all day every day, I still can't get enough of glossies and the joy they bring me.
My favourite topics to read and write about include personal approaches to style, the latest skin care technology and products, basically anything on goop, and literally anything about the French.
