About

elevatormusik aboutHello, I’m Gillian and I seem to spend my whole life online.

Elevatormusik began as a hobby way back when I was a student in 2010. Over the last few years it has grown into a popular lifestyle, beauty and fashion blog, and now it’s a huge part of my life.

The blog covers everything from travel guides and restaurant reviews to fashion wishlists and outfit posts. There are also plenty of beauty product reviews, blogging tips, life advice posts and tips about going freelance. Plus, as I’m based Edinburgh, there’s lots of local content too featuring my favourite haunts in the city.

Wondering where to start? A few of my most popular posts include:

As well as being a long-time blogger, I’m also a freelance social media manager and writer. I get to work with lots of fantastic small businesses on exciting, creative projects – basically, it’s the best. I usually spend my days writing articles, take photos, creating content and connecting brands to new customers through social media. Find out more about my freelance work here.


When I’m not busy writing new posts for Elevatormusik or working my social media magic for my clients, you’ll probably find my doing what most 26 year olds do: browsing Pinterest for dream home inspiration, getting excited about ordering new bed sheets or pyjamas, and spending far too many hours watching Pinterest. Failing that, I’ll probably be working on yet another pet project of mine – Every Edinburgh.

As you might have guessed, I love social media. Pop over and say hello on Twitter, browse some pretty photos on Instagram, give my Facebook page a like, join in the Pinterest dreaming or get to know me better through my Youtube vlogs.
