about | press

hey, thanks for stopping by! 

burkatron is simply a place where I share the things I love. creating easy, trend led DIY projects is an obsession of mine. from nail art to shelving I'll try and create an easy step by step tutorial that even the most inexperienced can master. 

I also have a penchant for all things fashion- from vintage to high street I like to share what I'm wearing and what I've been buying.

as for me? well I'm a central saint martins fine artist who stumbled into blogging in my late 20's (late as ever.) regularly found hunting for treasure in dusty vintage shops, avoiding the gym and annoying my better half with my instagram addiction!

I'd love to hear from you- feel free to drop me a line with any questions, proposals or pr opportunities.

occasionally I'll use affiliate links in my posts but I won't bombard you with them on social media. even more occasionally I may have a sponsored post if it fits with my content and more importantly my interests. 

I will and have always indicated if a post has been paid for.. no sneaky business on burkatron.
