Meet Bex: Spitfiregirl’s New Editorial Design Intern

March 12, 2014

BEXIn what can only be described winning the intern jackpot, I am so excited to introduce you to my new interns! First up…all the way from…wait for it…AUSTRALIA!!! is Bex. And no, I didn’t hire her just for her cool name (though that totally helped). Bex is a whip smart writer with an extra stylish eye. I’m certain you’ll enjoy her as much as I do. Please welcome her to Team Spitfiregirl!

I feel like there needs to be a giant cake for me to pop out of right now. I feel like that might very well be the only way that we could show just how excited I am to be here! Alas, we have no cake, so we’ll just have to try and get to know each other this way. Shall we?

Ok, let’s start with the basics. My name is Bex – well, it’s Rebecca. However, Bex or Becca is what I’m called most often. I even occasionally get Becky, but very seldom is it ever Rebecca.

You might be surprised to learn that I’m introducing myself all the way from sunny Australia, and I couldn’t be more excited to be doing so. You might also be surprised to learn that I’m not actually Australian. I’m a Canadian gal who’s decided to call the land down unda (that’s “under” in Australian) home – well, for now anyways.

I’ve spent my twenties with a passport in one hand, and a pen, paper and camera in the other (maybe not quite literally – girlfriend has small hands). I’ve worked as a freelance writer, an in-house copywriter, a stylist, and photographer, all the while seeing the world and living out of a suitcase. It’s been a sweet ride so far, and I’m stoked on the opportunity that Heidi has given me, as it doesn’t restrict me to a desk, an office, or even a country (talk about freedom).

This new internship adventure is going to be a big challenge for me, as I would consider myself more a wordsmith than a designer. However, with my passion for photography, my love for details, and my yearning to learn as much as possible, I think that I’ll be able to impress all you Spitfiregirl homies.

Now that we’re basically best friends, let me tell you a little bit more about myself:
+ I am so very much a tomboy at heart. I love my kicks, my boyfriend jeans, my oversized tees & plaid shirts, and my blazers.
+ My favourite colours are the ones that come from a rainy day or the sea
+ I love the beach so very much, but give me a cabin in the woods, and I’ll stay there forever
+ I will regularly take a swig of maple syrup from the bottle – but only if it’s the real stuff (and preferably Canadian)
+ I’m not a religious individual, but I believe in being a good person and spreading as much love and positivity as possible
+ Both my parents are from Liverpool, England. It’s where most of my family still resides, and it’s where a lot of my heart lies
+ I am a big fan of books, weddings, stars, airports, black coffee, art, hot sauce, sweat pants, details, and notebooks
+ I am an even bigger fan of painting, baking, styling, decorating, hosting, creating, dancing, exploring, traveling, and laughing

So, what can you expect to see from me here on Spitfiregirl? Well, I’m hoping to dive into the world of tabletops, styling, desktop swag (posters, printables, etc), moodboards, and your daily dose of all things inspirational.

And what is it that I’m finding to be inspirational these days?

1. This blog is filled with so many stunning photos. 2. This print is from Cate Parr. 3. This Instagram account is from a fellow Canadian, and is rather exquisite. 4. This series from Madelynn Hackwith has helped inspire my recent wardrobe revamp (say that 10 times fast). 5. This new line from Urban Outfitters is everything.

If you’d like more of a glimpse into my world, feel free to check out my blog, my Instagram, or my Pinterest.

Again, I’m so excited to be embarking on this new journey, and even more so because all you lovely readers will be coming along with me. So, here’s to new friends and new adventures!

Peace & love.
~ Bex
