About The Author - Blog-tember Day One

Hey everybody happy September 1st!!!

This is day one of my Blog-tember challenge and its a kind of intro/about me style post so if you are new to Salad and Sequins this is where you can get to know me a little bit more or if your already a follower maybe this will tell you a little more then you already knew : )

If this "About the Author" was in the back of my own book the title of my book would be...

 A Gluten Free Girls Guide To Eating and Drinking Healthy on a Budget
- featuring breakfast, lunch, dinner and more

About the Author

Tamzin Pettitt is a lifestyle food and fitness blogger, qualified personal trainer and now author. Tamzin started her blogging career back in 2009 when she realised, after becoming obsessed with American food/fitness blogs, the UK blogging scene didn't offer much in the way of lifestyle, food and fitness blogs so she created Salad and Sequins. A place to share her love of delicious foods and exercise. Writing Salad and Sequins eventually led Tamzin to change her career and train as a personal trainer and she became qualified as a level 3 trainer in September 2011. 

Fast forward to 2012 when Tamzin was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance, for some daunting but not for Tamzin! She has taken it in her stride and has enjoyed learning how to use different ingredients to create delicious foods that can be enjoyed by the whole family on a budget. Tamzin believes that eating well and gluten free does not have to be boring, unhealthy or expensive. She shares lost of alternative recipe ideas on her blog Salad and Sequins along with free workouts and an insight into her daily life. So once you have finished this book go say hi, she would love to meet you!


Haha, that was actually really hard to write! But I always find writing about myself kind of odd.....anyway I hope you have got to know me a little bit more and by the end of September you definitely will!


Before I leave I wanted to share one more thing with you. For the past few months I have been adding my blog post to the App Dayre a mobile blogging application for people like you and me to share their story. I was asked to take part for blogging competition with the chance of winning a Dayre scholarship and although I don't think I will win the comp I did just get Editors Pick!!!!

Editors Pick means my page gets shown to every user on Dayre which is pretty awesome especially as i have only be on there for 3 months...I rather chuffed if I do say so myself! I think the app is quite unknown to the UK but its great so if you fancy getting your blog seen by an alternative audience then get on it!
