Work with me


Hi, I'm Monique and I've been writing books and magazine articles for over a decade.  As a new Australian citizen, I'm seeing Aussie brands, destinations, and lifestyles with new eyes. As a mother of a tween girl who also loves photography and YouTube, we can create unique Mother/Daughter content.

AussieCottage is a new and growing brand - only launched in late February 2021. It serves people who want to learn more about delicious Australian cooking, crafting with quick projects, and gardening on a hobby farm.

My readers love learning about how to move away from apartment living and into cottage life, where we all have a chance to slow down and enjoy our natural environment just a little more.

Articles can include recipes featuring  Aussie-made specialty foods, tools for living more sustainably, gardening products, items targeted to middle-school girls, and travel beyond the big cities. If the destination is within driving distance of the Adelaide Hills, overnight accommodation may not even be required for a great article.


My standard partnership package includes the following:

  • 1 Original Blog Post, at least 600 words, with at least 2 photos. Including a "Hero Image" for Pinterest.

  • 4 Social Media Shares; Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram.

  • Promotion on the Facebook group every 7 days for a month after the post goes live, with an additional promotion every 30 days after that.

If you have specific requests for a partnership, please let me know!

I love sharing the AussieCottage life with my new online community. I am a wife, mother, photographer, cook, crafter, gardener, and travel writer. My News and Blog | Aussie Cottage explores the cottagecore and farmcore esthetic.

I hope you enjoy our journey into sustainability on this little hobby farm in the Adelaide Hills, in South Australia.
