I’m Bella. I’m a writer, commentator, editor and music nerd living in Stockholm, Sweden. My life is largely run by my cat Nova.
Having spent twelve years living in the UK and Germany, working as a freelance writer contributing to publications such as the Guardian and DIVA Magazine, I am back in my native, Sweden, working with digital content at Swedish public service broadcaster Sveriges Radio.
Over the years I have written for range of publications including the Observer, Grazia, VICE, The Huffington Post, Music OMH and Scan Magazine. You could also hear me chatting on the BBC from time to time.
My areas of expertise include social media trends, Swedish and British lifestyle, food, coffee and music; from heavy metal to the Eurovision Song Contest. My dream is to one day host the Eurovision commentary.
