Sophie grew up in Dubai, the glistening city where East meets West and becomes exuberantly cosmopolitan. Growing up in the U.A.E from the ages of 5 to 18, Sophie fell in love with the different nationalities surrounding her; Arabic, Syrian, Lebanese, South African, Kenyan, French, and naturally all the different cuisines on offer too.

The Fabulous Foodie blossomed during Sophie's third year of University at King's College London in October 2015. With a joint degree in French and English Literature, she has always been extremely passionate about the Arts, Culture, Food and even Tech which has led to an affinity with digital advancements in customer experience.

After completing an apprenticeship at BBC GoodFood Magazine, solo-travelling to Sicily and New York to review their bustling Street Food Markets and eateries, Sophie began a restaurant review blog which gained an enormous following of over 150,0000 readers a month and 50,000 Instagram followers in under 8 months. With restaurant blogging almost unheard of in 2015, Sophie wanted to break through the Fashion and Beauty blogging trends with reviews on restaurants combining her passion for photography with her love of writing and journalism.

Since graduating from King's College London, Sophie was asked to write as a Features Journalist for The Mail On Sunday with articles in print and online where she worked alongside food critic Tom Parker-Bowles for his weekly columns in The Mail On Sunday - and her restaurant reviews have been featured online by Global Fashion Brands such as Dune London and shared online by Celebrity Chefs such as Gordon Ramsay.

As a food blogger, Sophie's Marketing clients have varied from supermarket giants such as Waitrose and Tesco, to Casual Dining brands like KFC and GBK as well as Food Delivery names like Hungry House. With her roots based in the unique luxury of Dubai, Sophie has always been drawn to middle to upper market hospitality brands such as Gordon Ramsay's Heddon Street Kitchen, leading to supporting the Marketing initiatives of the world's finest luxury resorts both in London and in Dubai such as The Ritz-Carlton, The Four Seasons, The Savoy, The Corinthia, The W Hotel and The Shangri-La.

In November 2016, Sophie interviewed Celebrity TV Chef, best-selling author and Sunday Brunch's most-loved guest, Ching He Huang for the first issue of her online magazine and then Executive Chef of Duck and Waffle, Dan Doherty.

From 2017 onwards, Sophie has continued her passion for the F&B and Hotel industry and now works full-time as a Marketing Manager for Marriott International. 

Her guilty pleasures include staying on top of the best restaurant deals and most Instagram-friendly food spots in cities like Dubai, New York, London and watching her favourite cooking shows with Nigella Lawson, David Chang, feeling completely inspired by Netflix's food series Chef's Table, chuckling at the weekly columns by acclaimed British food critics like Jay Rayner for The Guardian, and still being that foodie being hounded by friends and family on the best places to eat and stay in London and Dubai.
