Rebecca Ellis

Bring me a coffee in the morning or a cupcake in the afternoon and we can be friends. Bring me a good book and tell me about the new boutique you found and we can be friends forever. I am a lover of passionate people with big smiles, beautiful words, bold fashion statements and all the places I haven’t yet travelled too. As a contributing writer for Creative Drinks, my job is to scavenge the budding city of Brisbane and prove that the best things do in fact come in small packages – Brisbane’s creative scene being my prime example. Being a creative writer and self confessed bookworm myself, my articles will bring you all the latest news, trends, what to dos and where to go from Brisbane’s creative writing scene. I also hope to drop in on the fashion page every now and again to give you the latest and greatest from the ever fabulous, buzzing world of fashion!
