Leanne Bayley

Director of Lifestyle & Commerce

I'm Leanne, the Director of Lifestyle & Commerce on HELLO! I oversee the Shopping vertical on HELLO! and manage a dedicated team of incredible shopping editors who cherry-pick the best products for our readers all around the world. 

I joined HELLO! back in 2018 and within my role I create engaging shoppable edits within the beauty space (though you'll find my name on various articles on the site as I love fashion, homeware and travel as well). Ultimately, my goal is to entertain readers and help them make the best choices while they’re shopping. 

Before HELLO! I was the Content Editor at British GLAMOUR. In this role I interviewed huge Hollywood celebrities; from Britney Spears to Hugh Jackman, Katy Perry and Michael B Jordan. Once I was even flown out to New York to interview One Direction (and yes, Harry Styles is as charismatic as you think he'd be). 

Working in digital publishing was always my dream as a young girl growing up in Coventry. I went on to study Journalism at Sunderland University (which I absolutely loved) and moved to London and worked hard to get various internships. I then secured roles at Cosmopolitan UK, ELLE UK, InStyle UK, Fabulous magazine, Daily Mail Fashion Finder, Harrods magazine and many more. 

When I'm not curating shopping content for HELLO! readers you’ll find me sharing all of my favourite sparkly #SequinSunday fashion buys on my Instagram account. My interests include cooking, getting obsessed with a TV show (currently loving Yellowstone and all the spin-offs), going to the gym, bagging a designer must-have, perusing the Zara website, holidaying in Dubai with my sisters Jackie and Angie, and spending time with my family and friends.
