Sophie Bates
Commerce Writer

I'm a Commerce Writer based in London. Since joining the HELLO! shopping team in 2022, I've covered all of the biggest shopping events, celebrity beauty favourites, and royal must-haves.

I have a particular interest in staple fashion, and when I'm not scrolling through TikTok for the next viral skincare product or designer handbag lookalike, I'm writing about the latest clothing or footwear trend to hit the high street.

After graduating from Swansea University with a degree in English Literature, I worked as a copywriter to cover the very best fashion, beauty, and homeware deals for shoppers across the country. I have a keen eye for spotting a bargain – whether it be a discounted royal dress or an unmissable saving on a celebrity-loved foundation.

When I'm not online shopping, you'll find me contributing to HELLO!'s travel section and exploring London's newest restaurants and bars.
