About Me

clare-hillier-checks-and-spotsHello! My name is…Clare


By day…I am a mama of two and a Brand Storyteller. I work with fashion and lifestyle brands to create a narrative that connects with the hearts and minds of their target market. After all, it’s not what you say – it’s how you say it.


Checks and Spots is…dedicated to checking out and spotting fashion, beauty, design and lifestyle to inspire and amuse. It is a chronicle of all the things that make me look twice.


I’m still can’t believe…that I was awarded Kidspot’s Voices of 2014 and Best Beauty and Lifestyle blogger!
