Lauren

{Editor}
A northerner living in Northamptonshire, Lauren is likely to be found foraging in shops and markets for the next vintage treasure or even more likely to be found down the crisp aisle in Sainsbury’s. She is a self-proclaimed do-er but is more often found making a mess than tidying one. Well known for over-gesticulation and over-zealous dance moves.

Lisa

{Writer}
As well as writing for RMS, Lisa also has a job in the legal sector and a terrible two year old. Who’s not really terrible at all and is actually rather delightful. Lisa loves all things interior design and has a particular penchant for overpriced wallpaper. She is constantly pondering how to prettify her new build home and trying to persuade long-suffering boyfriend Rich that they need oak worktops.

Charlotte

{Founder}
Charlotte is Managing Director of Rock My Ltd, a job title that she feels is far too fancy. Charlotte lives in the West Midlands with her husband James, their daughter Mabel Rose, a cat called Fathead and an ever increasing cosmetics collection. She quite possibly owns too many pairs of short shorts and cowboy boots. Charlotte loves fashion, dancing in inappropriate heels, friends, family and life in general. She hopes to grow old disgracefully.

Adam

{Creative Director}
Adam has been alive for over three decades and has famously spent more than two of them looking quizzical in front of a computer screen. If he hadn’t been a web designer (with a secret dream of being a rockstar) Adam would have been a chef (with a secret dream of being a rockstar). Most of Adams life happens with BBC radio 6 music on in the background.
