Hey, hi. I’m a writer, editor and chronic oversharer living in Sydney.


Creating custom shopping content for brand partners and audiences, as Shopping Editor at the Aussie arm of BuzzFeed. There isn’t a goop I won’t put on my face for our readers and they know it.

When I’m not writing about what to clean your sinks with (snake drains, definitely look into them) or the benefits of a pimple patch, I love nothing more than to write about the beautiful and more painful parts of being human. You can find my favourite pieces here.


Tugging heart strings with editorial and branded content for Mamamia Women’s Network. Clients worth name-dropping include OPSM, the NSW Government, LEGO Duplo, Garnier, Huggies and Allen’s Lollies.

Also, writing product copy for Australia and New Zealand’s premier online retailer, THE ICONIC. You can blame me for all your impulse purchases.


Wherever you need words, I’ve got a mouthful. Say hello at marielasummerhays [at] gmail [dot] com.
