I've contributed to, among others: American Express Destination Guides, Budget TravelBust Magazine, Fathom (contributing editor),  Gridskipper (weekly column), The GuardianHarper’s Bazaar (weekly column), HiP Paris (column), Hitotoki, The Tourism Board of Paris (Comité Régional du Tourisme Paris Ile-de-France) and Metro.

I’m also a copywriter for brands that align with my interests. I’ve worked with fashion, perfume and natural wine companies. 

My writing is often accompanied by my own photographs and I have a huge archive, which is always being added to. A selection of images taken around Paris, mostly on film, can be found here.

I founded the blog Lola is Beauty in 2005, to cover my then favourite subjects of clothes and travel. I now post here at C / O Journal, and can be found on Instagram: @claireoldman.
