Carly Sharples


My writing on this blog generally includes the topics of travel, running / fitness and coffee. My posts often have an underlying theme of how to live life to the full and overcome barriers, in spite of mental ill health (I have bipolar disorder, OCD and anxiety).

I am happy to work with brands and PRs. I can offer content that ignites the imagination through collaborations or sponsored posts here at Forever Cosmopolitan, or via the brand's own website, blog and/or social media channels.

For business and sponsorship enquiries, please contact

I love to get out from behind the computer and attend events or press trips, so please do get in touch if you have something that would be a good fit.  

All sponsored posts will be disclosed to comply with legal requirements.

Items sent for review will be marked as such and I will give my honest opinions of products received.

Some posts may contain affiliate links.

Please note that I do not accept guest posts on Forever Cosmopolitan.

Brands I've Worked With:




Carly was a pleasure to work with for our Valentine’s day 2018 campaign. She wrote a wonderfully well-written blogpost which was thorough yet easy to read and met all of our requirements. We were also very pleased with her lovely photography and her own choice of product picks. We appreciate Carly’s promptness to turn around excellent content in time.” – Richa, from Debenhams
