Daisy Allsup is a freelance writer living and working in Amsterdam. She is the editor of weekly newsletter, A Little Bird, the Insider's Guide to London described by the Guardian as 'Vogue meets Radio 4, online'. Daisy contributes regularly to the Antibad Journal, an online fashion platform focussing on sustainability.
Daisy founded her own flower business, Flowers By Daisy in 2014, delivering creative, seasonal flowers each week to a diverse range of clients from families to a floating restaurant. She styled flowers for an award-winning perfume photoshoot for the Sunday Times Style magazine, built a 20ft flower wall beneath the Strand, hosted floral workshops at Wilderness and collaborated with many top brands including Liberty, Häagen-Dazs, Edit58, 26 Grains, Good & Proper Tea, Sheerluxe and more. She kept a diary of her experience in the form of a newsletter, which can be read here.
Daisy was an Editorial Contributor at angels & urchins magazine for 4 years. Her broad experience includes writing, commissioning and editing travel features and news pieces for print and online.
After finding her Grandpa's commonplace book last April, Daisy founded The Iris Letter, a kind of digital scrapbook in the form of a monthly arts newsletter written by ten professional women. For this Daisy's interviewed numerous fascinating women from Alexandra Shulman to Matilda Goad.
In October 2017 Daisy swapped her van, Dolly, for two wheels, and moved to Amsterdam where she is now working as a freelance writer. She is still able to provide flowers for one-off events, both in London and Amsterdam.
