Hello! I'm Sarah. A Northern cactus hoarding, plant growing, tattoo appreciating colourful illustrator and everything blogger currently residing in the UK. 

With my roots in a small coastal town in England, I did some growing up and then moved to Preston to study Illustration, my life long career dream, at university.  My blogging journey began as a hobby in 2015 and remains so since!

The Scarlet State has blossomed little-by-little over the past couple of years into a cosy corner of the internet where topics such as living well, cruelty free beauty, mental health, interior and taboo are talked about often.

I reserve a space here too for my personal thoughts- from happenings in my daily life to my take on current events, but fear not! The Scarlet State is a place of positivity, inspiration and relaxation. So please, grab a cuppa (my favourite beverage), sit down and have a browse. We have lots of catching up to do.

Feel free to say hey on Instagram and Twitter too!
