Sophie etc is a Milton Keynes food and lifestyle blog helping you to discover independent Milton Keynes.

This is your guide to eating and exploring Milton Keynes. My blog posts make it easier for you to find and support local businesses, inspire you to shop small and discover something new.

Get a new perspective of Milton Keynes…

My mission is to inspire you to discover a whole different side of Milton Keynes. It gets a bit of a bad rep, but I love MK and I love living here ad I am all about celebrating great independents in the area.

Food is my favourite way to spend time, whether it’s cooking it, eating it in a restaurant with friends or discovering a hidden gem on my doorstep. I created the Milton Keynes Food Guide so that you can also discover some of the best places to eat in Milton Keynes. You’ll also find restaurant reviews and recipes using local produce on here too.

If food isn’t your thing, I write about awesome local businesses you can shop with as well as ideas of things to do in Milton Keynes.

Oh, and don’t miss Sophie’s Supper Club, a social dining event held in collaboration with independent restaurants in Milton Keynes. I collaborate with some of MK’s best vendors to bring you an evening of great food and company.

I started Sophie etc in 2012 as a way to document my life and personal style. In 2013, I was shortlisted for a Company Magazine style blogger award before I went to university in Birmingham for three years. It was here that I discovered my love for food writing. I was the editor of Redbrick Food and began writing about the local food scene on my blog. When I returned home in 2016, I used my blog as a way to explore MK’s local food scene. In 2018, I decided to focus solely on creating content about Milton Keynes and since then, I’ve not looked back.

Sophie etc has been shortlisted for Food Influencer of the Year in the Blogosphere Awards.

About Sophie

My blog remains a passion project and all of the money that I generate through paid partnerships goes back into the ongoing maintenance of my website and social media platforms so I can continue to create organic content. My background is in marketing, PR and content creation and I now run my own business, Social etc, where I help independent businesses use social media strategically.

When I’m not blogging, you’ll find me walking my pup, exploring new places, cooking or working up an appetite at the gym!
