Welcome to Left-Hand Scribbler! If you’re looking for the inside scoop on all things Melbourne, travel and lifestyle then you’ve found the right place.


My name is Julia and I’m a lifestyle blogger and freelance writer. Born and bred in Melbourne, it’s my favourite city and I struggle to imagine living anywhere else. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve looked! From Japan to Thailand, Hawaii to Europe; I’m working my way through a scratch map and hoping to cross off more new destinations very soon.

After some valuable intern experience with The Urban List and a year in content marketing with the friendly crew at MyDeal.com.au, it was time to follow my real dream. To become my own boss and bring awesome content to many more blogs and publications. If you’re interested in working together visit the Work With Me page for all the details you’ll need.

As for this blog – you’ll find everything from food and movie reviews to travel and lifestyle articles. I’ll be keeping you up to date on all the events, activities and trendy happenings around Melbourne. Plus, tried-and-true travel tips on destinations, surviving the flight and making your budget last.
