Carly Jacobs


Carly is the founding editor of Smaggle which launched in 2007 back when blogging was weird. She has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines. She's the co-founder of of blog school Little Blog Big and co-host of podcasts Straight & Curly (for life improvement junkies) and Sweet Teen Club (for those of us who can't leave the 90s behind). Hoop earrings are totally her thing, Benedict Cumberbatch is her Beyonce and she almost got run over by Myf Warhurst while out jogging one day.
