Daisybutter is a lifestyle blog about being British-born Chinese, for those seeking endlessly to do good and be better.
Founded in 2009, Daisybutter is a lifestyle blog, written by Michelle Chai, a British-born Chinese writer and small business owner. She isn’t a big fan of writing in the third-person on her blog.
Hello! I’m Michelle, a girl who just loves pasta, her dog, a good oat flat white and afternoons curled up on an armchair with a (big) book. On Daisybutter, you’ll find an archive of features that share my stories about being a British-Chinese woman and about living between cultures in the UK. I also write posts full of practical advice and guidance for surviving your twenties, and I balance it all out with snippets of everyday magic, full to the brim with the little joys and loves that make me ‘me’.
I’m honoured to have appeared on BBC Three Counties Radio, BBC Radio Five Live, Voices of Islam Radio, and Respect the Mic podcast, talking about my experiences as a British-born Chinese woman. Excitingly, I am also currently working on my first book.
I’m your local friendly British-born Chinese writer and lifestyle blogger, creating content about mindful living and sharing stories about living between cultures in the UK; for those seeking endlessly to do good and be better.
Love, Michelle x
