Blogger of the Week: Emma Bates of


This week’s Blogger of the Week is a total British Boss Babe! We are thrilled to introduce you to Emma Bates of! Originally from London, Emma is a travel and food blogger currently experimenting with life over the pond in New York City! She founded her blog, (pronounced Kwee-Doray), in 2013 as a creative outlet to document her travels, lifestyle, and eating habits. Emma’s goal is to make Kuidaore a go-to place for delicious recipes, style tips, travel adventures, and restaurant reviews from all over the world!
