Our team

Mariana Cerqueira
Mariana Cerqueira

Mariana is the Editor of My Imperfect Life. She has previously worked for titles including woman&home and Goodto, covering all aspects of women’s lifestyle — from beauty and fashion to wellness and travel. She was nominated for AOP Digital Journalist of the Year in 2020, and for New Digital Talent of the Year at the 2016 PPA Digital Awards. She’s mildly obsessed with reality TV (Love Island memes included) and spends far too much time checking her horoscope and figuring out the perfect curly hair routine.

She was previously the Features Editor at Rachael Ray In Season and Reveal, as well as the Food & Drink Editor and chief restaurant critic at Time Out New York. When she’s not doing all that, she can probably be found eating cheese somewhere.

When she’s not testing new products, Aleesha spends her time soaking up the newest bestsellers and Netflix releases, exploring different wines, attempting new languages and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jet setter after spending a year living in Madrid.

She has a background in design, having studied Illustration at Plymouth University but has taken a leap into the world of journalism after always having a passion for writing.

My Imperfect Life: buying guides & reviews policy

Our buying guides and reviews are tried and tested by people who are experts in their field and curated by our editorial team, based on what we think you want to know, to help you make an informed choice.

We include shopping links in our articles and, as a company (Future Plc), we may receive a small commission from retailers when you buy products from them via these links. We always aim to offer a range of retailers and products and our selections are always driven by editorial—our buying guides and reviews are completely independent of commercial involvement.

Affiliate & Advertising disclosure

We always aim to provide unbiased editorial created by our journalists and writers. We also need to pay our teams and website costs so we make money in a number of ways. We sometimes use affiliate links to products and services on retailer sites for which we can receive compensation if you click on those links or make purchases through them. From time to time we also publish advertorials (paid-for editorial content) and sponsored content on the site. When this is the case the content is clearly marked as sponsored or promoted, so you’ll always know which content is editorial and which is not. Future PLC is our parent company and has an in-depth terms and conditions page with a lot more information that you can read right here
