FAQ

The Working Line is a lifestyle, travel, and coworking blog. It was primarily created to fulfill the needs of digital nomads and travelers looking for ways to feel empowered and productive.
The Working Line is split into several categories, catering to people looking for lifestyle brands like makeup and scented candles, travel and food guides, and coworking spaces to study.
I have been a freelance writer and a blogger since 2015. I have worked remotely since 2018 and moved around a lot. Born and raised in France, I am half French and half Moroccan. I have lived in Paris, Rome, and London. I know the struggle of finding great spots to work, eat, shop, and stay when you're living abroad for the first time. I want to share with you what I've learned and what I'm discovering on a daily basis in terms of travel and food guides, along with makeup and scented candle brands. Things and places that make me feel at home, and will hopefully have the same effect on you.
I have been a certified fashion makeup artist since 2018 and have worked for some of the most famous makeup brands - MAC Cosmetics, Sephora, and Kiko Milano. Although I am currently not doing makeup, I am passionate about color and share here with you the best makeup brands in the world.
I am passionate about scented candles and it is clear that the trend is here to stay - here, you will find the best scented candles by brand and by scent, from worldwide famous brands to independent vegan candle brands.
I have been a freelancer since 2018, and have moved around a lot. It is a hassle to find the perfect coworking spaces and places to study when you first move to a country, and I share with you all the best coworking spots I find on a daily basis due to research and/or personal knowledge.
On The Working Line, you will find the best restaurants, coworking spaces, cafes and libraries, shops, and events in the main cities in Europe and the UK, along with a few guides in the USA.
I have designed The Working Line as an all-inclusive platform. Here, you will find different types of restaurants and cuisines, including halal restaurants, vegan places, street food spots, as well as vegetarian and gluten-free restaurants where possible. For specific diets, like halal food, I mention the halal status, as well as whether pork and alcohol are served in the restaurants I write about.
If you have any questions, or suggestions, or would like to work with me, you can email me at: ibtissam@theworkingline.com. I will get back to you within 24 hours.
