About Me

Hi, I’m Julie

Thanks for stopping by.

It’s about time I update this page, a lot has changed since I started this blog in 2017.  Back then I was a single mum finishing my university degree and working a full-time job.  I was just starting to get serious with my now husband.

In a nutshell, I am Colombian but lived in London most of my life and is the place I call home, my immediate family, my friends and job are in London.  I have two children 12 years and 7 months, I am married to a Dane which is why we recently made the leap and moved to Denmark with the kids (at least for the duration of my maternity leave) I love an adventure!

If you are wondering a little more about me, I grew up in Colombia and moved to the UK at the age of 14.  My sister and I spent most of our time at our grandparents. I loved my grandparents’ home which I remember it as always being sunny, with an empowering smell of my grandma’s petunias, she had them in every colour.  

At 14 we moved to London where I lived for around 20 years, I love London.  My family and friends are in London. My teenage years were in London, I definitely lived the London life! Meeting people from all over the world, parties, dinners, concerts, museums, shopping.  I really enjoyed the hustle and buzzle of London.

I had my daughter in my early 20’s (planned), motherhood at such a young age was tough and I guess age was one of the reasons my relationship broke down and I became a single mum.  I had some pretty tough years but I am very fortunate to have an amazing network around me that enabled me to do a little better for myself and my daughter and also to enjoy life.

Now, I am married to a Dane and we are trying out the Scandinavian way of life.  I always dreamed of living somewhere else and when Brexit happen, we thought why not?  Scandinavians are supposed to be really happy, have a good work and life balance.  I guess maybe now I want to slow down a bit and concentrate on new things, I definitely feel that I am entering a new chapter.

I hope you can join me in my new life journey.

Until next time, stay safe & kind,

Julie x
