Hey, There!
I’m Julie.

Thanks for stopping by.

I started this blog in 2017 as a hobby, I felt that I had so much to share, back then I was a full-time working and studying single mum of one and in need of an avenue to express myself.

A lot has changed for me since 2017, I am no longer a single mum or struggling fulfil my dreams alone.  I am now married and a mother of two.  My new home is Copenhagen and as I enter a new chapter in my life I thought it appropriate to update my blog and share with you my growth as a woman and as a mother, I also want to share with you the skills I have developed throughout my life, parenting and career.

If you are wondering a little more about me, I grew up in Colombia and moved to the UK, London at the age of 14 with my family.  I remember growing up in Colombia as always being sunny, with an empowering smell of my grandma’s petunias, she had them in every colour.

I love London.  I definitely lived the London life! Meeting people from all over the world, parties, dinners, concerts, museums, shopping.  I really enjoy the hustle and buzzle of London.

I had my daughter in my early 20’s, before you ask, yes, she was planned.  Motherhood at such a young age was tough, 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 whilst being able to enjoy my 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,
