About Sarah

Thirty-seven years young, I hail from eastern England, in a large town an hour away from London.

Happily married with three delightful young children, I recently decided to take time out from my career as a primary school teacher to become a stay-at-home mum. This blog has been started to help me identify and focus on the beauty and elegance of everyday life and create a record of observations relating to everyday chic and living well.

I have long been a believer in savouring ‘les petit plaisirs’ of life. Life in continental Europe fascinates me, especially the Latin-based language speaking countries of Italy, France and Spain. Spending seven months aged eighteen as an au-pair living in Italy was a wonderful, pivotal experience and the chic Italian women I came into contact with, as well as the general Italian way of living, imparted a huge amount of  inspiration which has stayed with me. Naturally, I shall be sharing it with you!

There’s also a theme of self-development running through many of my posts, because being intentional about improving ourselves and our lives means that we are far more likely to achieve our optimal way of living.

Please follow my blog by adding your email to the right –> I intend to add new posts at least weekly with inspiration for living chic and well on a budget in all aspects of life, with a distinctly European influence. 😊
