    Meet Deimanté | Expat Interview

    I’m really excited to be featuring the gorgeous Dei in today’s post. I’ve had the pleasure to meet her a few times now and she’s as lovely as she looks! When I first met her, I didn’t know shes originally from Lithuania and I must confess, I had to check which country it is. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always mixed up Lithuania and Latvia. I don’t know why and hopefully one day I never will. Anyhow, it’s a while back since Dei moved away from Lithuania but she recently visited Vilnius (the capital) and I remember being in awe from all the pictures she shared on social.…

    It’s that time of the month again – Expat Interview. This month I spoke to Áine McGovern, originally from Northern Ireland, who moved to Brighton 10 years ago, after her brother offered her a job as a software tester. I have never been to Norther Ireland, or Brighton for that matter so I’m very excited to be sharing this interview with you today. Expat Interview with Áine from Honestly Áine 1.

  • Expat Interview Alessandra

    Meet Alessandra | Expat Interview

    Let’s stick to the theme, America, in this expat interview as well. Compared to the previous two (Carolin and Dannielle) I actually had no idea who Alessandra was until she replied to my tweet saying she’d like to be featured in my interview series. I was really flattered and love taking opportunities to get to know new people. Alessandra is originally from Florida, only living there for a couple of months before moving to Georgia and later the UK. Most of her family still lives in the US which she goes to visit as often as she can. Let’s see what she has to say about having to move to a different…

  • Dannielle Expat Interview

    Meet Dannielle | Expat Interview

    So the first expat interview in my new blog feature went really well. It had good response on social if anything and I’ve got some more lined up for you. Since I’m gradually posting a lot of updates from my travels to the US this month, I thought it would be suitable to feature Danielle Smith from Chiccadeedee, as she moved to Doncaster from the US five and a bit years ago. I’ve been fortunate to meet Dannielle on two occasions and she’s as colourful in real life as her hair and it also shines through in her blog. Let’s find out why she decided to move to the UK and…

  • Expat Interview - Carolin

    Meet Carolin | Expat Interview

    I’ve been meaning to kick off this new feature on the blog for ages but something has always come in between, regular blogging, work, life in general etc. Finally it’s here, my new blog feature: ‘Expat Interviews’. I’m an expat myself (originally from Sweden if that’s escaped you) and I always like to share experiences of moving here with other people who have done the same. Why not better also share it with everyone reading my blog?! I’m hoping to feature one interview every month. An interview with an expat blogger who now lives somewhere in the UK, about why the moved, how they’re settling in but also give tips…
