My name is Corinne. I am 30-something years old and I live in York, North Yorkshire, England – I’ve been blogging here since 2012. Blogging is my full-time job and I have a few different websites.
I’m a wife and a mum – I gave birth to the most beautiful baby to ever exist in November 2020. You can read all about the birth story here, though I must warn you, it’s pretty grim in parts. Avoid if you are squeamish.
I went to university and studied French and Philosophy, I also lived in France for almost a year, teaching English in a French high school. I worked in retail management, operations, and stock loss all within the same company for 18 years. I quit my job to blog full-time after the birth of my baby boy.
10 years of blogging part-time alongside my full-time job paid off and I’ve been able to make this my full-time job.
My hobbies, other than blogging, include playing the piano, Olympic lifting and chorizo.
If you need to contact me, you can e-mail me at email@example.com, or leave a comment below. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
