Let's start with what lies ahead...

Thanks for visiting Living La Vida Lola. Before you go any further, I wanted to welcome you and give you some pointers. The rest of this page is a quick guide to what we're about, and you can click through in any of the boxes to explore further.

If you'd like to be kept updated about what we've been up to, I will send you a newsletter on a monthly basis. I don't want to clog up your inbox so I think  this frequency is a good way to go. You can easily sign up in the boxes provided on the site but no pressure! I just want to deliver value and inspiration to those who like what we do.

Now, on with the overview. I hope you enjoy!

Our Ethos

It's simple, life is short and we believe that the best way to live it is by sharing it. Fun and experiences are the best way for children to learn, and being present while they do so is incredibly rewarding for adult family members.  It's not always easy to find the right balance, so our goal is to support you and your loved ones wherever we can.

Books for grown ups! These books are full length non-fiction memoirs documenting our travels. To be honest, these are my guilty pleasure. Being able to write and reminisce about the places we visit is wonderful. We also continue to support MS research through book sales, and if I can inspire you to follow a few of your dreams too, it's a bonus! 

Based on our travels, excursions and adventures, these children's books are written by Lola and I together. They include photos of places we visit and illustrations crafted by Lola's hand. Part two of each book is dedicated to activities and educational content, thus supporting my belief that the future of our children lies in our hands. The more we can spend time with them, the more they benefit.

These books align with the adult memoirs so that we can offer a package for all of the family to enjoy. Please click here to learn more about this project.

Living a Full Life

Within the blog section of the website you'll find articles and resources that we hope will inspire you to lead a full, passion filled life. 

Bernie's Book Club

Bernie's Book Club allows you access all of our books. Our books are published on other platforms, but I want to offer value to our readers. Full details will be released in October, but for an overview click here.

​Wrapping up

This is the bit where I fill you in a little more about us and how we live our life. Fundamentally, it includes creation of resources for families who wish to spend time together, embracing the world around us a classroom. I am passionate about the Montessori approach to education, and although Lola does attend a local setting I also educate at her at home and on our travels. In addition to this, I am a self-employed writer. Working at home is one of the things I have to weave into the equation, balancing it with being a single mum. 

My ongoing project which brings all of these things together is Travels With Lola, the series of books that allows me to share our journey with our readers. Lola is very much a part of the writing, illustrating and publishing process and loves both the research (read travel!) and creating the stories with me. 

I am currently restructuring our website so please bear with me while I tidy things up. Thank you very much for reading, we do have a newsletter which will keep you up to date with upcoming books, freebies and special offers. Please take a moment to sign up if you'd like to be kept in the loop.
