Let's start with what lies ahead...
Thanks for visiting Living La Vida Lola. Before you go any further I just wanted to welcome you and give you some pointers. The rest of this page gives you a quick guide to what we're about and you can click through in any of the boxes to find out more and explore further.
If you'd like to be kept updated about what we've been up to I will send you a newsletter round-up. I don't want to clog up your inbox so I think every second week 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!
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.
Travels with Lola - Memoirs
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 and if I can inspire you to follow a few of those dreams too, it's a bonus!
Mini Memoirs - Educational Travel Books
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!
The idea is that these books align with the adult memoirs so that we can offer a package for all of the family to enjoy.
Creative Living Magazine
In June 2017 we will be launching our free magazine, Creative Living. Within its pages you will find travel, lifestyle and inspirational stories, all of which align with our intention to provide you with tools and resources to live a balanced life.
Bernie's Book Club
Bernie's Book Club is a digital membership to access all of our books. Our books are published on other platforms but I want to offer value to our readers. This gives you the chance to access all of them for a one off lifetime access fee of $7 US / £5 GBP.
In more detail...
This is the bit where I fill you in a little more about us and how we live our life. 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 and 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, a 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 putting it all together.
I am currently restructuring our website but this page will the hub of the things we get up to while we are in the UK, our daily life I suppose.
