Our sixth installment of The Expat Mama meets… brings us slightly closer to home, and to the tropical island of Borneo. Lucy Bartlett is the epitome of the modern mama- she’s not only raising super cute baby Arthur (if you like baby spam then you need to follow her on Instagram @bundlemum) and enjoying expat life with husband Ben (@bundledad, I like what they did there), but she’s also managing to find time to start up her own business, Bundle Beds. As Lucy puts it herself, life is all about the B’s at the moment with a baby, Ben, Bundle…

In our fifth installment of The Expat Mama meets… we head down under for a chat with Olivia of The Wilsons of Oz (if you’re considering upping sticks with your family for the sunnier shores of Australia, this blog needs to be you go-to). The blogger, instagrammer (@the_wilsons_of_oz) and expat mama is now mid-way through a four year stint in Australia with her husband and two young kiddies (and is on city number two), so knows a thing or two about settling and resettling in a new country. And, with a limit on their time in ‘straya, the family is already…

Fourth in our line up in The Expat Mama meets… mini series, we meet British Doctor, Harriet Stevenson, turned Hong Kong dweller and a fairly recent newcomer to the expat wife life.

As she puts it “Samuel Pepys said when you are tired of London you are tired of life, we weren’t tired of it yet we wanted to see what else was out there“. And so they – her and husband, Jambo –…

In the third installment of The Expat Mama meets… we get chatting to lovely lady and newbie expat mama Sarah Hills. Originally from the UK, Sarah has recently crossed the Atlantic and landed herself in the great US of A along with her husband Lee, and their two gorgeous children Jack (6) and Savannah (2). Sarah describes herself as a typical Sagittarius – one of the travelers among the Zodiac signs – and so no one was the least bit surprised when the move happened. This isn’t the first time she’s packed her bags and made a life somewhere new…

In the second installment of our The Expat Mama Meets… series we have a good old chinwag with serial expat-er Claire Hauxwell! She’s lived all over the U.S. and is currently found in Johannesburg, South Africa- although along the way she’s also ticked off Switzerland, Belgium and Mexico off her list. Not bad going for a woman/wife/mama also kept busy with raising two girls and two pooches (for shameless dog stalking check out her Instagram @mytheoryonblooming ). The ultimate Expat Mama kinda woman she describes herself as enjoys good food, good wine, good gin and as a lover of laughter.…

In the first installment of our The Expat Mama meets… series we have the pleasure of chatting to the very lovely Holly Vine! Holly is married to Charlie, and is super mum to her devastatingly cute 5 month old twins James and Eddie (for proof of my claim see Holly’s Instagram, you won’t be disappointed). She is also a freelance food writer, recipe developer, and content creator for a number of outlets in the USA as well as on her own lifestyle blog hollylikestocook.com . Originally from England, although Holly and Charlie had been living in Wales for 5 years prior…
