About Me

Salut! I’m Louise, I’m 23, and I come from a lovely little town in the north of England. Back home I used to work full time at HMV but I decided to take a leap into the unknown and become an au pair. I moved to Lagny-le-Sec just outside of Paris from February to April 2012

I lived with a family who have 3 adorable little boys (aged 8, 6 and 3 at the time) and I tried to record all of my adventures with them – plus those on my own – on this blog. I also want to use the space as an opportunity to educate future au-pairs on what exactly it is that they do – there seems to be little information out there already – and I’d like to think that by sharing my trials and errors with anyone who’s considering following in my footsteps is some help.

I’m also very creative and love to write. Alongside this travel blog I also have a craft/sewing based blog – http://sewsensational.wordpress.com

  4. Hi!
    I was researching how to become and au pair in France when I stumbled across your blog (lovely by the way) and I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind sharing how you found your au pair position. There are a lot of scams out there and I am really nervous to be a victim of one! I would really appreciate any direction you could give me, merci!

    • hey Nicole, thanks for the comment!
      In response to your question – I’m going to do a page about how to become an au pair/what to expect, so keep checking and I’ll hopefully have it up next to the ‘about me’ section by the end of the day!

  5. I loved your blog!!! Im aupair also here in Paris and i thought that maybe we can meet each other, or make a au pair reunion! I added you on face!
    Hope see you soon…
