About me


Who I am

Laia and Lucas in Fiji

Hi and welcome! I’m Laia, and this little blog is my personal retreat.

This is Lucas, my partner. We are in Fiji having an amazing and relaxing holiday! He plays an essential role in my life and the fact that this blog is seeing the light (lots of listening involved 🙂 ) so thought that he deserves to be mentioned. We are the two of us and Oskar, our spoilt three legs cat – the king of the house I have to say! 🙂 Oskar arrived to my life through Lucas, and since then he has become the centre of our lives.

I thought about becoming an amateur blogger (just for fun, you know) back in my early twenties but it has not been till now, when I’m nearly 35, when I decided to jump into it. Can you believe it?! Well, it’s said that it’s never too late, right?

My hobbies and passions are reading, dancing (not that much these days though), meeting like-minded people and my family. I’m originally from Spain and I’ve been living in New Zealand for the last 5 years after a gap year learning English in the UK in 2012.

On a more personal level, I’m constantly trying to become my better self, living meaningfully, thinking in positive, being grateful and appreciating everything I have in my life. I created this blog to share with you my journey to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life, a life by design. Would you like to follow me in this amazing journey?

Thanks for visiting!
