Welcome!

Embers on the hearth is all about slow living in a realistic way.

A big part of my focus is on food, because that’s an activity that we all take part in, several times per day. But I do also post about other areas of slow living. Feel free to explore the website, and check the blog for the latest updates.

About me

As of the beginning of 2021, I am 35 and I live in Devon, England. I live in a medium-sized sea city, and I live in the actual city, not the suburbs. I share my life with my husband and two kids (currently 8 and 9).

I was born in Argentina, but have spent a third of my life there, another third in Spain and the last third in the UK, with some short stints in Chile and Norway. I also married a Ghanaian man almost a decade ago. Culturally I consider myself Spanish as that’s where my family is from and where my defining years were spent.

I am a fully qualified primary school teacher specialised in modern foreign languages. However, after some years working in restaurants in front-of-house and management roles I left the comfy waitress shoes for a comfy desk chair and became a social media manager and content creator.

I work with small companies and individuals (mostly artists and owner-run businesses) supporting their social media presence, writing for their blogs, and for some print magazines too. If you would like to talk about that, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
