My name is Alena and I’m the proud mummy of Harrison and Ella.
I’ve lived in the UK since 1994, after originally coming here to work as an Au Pair. I fell in love with my husband Paul, a travel writer, in 2001 and we’ve been travelling the world together ever since.
I gained a 2:1 in Fashion Design from the University of Leeds in 2003 and worked as a designer for Old Glory from 2005 until 2012 when Harrison came into the world kicking and screaming.
I’ve concentrated on being a mum pretty much since then and now satisfy my creative instincts by making clothes for the children and knitting.
We still travel frequently and even take our dog Falco with us on most of our adventures.
