Edwina – Creator & Chief Editor


Edwina O'Connor - The Life of StuffEdwina O’Connor launched The Life of Stuff in August 2012, as a creative outlet, and to share her passions … the stuff of her life – her adventures, interests and bits from her everyday life.

Growing with her over the years, through some of her most life-changing learnings, adventures and experiences. From births to deaths, marriage to motherhood, The Life of Stuff still reflects Edwina’s passion for life, and passions in life – and her grá for Irish culture, travel and lifestyle.

The Life of Stuff website and blog would not be made possible without the love and support of Edwina’s husband Patrick and their two beautiful boys Smith and Cassidy … oh and their little dog Charlie.

Guest Writers


From time to time The Life of Stuff will feature the work of ‘Guest Writers‘. However rest assured, each and every guest article published has been edited by The Life of Stuff Chief Editor, because it is vital that every published article is of interest and value to The Life of Stuff reader.

And on that note, keeping in line with our ethos, when linking to articles outside of The Life of Stuff – we continually revise said links to ensure they are working. And we do our best to only link to websites that provide suitable and beneficial information.
