Meet The Team: Edwina O’Connor

Travel, Culture & Lifestyle Writer & Chief Editor

Edwina built and launched The Life of Stuff as a creative outlet in 2012. Evolving from a pop culture, travel and lifestyle blog into an award-winning Irish Travel, Culture & Lifestyle website, you’ll find the articles Edwina writes for The Life of Stuff are all about the stuff of life, and inspired by the stuff of her life in Ireland.

From family travel adventures with her husband and two little boys, to chilling out at home watching films. From dining out at the latest hot sensation, to growing her own food! She’s renovating her home, and growing her garden. Trying to stay healthy in body but most importantly mind. She’s schooling and studying, learning and growing, constantly sharing her knowledge and passion for travel, culture and life – and for most of the time, Edwina dances along life’s path as she does so. Because although she’s not a hoarder she is truly grateful for the stuff of life and her ‘The Life of Stuff’.
