Welcome to my blog!

Come on in and make yourself at home....
What type of house guest are you? A shy voyeur content with peering through the window, hoping to catch a glimpse of who lives inside? Or are you bold enough to walk through the open door that awaits you, ready to get comfortable as we share experiences, opinions and passions? I warmly invite you to see what I have to say about life and interact with me as I journey through it. You might find a new perspective on things, or just enjoy the way I write. Either way, you’ll never know unless you come inside! Read More About Me

About From Adina with Love

My name is Elizabeth Adina. I’m a wife, busy yummy mummy and a blogalicious freelance writer whenever I can escape from ‘life’s obligations’ and grab an opportunity to do what I love!

I’m a proud Ghanaian girl by heritage and somewhat quintessentially British by nature. I have a love/hate relationship with biscuits….I love them, my waistline hates them! I love bright colours, bold prints or patterns and can be found adorned in them (never head-to-toe…yet), whenever I get the chance.

I’m mostly a jumpsuit, funky trousers type of gal but I am partial to a good curve enhancing dress, always with a touch of class and a sprinkling of sassiness! My motto is ‘a hot pair of heels go a long way’, with the exception of the school-run because the playground is not a place to waste a good pair of heels!

I can often be found laughing outrageously, being endearing with my cheekiness and dancing with delightful optimism, whenever the mood takes me and no matter who’s watching! Alternatively you’ll find me monopolising the home laptop while in my ‘writing groove’ or risking social obscurity as I frantically recall my daily ramblings in my notebook.

So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say – Virginia Woolf

From Adina with Love was born when my ‘pen persona’ refused to remain semi-comatose or silenced by life’s busyness. My blog is my expressive outlet, my home of creativity, a path for my writing to evolve. It’s a place to share who I am, things I love, what inspires me and what I learn (hopefully making me a little wiser!) as I journey through life. You can call it an eDiary of sorts, I’ll just call it my personal lifestyle blog!
