Blogging has been a great discovery and hobby for me.  I have learned so much in starting a blog/website. (If you are interested in starting your own blog check out my post here!)

Who am I?

My name is Jae and I am the blogger behind Make Calm Lovely. 

I was born and grew up in England.  I married an American and moved to the US, where I have lived ever since.  I love watching British TV (especially dramas like The Crown and all British comedy!), and anything vintage.  I love (and miss) the English countryside, and I love being out on the water in the summer.  

This blog may be an eclectic mix of things – but that pretty much sums me up.  This blog is full of everything that matters to me, that I want to bring to you.
