About Hey, I am Lili
The blog was born in December 2016 after I moved to Finland with my family. After 5 years as a pastry chef in Brazil, I wanted to use this new opportunity to live a more balanced life. With this, I realized I wanted to have a place to share information and feel closer to people! To write things that could be useful to others, to share emotions, my experiences and even make new friends around the world. Something like hey, I am Lili, come on in and be welcome! So don’t be shy if you wish to get in touch!
I have many passions in life, so you will find a variety of subjects within the themes beauty, fashion, health, living, travel and food! It is a space that I share love and things that I like; were I invite friends to share theirs as well, and where I try to inspire people to have a happier lifestyle!
I hope you can feel all the love involved in each post, that you can find information that you like and take a moment to subscribe to our newsletter at the end of this page!
I will love to have you always around! ♥
I am half Brazilian half Peruvian and raised in a city called Campinas in Brazil. I am around the thirties, very Pisces and married! I graduated in Hotel Management by the Centro Universitário Senac in São Paulo and have a specialization in pastry! I worked in hospitality while studying, at Disney World for a college program and traveled the world as a cabin crew while living in Dubai.
From 2011 to 2016, I had my own pastry atelier called Es dulce. It was in my hometown and I had the opportunity to be part of many love stories and make dreams come true! I was very happy during the last 5 years and now, it is time for new experiences in Finland as a blogger.
I just have this passion for life! Living is a blessing and I try to make the most of every moment I have. You will see me excited in every trip I make. You will feel the love in every recipe I share and in the healthy tips I find. Probably I will tell you how awesome all the series I watch at the same time are and many other everyday things in life. We can even have a girly chat about beauty and fashion, which I love. I will also make sure you get to know a bit more about this country that is our new home.
More important in life? To laugh until I have cramps, a good wine and people I love always around!
