Vanilla Papers - a slow travel blog

About

Hey there! My name is Dee. I’m a slow living writer and the face behind Vanilla Papers. I help overwhelmed women by offering practical habits to build a slower life.

THE VANILLA PAPERS STORY

I left behind a thankless corporate job at a business magazine for a slower life on my own terms.

I didn’t want life to pass me by while I got caught up in the hustle and worked for a status I didn’t really want anyways.

GET TO KNOW ME

Born in Poland, I grew up in the US and currently live in Cairo, Egypt with my husband and two cats.

I love cardamon coffee late in the morning, basking in the nearly year-round Egyptian sun, cuddling with my cats (of course), long novels (especially Victorian) and downtime with my family over a good movie.

WHY I DO IT

I’m passionate about helping women regain control of their time and get moments of serenity in their hectic lives. I love hearing from busy women that I helped them navigate through stress or brought new, meaningful habits into their days.

I have a practical approach to slow living. And I don’t believe slow living should be reserved for long weekends and vacations only.

To get the full benefits of slow living, it must be incorporated into daily life in actionable and realistic ways.

Small yet consistent habits in everyday life make a huge and lasting impact.

I’m all about making those habits happen.
