Hi! I'm Alison, one of the co-creators of Five Little Stars. I'm originally from the beautiful sunny city of Perth, Australia where I used to work as a TV news reporter. It was an exciting job but in my 20s I decided to take a break and travel to Europe to broaden my horizons. In London, I was very lucky to find my dream job and my future husband so I stayed for a while (...12 years!).  I now have two British children (a boy and a girl aged 5 & 3) and we've moved to France which I love! Writing, research and photography have always been my passion and I'm enjoying sharing my ideas, experiences and recommendations with you. I hope you find our blogs relevant and useful - that's my aim x

Hello, I’m Kate, and my husband and I are the proud owners of 2 toddlers. I spent 10 busy years as a civil law Barrister, so words were my life source. In 2014 I had my first child and in the space of the next 16 months, we moved to Paris and had another baby… it’s been busy! The boy and the girl are lucky to have some fabulous toys, equipment and gadgets (things that I like to refer to as “stuff that makes life easier”), and we are always kept busy with days out, activities and we love our holidays. I have been asked so many times by friends and family for advice, and find I enjoy helping people if I can. So Five Little Stars is a natural challenge to keep me busy and enthused, whilst juggling 2 toddlers still at home.
