Me wearing vintage jumper. 4 tips for buying second-hand clothes by a Hopeful Home.

Hi! I’m Jenna Munday

My name is Jenna Munday and I’m a blogger who swapped the lowlands of the Netherlands for the highlands of Wales. Natural living, food from scratch, vintage homeware, and a handmade home are some of the things I write about.


I’m from a small town in North-Holland. When it was time to go to university, I decided to venture out to a big city. Utrecht became my city of choice and I finished my Bachelor of Law there.

When I heard that I couldn’t do my Masters for another year I had no idea what to do next. It was only two weeks before the new term began and I had already bought my books!

Two words to describe my feelings? Shock and panic. Little did I know what amazing things God had planned for me!

I ended up becoming an au pair for a lovely family outside of Caerphilly in Wales. I’d never been to Great Britain before. During those 10 months of work, I fell in love with Wales and a young man called Nathan.

After my time as an au pair, I returned to the Netherlands to study Company Law, again at the University of Utrecht. This period is what Nathan and I sometimes call the hardest time of our lives, i.e. a long-distance relationship.

In December 2017, Nathan proposed to me and I said yes. In July 2018, on completing my Master’s, I moved to Wales. Following our wedding on the 22nd of September 2018, we moved in together into a lovely rental home in St Mellons (Cardiff).

March 2019. Nathan started a new job with the National Trust where he’d be looking after an old house in the heart of Snowdonia. A cosy cottage in a remote valley became our new home. A new adventure began…

I currently work part-time in a cafe. After work I spend time with Nathan, bake, hike, read, and much more! In the past, I’ve had various hobbies and mini-projects. From Youtube Channels to designing diaries, the latest one is setting up a webshop.

One thing I keep returning to is my blog. Blogging gives me joy, excites me, and gets my creative juices flowing!

Much love,


‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.’
Galatians 5:22
