About me

Hi. I’m Nadine-Johanna. I love travelling, fine dining, good wine and people who have ideas.

At the moment I live in Dubai, and while I am German born, I am British at heart. Too long have I lived in London not to call it my home. Until 2015 this blog was known as the German Girl in London and I hope that one day, I will be back. For now and while I am still sort of young (25 and on the wrong side of 20) I want to discover another country and culture. I am planning to stay in Dubai for a couple of years.


It’s not a secret that I move more than the average person. To make it short: 2007 – 2011 London, 2011 Brussels, 2012-14 London, 2014 Istanbul (I moved, but didn’t stay long), 2015 Cologne, January 2016 I moved to Lugano and I just moved to Dubai at the beginning of the year.


I started blogging while I lived in Brussels back on WordPress, I blogged once a month or so and while I used Twitter it was more to put my opinions on trashy TV shows out there. In 2013 I started a blog on Bloggers, the German Girl in London blog and 2014 was one of my best blogging years. After I moved away from London and without knowing when I will return for good, I decided to change the name to What Nadine Loves. That was in August 2015 and so far I have no regrets. 2015 was a quiet year and I hope to make 2016 even better than 2014. I want to improve many things this year and the first step is to improve my blog photography and get a new camera.


While I am not in London anymore, the majority of my followers and readers is from the UK. You can contact me at nadine@whatnadineloves.com and I am always interested in exciting blogging opportunities and collaborations. I am currently based in Dubai.

When I am not blogging, I run my own childcare recruitment agency based in London.
