I’ve been featured! – Life of an Au Pair in Paris, 21 Steps & Beyond

Paris Buildings and architecture, Paris France

A few weeks back I wrote an article for 21 Steps & Beyond about my time being an Au Pair in Paris, and I have the pleasure to say that you too can finally read all it! It was wonderful to be able to sit and write about my experiences as an au pair, and is one of the reasons why I am enjoying The Au Pair Series here on my blog so much. Many thanks to Paola Peinado for organising this wonderful magazine, and for allowing me to contribute!

As well as my Parisian adventure, be sure to read the wonderful articles about being au pairs in Ireland and Italy! You can check it out here.

Roisin Astell received a First Class Honours in History of Art at the University of York (2014), under the supervision of Dr Emanuele Lugli. After spending a year learning French in Paris, Roisin then completed an MSt. in Medieval Studies at the University of Oxford (2016), where she was supervised by Professor Gervase Rosser and Professor Martin Kauffmann. In 2017, Roisin was awarded a CHASE AHRC studentship as a doctoral candidate at the University of Kent’s Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, under the supervision of Dr Emily Guerry.


  1. Congratulations!! Dan will be pleased, there’s plenty to read! He is really enjoying the au pair articles but wants to know when will you be blogging about oxford? X


  2. Gosh the Irish stories are heartbreaking. I’m not too impressed with the editing, yours has chunks repeated! But it’s nice to read your positive experience. Love Mum x
