Hi! I’m Lucy and welcome to my blog,
I started this blog in May 2020, after toying with the idea for many many years. After the world was plunged into the throes of lockdown, I decided that life was too short. I figured it was as good a time as any to FINALLY start writing about the things that interested me.
When I started this blog, I wasn’t too sure what I would focus on. Would this be a travel blog, a beauty blog, a lifestyle blog? Who knew.
Now, I think I’m a bit closer to figuring it out and you can expect to find lots of travel-related content, particularly living and working abroad and budget travels around Europe. As well as this, you can find eczema related beauty and skincare as I attempt to calm my frequent eczema flares that sometimes take over my life!
When my blogging journey began, I was working in recruitment in Edinburgh. I had graduated 2 years prior and in all honesty, I had felt a bit lost creatively and professionally. At the time, this space gave me an outlet to focus my wasted creative energy and ever since it has grown to become something I love more than I ever could have imagined!
Lockdown in the UK resulted in my life taking a complete 180, and in September 2020 my boyfriend and I packed up our lives in Edinburgh and moved to Madrid, Spain to “find ourselves”. HAHA. Nah but seriously, we fancied a bit of lifestyle change and didn’t want to spend any more time doing things we weren’t passionate or interested in. So, I found a job teaching English in Madrid and we have been loving our new lives!
When I’m not teaching English to hundreds of 6-12-year-olds you can find me sipping cerzeva on my balcony enjoying the wonderful Spanish SOL, or exploring Madrid and hunting down the best places to get free tapas!
