On this blog, you’ll find posts about inspiration, style, faith, travel, food, beauty, personal musings and so much more.
It was junior year in high school when I’d decided to become a photographer. I’ve always been a natural observer. I remember watching films and viewing work by Gordon Parks and wanting to be just like him. In college, I studied to become a photojournalist; Mr. Parks’ visual take on the world was my inspiration. When I officially started this blog back in January 2010, I wanted to chronicle my love of photography. The goal was to use this space as a 365 day project. Six years later, I’m still exploring and sharing with you what I see through colorful storytelling. Sharing what I see in the world with you is what I love.
Hola! I’m Lucy and I love inspiring women to live an authentic life through written, transparent truths. I believe that deep down, we have an idea of who we are at our core. I believe that the truth, no matter how raw, is the only thing we should accept and understand. I incorporate a visual aspect to my writing because that’s how I see beauty. My resources are my perspectives. My tools are my lessons. Welcome!
I’m inspired by many things – emotion, faith, photography and culture – and I like to share what I’ve learned with you. I consider myself to be a creative, my opinions and ideas are always evolving. You can say my personality is a good bit of Zooey Dechanel and Audrey Hepburn. I [used to] love bacon (all about that pescatarian, part-time vegan life now), and I still love Jesus and tattoos.
When I’m not blogging, I’m most likely exploring new restaurants around town, traveling, taking pictures or reading blogs dedicated to SELF – awareness, development/discovery and, expression.
I’ve written close to 800 posts on this blog. Unfortunately, I won’t be updating this sacred place any longer. I am working to organize this blog so that it works more like a portfolio for me. But until then, you should know that I’m kind of a big deal. I was famous once. Tastemaker Magazine recognized and nominated as one of the Best Lifestyle Bloggers in 2014. Annnd, I was on the same page as Ludacris and Usher in Jezebel Magazine. I’m humble, I promise.
While I haven’t been blogging, I’ve been doing other things, like writing a book and freelance writing. Also, stay up to date with me via my newsletter, where I receive access to a free library of worksheets and other resources relevant to living an authentic life. Check me out!
