Welcome to my new site. “Happy Go Lucy” has come about after a few years of half-hearted attempts at blogging. I don’t know whats change but something has, I’m ready to do this, to put myself and my thoughts out there. I’ve revamped the look, chosen a new name and really thought about what I’d like to read.
Here’s what I thought of:
Fashion and style advice for real, working women who can’t and frankly don’t want to spend £600 on a pair of heels but do want to look a bit stylish and you know, nice.
Beauty reviews for products that are easy to get hold of, that are simple to use and work.
Food – recipes and ideas, reviews of supermarket short cuts that are worth your money (we ALL have frozen pizza in the freezer, why not share the good ones?)
Home and interiors: there are so many talented and stylish people on instagram sharing their homes ‘how to’ type posts seem a bit redundant, but lists of good shops and suppliers, ideas and inspirational people to follow would be useful.
General life stuff, I love reading about people – whats in their handbags, how they spend the weekend, cute pics of their dogs… what we often find mundane is crazy interesting to others.
What this blog won’t be
Snobby – primark or prada, aldi or waitrose…I don’t care, if its useful, beautiful and works I’ll include
A How to be perfect list – quite frankly I have no desire to live in a pale grey, cashmere wrapped world of artisan latte and green juice. Lets just be a bit real OK
Braggy – Everyone has good things and bad things in life, I’ll covert your house and you’ll wish you had my hair…it happens. This will be a snapshot of my life – yes one where I hide the ironing pile and make sure I put my lippy on – but to all extents it will be real and honest. I work for a living and don’t have a never-ending supply of cash…but I make the most of what I have and appreciate the little things. I truly believe being grateful for everything we have is the answer to happiness. Just because I take pretty pictures of my life it doesn’t devalue yours.
