Lucy Lucraft working pictures Brighton beach -1

Hello, I’m Lucy! I’m a freelance journalist, blogger & podcaster based in Brighton.

I started blogging about five years ago while travelling which used to be a HUGE part of my life (my husband and I were digital nomads for almost three years non-stop!) That’s why there’s so much travel content here. In fact, my very first byline was with Lonely Planet Traveller magazine and I’ve continued to write about travel for newspapers and magazines ever since.  

In 2018 I moved to Brighton where I live with my toddler and husband. I don’t travel as much, but I still share a few tips and tricks when I do go away. 

My main focus these days is living a low impact life. This is a super slow journey that I’ve been taking over the past year in an attempt to reduce my carbon footprint, the waste I produce and the negative effect my actions have on the world. 

As an environmentalist, I’m vegan and even my carnivorous husband has joined my plant-based lifestyle too (although, he occasionally partakes in a steak!) 

You can listen to the reasons why I’m vegan in the player below…….

I create lots of content each week. Here’s where you can get your fix:

Every Wednesday I write a blog post about zero waste life, muse on blogging and vegan life right here.

I host and produce a podcast about blogging and creativity called What She Said every Monday.

You can find me chatting about the mundanities of daily life on Instagram, where I also produce IGTV videos. 

You’ll find me ranting chatting about work on Twitter every damn day 

I have three e-courses for bloggers; one about how to crack into freelance writing, one to help you simplify SEO and one for people who want to start their own podcast.

AND If you’d like more zero waste tips, blogging advice and general musings – sign up to get my bi-weekly letters.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Lucy –

    I’ve been following your blog and have featured it on my site Check it out and let me know what you think, or feel free pass its use along to those who might benefit from it as a travel resource.

    My goal is to direct others to the travel content they need to plan a successful trip so hopefully that also means finding your blog. Great website, looking forward to more posts!
