L.A. living – part one

L.A. living – part one

Our stay in Los Angeles started off in a way I will never forget. This had been the destination we had been most looking forward to. Benj being a musician and myself a journalist, we  couldn't wait to visit the glitz and glam of showbiz central and right from the get-go we were confronted with [...]

3 days pottering in Portland

3 days pottering in Portland

Next stop on our American adventure was the weird and wonderful Portland. Following on from our stay in Seattle, we were a little bit more acclimatised to the different culture in America so were more able to relax as we toured the city. Nestled in the forests of Oregon, Portland is kind of an undiscovered [...]

2 Sleepless Nights in Seattle

2 Sleepless Nights in Seattle

I've never been a fan of cold weather, probably not unlike most people. That's why this autumn, we decided to leave cold Canada behind and head across the border in an attempt to chase that West Coast sunshine. Buses booked, accommodation sorted for the moment and bags overflowing, our first stop was Seattle. Before visiting [...]

A weekend at Vancouver Fashion Week SS18

A weekend at Vancouver Fashion Week SS18

Over the years, one thing has become extremely apparent to me; you never really know what's around the next corner. Last weekend was a shining example of this little life observation as I found myself sitting on the press desk at Vancouver Fashion Week SS18. On arrival to Vancouver I knew that I was going [...]

Why I struggle to live in the moment

Why I struggle to live in the moment

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. - Norman Vincent Peale  As I sit down to write this, I've just wiped my eyes after having yet another (no doubt 'time of the month' induced) little emotional breakdown. To be perfectly honest putting into words the reasons behind this slip [...]

We moved to Vancouver, BC!

We moved to Vancouver, BC!

Welcome back to my apologetically inconsistent blogging and another post! I intended to write this one a little over two weeks ago but that thing called 'life' got majorly in the way and sitting down to write was unfortunately low down on the list of priorities as I attempted to set up shop in Canada. [...]

24 hours in pretty Paris

24 hours in pretty Paris

Ah Paris! To many known as the city of love and to all known as the fashion hub of Europe, if not the world. But what's it really like to navigate the twenty arrondissements that make up the French capital in just one day? Getting there: For this particular trip, Paris became an extension onto [...]

72 hours in Brussels

72 hours in Brussels

A fan of cute cobbled streets as far as the eye can see?Looking for cafes that will make the Instagram feed green with jealousy? A serious chocoholic? Then Brussels, Belgium is screaming your name. Having not heard too much about the French speaking city before visiting, I was pleasantly surprised with  what I came across. [...]

2018: Where have I been?

2018: Where have I been?

So I am for sure a little late to the party with the new year new me - esque posts as it is already one week into March, however in true Luce style it's better late then never. Actually scrap that, this post is less of a resolution stating list but rather a life update [...]

My balls have soul, do yours?

My balls have soul, do yours?

In February 2017, Nadra Shah set up Kitchen & Soul, a nutritious endeavour with a wholesome ethos. I recently was given the opportunity to experience her vision when I was sent a box of her energy balls. A sufferer from depression, Nadra sought to focus her energy into creating a positive, natural relationship with food [...]
