Memoirs So Luciie is a (currently) London Living Plant-based foodie, lifestyle and travel blog run by me , Luciie – An orange-haired socially-awkward wandering foodie using photography to share it with the world… Which basically just means I’m happy to go-a-wanderin’ for good food and adventure – braving new food, people, experiences and more and bringing you along for the ride.
And lets not forget Rhys ( or ‘R’ as I lovingly refer to him) , my partner in crime , dragged along to every where along the way and residential ‘grumpy man’ voice of the blog ;P
There’s nothing I love more than discovering new food, brands, restaurants/eateries and adventures.
After a childhood of travelling from Turkey to Pakistan to Africa, in 2006 my family finally settled back in the UK. But I never really could let go of my itchy travel feet and in 2013 I wrote out a bucket list that fuelled a desire to travel.
Refusing to let my social anxiety and scaredy-cat tendencies stop me from doing what I love, that became a year of working to save money for what would become a two month around-the-world trip in 2015 with my partner, bundling up my fears and stepping out into the big ol’ world.
Fun facts – A few things I’m afraid of:
- Aeroplanes ( not the best for a traveler…)
- Fairground Rides ( I know – right!)
- Eating food alone in public
- New social situations with strangers
- …pretty much anything adrenaline inducing.
But I didn’t let that stop me – and I don’t think anyone should let their fears stop them from pursuing their goals one way or another. Because if I can do it then you can too!
I’d always planned to blog my way through the world but life got in the way and the blog never quite came together.
Still battling social anxiety and an ever expanding waist line, In 2016 I moved to London to pursue a Commercial Photography degree and currently enjoying exploring London, discovering new delicious food and brands, creating photo-shoots, reading and writing in my spare time, Planning future travels and coming up with new and exciting plant-based recipes.
All in the pursuit to become the person I want to be and live the life I want to live- bringing you along for the journey because we all need a tribe of our own.
All along the way I’ve discovered and enjoyed delicious plant-based foods- having last eaten mean in 2005!

What you can expect on Memoirs So Luciie:
As my tagline states : Wander. Eat. Capture, Live – This is a blog based around Adventure, food, photography and lifestyle content.
Which means my content will include:
- London & UK quirky reviews and to-do’s – Restaurant, event and experience reviews as well as quirky to-do’s across the UK ( and eventually, globally)
- Foodies Finds – including restaurants, brands and more. I’m obsessed with finding new foods and brands to try. Going to farmers markets is like a treat and discovering a new V/Ve brand makes me squeal with joy.
- Plant-based recipes – Simple, quick and delicious vegetarian and vegan recipes for all. From health-conscious to sinfully delicious treats.
- Random Wanderings and travel – for all the fellow adrenaline-lacking wanderlusters out there
Quick note * – I’m not here to try to turn anyone vegetarian or vegan. I honestly think that food should be judged for it’s taste and not it’s labels. People are so quick to judge when they hear vegetarian or Vegan and I want to show that as long as it’s delicious, who cares about it’s label! – Plus it certainly wouldn’t do our planet any harm for people to be eating a little less meat.
I’ll be setting up a newsletter soon so you can opt-in to whatever topics you’d like to get updated on 🙂
This blog has been over three years in the making. Always ‘never quite ready’ , scared of failing, scared of ‘doing it wrong’ but – no more!
