I’m Lucy (aka LuluBeans) and I’m a mum, part-time HE marketer and trainee masseuse. I love independent travel and quirky places and spaces. Together with my boys, we love being outdoors and learning about nature, culture(s) and language.

Family life is often hectic. With little time to call my own I aspire to upskill, down-clutter, get healthier and live simpler! Watch out for evidence of this very slow transition in some of my posts, in between motherish musings, travel experiences and the occasional political rant.

We are an English-Irish family living in beautiful Brighton. Our other ‘home’ places are northwest Ireland and the Peak District, which we think makes us pretty lucky.
