Hi! I'm Luci.
Welcome to my little corner of the world. Thanks for joining me while I explore more of it.
For those of you who want it quick, here’s the short story: I write music for BEAU + LUCI, write about music everywhere, managing editor over at Left Bank Magazine, and share my life, my love for food and travel, and my wellness journey here.
For those who want a little more (or are my mom and love me too much to just skim over the page), here’s the long(er) story: I'm a freelance music journalist, an indie musician, a yogi, a homebody with an overwhelming case of wanderlust, a foodie, and a holistic wellness enthusiast. I'm a daughter, a sister, a girlfriend, a friend, and - last, but not certainly not least - mom to two rescue babies: Charlie, a six-year-old miniature poodle with epilepsy, and Roxy, a two-year-old Border Collie-Aussie mix.
I never intended to start a blog. In fact, when I started writing professionally, it was the last thing on my mind. All I wanted to cover was music: releases, premieres, festivals (aka the rockstar lifestyle). All of which I do, and I love it. But the more I wrote, the more I felt like something was missing. There was another side of my life that I loved, and I wanted to share it. I was in the middle of living life beyond my wildest imagination - one that I was building every single day - and I wanted to inspire others as they did the same, share my adventures, mountaintops, and valleys, and post a few (hundred) pictures of my dogs along the way.
I’m so excited you’ve joined me on this adventure.
It's so nice to meet you.
5 Facts About Me
I love dogs, food, music, and traveling more than anything in the world. I really love traveling with my dogs to interesting places, to eat good food and listen to incredible music.
I’ve been in the music industry - as a musician, manager, social media coordinator, and marketing specialist - for over seven years, and work as a music journalist and editor for a few different publications. You can read my latest work under Bylines.
I met my boyfriend, Nick, who also happens to be in the music industry (in a band called The Howling Tongues, and as an insanely talented producer) at a show, and the rest is history.
Yoga, reading, and cooking are my favorite hobbies. I’m allergic to basically the entire world, so cooking is always half adventure, half scientific experiment. Don’t ask me what diet I’m on, either. The answer is somewhere between “none” and “anything I can get my hands on that I’m not allergic to.”
My latest #LifeGoal? Move to the beach in the next five years. Which beach? Lerici, Italy, Funchal, Portugal, and anywhere in Costa Rica are at the top of the list right now. I’ll keep you posted.
