Hiya, I'm Lucy - a native Wellingtonian. I've lived in Wellington nearly all my life. Thanks for stopping by!

I love Wellington and think it is one of the best places in the world to live - but I didn't always feel like that.  All I needed to do was do a bit of digging and unearth the stories of the innovative and passionate people of Wellington to totally change my perspective. Blogging seemed like the easiest way to to document Wellington through it's residents.  The Residents is a way to present cool stuff about Wellington and its people. It makes it easier to find out about, and connect with, the wonderful insights and ideas of the people who make up the residents of Wellington. Posts go up Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7am weekly and at random times if I do a Saturday post, but usually afternoon.

In 2016 I won the Wellington on a Plate social media reporter competition & took over the festival social media for three days. I've also been published in the world's first major blogger International Magazine 'Blogosphere' (UK) and went on my first press trip to Thailand in November 2016. That month I also presented a workshop on Blogging Hacks at The Fantail Network annual symposium at the ASB Cube in Auckland, New Zealand. I've given workshops for Collider at Biz Dojo Wellington and even was on the cover of Wellington Woman Magazine in March 2017. ALSO, I was lucky enough to be nominated in April 2017 for an Absolutely Positively Wellingtonian Award for my work on The Residents... and WON!!

Who knows what adventure is next?!
