a Q and a post with lucy
here are a couple of questions i thought of to ask lucy for a Q and a post, and her answers 🕊🌸
1. you created a beautiful blog (on wordpress) called ‘eat move empower’ and your blog is noted to include ‘passionate pieces focused on food and lifestyle !’ could you describe a bit about the name you created and chose for your blog, ‘eat move empower’, and also about how you were inspired to first create your blog ?
lucy: thank you! for a year and a half, my blog was called “le minimal edit” but after a while, i found that it didn’t fit with my pieces and where i was going. so “eat move empower” came from my love of food and cooking, and my love to exercise and keep fit. then i chose “empower” because since creating my blog, my “think pieces” on empowerment and other pieces such as gratitude have been such a dream to write and create. it then perfectly summed up everything i love and enjoy. i was inspired to create my blog through friends and family after people were regularly coming to me for food recommendations, recipe ideas and other general recommendations so i thought i would just compile everything on one place into a blog.
2. a couple of subjects of posts on your blog include food and lifestyle (travel, health and wellness, beauty care and ideas and inspiration) and a couple of favourite posts I enjoyed reading a lot just recently include a think piece post about gratitude and a post about a feminine and natural eau de parfum spray created be le labo, called fragrance: a new favourite ! are there any kinds of posts which could be your favourite to write and create and publish and which you could also be hoping a lot to keep on creating in future for your blog ?
lucy: my favourite posts to write are think pieces but also any posts on food and travel. i think that is largely to do with the fact as a reader these are the posts i love and read regularly. i hope to continue and to create more food and travel recommendations but also expand on my think pieces. by covering more topics that i am passionate about such as feminism and other topics like “equality within the workplace”.
3. are there any care tips you could share with some one who could be hoping to look after themselves as much as possible ? could include beauty care and skin care, a comfy sleep, books, a natural and nourishing recipe (i truely love the sound of all of the recipe posts published on your blog a lot, including the one about the hazelnut and almond balls and the matcha latte recipe and all of the photos are so beautiful and simple and clear with beautiful warm lighting !)
lucy: thank you! i would say that from my own experience, good food, good sleep and surrounded by those you love in those times when you want to look after yourself. my perfect night of self-care would be to cook either for myself or others, something nourishing and warming like a sri-lankan curry or dhal (i am obsessed with curries) then finished off with some dark chocolate for dessert. at the end of the night, i would do my skincare and a drink a lot of water and either just chill with my friends or family or read because i find it very relaxing and calming.
4. could you note a couple of possible favourite things you love, enjoy a lot or could always be inspired a lot by, which could may or may not be included in posts up on your blog ? (could include care and self care, books, music, inspiration, poetry, a favourite teacher or a friend, animals, a favourite place to be)
lucy: i would say that my favourite things that i enjoy are travel, in particular la, california. after going there in 2019, it utterly captured my heart and soul and truly feel like it has my heart and cannot wait to go back there sometime soon. i found it to be so inspiring and because I am quite active, the lifestyle suited me. i love catching up with friends, whenever i see one of my friends and we always love to catch-up and walk around the city whilst having a coffee and some fresh street-food.
but also i love the simple things like a walk in the countryside with my dogs, some good plant-based food with my family and friends.
5. are there any ideas or care tips you could have for some one who could also be hoping to create a blog ? (could include about ideas for posts, photos, how to choose a name or creating on wordpress)
lucy: i would say firstly choose a name that personally inspires you and when you see it, it makes you feel excited and gives you that buzz. i found that as soon as i changed mine, it gave me a new sense of inspiration. but to write about things to enjoy and love, and not to worry about all the things you think you need to write a blog because you don’t need them. just a good mobile camera, a good eye and writing about the things you enjoy and love.
6. is there a quote you love, which always uplifts and inspires you ?
lucy: change your mindset, change your life – because as soon as i heard this it was at a time it was really needed, it helped me to change my mindset and change my perspective. when you see things in a new way, it definitely can change parts of your life. we never have to stay the same person if we don’t want to be, we can all change for the better if that’s what we need and want.
