Instacrush: Lucy Rose Laucht

Lucy Rose Laucht

Hi Hart Beat! Like I wrote about the other night, I’m all about escaping this god-forsaken and freezing city right now. Instead of trudging outside into the dark to see La La Land again, I’ve lost myself deep down in the feed of my most recent Instacrush, Lucy Rose Laucht aka @lucylaucht. If you like Instagram accounts of beautifully shot beaches, camper vans and romantic cliff sides (and who doesn’t really?) then you’re gonna love her.

I’m not sure how Lucy made her way into my feed but since I’ve started following her I’ve also become obsessed with her current life situation. I mean, read this from her website about me,

A Brit in New York by way of Australia, I’m a writer and photographer with a taste for world wandering. I left the rainy shores of England some nine years ago for a year long, round-the-world backpacking adventure where I met my soul mate at a noodle stand in Bali and never really looked back. My now-husband and l are currently at home on the road in La Guaguita, a (sometimes functional) 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia camper on a road trip across America in search of the interesting people & off-beat places that inspire us to get out and see the world.

Lucy, you are living the dream! Like seriously how can we get to the level of “living your best life” that this amazing woman is at? Le sigh. I guess we’ll just have to strain our thumbs going back further and further in her feed. Right, Hart Beat?

Instacrush: Brilliant Bicycle

Ride Brilliant

Hi Hart Beat! This afternoon I want to share one of my newest Instacrushes that I’ve been obsessing over as of late. The account comes from a LA based bicycle company called Brilliant Bicycle Co. that makes the coolest and simplest bikes out there.

As you loyal readers know, I am an avid New York City biker and take pride in my beloved Bianchi. As much as I love my bike, ever since I came across the Brilliant Bicycle Co. instagram and website, I’ve been seriously considering getting one of the Brilliant bikes.

The company makes the options very easy by only offering two different types of frames, the Astor and the Mayfair, with each having either 1, 3, or 7 gears in so many fun, bright colors. I haven’t ridden on the bike but from what I’ve read this is the perfect, inexpensive, adorable bike for anyone in a city looking for a commuter bike. If you’re not ready to ride or ready to spring for a new bike then just follow @ridebrilliant and you can pretend, like me.
