THE ‘BE’ BEHIND BE-LAVIE: THE SHORT EDIT
I live in Leicester, a city in the middle of England (famously known as the city where they found the king in the car park – Richard III), with my husband Dr C. I call myself an experiential boutique traveller with a big focus on sustainability and sourcing ethically and responsibly.
To date I have travelled to around 54 countries, over 6 continents and yes Antarctica is on that list to make it 7 one day in the future.
As well as global jaunts and travelling in the UK, I am very keen to support local businesses and ventures in my home city. I endeavor to showcase as much of Leicester as I possibly can including local guides on history, hidden gems, foodie spots, street art, coffee stops and upcoming events.
In addition to travelling, I’m a huge veggie fine dining fan, which I always incorporate into my travels. I love to talk eco-conscious lifestyle issues and more often than not, you’ll find me hanging out in coffee shops, sipping on Espresso Martini’s, scoping out street art on my daily walks or perfecting my origami skills!
Be-lavie has a huge focus on travelling but also I love to feature lifestyle products and lots of foodie inspiration here but you can be rest assured that my opinions are honest and brands are only endorsed if I think they will align with my audience.
I’m delighted you’re here, so sit back, relax and allow me to show you a lifestyle through my lens, filled with inspiration for travel, lifestyle and sustainability with sprinkles of luxury.
