First things first, I’m Lucy Petricka, I’m 25 and live in the beautiful city of San Francisco, CA. I started blogging back in high school when I hit publish on a Star Wars themed Tumblr blog and I’ve never looked back! Though my interests and goals have changed since then (even though I still love Star Wars) the passion for blogging has remained the same. In 2013 after graduating college I was inspired to share my love of fashion and style with the world so with my mom by my side and no clue what we were doing, Her Haute Mess (Pronounced Her “Hot” Mess) was born! I remember teaching my mom how to use a DSLR camera to take photos, spending all of my free time planning, writing and researching. There’s been a few bumps in the road, a few twists and turns, but this blog is my everything. Every day I look forward to bringing my readers something new and exciting to inspire them. I love every minute of writing here.
This blog is basically a chronicle of my life- it covers mainly my fashion adventures but occasionally I’ll throw in recipe attempts, some DIY messes, and share personal stuff in a maybe hilarious, definitely meaningful way.
But what I really hope accomplish with this blog is to inspire my readers to be their best selves every single day. To motivate you to try new things, think outside the box, know that style is style (no matter where it’s from or how much it costs!), live healthier, and be happier! Life is an incredible gift, and I want to spend it living it to its happiest and fullest extent and I want you right there with me. So while this may seem like just another fashion blog I want you to know that there is so much more meaning behind it than that.
So hopefully you love my blog as much as I love writing it. I’m seriously with you, learning new things, making mistakes, and loving every minute of this fun adventure called life!
Be sure to follow along with me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. People say I’m social media obsessed (I did also make a career out of it!), but I just think of it as a beautiful relationship. If you want to get in touch just send me an email, I’d love to hear from you!
I will mention that while blogging is my absolute passion, it is incredibly time consuming, costly and lots of hard work. Balancing this blog with owning my own social media management business can be incredibly difficult. To help alleviate the work I am apart of several affiliate programs. What does that mean exactly? It means that I help support this blog with sponsored content and affiliate links. I will always disclose when I’m being paid for a blog post by saying sponsored within the post, and gifted items will always be marked with ℅ (courtesy of). Affiliate links means that if you click and/or purchase an item through my blog or any of my other social platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) I may make a commission from that click and/or purchase. I only wear and work with brands that I truly love and would recommend to my best friends so I am extremely selective about what goes here on the blog.
I always want to be as transparent as I possibly can and never want you, my reader, to ever feel taken advantage of. Working with these brands and affiliate companies allows me to keep working on this blog and I appreciate any and all support!!
Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet! Let’s talk again soon!
