More about me

Lucky Things shares stories and top tips on juggling your career, confidence, wellbeing, life and style.

With over 15 years corporate experience in HR, people development and coaching, I’ve helped others to learn more about leading their careers and growing their confidence. Every part of my career kaleidoscope has led to the next; building amazing networks and taking up opportunities to work with talented people. My career has spanned across working in magazines, fashion, the music industry, DJing and corporate city life. I now run my own HR consultancy Collective Insight.

I’m a connector. I connect people with others and also with things or brands they might enjoy. In 2016, I set up the social and networking events the Lucky Things Meet Ups where women could also take something away for their own personal development. More sell-out events are taking place in London, Bristol, Manchester and Brighton this year. Check out #LuckyThingsMeetUp on Instagram to see the feedback so far. You can also hear me talking about Lucky Things over on BBC Radio/BBC News here.

IMG_1633Life isn’t always straightforward. We made it through a long and unpredictable journey ending up with two IVF daughters. Blogging is also a platform to increase awareness and support for the IVF journey and our general wellbeing. I was featured as the Mumsnet Blog of the Day for Will we tell our children they are IVF babies?

A little more about the H-crew… Me and my husband Mr H live in London and we love showing it off to our crew; four-year old ‘Big Munch’ and two-year old ‘Toddler Munch’. Big Munch loves being creative and hanging out with her little friends. Toddler Munch loves exploring new spaces and making a mess! As a family, we love being creative, out and about in London, weekends away in the UK and lounge discos.

In March 2017, I was interviewed about blogging and my Instagram adventures on BBC Radio/BBC News. Check out the radio show and videos here.

    I really enjoy following Lucky Things.
    As a new mum back at work, there are so many relevant, interesting blogs which I find very useful, informative and reassuring!
    I love the fashion blogs too, especially the tips.
    Your style is very relaxing to read but informative, open and refreshing at the same time. The way you have shared your personal stories is admirable.
    Please keep it up as it makes my train journey to and from work so much more enjoyable! X

    I like to read Lucky Things at the 3am feed – it’s so refreshingly ‘normal’ and that’s meant as a compliment! A lot of parenting blogs and mummy info out there is cheesy or patronising, but I find Sunita incredibly honest, natural and easy to read with familiar experiences to me. Love the touch of glam that it brings to my middle of the night duties too! 😀

      Hey Kimberly, thanks so much for leaving your honest comment (especially when I know you must be so busy and you have a little one to feed and cuddle!). So glad Lucky Things offers some happy reading as well as a bit of fun style in the middle of the night. Wishing you lots of lucky things x

    Hi Sunita, Thankyou for commenting on my post and therefore introducing me to your blog! It’s fab and very inspiring. I look forward to reading your posts! I will admit right now that I am not the best blogger, still very fledgling and sometimes I don’t spend as much time as I should writing posts or reading posts but life’s so busy with a small person and everything else! I guess I haven’t figured out how to do it all yet 😂
    All the best, Laura at BBTG -X-

      Hey Laura – well all I can say is what is a good blogger?? Is there such a thing. The great thing about blogging is that we set the rules (they’re our blogs). Ah lovely to hear what you think of Lucky Things – thanks for that.
      If you’re around the London area you should check out the Lucky Things Meet Ups. A really nice crowd is coming along in January. Nice to have met you over at the #coolmumclub Keep in touch! xx Sunita

    Hey Sunita,

    I came across your blog I think in a magazine recently….might be Grazia actually. Anyway, the topics look really interesting, so looking forward to exploring the articles here. The ivf journey bit definitely resonates with me, we’ve just tried our 3rd attempt this year and planning to do another later in the year but it’s hard on a number of levels so really grateful for you raising awareness around the subject.

    Thanks again

    Jen

      Hi Jen thanks so much for stopping by Lucky Things. It’s great that you’ve come across my blog. I really hope you enjoy the different themes. I’m going to be featuring others’ IVF journeys on Lucky Things from next week. So I hope they are insightful and possibly helpful whilst you go through your own journey. I guess I want to raise awareness of IVF and the support available as much as I can. Do drop me a line at sunita@luckythings.co.uk as it would be nice to keep in touch. Thanks again. Sunita
