Hey, girl hey!

I am Melanie Hernquist, creator of the Lucky + Lovely blog! I am so glad you stopped by. I’m obsessed with helping overscheduled, driven and educated women merge their passion for the business of beauty with a mission based, education centered platform.

I am a mama of two kiddos and during my second pregnancy, I was introduced to a beauty brand that is counterrevolutionary to the industry. As I started to educate myself on the products and ingredients we are using in our personal care products, I became angry at the amount of information that I learned regarding our chemical exposure and the link to health issues. Before I knew it, this new passion of mine actually started to become a profitable business. Sharing this information has become my mission and I am committed to the mission of sharing it with my community.  

This blog is your home for pep talks, business building tips and inspiration. You deserve to work your side-hustle in style. We are going to do this together and have a lot of fun in the process. Feeling inspired? 

Have a question or need advice?

Shoot me an email at or tag me on instagram.

    I wanted to know if you designed logo’s, if so what would the investment be.

    What would be the investment of a website design

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Melanie, I saw your work on Blush Event Company and all I can say is that we need your help. Our brand has been going through a refresh/overhaul and our website is in desperate need of some TLC.
    Please let me know if we can set up time to discuss. I’ll look forward to hearing back from you.

    Thanks so much for this! Is it possible for you to share an old planning sheet that is filled out? I have a hard time thinking of so many different things to post across feeds.
