As you’ve probably seen I haven’t really being “creating content” as such this summer. I’ve been enjoying my time in the sunshine. I’ve been on holidays, trodden through muddy fields at festivals, got stuck into my full time job, learning the ropes of it and improving on my photography skills along the way. It’s been a whirl wind. I moved in with the girls just over a month ago now and finally feel at home, settled into our crib. I’m really in a good place. It’s taken a while for me to feel the way I feel to be honest. I’ve had some rookie past times, like we all do, we learn from things and take the best from a bad situation.
I have taken the summer to really think about what I want to give to you guys as my audience. I love you all so much and I really am grateful to everyone of you for clicking the follow button this year and hope to see my little corner of the internet grow into a beautiful little flower 🙊
I have literally thought about everything, likes, dislikes, what’s trending, what’s just utter bullocks on the net right now. Nothing was sticking. I tried the whole bright and colourful blogger thing, the non theme and the I cba layout, fashion, lifestyle you name it I’ve been thinking about it this summer.
But then it struck upon me that actually I want something that appeals to me and to me mostly. That’s what Instagram and these social platforms are about right? Creating a platform to show case YOU. And then I started to really think. I thought about MY likes and dislikes, what appeals to ME and what I think is bullocks on the net right now.
I want you guys to see a bit of me. So here’s a bit about me to give you an idea on how I have come about my new theme and style of, well, me.
Let’s start with the fact I am fucking lazy. If I had it my way, I wouldn’t be working. I’d have a 40%/60% ratio of bed time and just doing what ever the hell I want time. Obviously the higher figure will be spent in bed.
I’m arty. Yeh, I love art. Old art, historical art. Art that tells a story and has emotional attachment to it. Not Mona Lisa type shit. Let’s be honest here, it’s rather small and sat in a museum in France. If you’re lucky enough you might even get into the room next to it to simply watch people’s dull expressions. I’m talking about the art you don’t see plastered all over billboards. Art from da soul. You get it. I like soulful art.
I love me time. Me time comes with great opportunities to write endless lists, I love reading poetry by Rupi Kapour (yes I am basic but please proceed) I hate baths but on the odd occasion it comes in handy for me time.
My friends are my family. I love them to bits and the fact I get to live with two of them has made me feel more at home than I have ever done before.
Coffee dates with old friends and cake in unknown cafes. It’s a thing I think most people like to do. Catching up with an old friend you haven’t seen in a long time like you only saw them yesterday. One of comforts best attributes.
I’m wild and a bit nocturnal.
“Lauren why are you so tired?”
“Oh I was up until 2am.”
“I fancied a plain bagel as a midnight snack”.
I’m rarely asleep but like I have a relationship with my bed. Fact. If you catch me on a blue moon the term Wild is probably loosely used to depict a night out with Sheps. It’s not an often occurrence but I don’t like to take like too seriously. Motto: You only live once and my personal favourite. You can get money back but never your time. Live up your 20’s like it’s your last frolicking day.
I am fucking weird. I have a weird sense of humour. I can’t comment much here. Ask my friends.
I’m a bit moody if I don’t get my own way. HA. Definition of a pre Madonna in the making maybe? Nah I’m not a diva at all but I don’t like when something doesn’t go my way.
Comfort and cuddles win all.
I like wine.
My wardrobe has had a total transformation into a 90’s Victoria Beckham or Jennifer Anniston fashion line. Watch out for neutral tones galore and a dash of editorial.
So I hope that gives you a bit of an insight into the mind of Lauren and I do apologise for the atrocious foul language in this blog post. I just felt it made it a bit more dramatic seeing as my vocabulary isn’t exactly inspiring.
So here it is…. Welcome to me and welcome to my new space on the Internet ⭐️🌙✌🏽
