She hopes you will leave By Lauren M feeling empowered to own your personal style and will come back daily to be inspired to try something new, whether that be a new outfit combination or lipstick shade.

About Lauren

Lauren currently resides in Richmond, Virginia with her husband of 4 years, Aaron, their 2-year-old daughter, Layla, and their two dogs, Bella and Tug. Although as a young child Lauren swore she was going to be a cowgirl when she grew up, she found herself studying Economics and Hispanic Studies at Vanderbilt University and later at the College of William and Mary. She began her career in Finance and began blogging as a creative outlet. Now running this site has become her full-time job. Lauren has contributed to popular websites such as Weddingbee.com and Extraordinarymommy.com. She has also partnered with major brands such as Target, COVERGIRL, Kohl’s, Reebok, and Banana Republic.

Although she was often the go-to girl among her friends for style and beauty tips, she never imagined that style blogging would become such a huge part of her life. Now sharing her style and life with you is one of the best parts of her day.
