The Lifestyle Edit, Vol. 1

 In Lifestyle, Tips + Thoughts

Hi loves! If you’ve been reading along with me for a while then you might have noticed a little change over here on my site. I’ll call it the soft launch, because I’m still finalizing my graphics, but you can find me as Lifestyles by Lauren on social media now!

After blogging for almost TWO years (crazy, right), it was time to change it up a bit. Over the years I’ve switched hosting sites, starting with WordPress.com, then Blogger, and now to WordPress.org, I’ve also changed logos, and I’ve definitely evolved as a person and as a brand. My Life as Lauren started out as a website to document things happening in my life that I hoped would inspire others. But, it’s grown into so so much more than that!

Recently, I’ve concentrated a lot on collaboration over competition, and supporting other girl bosses and bloggers in the industry. The name, My Life as Lauren, seemed a bit too self-focused, and changing my brand to Lifestyles by Lauren seemed perfect to encompass the various lifestyle topics that I’ll write about and feature on here!

 

What changes can you expect??

 

First, I’m planning to include more interviews of girl bosses and influencers to inspire you (if you want to be featured HMU), and also adding in new sections and features. That brings me to this post, The Lifestyle Edit.

The Lifestyle Edit will be your weekly one-stop-shop for top industry news/pop culture updates/events that are happening. Each week I’ll pick 5-10 things that you should know, share it here, and also send it out to my email list. (Def subscribe to stay up to date).

 

 

The Lifestyle Edit, Vol. 1 – January 11th

1.Time’s Up #whywewearblack at The Golden Globes-Β Sunday, celebrities made a powerful statement at the Golden Globes by wearing black and supporting the new Time’s Up initiative.
