Hi there! I’m Laura.
Pleasure to meet you, virtually.
Let’s dig in, shall we?
Welcome to my website. First thing you need to know about me: I’m a writer – copy, digital, marketing, comms, policy, the whole nine yards.
Second (more important) thing you need to know about me: I wake up every morning and aspire to do great things. I’m sure many of you do as well. But I just want to lay that out there. As part of my DNA, I really do reach for the stars every moment of every day, and I don’t settle for much less. Which sounds arrogant, even bratty, but get to the end and you’ll understand.
Aspiration and inspiration is like oxygen to me. There’s no such thing as an average life. I want to dream bigger, run faster, laugh harder…I want to “own every second that this world can give.”
And I want to share it with you.
My SO WHAT? WHO CARES?
So what? This is a repository of the things I love: travel, beauty, skincare, fashion, and more. But you must love these things also, or else you wouldn’t be here, right? However, unlike most typical fashion and lifestyle blogs, this is a conversation starter. I will be talking about the tough stuff, too. I’ve been blessed with lots of life experience at a young age. Love. Loss. Joy. Grief. Oh, and I suffer from bipolar disorder.
Who cares? My mental health ‘disability’ has been at times a wonderful, humbling gift, and at other times, a burdensome curse. I’ll explain more as we go on this journey together, but just know, living a great life in spite of my mental health illness has made my life something most definitely worth living, and sharing. If you stick with me, I promise to dig in and talk about all the things that comprise an incredibly playful, beautiful and complex life, and yes, that includes the messy bits.
