Welcome to the new LaurenOLauren
Here we are again a fresh new beginning. Hello beautiful my name is Lauren and I’m from Jamaica a beautiful island in the Caribbean. After graduating from high school I went through a couple different pre-career changes. I was hell bent on becoming a nun after high school, then I started engineering school and two months later dropped out and enrolled in a pre-law program. A year later I followed a friend to a model casting call and the owner asked me to be a co-host on a television show that was based around fashion and lifestyle that aired once a week with two repeats. The rest as they say is history.
I worked in media for ten years, after starting out as a co-host at seventeen. Then I went on to producing my own tv show seven years later. I got some pretty cool opportunities and met some dope people along the way. I learned a lot and developed a real passion for creating and story telling.
In 2013 I married my husband and moved to the United States. Within a year I made the diplomatic decision to go back to school and get my degree in Public Relations. The two years I spent getting my degree, was faced with many challenges. I struggled with depression being away from friends, family and surviving the 2016 presidential elections as a black female immigrant in Kentucky. We moved to California in 2017 with our dog Henry and I’m just now feeling like I’m finally home.
I think this stage in my life is the beginning of something truly wonderful, and I needed a fresh new website that expressed all the amazing things happening. Not only do I have a growing Youtube community, but I started my Podcast – These Are The Rules in December 2018 and just released the 6th episode on April 11th. Im in a good place and I wanted my website to be the hub, because this is where it all started. I was blogging way before Instagram, before we had influencers. So I knew I had to go back to where It all started and make it better.
Welcome to my website, I post about fashion, lifestyle, and the daily musings of what its like to be me. Don’t forget to check out my new baby, These Are The Rules a podcast hosted by me. Peace love and light
