Hello there! My name is Amanda Lauren and welcome to my blog. I’m a writer, among other things, who lives in Los Angeles with my husband and our two dogs, Lulu and Milo. You might have come here after reading my articles on other sites such as Mashable, LA Weekly, The Kitchn, She Knows, After Party Magazine, Ravishly, Your Tango, The Gloss, Cheat Sheet, Huff Po, No Tofu, Psychology Today or Salon or a whole bunch of others. I've written about so many topics I call myself a “Jackie of All Trades. Marilyn of None™.” It's Amanda Lauren is my home to write freely about all the things I love, whether it’s style, beauty or my obsession with décor.
