Hello there! My name is Amanda Lauren and welcome to my site. 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, She Knows, LA Weekly, After Party Magazine, Ravishly, Your Tango, The Gloss, Cheat Sheet, Huff Po, No Tofu, Psychology Today, 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"), but felt like it was time to find a home to share freely about all the things I love, whether it’s style, beauty or my obsession with décor. So here I am. If you want to get in touch or collaborate (I love to collaborate), please email me AmandaLauren212 [at] gmail dot com.

PS: I'm still learning how to smile in pictures.
