Getting inspired can be difficult.

I realized this weekend how funny I am when it comes to becoming truly inspired.

Here’s the deal: I get really, really uninspired sometimes.

To the point where I’m unpleasant to be around. Sometimes it’s a ‘oh shit, stay away from Lauryn…’ sort of deal.

Michael just knows to stay away—- I kinda go into a funk.

On the other hand…when I’m inspired…look out! I’m a full blown wizard with levers & knobs conducting mad science shit in a laboratory playing with my mustache & wickedly laughing…by myself.

Mr. Wizard only comes out every so often though ( boo. ).

This Saturday he showed himself in FULL effect. Like, I was like: get out of my space, I’m getting creative & inspired, so MOVE bitch-kinda effect.

I can’t explain it really…but it sort of goes like this: I hole up in my house with a camera, food ( for eating but mainly for blogging ), a computer, music, candles, & a to-do list…& start plotting/planning. I don’t work out, don’t pick up my phone, & cut off the outside world. Picture me on the floor— not even sitting at a desk…just getting weird & real creative.

I only get like this every so often. & it’s almost an insanity. But it’s how I work.

Ultimately, my evil, little inner wizard is the foundation of TSC.

So. This weekend was gnarly. I literally didn’t leave my house.

Point: creativity is fleeting. Take it where you can. It’s hard to get fully inspired ( right?! ) but when you feel creative: TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE. Unlease your inner wizard & create magic. Do you.

How do you get inspired? How do you keep the inspiration going? Tips please! x//lauryn

It’s cominnnnggggg.

Super excited for The Skinny Confidential: A Babe’s Sexy, Sassy Health and Lifestyle Guide. The book is avail March 4th ( eekk! ) & can be pre-ordered here.

Honestly writing a book felt like giving birth to a baby ( not literally, but you know what I mean ). It was all kinds of emotions. I really wanted to make sure that TSC book wasn’t a carbon copy of my blog— so I made sure to spill alllll my beauty/health/fitness tips that haven’t been on the site yet.

So on that note, it’s time to party (!!!) AKA let loose.

I’m throwing Croquet & Cocktails: The Skinny Confidential Book Launch Party at the oh-so-gorgeous Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa in Rancho Santa Fe, California on their amazing Croquet Lawn ( because, duh. Who doesn’t like croquet & cocktails?! )…oh, & everyone’s invited!

So come say hi, k?

Enjoy a skinny street taco bar, craft cocktails ( w/ freshest of fresh ingreds, naturally ), live music by Ottopilot, goodie bags, roaming makeup artists from Cate McNabb, & a Suja DIY mimosa bar with Bon Affair champagne.

Lotsa good vibes, music, & tons of TSC books!!

I’m so, so excited; check it out:

More deets:

My cousin’s band, Ottopilot will be playing live tunes ( << they’re both SO amazing live— WTF happened to my vocal skills? I’ve always wanted to be good at belting out The Little Mermaid theme song. My cousin’s clearly inherited all the vocal talent ). Anyway Ottopilot’s vibe is mellow but sexy; think: John Mayer-style/acoustic-rock. If you’re interested in hearing their music, the band just launched a Kickstarter which can be found here.

Also, a big thank you to Ali Grant & her insane team at Be Social PR in Solana Beach, CA. She literally helped make this event possible!! Best PR agent ever. They’re a savvy lifestyle PR firm for all the industries I love, love, love. Think: beauty, restaurants, wellness, fitness &/or foodie clients. Check her out on Instagram here. 

Oh, & if you’re unfamiliar with Rancho Valencia…you HAVE to try it out ASAP. It’s by far my favorite resort in California…it’s serious amazeballs ( their spa is to die x 20 ). The party will begin on The Croquet Lawn & then the after party ( oh ya, there’s an after party…! ) will be in The Pony Room with all the top bloggers from SD ( Blawnde, Burlap & Crystal, Evillarts, Fashionlush, The Fashion Bite ).

Hope to see all you babesy-babes there…& thank, thank, thank for all the sweet support, guys!

Love you all long time.
