Well hello.

SO I went to Vegas for a night this weekend. If you follow me on Snapchat ( I swear Snapchat is not like my sponsor, I just love it because it’s raw, real, & pretty much the shit ), then you know I had quite the excursion actually getting there.

I, eer, missed my flight.

Boy did I feel like an asshole because I’m constantly making fun of Michael’s INTENSE promptness. IN MY DEFENSE THOUGH, the TSA line was a mile long ( …I may or may not have arrived 30 minutes before my flight though ). In typical Lauryn fashion, I ended up taking the 6 PM flight instead of the originally scheduled 11 AM.

Michael was working in Vegas for a convention for a few days so I flew out for the night to meet him & our friends…AKA I just went out for a little fun.

But wait. Can we talk about Vegas style? Is it just me or is it very difficult to pick an outfit in Vegas— IS ANYONE WITH ME?

Let’s face it…it’s hard to look effortless in a tighter than tight bandage dress, like…clearly, you tried.

I hate when outfits look like I tried too hard. Especially when we’re eating full-on pasta & dessert before going out.

Highly annoying, no?

Anyway, I opted for something simpler, but also sexy: a superrrr low cut V jumpsuit. Some added touches: a very long, thin ‘boob’ necklace, stick straight hair, & extremely high pumps…because it’s Vegas, so shit, I had to add a little showgirl pizzazz to my outfit.

We ended up going to a club, which is not really my favorite thing on the planet. It’s nothing personal to anyone who likes clubs but I like to have conversations ( GRANDMA ) & you cannot hear a word with techno music blaring in your ears. I’m also not going to lie, I’m that person fully wearing tiny orange ear plugs ( carry them in your clutch, trust me ).

Maybe I’m getting too old for Las Vegas?

{ today, working off blueberry pancakes }

But a little gambling, vodka sodas with extra lemons, & the best pancakes in the world for breakfast are 100% worth the trip.

Really though, The Wynn’s pancakes ARE WORTH THE ENTIRE TRIP ACTUALLY, if we’re being honest. They’re these blueberry pancakes there that my girlfriend, Elena introduced me to at Tableau & they’re literally sex x a million. Nothing better. Especially when you’re recovering from a vodka soda/club music hangover.

What’s your Vegas experience been like? I know you guys allllll have Vegas stories. Come on, make me laugh. Ok, go ; ).

BOO! Happy Halloween!!!


Happy Halloween to the BEST readers in the world.

After reading through your comments on my swollen post, I am again reminded of the amazing, motivating Skinny Confidential community— you guys RALLY!

This Halloween is now extra special because of your uplifting advice & kind support.

Anyway, tonight should be fun because we are in Miami…Michael is currently dressed as himself: Panicky Susan ( lol ) with a perfectly crispy pocket square & I’m being a dark bunny ( see above ).

Stay tuned for tomorrow where I’ll be sharing a skeleton look.

Happy Halloween!!

{ turmeric lattes getting me through Mondays }

Hi guys, how are you? Happy MONDAY- I’m feeling very gloomy today. Almost grumpy because the weather here was just one of those days. Like not hot, but not cold, but not rainy, just BLAH. I also got hit with bills, way too many e-mails, & fifty nine million things to do at once today. Also, if we’re being honest I (accidentally??) ate way too many Flaming Hot Cheetos on the way home from LA & I swear I experienced a Cheetos hangover all day.

You know, typical Monday.

BUT THAT’S OK, my day hit a high note because of three things: 1.) I worked out today & sweat out the gloom. 2.) I’m housesitting five ( YES FIVE ) dogs with Michael so I’m simultaneously testing him to see how he’ll be as a parent #LUCKYHIM. & 3.) The Real Housewives of OC reunion is on right now. So there’s most definitely a silver lining. I really can’t wait to see how Andy is going to approach the whole Vicky/Brooks situation.

I always try to find positives in a blah-ish day.

{ me & M }

What else? Oh our friend was kind enough to invite us to The Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic this weekend & we sipped a lot ( like a lot, a lot ) champagne. I mean really the champagne was everywhere. Flowing out of the walls basically. After the polo match ( by the way the polo players were SPICY, like if you’re single Google ‘hot polo players’ & prepare die ) we went & met up with some friends for burrata, martinis, & pizza at SoHo House. That was fun but I was literally dead the next day, hence the Cheetos situation.

I realized I kind of can’t hang anymore. Is this just me? I’m very much a pussy when it comes to going all day & night. I’m yawning by 5 pm, craving a cup of Rooibos tea ready to spoon my chihuahuas & read a book. Plus I’m still sort of swollen, UGH. I love the weekends but there’s something I LOVE about the structure of weekdays. The routine of it all is, I don’t know, refreshing sort of? So for the next ten days I’m banning alcohol, white bread, pasta, French fries, basically anything extra delicious. Today’s been the first day of this, so wish me luck. I had steel cut oats, lots of celery with raw almond butter, green apples, almonds, chicken, & broccoli . THRILLING.

Chugging water & green tea basically every second too.

Hmmm…perhaps today was blah-ish because of the TONS of celery & broccoli? HA!

Ok, off to analyze Vicky & Meghan’s fight, lauryn x

Mini DeLites: MILAN, ITALY

{ a grainy picture of me & Michael at Roberto Cavalli x DISARONNO }

4:02 AM on Tuesday.

& surprise, surprise jet lag has me by the balls.

Went to bed at 5 PM last night, woke up at 2 AM today, you get the drift. And now we’ve been up watching MR. ROBOT ( << so gnarly, watch it ), eating Cheez-It’s & now I’ve decided to do a blog post. Because blogging at 4 AM is entirely normal.

Jet lag is so bizarre, I just feel straight up antsy!


Milan, Italy was stunning. Small charming streets, fruit-filled gelato on every corner, crazy shopping, & beautiful architecture.

It’s definitely a place everyone should experience, so if you’re thinking of planning a trip to Italy any time soon, definitely make a stop in Milan ( I’d recommend 3 days ). Side note: I’ll do a Paris/Milan itinerary x outfit recommendations, if you guys want?

{ Duomo Cathedral…so crazy beautiful, so dramatic }

On to more specifics of the trip— we stayed in Milan for one day until Michael decided ( very spontaneously, I should add ) that we travel to Lake Como for 2 days, which turned out to be really unbelievable. Lake Como is just probably the most magical place I’ve ever been. Stay tuned for more details next week but basically it’s this stunning lake with tiny restaurants & boutique hotels. The lake is surrounded by intense greenery, mountains, & Italian-style homes.

After Lake Como we went back to Milan because FINALLY I was feeling less swollen. The whole swollen thing really ruined the whole Fashion Week thing for us. Like I said, we booked this trip months & months ago, planning to attend NY & Milan Fashion Week but I simply felt out of sorts & too swollen to really do anything.

Ultimately, I’m not too bummed because instead we had a romantic vacation. So things worked out.

Towards the last 2 days of the trip, I finally started to feel a bit better so I ended the trip with a little work- we went to a dinner for Roberto Cavalli & DISARONNO and met up with other influencers. Still though, I feel like I’m wearing a mask. Feeling swollen 24/7 is weird.

Also, Michael & I went to Duomo Cathedral, did some shopping, ate, walked, ate, drank Campari sodas, ate, & explored. I also had a collagen facial that was INSANE. And collagen facials are my favorite thing…ever? Basically it pumps the skin in all the right places ( & it also helped with my swelling A LOT ). It’s crazy because you can see a huge difference after just one. Will be on the hunt for a collagen facialist in California after this trip.

Anyway, I have more to share but I feel like I should try to sleep for 2 more hours, ya?

This month’s theme is ORGANIZATION.

I am coming back from this trip completely re-inspired in blogging & in life. After my surgery I needed a minute to step outside. This trip did just the trick. I’m really feeling, I don’t know, re-motivated ( is that a word? )! I have a really clear vision of the next steps for my business, so October…it’s time to execute. It’s amazing how stepping away from things can bring so much perspective.

Ok! If you are toying around with the idea of going to Milan– let me know any questions below, happy to help!

Happy Monday ( or is it Tuesday? ), lauryn

Typical At-Home Date With Boone, Pixy, & Michael

As you know, the theme around my house lately has been date night IN…Definitely not date night out.

My recovery from my recent surgery was much more intense than I anticipated, so I’ve been doing what I can, AT HOME.

MAN, is it hard to be creative when 1.) your face feels like a balloon, 2.) you don’t really want to leave the house, 3.) you’re more tired than normal, which presents a problem when you want to make a nice night at home for your man.

Also if we are being honest? An at home date night is way more difficult to host when you live together. Can we talk about this for a minute though? When you live apart it’s easier to get everything set up & order take out & pretend that you spent a gazillion hours in the kitchen, sweating over a hot stove. When you live together…you can’t really fake it.

Thank God for Postmates because I literally ordered fresh chicken, soup, and veggies & secretly set it up as quickly as possible when Michael wasn’t looking.

For clothes on this particular night, I wanted to look pretty but comfortable. When I set up a date night at home, I never want to go too overboard. Too overboard would be like a skin tight mini dress with 5 inch heels and way too much makeup. I found this site called Golden Tote which is basically an online personal shopper. The site asks you some questions about your style & basically puts together a cute little bag o,f chic goodies. This white & blue get up was perfect for a date night in because it was comfortable AND super cute. I especially love the tie around the waist feature.

I kept my makeup simple & did a Sleep Bun to curl my hair ( braid was from night before )— fancy, smancy right.

Lastly, I set the tone with champagne scented candles, smooth Nova Lapa jazz, lemongrass essential oils, & grapefruit mocktails.

Mocktails have become a staple in our house on the weekdays. All you do is add a bottle of sparkling water over ice with 1/2 grapefruit’s juice, a few dashes of grapefruit bitters, a splash of pomegranate juice, & your favorite herb (I like basil lately).

Anyway, our latest at home date night ended with THE BEST MOVIE EVER: Along Came Polly.

Very much looking forward to my swelling going down so I can rock this outfit OUTSIDE!

Chat soon, lauryn x

+ Golden
Tote ( more options here too ) also sent me this hot number— another fabulous dress for women on the go who don’t have time to shop! I’m for sure rocking this on a future date night:
