I’m a California native living near Portland, OR with my fiancé, Matt, and our pup, Georgia.
You might have found me on Instagram where my wellness-obsessed alter ego, Lauren Lives Healthy, started. Or perhaps we’ve met through my work as a tech (now science) marketer. Maybe you came across this page through Google or Pinterest or somewhere else. Either way, thank you for stopping by.
Quick background: in 2013, I was going through a break-up and decided, literally overnight, to change my habits. I started prioritizing healthy living, which spiraled into taking care of myself in other ways: learning to love cooking, wanting to save more, saying goodbye to friendships that were weighing me down and putting effort into relationships that build me up. I’ve since gained the weight back and am on my health 2.0 journey.
Going against everything I know as a social media manager, this site doesn’t have a theme or a tone or a timeline; it’s merely a place for me to share the things that I love. I hope you’ll stay a while and click away feeling empowered to create your own journey. Thanks for stopping by!
While I’ve dabbled with it in the past, this space isn’t about sponsored content or overwhelming amounts of affiliate links. My goal is simply to share the things that inspire me, in hopes that you’ll embrace the things YOU love. That said, if I mention a product that I actually recommend, I may embed an affiliate link which will give me a small commission — at no cost to you. Shopping through affiliate links is an easy way to support people and brands you love.
