About the Author
Hi! I'm Lauren!
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Salt Lake City, Utah. After graduating high school, I completed an apprenticeship to become a Nail Technician and discovered my skill for doing art on a tiny canvas a.k.a. being a Nail Artist! I have been doing that for the last 5 years and it has been a huge blessing in my life. I married my high school sweetheart (I know, so tender right?) in 2017 and we are living our best lives in Steamboat Springs, Colorado-a beautiful, small ski town in the middle of no where. There's only two problems with it: No Target or Chick-fil-a...it's fine... We moved here in the fall of 2019 so my husband could go to school to get his Ski and Snowboard Business degree. He'd love to open his own ski shop one day! He's the coolest person ever, and if you haven't met him already then I hope you get to. He's my biggest supporter and I couldn't be more grateful!! We also have a dog who keeps us active and from watching too much Netflix...and she gets way more cuddles from my husband than I do. Maybe I'm jealous, maybe I'm not.
In 2019, I graduated from the University of Utah with my Bachelor's in Social Work. I have such a love for that field and the work that is done there. And yes, there is a lot more to social work than counseling or working with children. It's an effort to enhance social functioning and overall well-being. Between working in the beauty industry and getting my degree, I discovered a passion for combating unhealthy norms around bodies and our experiences with them. Body confidence, self care, and finding commonalities within our insecurities is something that I love to share. I think the more we talk about these things the more we realize that it's OKAY to be the way that we are. To be ourselves. I created this blog to be a platform for these conversations, and to provide a safe place for people to come together and realize that we are all-around AWESOME. *double high five*
