Introducing a New Resource

November 29, 2016

Hey there, sweet friend!

If you're new here, I'm Lauren, owner of this little corner of the internet.  I am a creative to the core who is constantly inspired by good light, sweet love stories, pretty little details, exploring new places, and creative projects.  Here you'll find a little exploration of each!

looking for something?

It was a Sunday, and for me, usually things go well on Sundays – its my day of rest, time with friends, my favorite football team, family, good food, etc.  But on this particular Sunday I found myself traveling and feeling a lot more like I had a serious case of the Mondays.  In fact, in a completely un-related note, but to set the tone of the day for ya, my early morning wake-up call may or may not have resulted
 in me leaving my computer at security… bless you, kind, but very sarcastic security lady who called and insisted that I must be missing something even when I adamantly assured her I was not.  5 am wake-up calls are not for this girl who stayed up until 1am packing the night before –

I mean, face palm, y’all.

 


 

The day continued without a hitch. I worked on the plane ride there so that I would have to do as little computer work as possible, and I could instead spend my time catching up with old friends and meeting some sweet new ones.  Sunday afternoon – check and check, and then it happened…

We were getting ready for the opening cocktail hour of the event and like any normal human (I later learned that this straight-from-the-heavens-gift was not only reserved for women – but men too) who didn’t have quite enough time to shower, I spritzed my hair with a little dry shampoo to put the finishing touches on my otherwise flat hair before I was about to meet and greet with 250+ people.

Much to my dismay, I found that the more I sprayed, a touch of grease seemed to appear.  Again I might add, that as any normal human being would do, I proceeded to spray more of the dry shampoo because, duh – that’s the whole point of it.  Well, I did this until it was so bad, that my friend Natalie tried to comfort me by letting me know that if I pulled my hair back into a pony tail, no one would know, and they would just think I was and. I. quote. “going for that slicked back, J.Crew kind-of-look.”  WHAT A RELIEF… not.

With little time left, I proceeded to the cocktail party in my ponytail, trying not to draw too much attention to myself.  Much to my actual relief, it was pretty dark, and everyone there was kind enough to not notice – or at least not point it out to me.  As soon as the cocktail hour ended and dinner was eaten, I hurried back to our hotel room to grab a shower and wash that stuff out of my hair.  I didn’t proceed to check the bottle until the next day – and thankfully I didn’t because its a 50/50 shot that I still would have missed it if I had.

On that beautiful Dove bottled of formerly-named dry shampoo, I noticed that instead of “dry shampoo” it said “drying spray.”

. . . As in – DRYING YOUR ARMPITS KIND OF SPRAY THAT I HAD PUT IN MY HAIR.  

I blame Target for putting the Dove products in the same section – I mean who puts deodorant right next to the dry shampoo (insert dramatic eye-roll here).

All this to say, after a very long-winded story, that things are not always as they appear or are promised to be.

If we hang out on Instagram already, you saw the announcement late last night that I am starting up a newsletter that launches next Monday, December 5th! I’m so excited about creating a space for us to connect outside of social media and the blog, and to provide y’all with some fun resources, behind-the-scenes of the business, and lots of sneak peeks!  But the reason why I’m writing about it here, is because I don’t want to be just another email that clogs up your already filled-to-capacity inbox.  I want this newsletter to bring you joy, education, and community… and so from the beginning, that’s what I promise it will be!  A placed designed specifically for you to connect from the safety of your own inbox.

I promise not to be deodorant spray when what you really need is dry shampoo.

So what does that mean? None of that sale-pitch-crap that already comes to your inbox by plethora.  Instead, I simply want to invite you to join in on the journey, and hopefully bless you along the way.
