Life as Lauren Mikael: Happy Birthday!

Today Life as Lauren Mikael turns one year old! Times flies, it honestly doesn’t feel like it has been that long to me. I think it has been a pretty great year honestly. I know a lot (okay, most) people think 2020 has been a crap year. It’s all about perspective, if you are focusing […]

Fall Favorites: Candles, Teas, and Recipes

In my opinion the best time of year is most definitely Fall. The crisp weather, the cozy sweaters; the food…sign me up for all of it! If it were up to me we would all live in a constant Autumn season. Now that the time is finally here, I figured it would be a good […]

Setting Intentions is Important

I don’t want to have to look for clues to find out whether or not we are going to be in a relationship…this isn’t freakin’ Blue’s Clues. I don’t have time for that anymore. Which is why setting intentions is so important. When I first met Jonathon, he told me basically right off the bat […]

Okay, Universe, I won’t Write about Mindy Kaling

Today I had planned to do the Tuesday Starts with Tea post about the book Why Not Me? By Mindy Kaling. (You can get it here: https://amzn.to/303pNxg) I had it all written and planned out; even took real photos with my DSLR camera and everything. For some reason I guess life doesn’t want me to […]

Facebook: Time to Say Goodbye

Yesterday I decided to quit using Facebook (except for blogging purposes.) I’m still keeping my Business pages. (Speaking of, have you “Liked” Life as Lauren Mikael on Facebook yet?) Having a personal Facebook is just too much of a distraction for me, I’ve wasted so much of my time over the years mindlessly scrolling through […]

(Plenty of Fish) POF Conversations: Drayeds31

I’ve been quiet for a while, had to take some time away from the blog and social media to focus on self care; while I was away I started learning about meditation and shadow work, we’ll talk more about both of those soon. Today I have another Plenty of Fish post for you. Earlier today […]

Dress By Us: Incase You Need Cute New Dresses

If you know me, I’m sure you know the majority of my closet is filled with band T-shirts that I picked up at the show while seeing that particular artist. I’ve always really liked dresses though, and had been thinking for a while that I needed to get more dresses soon. A few weeks ago […]

Don’t You Worry- Queen Latifah

I know it isn’t Friday, but today we are going to talk about music anyway. “Don’t You Worry” from the TV show Star. You guys know I am a big believer in positive thinking Life has been throwing a lot of stuff at me lately. Between some things not happening as fast as I thought […]
