Hi Five Foot Seven readers! I’m super excited to be posting here today and feel extremely honored that Jenna would ask! I’m Lauren, the momma behind L & The Wild Ones. A blog mostly about life; my love for fashion, coffee, food, and of course my family.
So, about me, I’m a full time wife and mother and a part time RN. I love DIY projects and repurposing the old and unwanted. On a regular day here in our house you’ll find a lot of noise, mostly laughter, the smell of coffee and vanilla candles, and music turned up really loud. I usually go for Kings of Leon, but lately I’ve had Bridges by Broods on repeat.
A little more about what you’ll most likely find on my blog:
1. This year I decided to challenge myself to not buy anything (except necessary items like underthings, socks, pantyhose…) for a year. You’re probably thinking that that is a little insane, and for some people it might be, but for me shopping can be a way to fill a void of some sort, and I’m really trying to focus on having less and using what I already have more! 2. Outfit posts, which kind of ties in with my yearlong wardrobe challenge. I’m trying to wear what I have and I also figure out what I can get rid of and donate. 3.Food. You’ll find a lot of food. Particularly baked goods. I love pies, breads, cookies, cakes… you name it. I’ve got a bad sweet tooth, but I do try to make these tasty treats with a healthy twist, like substituting all-purpose flour with wheat flour.
4. And last, but not least, I post about life in general. My husband and kids. My faith, struggles, goals, and adventures.
I hope you'll come check out my space and stick around for a while!
