MY NAME IS LAUREN, AND I AM A NEW YORK TRANSPLANT LIVING IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA. I AM A CERTIFIED HOLISTIC HEALTH AND WELLNESS COACH WITH A PASSION FOR FITNESS, FASHION, FOOD, AND TRAVEL.
This blog was originally created in the summer of 2014 as a means to share my favorite healthy recipes, cultivate my own personal style, review my favorite beauty products and document my travels. I wholeheartedly believe in living a balanced lifestyle; I love fitness and healthy food, but I also enjoy craft beer and great wine! After several years in the marketing industry, I recently launched my own social media marketing business.
When I’m not making a complete disaster of my kitchen, you can find me trying out ridiculous new workouts (high intensity junkie 4 life), smothering my dog with kisses, hanging out with my best friends, or soaking in anything health-related (oh yeah…and shopping!).
I eat healthy 90% of the time. I am lucky because I truly love my fruits and veggies, and eating clean/wholesome food is second nature to me. However, I do love the occasional slice of pizza and have no problem indulging in a glass of wine or delicious craft beer. While I mostly discuss healthy eating here on Greens & Glamour, sometimes I enjoy talking about the not-so-healthy stuff, too! It’s all about balance!
I LOVE clothes, and shopping is definitely a favorite activity of mine. I enjoy mixing high end pieces with more affordable ones. I tend to keep about 3 or 4 great pairs of jeans in my closet (Paige is a favorite of mine — love their stretchiness!), a few classic designer bags, and a couple of timeless pumps. These pieces are staples in my closet and I use them on a weekly basis. Outside of that, I try and buy trendier pieces from retailers like H&M, Nasty Gal, or Urban Outfitters.
Beauty & Product Philosophy
I am a big supporter of nontoxic, natural beauty alternatives. Most of what I put on my face or clean my home with are chemical free. However, I usually use an 80/20 approach here. As with everything else, I try and maintain a healthy balance!
