I thought it would be fun to do a little introduction post. These are my favorite posts to read on blogs because I love seeing what I have in common with bloggers I follow.
First things, first. I’m Lauren, I’m 29 (30 in 2 months!), and I live in Raleigh, NC with my husband and miniature pinscher. Here are 5 things you might not know about me.
1. I’m a pescetarian.
In my junior year of college I read Skinny Bitch. It took a few months to fully transition to a vegetarian. I ended up adding fish back to my diet, but I don’t think I’ll ever add meat back. It just doesn’t appeal to me anymore.
I also love to cook and try out new recipes. So if you’re ever in need of a good vegetarian/pescetarian recipe, I’m your girl.
2. The Bachelor is my favorite guilty pleasure show.
I don’t watch any other reality shows, but I get excited to tune into The Bachelor every Monday night.
3. I drink my coffee black.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy sugary specialty lattes when I treat myself to Starbucks (you can find me drinking peppermint white mochas all winter long). But if I’m drinking a regular cup of coffee, I prefer black over adding cream and sugar.
4. I’m a bargain shopper.
Seriously, I can count the number of things in my closet that I paid more than $50 for on one hand. And I buy a lot of my household staples on Amazon because I can get a better deal, especially using subscribe and save.
I love a good sale, and I’m always willing to wait for a price drop or turn to Poshmark or eBay to get a better deal.
5. I have a thing for pretty notebooks and stationery.
I’ve tried to tone this down over the years, but I still have a pretty solid collection of empty notebooks. Like to the point where my husband is always on my case about why I need so many. I just do, OK?
