Hello and welcome to the all new Lauren Loves! I am SO excited to show you around!
Let me first start off by saying something. When I started this blog coming up on 8 year ago, I never, ever imagined that it would turn into what it has become. It’s an integral part of my daily life – from social media to brainstorming ideas to creating content and everything in-between. I so enjoy having this space to share all the things that I love – personal style, beauty finds, podcasts I’m listening to, what I’m shopping and more! My goal with this space is to inspire and help you, my readers. Always.
It’s been a long time coming, but I finally have the layout, features and design of a site that I’m proud of and will help me to do what I want to do, which is help you! Here’s a breakdown of what you can find and where:
Site Categories: I categorize every post on my blog, so that you can find what you’re looking for more easily. The most popular categories are fashion, beauty and lifestyle, with sub-categories in each. You can now browse through my outfits, travel-related posts, and posts specifically about nail polish, for example.
Shop Feature: Under the Shop tab, you will find links to all kinds of things. You can shop my Instagram Feed, see what I have in my Amazon Shop, shop my picks from current sales, and check out my The Shop Page. The Shop Page has all the items you see around here and on Instagram – beauty favorites, items in our home, things you see on Stories, and the retailers I shop at most often.
Just below the newest blog post (which is the first you see on the site) is a collection of “things I’m loving lately”, which will be updated regularly.
One aspect of the site that I wanted to be sure was everywhere you needed it to be is the search function. You can see that it is available all over – at the top of the site, in the sidebar, and in the footer (bottom of the page). If you’re looking for something specific, you can just type in a word or two into that bar and find it!
Last but certainly not least, you can see that there’s a spot in the sidebar to sign up for my monthly newsletter! I’m so excited to start this up again this year. At the end of each month, I’ll be sending out an email to my subscribers as a sort of recap of the month. It will be a variety of topics and information – the most popular item(s) of the month, what I’m reading, a new recipe I’ve tried, what we’ve got on deck for the next month and more. It is my goal that the content of these emails be 100% new, so it’s things that you won’t find elsewhere. And don’t worry, I won’t be clogging up your inbox – it’s just one email a month! If you’re interested, you can input your email in the box to the right.
I encourage you to take a look around, click around and explore the site a bit! This site was created with you heavily in mind, so I want you to be able to utilize it to its full capability!
