The Blogger Behind 'Beauty with Lauren'

It's quite weird how I've never actually done a post all about me and the 'person behind the blog'. So, I thought seeing as I'm trying to blog every day in October, this would be a perfect post to do! Here goes...

I live in a little village in the beautiful English Countryside with my parents and my 3 brothers. I have a golden retriever dog called 'Charlie', 2 chickens and my brothers bearded dragon 'Reggie'. 
The house we brought needed total renovation which we are in the middle of doing at the moment. We are LITERALLY living in a building site! Every morning, I wake up not to the sound of birds (which you'd expect where I live) but to the Jack-Hammer and Drill. 



My bedroom has been done for about a month now and I went for a Shabby Chic country style room with pale greys and off-whites. I also went for wicker baskets as storage and I'm looking to get a king-size, off-white painted brass bed frame. 

One of my favourite animals is cats! I owned 2 cats in the past but one died and the other was given to my cousin as it wanted to kill the chickens. I will definitely be getting a cat (or two) in the future even though my boyfriend, Jay, is slightly allergic.

Me and Jay also really enjoy baking and are constantly making cakes, cookies etc for our family. In my spare time, I blog (of course) but I also do graphic design work such as illustrations, creating logos/social media headers etc. 

Tell me a little bit about yourself in the comments!

    I am also a cat lover but because I'm just renting my place I am not allowed to have one :(. Looking forward to next post.

  13. I was only reading a thread earlier about whether to include an'about me' page on your blog.
    Giving your readers a bit of information about yourself and context for your blog posts helps readers feel they are engaging with a real person.

  14. As if you have a bearded dragon that's so cool! I'm a big fan of both writing and reading personal posts like this lately so you should definitely do more, it's nice to get some insight into who's writing the blog!
