Welcome to The Perfect Blend, I’m Lauren! I’m Houston born and raised, an Aggie, and a twenty-something year old just trying to find my place in “the real world”.
For a long time now, I’ve dreamed of creating a blog. (If you know me, you know my obsession with the blog world) So…I FINALLY created The Perfect Blend to document the things I love, and share bits and pieces of my life. During this new chapter of my life, I am aiming to inspire others through my personal stories, daily fashion, love for cooking and home styling tips. Although there are many goals I have for this blog, the most important one is that I want to help encourage you, my readers, to be the best version of yourselves. Cooking meals you never thought you could make, feeling confident and beautiful, and most importantly, remembering that you can’t love others, until you love yourself. My hope is that when you read my blog, you feel like you’re my best friend and we are just talking about life together. I hope that my words inspire and encourage you to try new things and not be afraid of being your truest self.
Something you should know about me, is that my faith is everything. Without it, I would have nothing, and I would not be who I am today. The Lord shows me everyday how important life is and that his plan for me goes beyond anything I could ever dream up. My life is the furthest thing from perfect, and I could not be more thankful for my experiences, the bad included. They have all shaped me into who I am today.
Just a few months ago, I started a “grown up” job, and am in a time of transitioning from college life to adult life. Let me tell you.. working full time is no joke people. I have been doing it a while now and am still not quite used to having to do my make up every day! (College sure does spoil us) This new chapter of my life has taught me so much already. It has taught me that things aren’t always going to go the way that you imagine them, and that positivity is the key to all aspects of success. Are you in a transition period right now? Going through a stressful time and can’t figure out how to find happiness in the storm? Well, I spend a lot of my time thinking about what I can do differently in my life so that I can feel joyful even in the midst of stress. Thinking positively and looking at every situation as a glass that is half full are two things that I practice every day. My piece of advice for today is to keep your eyes focused on positivity and joy. No matter what storms you go through in your life, remember that God will never let you drown in the crashing waters. Even when you can’t see Him, he is there acting as a life vest and keeping you a float. His plan for each of our lives is perfect and sometimes it just takes a little bit of encouragement to let yourself see that.
My heart is exploding with joy over this new adventure, and I truly hope you love following along!
