I'm a small town Minnesota media entrepreneur, photographer, and lifestyle blogger with a passion for chasing dreams. 

Today, I'm rediscovering that creative spark. I'm creating a beautiful life through thoughtful words, curated playlists, creative photography, and more. I'm releasing the pressure to create for others and focusing on what aligns with me.

You can probably find me hanging around neighborhood coffee shops, searching for local boutiques and bookstores, or dreaming of my next travel adventure. 

Hello, I'm Lauren!


I started my first blog in 2015, where I learned the ins-and-outs of social media, marketing, and all about those pesky algorithms. At that time, I was a still a full-time college student barely making ends meet. 

At the age of 21, I started my first media business - Morning Cup of Media. I took everything I knew from my experience and college education to help small entrepreneurs in their journey to fulfill whatever success means to them. And somewhere along the way, I lost my creative spark. 

now, you can find me....
