Hi friend, I’m Lauren!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I first began this blog after my freshman year at university. In those days, I saw it as a place to share my love for fashion and DIY project but eventually realized I was interested in more than just showcasing outfits and styling sneakers…I just wasn’t sure what that “other” stuff was. I left blogging behind for a few years and tried to figure myself and my passions out.

I study Psychology, Buddhism and Mental Health in school and soon realized that my interests lie in understanding what makes life fulfilling, and the importance of creativity and balance in our crazy hectic world. So, “The Optimist” was reborn to explore what it means to live a happy, harmonious life and to share my adventure through adulthood.

If you’re a fan of taking things slow, appreciating the little stuff and building a life you’re completely obsessed with, you’ll fit right in over here!

Ever the optimist,
