Meet the Lady of the House

My name is Lauren, and I am the wife to a wonderful and supportive man and a stay-at-home mommy of a 2-year-old little ball of energy and personality.

I spent most of my life in Florida, did a little stint in Dallas, and now reside in the outskirts of Memphis. I earned my degree in advertising with concentrations in business and psychology from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and worked in the marketing industry for several years until deciding to leave the corporate world.

I am excited that you are here, and I hope to earn your trust and provide you with helpful information and recommendations.

My Purpose and Promise…

Deep in my heart somewhere is a woman who wants to be a minimalist, but closer to the surface is a woman who resonates with the modern consumer mindset: stuff will make my life better and easier. And so, here-in lies my ever-present pull between finding the products that WILL add value to my life, and saying no to the things that will just add clutter and distraction.

I want this blog to save you the time spent researching and returning; the frustration over junk products; and the money on things you aren’t going to use. 

With the blessing of Amazon (and e-commerce in general) placing virtually any product at your fingertips, comes the curse of the barrage of options and the black-hole hunt to find the BEST one. It’s exhausting. 

I want to do the work for you. I am an avid researcher, and I enjoy distilling all the data, facts, research, reviews and experiences down into an objective, no-BS, informed review or recommendation. 

In my posts, I promise that I will: 

  • Always be honest. 
  • Only focus on products I have personally tried.
  • Be as objective as possible and provide sound scientific research when applicable. 
  • Never recommend a product to you that I wouldn’t use myself. 

I hope you enjoy, and if you ever have any questions about my blog, my reviews, how I earn a living doing this, or anything else, please feel free to reach out.
