Lauren is the guest editor over at Lucky' Magazine's tumblr this week! Here is part 2 of her Q&A with fans:
What's the best piece of advice youve ever been given?
My father told me that if you do something you love then you’ll never work a day in your life.
You said that you like to read/research food & good recipes, what are some good resources to look at?
I get most of my recipes online. One of my favorite sites is www.allrecipes.com. I love any site that has comments and reviews. Others who have already attempted the dish can give you tips or suggestions on what to change.
How do you decide when to take a fashion risk and when to play it safe?
To be honest I take most of my fashion risks when I know people won’t take note. A night out bar hopping with your girls (dive bars, not clubs) is a perfect night to test drive a new look. On the carpet I tend to play it safe most of the time. The press can be brutal but your friends are much kinder.
What are your top 5 staples for the summer?
1- Missoni Bikinis
2- White Camisole Top
3- Cutoff Jean Shorts
4- Striped Sweater
5- Paper Crown Floral Dress
What is your favorite hair style?
My favorite way to wear my hair is down in loose curls. It’s low maintenance and appropriate for most occasions. See www.thebeautydepartment.com for a tutorial on how I do my everyday curl.
What is the sweetest thing a fan has done when they met you? xo
I have so many wonderful stories of amazing things people have done for me. One that stands out is a young lady who has come to multiple signings and makes me these beautiful boxes that hold photos.
What are three things a girl should have in her wardrobe?
1- A basic black pump
2- A well fitting Little Black Dress
3- A perfect pair of jeans
What is your advice for young aspiring business women?
My advice is to get as much experience in the industry as possible. Whatever field you are interested in, take every opportunity you can to learn. School is great to teach you fundamentals, but there are limitations to what you can learn from a text book. Internships don’t usually come with a paycheck, but the experience is priceless.
