Somebody recently asked me what loshopgirl means. First off, I was so touched that she was intrigued about it enough to ask. I'm going to break it down for you.
The name Lauren has a few nicknames associated with it and this is one of them. This has been my nickname since I was little and it remind me of my friends and family.
This encompasses a lot of different things. My parents own a coffeehouse and I lived (and worked) there for a lot of my life and the concept behind a shop (people coming together, a community) became something weaved throughout my life. And yes, I also love to shop. But most importantly it signifies my community that I want to grow and the importance of all the communities I'm a part of.
You may have seen the campaign from Always called "like a girl" recently. I love the word woman and lady but at the end of the day, we're all the little girls we once were deep down and this is to remind me of that. I always want to keep the energy, optimism and hope that I had as a young girl. I also am very passionate about all issues relating to girls.
I'd love to connect with you on Twitter @loshopgirl
