Hello! It’s lovely to meet you, my name is Lauren Slade and I started Style Elixir on a Sunday afternoon back in late 2012. If you’d like to know a little more about me, you can find almost everything you need right here.
Have a fashion or beauty dilemma? Travel question? Fitness or food query? Career conundrum? Contact me, I adore chatting with my readers.
I am passionate about so many things, but have the most fun when I’m seeing, talking, playing and experimenting with all things fashion, beauty, health, fitness and food. I won’t say I am an expert at any of it – just a girl who loves it!
Oh and don’t even get me started on travel… I adore exploring new cities, hotels, restaurants and cultures. From Paris to Pompeii, Alaska to Australia, Venice to Vietnam, Fiji to Florence, London, Greece, New Zealand and the USA to name a few. I have been lucky enough to experience some truly incredible destinations.
I’m probably just a girl like you. Yes, I adore pretty, shiny things, the way it feels the first time you wear a new outfit, the thrill of finding your perfect foundation, reading the latest celebrity news and trying to be as healthy as I can (while still indulging my love of all things sweet!). I value kindness, compassion, respect and good manners above anything and the opportunity to make a difference, however big or small.
In 2014 I founded the online marketplace Bloggers Closet. It’s the online shopping destination that gives you direct access to shop your favorite bloggers closets, you can buy fabulous clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories! If you’re a blogger with an overflowing closet, you can join us here. As a business owner, each day I diligently, passionately and creatively work towards achieving my goals. I hope to empower you to always dream BIG and know that it’s never too late to start living the life you imagined.
(One of my favorite inspiring reads, She book)
But even more than all this, my family, friends and cute puppy Ollie mean the world to me. They are amazing – and for that, I am forever grateful.
My hope is for Style Elixir to be truly interactive, just as you’re taking the time to read about me – I’d love to get to know about you! The thing that makes me spring out of bed each morning is awaking to read all your comments and emails. As soon as my alarm sounds (and often even earlier), I reach for my phone. It is the best start to my day! Contact me, comment on the posts or subscribe by email, Bloglovin’, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!
Now make yourself comfy, pour a glass of wine and let’s get to know each other. I look forward to sharing lots of fun and fabulous things!
