Meet Our Woman Crush, Lauren Nelson

Updated: Jun 10

This month we are crushing on my friend Lauren Nelson. I feel like every time I am around Lauren, I get an instant jolt of energy! Like taking a shot of Tequila! Lauren is funny as hell, positive and outgoing! She is the type that you want to go brunching with (God, I miss going to brunch) the type to get the party started, and the type to make you laugh! She serves fierce looks and is the ultimate fashionista! Let's learn more about her and how she is making the best use of her #SingleSeason.

What have you learned about yourself in the last year?

I've learned that I am better as an independent woman than I am in a relationship. I was in a serious long term relationship and now being free from that, Ive learned that I can survive without a man. I am content being alone and doing things alone now.

For example, I love going to the beach by myself and taking that time for me! I've also learned to love my body, my flaws, and to embrace change.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? 

I see myself being on a popular reality show, either Big Brother, The Circle, or Love Island! That's always been a dream of mine and I won't stop until I get on one of those shows! I would love to be financially stable enough to buy a house in the next 5 years and be on the way to starting my own family, with or without a man! Now let's manifest that!

How are you accomplishing your goals? 

I accomplish my goals by ALWAYS speaking things into existance! I am never okay with being complacent or stagnent, hints why I got out of that 7 year relationship. If something doesn't work out the way I hope for, I embrace change and find a new route to take!

What advice would you give women who are struggling being content during their single life?

My advice is to be content while single and just embrace being alone! That's the biggest thing! You need to really take this time to learn about what makes you, YOU! Figure out what you really want in a man and never settle for anything less! FinMy favorite thing about being single is self love! It's your chance to be selfish and do whatever you want, when you want! Some ways I practice self love are by taking baths while reading a juicy thriller novel and smoking a blunt! By keeping my apartment neat and tidy and constantly redecorating! By trying new recipes out or having "me time" dates and tryinf a new resturant by myself. My goal this year is go to a paint and sip by myself like Issa from Insecure lol!
