About Me


Hi there! I'm Lauren and this is my blog. I'm so glad you are here.

I’m a twenty-something creative lifestyle blogger living in Clearwater, Florida! I started Lauren Paints | a beautiful life in 2011 to share my passion for art, but it quickly transformed into something more. Now Lauren Paints | a beautiful life has become a space to share my passion for living beautifully. I blog about daily life, time spent with my dear daughter, Delainey Kate, and a little bit of everything that helps make life more beautiful. You will find recipes, date night ideas, parenting advice, style and beauty inspiration, fitness tips, honest rants, DIY project tutorials, and more here on the blog.

I had my darling daughter in September 2016 and she's become my whole world since then. I didn't plan on becoming a mommy blogger, but I guess you could call me that. I'm not a professional at motherhood, nor am I a certified crafter, fitness trainer, photographer, baker, or anything in between - but I do love to experiment and share my thoughts and experiences. My house isn't super organized, decorated perfectly, or in the best neighborhood in town...but it's cute. I make mistakes and sometimes totally mess things up. My life is chaotic and sometimes messy, but it's real. With all of that said...
I blog because I'm blessed. I blog because although my life isn't "picture perfect", it's pretty beautiful and I want to share it with you. Discussing travel, style, baking mishaps, parenthood, good deals, delicious food, and everything in between makes my soul happy. I get a rush sharing a new favorite product, a silly little story, or a new recipe with you. What I really aim to do is to find joy in the ordinary and document every last bit of it; I want to embrace the beauty of my every day life and encourage my readers to do the same.

A few of my favorite things:

My daughter - Delainey Kate | green smoothies | wine | the beach | yoga pants | photography | small shops | wild shoes | eclectic accessories | eco-friendly products | recycling | my nieces + nephews | healthy food | art in any form | soft blankets | trying new things | dresses with pockets | mermaids | vintage finds | all canines | social media | sushi | and more.

I'm so tickled you are here! Grab a glass of wine, sit down, have a look around and stay awhile.
Feel free to say hello and introduce yourself!
I'd love to get to know you!
