If part-time was a profession, Lauren would be C.E.O. – P/T/ muse, model, bartender, fashion/costume designer, blogger, student, DJ, (oh my, the list continues). Fond of reading and writing, she's currently studying the inner workings of the magazine and publishing industries. Looking for an internship, a member of ed2010, and a recent trendhunter. A lover of art, Europe, and anything expensive, Lauren can't live without these four c's – coffee, cigarettes, champange and chocolate. Beware the observant eye behind plastic-framed glasses.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I am not a natural blond.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
I hate accomplishment. It's the definate end of a process. The process is the learning, mistake making, chaotic mess that makes doing anything worth it. Check the box, and move (or dance) on.
How do you define cool?
It's an essence of something. It's something people can relate to, for a billion reasons. Like the sun. The sun is cool, because we all need it, for different reasons and seasons. But that is just one example. It can be in so many things/people/places. If you can recognize it, then you know. If you can't, well, it can't be taught.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Observation. I'm like a scientist.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Finding things that make me go ooh, aah, err and wow.
What is your favorite trend?
Still hunting.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
It's like farming; pick the fruit before it ripens. Plant the seed. Watch it grow. Harvest. Repeat.
How do you reset to be creative?
It's a lifestyle. 24/7 job, with little pay and no perks. The best.
What inspires or excites you?
Everything. Dirt. The Louvre. Things that glow. And anything shiny, of course.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
World peace sounds pretty awesome.
