Hey there creative twenty-something!

How are you? Struggling to embrace your creativity and share your voice? Trying to make your way through the college world and into your career? Or are you trying to start your own blog but finding yourself getting overwhelmed?

If you just shouted “ME” at the top of your lungs, then welcome!

I’m Lauren and I want to help. I share posts with ranging topics from college and career tips, to blogging tips, to how to embrace and share your creativity through bullet journaling, as well as just everyday lifestyle of a twenty-something.

Being a twenty-something myself currently trying to get settled into a career path, that is definitely more right-brained, I know exactly how you feel.

Why do I do this?

Because I want to! No really, that’s why.

When I started Creatively Lauren, I wanted a way to share my thoughts and opinions. As time went on, I realized that I wanted to help other people like me and share my experiences as a creative minded, anxious college student, now a college grad.

People are so used to seeing the perfect college experience, easy money and all of that jazz. That’s not me (mostly). Yes, I graduated in three and a half years, but it wasn’t easy. I worked a part-time job, I had quit an honors program, and I was in a completely different state.

Not everyone’s experience is easy breezy, and not everyone has their stuff together and that’s okay!!

I want to show you that it’s okay to not have it all figured out, you’re not alone.

If you are ready for more, check out these topics!

I’m always here to answer any questions that you may have for me! I love hearing from my readers; this wouldn’t be possible without you! For business inquiries, or any questions, you can contact me at:


See you around!
