Welcome to Land of Lou…
Thanks for stopping by. I’m Lauren, my nickname is Lou, and I’m the creator of Land of Lou. I am in my early thirties and live in sunny San Diego, CA with my boyfriend Marc.
I am a butcher’s daughter, a makeup and beauty product junkie, a self-proclaimed comedian, and online shopaholic. I cannot imagine life without entertaining books, strong coffee, my iPhone, cocktails (more specifically vodka), and most importantly, great company.
I wanted a place to document my days and share information I have learned in my search to be the best version of me. Here you will find: real food recipes, safer beauty product recommendations and information, home design inspiration and of course, affordable fashion finds!
In my day to day professional life, I work for a real estate investment company. Think along the lines of flipping houses and development, not selling. I am not a real estate agent. Although I love real estate, sales has never been my thing. But I do have a strong love for design and seeing a product go from blah to bling! Growing up my Mom (“Sue Dawg” to her close pals), was always moving furniture around and redecorating on a tight budget which inspired my love for design early on. I hope in some way to inspire all of you too!
In 2016, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, an incurable Autoimmune Disease that is best described as chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. I have spent countless hours researching ways to reduce my inflammation and heal my digestive tract. This includes so much time spent learning about diet, lifestyle, and overall self-care to help my body and mind heal. Here on Land of Lou, I share information that is helping me live my best life. Whether that’s a real food, Paleo recipe or a non toxic beauty brand that I am obsessing over, I will share it all in the hopes to inspire others to live their best life!
