IMG_9904Welcome to La Whimsy Writer! My name is Lauren Pickens and this blog is a peak inside of the chaotic, artistic wonderland that is my mind. I call this a lifestyle blog, but that doesn’t really sum it up. I write about the things that I love, hate, and can’t live without.

I post three times every week about everything thing from books, film, fashion, beauty, and current events. Blogging has been such a huge part of my life recently. I’ve been introduced to other opportunities as a writer through my blog and made some really amazing friends from my little corner of the internet.

One of the only things that has remained constant throughout my life is writing. I started this blog so that I would have a place where I could write what I wanted when I wanted and it’s been pretty freaking amazing so far. So stick around and for the ride or check out my writing page to see some of the other publications that I write for!

  1. Heeeey Lauren, I have nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award. I bet you are quivering in excitement… or perhaps you might be hitting your head against a wall repeating the phrase β€œNot another award, not another award!” You don’t have to accept this award, but I would love for you to pop over to my blog and come celebrate! There will be imaginary champagne, disco balls and a drumming cat! What more could one want? Hehe.

    • Thank you sooo much for the nomination Amanda!!!! This is by far the cutest award nomination that I’ve gotten yet! Also it means a lot because I adore your blog and your writing!


    • Thanks for following me as well! I really appreciate it! Your blog is really great, and a unique idea. I love Japanese food, and I’ve never had Korean cuisine before but your posts make me want to go out and try some!


    • Thank you for the kind words and encouragement, they are very much appreciated! This blog is the product of all the random bits of inspiration and cool things I find in the world so I’m glad that people are enjoying the writing I am creating πŸ™‚


    • Thank you! I’m glad you like my writing. I actually just made a move back to the South yesterday so I had to say goodbye to Philly but hopefully I’ll be doing some traveling in the future, I hope you’ll stick around and keep reading anyway, I will be checking out your blog as well πŸ™‚
