Paris, chocolate, fashion . . . oh, and intellectual pursuits, as well as ways to welcome more happiness into your life . . .

Captured regularly by photographers on her way to  fashion events and other galas, Lauren always looks stunning and clearly has an appreciation for fashion. Her pinterest shares this aesthetic as well as her images are classic, yet uniquely adhering to her particular taste of luxury and minimalism (or her assistant’s, I’m not sure).

Whether it is in the morning as I get ready for work or as I am welcoming the weekend sunshine into my kitchen as the rest of the house is waking up, I love my NPR app on my iPad or iPhone (or just listening to it on the radio).  What I love about the app is that I can organize my playlist to hear particular book, television or music reviews as well as news topics that capture my interest but I might have missed during my busy week. It’s a news station that I can design, which I love!
