Hello everyone. My name is Lauren but those nearest and dearest call me L Bee. I started L Bee and the Money Tree as a way to hold myself accountable to my budget/finances but it turned into a passion for presenting personal finance for women in a fun, quirky, non-condescending way. I'm excited to be sponsoring "Messy.Dirty.Hair" this month as I have an obsession with all things girly-yet-unpretentious. I get so jealous and often long to be a fashion/lifestyle blogger, and Kelly is one of the best!
I am a quarter of a century old, and I hail from the South. After spending two years in New York City, my boyfriend and I moved to Atlanta with our dog Murray and we are in the middle of the most epic quarter-life change ever, but we love it! My experience in both the big city and the rural south colors my writing and I wouldn't change it for anything. I make my living as a professional writer and dabble in theater here and there. I enjoy decent wine (read-the ten dollar bottle, not the five), J. Crew, turning conversation into songs, off-beat humor and biographies. I also enjoy snuggles with my pup and the color pink, pretty much the two safest gift choices….ever.
1.) If you could have any super power what would it be & why?
I'd have a super-bladder. Then people would want to go on road trips with me more and I could sleep as late as I wanted without it waking me up :). I've often been teased about my squirrel sized bladder!
2.) What is something we don't know about you that we should?
I have held pretty much every job imaginable: fast-food employee, gymnastics instructor, professional organizer, performer, music/dance instructor, bar manager, even some time working on wall street--you name it, I've done it. I like to think this eclectic employment history lends itself to being accessible to all readers. Everyone can come from any economic background or point of view and relate to L Bee and the Money Tree because I have been there. It also makes for some great, crazy stories at dinner parties.
3.) It’s your last day on earth, what do you do?
During the day-I spend all of my money on something ridiculous, doing the things I want to do while holding loved ones close. At night (since there is no sleeping since it's the last day on earth) I party like it's 1999. You guys didn't know me in sixth grade, but when we thought the world was going to end at the dawn of a new millennium me and my dog, Jingles, partied hard.
