Hey hey, happy Valentine’s Day! The day of love has us dreaming about bouquets of beautiful flowers, yummy sweets and treats, and all the cheesy cards we can handle, and we’re totally okay with it! This holiday brings with it tons of love and encouragement from everyone around you, as well as plenty of fashion and decor inspiration, so we wanted to give you a few Galentine’s DIY ideas!VIEW POST
Happy (almost) 2017! It’s a new year, which means new beginnings, fresh starts, and 365 days to do whatever you wanna do! Are you getting back in the gym for an upcoming vacation? Maybe your goal is to cut out soda or sugar or spend less time on your phone. Do you want to read a few more books in 2017? Whatever your goals for the year, you can achieve them all with dedication and planning!
Everyone has their favorite tools for organization and planning that help them stay on track. Here at LJ, we have two tools that help us boost productivity, nail deadlines, and streamline goal accountability!
Enter stage right, the LJ Planner and our May Book Journals! In fun prints and colors, these items are not only adorable, they’re extremely functional as well. How do you stay organized? We’d love to get your feedback on your resolution organization!
We asked Team LJCo what their number one New Year’s resolutions are for 2017, and we got some great answers! What are your top resolutions for the new year?! Share them with us below!
Lauren: My New Year’s Resolution is to stop sweating the small stuff! Less stress, more gratitude! I also want to travel more!! My husband, Lance, and I never even went on a real honeymoon because we were in the middle of starting Lauren James so I would love to take some time to travel somewhere new at least once or twice in 2017!
Jennifer: My mantra is always “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.” – Dumbledore. LIVE…..EVERY…..DAY.
Candice: My New Year’s resolution is To travel Hwy 1 with my dog! 🙂 (@the.fynnstagram)
Jordan: In 2017, my goal is to get out of my comfort zone (I’m not a risk-taker at all) and to read! I love reading and learning new things, so my goal is to read 23 books this year because I’ll be 23 years old in October!
Lance: My New Years resolution is to be more present personally and professionally. I think work/life balance can get difficult sometimes, but I’m a firm believer that there is time for both at a high level of attentiveness.
Katie: “Do less with more focus.” My resolution is to become even more organized this year and take more time to enjoy the simpler things in life!
Kayla: This year my goal is to be more spontaneous because it’s okay to not have every minute of your life planned out like I usually do.
What’s winter break without all the sweet treats that people make around the holidays?! We can’t imagine a holiday season passing without sampling gingerbread cookies, homemade toffee, and lots and lots of anything chocolate! But maybe the best sweet treat of the season comes with the opportunity to decorate sugar cookies like a little kid again in your best tacky Christmas attire… Which is what we did here at LJ this year!
Friday, December 16th, was National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, so of course we had to celebrate in the office! We gathered everyone together in their best tacky Christmas-wear, and we had a blast decorating sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles! It was definitely a fun team-bonding experience, and it gave everyone a little break from work so they could get into the Christmas spirit!We think this may be a new Christmas tradition here at LJ! What’s your favorite holiday tradition that you partake in with your people? Let us know in the comments below!
Can you BELIEVE that there are only 19 days until Christmas?! This season has passed in such a blur that we can barely keep up! It’s already time for Christmas music, twinkly lights, hot chocolate, and all things Christmas (and we’re totally okay with it)!
Here at LJ, it’s so much fun getting everything prepped for the holidays and getting into the Christmas spirit so that everything looks perfect when y’all finally get to see it! Recently, we did part two of our Holiday 2016 shoot, and we’re so excited to finally be able to share it with you, but first, we wanted to give you a little behind-the-scenes sneak peek of how a Lauren James shoot really goes down!
We got to shoot at the Ravington, a beautiful new venue in our area, and can we just say… We are obsessed! If you’re in Northwest Arkansas and are looking for somewhere to hold an event, look no further! When we brought in all of our props and clothes, we were thrilled with how everything came together! We also got the most beautiful winter flower crowns from Zuzu’s Petals that were to die for! So here’s some fun behind-the-scenes snaps, and keep your eye out for our holiday pictures on Instagram now @LaurenJames! #StyledSweet
