My name is Laura, and if you haven’t guessed it by now, I’m a Leo. I never know if that’s something to be proud of or to be ashamed of, but I choose to embrace it, nonetheless. That’s probably what any other Leo would do as well.
I’m a self-proclaimed empath, expressive, goofball, creative soul, dreamer, direct, extrovert with a dirty mind and great sense of humor (why does it sound like I’m on a dating website?). I like bubble baths, cruelty free makeup, my hair, food, travel, astrology, taking pictures, the beach, the city, the mountains, yoga, shopping, animals (specifically my dog), making others laugh and spreading positivity wherever I go. I’m a lover of the Earth and I’m passionate about trying to make it a better place. Animal-rights and environmental-rights enthusiast.
I have an immensely creative mind – in which I need multiple outlets for. I love to use my self expression through photos, aesthetics, themes, colors, mood boards, and anything else that I might dip my toes into. I do paint on occasion, and I tried music when I was little, but I just don’t have a gift when it comes to traditional arts. I can get easily discouraged when I’m not the best of the best at something (it’s a Leo thing). Sometimes, and most usually, that creative expression comes as words, through my fingers on a keyboard or pen and paper. I like to express, feel, communicate – and that’s what I intend to do here.
You’ve probably stumbled upon my blog for one of a few reasons: a.) you’re a friend, coworker or family member of mine doing your part in supporting me. If this is you, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart. Welcome to the other side of me.
Then there’s option b.) you know of me, you follow me on instagram, or went to school with me. I might know you, I might not, but I appreciate you. You’re the reason I’m doing this, so please don’t be a stranger.
And then we have c.) it’s two in the morning and you’re deep into hour 3 of binge-reading other blogs like this one, because you finished your series on Netflix and your pizza’s gone. Thanks for coming and I hope you enjoy your stay.
I created this blog to communicate. If you haven’t already read my Welcome blog post, I’ll link that here so you can see what I mean by that. Communication, especially through social media and networking, is absolutely incredible to me. Along with that, I’ve had a knack for art, makeup, hair, beauty, photography, and most things girly my entire life. I hope to make something bigger of this and myself eventually, but for now, I hope you enjoy the sass, sarcasm, gossip, rants, truths and dares that will go along with Laura the Leo. And I welcome you to the madness. Thanks for coming 😉
