What We’re All About

In a world of selfies and #OOTD’s, LaurenKelp.com is a refreshing, witty, and unexpected approach to thoughtful living without the pressure of being perfect. We like to think of the site as a place where tips for entertaining on a dime, hostess with the most-ess moments, and feel-good life hacks for the busy gal-on-the-go, meet up and have cocktails.

What distinguishes the LK woman is her uncanny knack for cutting through the junk. She loves a good dinner party, never turns down an excuse to have people over, and is a self-ascribed aesthete.

While LaurenKelp.com features a variety of topics and columns, our selections lean towards a classic aesthetic with a “I’ve got to share this with my best friend” bent.

Lots of sites give you prepackaged content or tell you how to melt fat (which is gross if you think about it), we won’t. While we love a good outfit tip, we are the gals that you invite over to run your business idea by. Cooking for a date and have no idea where to begin? Call us, we can help. Mother-in-law is coming over and you need to impress her with your, shall we say, developing cooking skills – we know just the thing!

Thoughtful living without the pressure of being perfect, that’s us.
