Who am I?

Lauren Silvester


I’m Lauren, lifestyle and fashion blogger, luxury & high net worth marketing/brand consultant and a mummy of two girls. I’m dry and sarcastic, but you’ll get used to it.

14 years ago I moved from Bristol (where I lived while studying at Uni) to London to pursue my dream career working at top UK leading magazines. My first professional goal was to grow the boutiques section from one page to ten for Harpers BAZAAR. From there, I followed my passion for fashion and advertising, continuing with a career spanning almost ten years at various other magazines (including GQ, ELLE, Sunday Times Style etc.).

A few years ago I took the plunge and left my role overseeing Grooming at GQ (print & digital) to focus on my blog full time. Soon enough, I went on to have my two darling girls and now I’m back publishing blogs on my little slice of the internet. I’m passionate about choosing sustainable where possible, luxury fashion and mental health. 

The blog features fashion, lifestyle and my experiences in London. You will also find musings, notes and opinion on relevant topics facing modern women today with contributions from Charlotte Hope-Shannon.
