Lauren Nicholson Calligraphy was founded in 2010 with the belief that great style should be accessible & attainable for everyone, regardless of your budget. I strive to keep all the items featured here under $100 and if I do highlight something more expensive, I do my best to explain why I believe it’s a worthwhile & versatile investment. I am so grateful for the community that we’ve built & for the opportunity to connect with so many amazing women across the globe. I enjoy sharing my own personal style with you, along with affordable fashion finds, hair tutorials & beauty tips.

I’m a wife, mom of two & full-time blogger living in upstate Pasadena. My husband & I met in high school & have been married for 20 years – we have a 15-year-old daughter & 7-year-old son. Prior to starting my blog, I was a stay-at-home mom and, before my kids were born, I was a sales manager for a software company in Los Angeles (where I was born & raised). I was diagnosed in September 2012 and have adopted a Paleo diet to help manage my symptoms – I’ve learned that good health should never be taken for granted, so every day that I wake up & feel good is a blessing! When I’m not working on the blog or spending time with my family, you’ll find me doing Zumba, baking or playing the piano & singing.
